Gunners targeting Premier League performers to bolster their squad.
Despite a 3-0 win over struggling Burnley this weekend taking them back into the top four and summer signing Alexis Sanchez hitting top form, Arsenal have still had a relatively disappointing start to the season and look a long way off the quality of early leaders Chelsea.
This is a situation that Arsene Wenger will continue to look to remedy in January, with reinforcements needed, particularly in defence where the Gunners certainly look short on depth and quality.
It would seem that Wenger is keen not to stray too far away from home in his pursuit of new blood, however, with these five domestic talents all seemingly on the Gunners’ wishlist:
Ron Vlaar (Aston Villa)
The Villa skipper is one of the most wanted men in the Premier League currently as he continues to stall on signing a new contract with the West Midlands club, with Arsenal interested in securing a bargain move for the experienced Dutchman.
