Casillas, Suarez, And Llorente? Arsenal Are Ready For The Winter Window

Arsene Wenger who was criticized by fans for not spending cash on ready-made talents, answered his critics by signing Mesut Ozil from Real Madrid on deadline day for a club record fee of £42.4m. Money payed, is already paying dividends as Ozil has bagged 3 assists in two games in Arsenal colors.

But Arsenal are not yet done with their marquee signings. It is belived that more than £50m is available for Wenger to bring in new reinforcements in January. Now let’s see three possible (linked) transfer targets who can increase Arsenal title chances.

Iker Casillas

According to Marca, Casillas is ready to leave Real Madrid in order to maintain his no 1 spot in the Spanish squad for the upcoming World Cup in Brazil. Arsenal are heavily linked with a move for Casillas as Wenger is believed to be losing his patience with inconsistent Wojciech Szczesny.  Considering Casillas’ age, he would not cost much either. It’s a win-win deal if it’s done.

Manchester City are also interested in signing the five times La Liga winner.

Fernando Llorente

It’s no secret that the Gunners are desperate for a striker signing. Arsenal will try their best to bring in a new striker in January to share the goal scoring burden with in form Olivier Giroud.

The best possible option available could be Spain’s Fernando Llorente, who is currently struggling to earn a place in Juventus’ starting lineup. Now, the latest rumors claim that Arsenal are very much interested in bringing Llorente to Emirates and are ready to spend up to £30M for the Juventus man.


Luis Suarez to Arsenal?
Luis Suarez to Arsenal?

Suarez was Arsenal’s first and main target in the Summer window. But Liverpool were so adamant not to sell their best player to a team which they consider as a rival for the champions league spot.

With having good play makers like Ozil, Cazorla, and Wilshere in the squad, Arsenal need to have good wingers/forwards to convert the chances created by their midfielders. Suarez who can play as a forward and also as a winger fits the bill exactly. So, there is good chance that Arsenal may renew their interest in Suarez again in January. If Wenger can pull this deal successfully, it will definitely send shock waves across the footballing world.
