Arsenal Transfer Prospects: 5 Players Fans Desperately Desire in January
Arsenal fans certainly have their fair share of players they would like to see in the club's red shirt.
No football fans is ever completely satisfied with their team, and Gooners everywhere certainly have their preferences for new personnel.
Despite that there are a few players whose names are usually on the tip of every fan's tongue.
Arsenal could do with reinforcement in every third of the pitch to become a significant title-challenging team.
Some of these players would join the club if fans got their wish.
Here are five players Arsenal fans will desperately desire in January.
Isco really made himself known last season with some excellent displays to help Malaga into the Champions League.
He did this while playing alongside his former teammate, and current Arsenal player, Santi Cazorla. Despite the departure of Cazorla, and another important Malaga player, Samuel Rondon, Isco has gotten off to a good start this season.
The young Spaniard is now the star of Malaga's attack and has four goals and two assists to his name this season.
Isco would have to line up centrally for Arsenal behind the forward with Cazorla playing out wide. He would provide the club with another technician as well as a decent goal threat around the box.
Stevan Jovetic would be another great attacking addition to the squad.
The Montenegrin striker could have been an ideal replacement for Robin van Persie. He has similar technical qualities and the ability to finish well.
Jovetic has been the leading light for Fiorentina during his few seasons in Italy and could very well be open to a move to a historic club such as Arsenal.
He is currently in pretty good form this season with six goals and three assists.
Arsenal is without a true experienced defensive midfielder after the departure of Alex Song. Mikel Arteta has certainly filled that role admirably, but he would benefit from a player like Yann M'Vila joining the club.
M'Vila's form so far this season hasn't been great, but a change of scenery could be just what the French player needs.
Provided he returns to the form that attracted the interest of some of Europe's top clubs, M'Vila could slot into the side to provide greater stability defensively. This would give the attack-minded players the freedom to do their jobs.
Etienne Capoue is another French midfielder who could add more steel to the Arsenal midfield. Arsenal had been linked to the player over summer.
A January move may not be out of the question.
Abou Diaby is currently the most physical presence in the Arsenal midfield, but his constant problems with injuries leave the club lacking in that department.
Capoue would have to work for a starting role but would be a great addition in terms of depth as the club searches for silverware.
For the most part, goals have been hard to come by for Arsenal this season.
Fans would like a clinical, mobile forward who could adjust to the Premier League quickly.
Robert Lewandowski fits the bill.
The Polish forward has five goals and five assists this season. Lewandowski would almost certainly take the starting striker role and give Arsenal formidable attacking depth in the process.
