Arsenal Transfer News: Latest January 2022 window player signings, loans & sales

After a strong summer in the player transfer market, Arsenal now find themselves pushing for a place in the Champions League this season, and manager Mikel Arteta has finally started to assert his tactical influence on the team.

The Gunners are now firmly in the race for fourth place and are still in the mix for the Carabao Cup (League Cup), but there are gaps in the squad that need to be filled, starting up front.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s momentary banishment has created a need up front, with Alexandre Lacazette returning just three goals in his 14 league appearances, although the Frenchman has strengthened from the Aubameyang shelf. And while Gabriel and Ben White have been solid in central defense, the club could also use an upgrade over Rob Holding.
