Will any of these five players join Arsenal before February 1?

Arsenal Emirates

A round up of the best players linked with signing for Arsenal this week.

January is traditionally a quiet month for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal, but the Frenchman is still being linked with making one or two signings before the close of the current transfer window.

Here are five of the best players linked with signing on the dotted line for the Gunners this week.

Edinson Cavani (Paris Saint-Germain)

Seems to be linked with Arsenal every couple of days. It will be interesting to see if they’d pay a heavy fee, if the French side were open over his availability.

Isco (Real Madrid)

The Real Madrid midfielder has been infrequently linked with a move to the Premier League. At £64 million, it would be remarkable if Arsenal went after a deal.

Ilkay Gundogan (Borussia Dortmund)

More along the lines of what Arsenal would probably be willing to pay at £16 million. However, his history of injury problems will be a worry for the Gunners.

Alexandre Lacazette (Lyon)

Another good potential deal at £15 million. However, Wenger’s recent decision to let Lukas Podolski leave suggests he’s not pressing for a striker.

Loic Perrin (Saint-Etienne)

This is a rumour, which has been ongoing for a couple of weeks. The latest reports suggest that Arsenal have been put off by an £8 million price tag.
