Arsenal were linked with a number of wingers in the just concluded summer transfer window but was unable to bring any to the Emirates and it appears Wenger hasn’t shelved the idea of signing a winger in the nearest future.
Bruma already has one goal and two assists to his name this season and should he continue to impress, Wenger could make his interest concrete in January or next summer.
