Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hinted that he will be active in January transfer market. FC Basel midfielder Mohamed Elneny has reportedly already completed his move to Emirates Stadium and Wenger has suggested that he could add more reinforcements to his side.
Following the 1-0 win over Newcastle United, he said: “I don’t give much away (about transfers) because I don’t know.”
“I want to talk about them, and hopefully, we are capable of doing something in the next ten days. It’s more about quality than quantity because our players will not stay out injured forever. Francis Coquelin is starting to run, Santi Cazorla will be back in mid-February, and Mikel Arteta is back now so, hopefully, if we can add one and, if needed, two maximum.”
The Gunners have been linked with a move for Napoli ace Lorenzo Insigne, by his agent. The Italian international is a Napoli youth academy product and has been with the club since he was 15 years old.
Player’s agent also revealed that Ligue 1 champions PSG are also interested in his client’s services.
Insigne’s representative, Antonio Ottaiano, told Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli: “PSG and Arsenal are clubs at the top of the world, and their interest is certainly gratifying. But right now Lorenzo is only thinking about Napoli.”
Primarily a winger, the 24-year old can also play as an attacking midfielder or supporting forward.
