Arsenal need to be major players when the transfer window opens again in January.
With January's window approaching, teams have been linked with every player who's rumored to be leaving his team. Such is the way news happens during the time leading up to and through the two transfer windows.
Arsenal is a team that is always a major player during transfer periods. As one of the top teams in England, they have to be diligent during this time if they want to stay on par with the competition.
This January will be no different. In fact, it might even be more important, as the competition is as stiff as ever leading up to the winter breaks, and Arsenal are currently on the outside looking in.
High-profile transfers will fail almost as often as they are successful, but that shouldn't shy Arsene Wenger from exploring every avenue to make his team better.
With that in mind, remember that not every transfer is guaranteed to happen or that not everyone is in agreement of targets. These are just players of great quality that I believe Arsenal must at least make an attempt at negotiations with.
