All the latest Arsenal transfer news including the latest on the Gunners January transfer plans. Arsenal are Premier League league leaders on Christmas Day for the second successive year.

After avoiding defeat against Liverpool at the weekend. However, the Gunners’ job is far from complete yet.

One game behind the half-way mark, Mikel Arteta’s men are one point above Liverpool and Aston Villa and six above Manchester City – who did have a game in hand. So far, so good, but Arsenal have plenty to do yet.

Arsenal to hijack another Man City player

A centre-forward, holding midfielder and creative-minded attacker have all been tipped to be at the top of the wishlist and according to reports, a move for Manchester City star Bernardo Silva could be on the cards.

It’s understood that the Gunners have the opportunity to sign the Portuguese international due to a release clause in his contract at the Etihad Stadium. The Daily Star are reporting that Silva has a £50million buyout which was added during negotiations with City.
