Wenger himself confirmed he would sign only “top players” in winter, and this has seen the club linked to an avalanche of star players in recent weeks.
Arsenal are among the list of clubs tracking Pacos De Ferreira youngster, Diogo Jota, according to reports.
The 19 year old is carving a niche for himself in the Portuguese league and played a key role in Pacos’s 2-1 win over Vitoria Setubal.
Benfica are currently in pole position for the player’s signature after they have reportedly contacted Pacos Ferreira over the availability of Jota and talks are still ongoing, but a move to the Premier League could be on the cards if Arsenal or West Ham United; who sent scouts to monitor the youngster place a bid for his services.
However, He is already getting regular playing time at Pacos Ferreira at 19 year of age, something that is likely not to happen if he departs this January transfer window, as he would surely be loaned out to gather more playing experience. At Arsenal he would develop properly as the Gunners have a very good youth set up which would aid his development and if he keeps replicating the form that he is currently showing in Portugal.
