Scouting For Wenger: 2 Players To Sign And 2 Players To Avoid In January

With Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger seemingly more committed to the transfer window than ever, the winter window should be an eventful one for the Gunners, though not all names linked with the Emirates Stadium side would be wise signings.

Should Avoid 1:

Alexandre Pato

Pato to Arsenal?
Pato to Arsenal?

The former AC Milan man has undoubted talent, but his constant injury problems are not something that Arsenal will want to inherit. The Corinthians striker is one of the fastest players on the planet, and that would suit the Arsenal system well, while speed is also a trait that most successful Premier League players share. Understood to be available for around £10m, it seems like a smart investment, but too many times in the past has an Arsenal player become invaluable to the squad just to have lengthy injury lay-offs, as that is the current problem with Thomas Vermaelen and Lukas Podolski, they do not need another.
