it is believed that the Gunners who are yet to bolster their squad with an outfield player this season will attempt to sign Celta Vigo winger Nolito in the January transfer window, this is according to the Mirror, who have credited the report to the Spanish media.
According to the report, Arsenal are willing to offer £14 million for the player who has a buy-out clause in his contract that will expire in 2017. But it is understood that the player is keen on a new experience and he has set his sight on Arsenal.
The 28-year-old former Benfica and Barcelona winger is currently in the Spanish squad that will take on Ukraine and Luxembourg in Euro 2016 qualifiers. Nolito will be looking to bond with his with Monreal, Carzola and Bellerin.
Meanwhile, Nolito and Ronaldo have scored five goals in La Liga each and are currently placed after Karim Benzema who has scored one more than the aforementioned duo. He also seems to be one of the most creative players in the League with three assist and 21 chances created.
During the summer, Arsene Wenger was heavily criticised by fans and pundits for his inactivity in the transfer market. Bar the purchase of Petr Cech from Chelsea, Arsenal did not sign any other player and the January transfer market might be the window for Wenger to bolster his squad.
Arsenal are looking thin on the wing – with the conversion of Walcott to a point man, Arsenal are left with Chamberlain and Sanchez are the natural wingers within their rank.
