Just few days to the January transfer window and players and managers are already making advances towards players and clubs of their interest.
According to Metro Arsenal are closing in on a surprise move to see 24-year-old Eintracht Frankfurt shoot stopper, Kevin Trapp to the emirate this winter.
The German has been on Arsene Wenger’s radar for some time now and Wenger is said to be on the lookout for possible replacements in every area of his team.
It can’t be argued that Arsenal’s progress this season has been stalled by injuries in all positions, with both Wojciech Szczesny and David Ospina once sidelined at the same time this season due to injuries.
Szczesny has continued to be the Number 1 shoot stopper, while Ospina has made a recent return to the team following his knee injury.
Arsene Wenger has been urge to make use of this transfer window to sing in players into the club to enable his team be in contention of the UEFA Champions League and also try to secure a place among the top 4 in the League.
All sorts of Speculations are going on, on who Wenger will sign this January. We inevitably need defenders, we should make moves for midfielders and it may not be entirely wasteful to land a striker, Dybala to be precise.
It could just be bluff from the rumour mill as Wenger would want to make maximal use of the £20m that is reported will be his kitty for the transfer window.
A goalkeeper is part of the defence but strength is needed more in the zone just in front of him. Maybe Szczesny still has issues but he is one of the best in the League and can only get better being just 24. Besides, he has good competition in Ospina and Martinez already.
