Edu’s three-man shortlist presents double transfer masterstroke as Arsenal avoid £135m mistake

The league season has reached its halfway point, which also means that the January transfer window has opened so clubs can strengthen their team for the final stretch of the campaign.

Arsenal have some unfinished business from the summer transfer window by not strengthening in the midfield positions and could attempt to plug the gaps over the next month.

The January window also presents the opportunity for clubs to sign players via a pre-contract agreement if their current deal is set to expire within the next six months.
