Arsenal will be keen to make winter signings to ensure they do not fall behind their rivals. The likes of Manchester City, Aston Villa, and Liverpool could be looking to add reinforcements before the window slams shut.

Despite reports, and the Sunday Mirror reporter believes it’s going to be a quiet month for the Gunners unless there is a significant departure.
