After a terrible start, Arsenal have given themselves a realistic chance of finishing in the top four places at the end of the season, which will mean they can play Champions League football.
It has been solid progress from the Gunners in the last few months, but they know that the second half of the season is the key to their ambitions. They will probably be helped by the returns of Bacary Sagna and Jack Wilshere in particular, but could still look to sign players who could help them improve the quality of the team.
Thierry Henry, who has arrived on a loan move from New York Red Bulls, has made an instant impact by scoring a goal in the Leeds United game and could have a prominent role to play—especially during the African Nations Cup.
The signing of Henry has given them a huge lift and a boost to their confidence, but they would be better placed to finish in the top four if Wenger can make further additions to the squad.
This article is on some of the latest transfer stories involving Arsenal that have emerged this week—Arsenal fans hope they can bring in a high-quality player who could make the difference in the January transfer window.
