After entering the January window on the brink of losing three first team players, the North London club seems to be in their best transfer window in a decade. With Alexis Sanchez joining Manchester United, Arsenal and getting Henrikh Mkhitaryan as a straight swap. We will be considering deals that are likely to happen before the close of the window.
The signing of the Armenia international is officially done. The just turned 29-year-old attacking midfielder has suffered for form at United and will have the opportunity to redeem his career at the Emirates. It’s a deal that Arsenal will also enjoy as he will add to the quality of attacking option at Arsenal especially at the Europa league.

Arsenal chase of Borrusia Dortmund striker is stepping up and it is almost set to happen this winter. The Gabonese international who won the Bundesliga golden boot last season is set to leave German.
His social media activities even shows that the link with Arsenal is concrete and set to happen. Reports have it that he has agreed personal terms with Arsenal and what is left is for Arsenal to agree a fee with Borrusia Dortmund. Arsenal CEO, Ivan Gazidis and newly recruited chief scout, Sven Mislintat are currently in Germany to negotiate a deal for the striker. Dortmund seems ready to let him go as he has missed their last two games and doesn’t seem he will make the team again. It will be a great addition if it eventually happens.
One player that has consistently been a player that has been on Arsenal’s radar for the last few transfer window is Riyard Mahrez. The Leicester City winger has been in incredible form all through the season especially since the appointment of Claude Puel as Leicester’s boss.
The link this winter has been cooled since Arsenal swapped Sanchez for Mkhitaryan but latest reports have it that Arsene Wenger is still keen on adding more players to the squad. It will be a disappointment to see that bunch of talent not join this winter.
Early last week, Arsenal showed interest in Boudreaux winger, Malcom. The 20-year-old is a sensation youngster to watch out for. The plan was to use him as the replacement for the departed Theo Walcott, but it seems a deal may take time to be agreed.
A fee of around £40m has been quoted to be enough to bring him to the Emirates. With Arsenal claiming to believed that the fee is ridiculous for a player who has only had one and half full season in top flight, it will be unreasonable to pay the price. But latest report has it that Arsenal could agree a deal with Boudreaux this winter and sign all agreement in which will make the player move at the end of the season. There is still a week to the close of the transfer window and an agreement could still be reached.
