Tyrone Mings - Arsenal's most likely transfer window deal

Tyrone Mings to Arsenal is the deal we see as most likely for the Gunners.

Like every January a number of big names are linked to Arsenal and this year is no different.

Edinson Cavani is the blockbuster addition touted for a transfer, but instead a far more low-key addition is most likely.

A far more likely addition, and arguably the most realistic is Arsenal pushing to sign Tyrone Mings from Ipswich Town.

Earlier this month manager Arsene Wenger did not deny interest in the player, who has been outstanding for Ipswich Town this season.

A former Southampton trainee, he was wanted by Crystal Palace in the summer, but now Arsenal is expected to be his impending destination.

Most regularly deployed as left-back, The Telegraph reported earlier this month that Arsenal believe he has the ability to play long term at centre-back.

The sticking point is likely to be the price, with a figure of £8 million speculated, while other reports claim Ipswich want as much as 10 million, which Arsenal would be unwilling to stretch to.

It is also very possible that to achieve knocking down the price, Mings may not even play for Arsenal this season.

With Mick McCarthy's Ipswich second in the Championship and eyeing automatic promotion, the Tractor Boys could push for a deal which will see Mings loaned back to them until the 2015/16 season.

This could be not only in the club's interests, but that of the player as he would get more regular football than at the Gunners immediately.

Other deals Arsenal could push for: William Carvalho, Winston Reid, Moussa Sissoko, Marcelo Brozovic.
