Arsenal plot move for pair of January reinforcements after stuttering season start

Arsenal slip to concerning defeat

Arsenal slumped to their third loss in four games, and by far their most damaging, as Everton came from behind to beat the Gunners 2-1.

In a first half lacking in quality, Everton had the ball in the net through Richarlison, before a marginal offside call ruled it out.

60 seconds later, it was Arsenal’s turn to have the ball in the net, and this one stood. In a rare moment of quality, Kieran Tierney’s cross from the left was met by Martin Odegaard, who rolled the ball past Jordan Pickford.

Everton, however, battled on. Winless in 8 games, the Toffees notched an equaliser through Richarlison, who nodded home after a Demarai Gray strike had come back off the crossbar.

Then, in stoppage time, it was Gray who had the last laugh.

Cutting in from the left-hand side, he unleashed a thunderous strike that crashed in off the post, leaving Arsenal to travel back down from north London with nothing to show for their efforts.

It means that the Gunners have now tasted defeat five times this season, and currently leaves them in seventh place in the Premier League, far from their targets.

Action to be taken?

Now, Mikel Arteta could be set to strengthen his squad with experience in the January transfer window.

Sky report that the red side of north London is a potential destination for former Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum, who has struggled since he moved to Paris Saint Germain in the summer on a free transfer.

It is thought that PSG are open to letting the Dutchman leave on loan in January, which could suit Arsenal to a tee given Thomas Partey’s poor form and impending departure for the Africa Cup of Nations.

Meanwhile, Italian outlet La Republicca, the Gunners are willing to part ways with 35 million euros in order to prise Swedish star Dejan Kulusevski away from Juventus.

Would these two moves help Arsenal to get back on track this season?
