Here are five players linked with signing for Arsenal from the past week.

Arsenal continue to be linked with plenty of top quality players in the transfer market ahead of the January window.

Here are five of the best players linked with signing for the club this week.

Pedro (Barcelona)

Pedro has been linked with Arsenal for a number of weeks, with the club reportedly still keen on a deal which could cost around £26 million.

Lucas Silva (Cruzeiro)

Not a new name in this feature. Real Madrid were thought to be dead certs but uncertainty from Carlo Ancelotti has cleared the path for Arsenal to make a move.

Virgil van Dijk (Celtic)

Arsenal need a defender this January and the Celtic man continues to be mentioned in reports about targets for the club.

Rolando Aarons (Newcastle United)

Aarons has been linked with the club by the Daily Star after he rejected a contract offer to commit his future to Newcastle United.

Krystian Bielik (Legia Warsaw)

£1.6 million for the ‘next Patrick Vieira’ won’t look bad at all if the Pole turns out to be half as good.
