Even though Arsenal are now trying to sign Mykhaylo Mudryk, they haven’t let that stop them from looking into other possible transfers before the January transfer market opens up next month.
After helping Arsenal defeat West Ham 3-1 on Boxing Day, Eddie Nketiah showed that they can win without Gabriel Jesus.
However, the Gunners are still looking for striking reinforcements despite Shakhtar Donetsk rejecting their initial offer for Mykhaylo Mudryk. Joao Felix of Atletico Madrid has supposedly been replaced by Mikel Arteta, and it has also been stated that Arsenal has not yet made an offer for one of their main midfield targets.
Arsenal on Milinkovic-Savic
Despite not having made any offers for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic of Lazio, Arsenal is reportedly “in pole position” to sign the Serbian international.
As they pursue an unexpected Premier League title, the Gunners are looking to improve their midfield options ahead of the rest of the season. Long-time target Milkovic-Savic may finally be on the verge of joining the team, per the most recent reports.
Although it is believed that Arsenal are in the lead for his signature, Corriere dello Sport also asserts that Lazio and the player’s agent, Mateja Kezman, have not yet received any bids.
Arteta seeks an alternative to Felix
If the most recent reports are to be believed, Arsenal’s interest in Atletico Madrid striker Felix may soon come to a stop.
The Gunners are hoping to find a substitute for the injured Jesus, and a loan agreement for Felix through the conclusion of the current campaign has been brought up more than once. It has also been made known that Arteta is currently eyeing a different La Liga striker.
El Confidencial reports that the Spaniard has “doubts” about the Portuguese attacker. Although the Gunners have already been associated with Ferran Torres of Barcelona, the identity of the other target has not yet been made official.
