Arsenal Transfer Rumors: 4 Latest Players Rumored to Be Coming to the Emirates
The transfer rumours continue to roll in as Arsenal looks to strengthen their squad before the January window closes in.
With the Gunners currently sixth in the Premier League and facing a tough task in the Champions League help is needed.
The attacking third especially needs a boost but the club could also use strengthening in the midfield and defense.
While the players on this list may not all be what the Gunners need they have been the latest linked to the club.
Here are they are.
Isaac Cuenca has been linked via the Express with a move to Arsenal.
Cuenca broke into the Barcelona first team last season but has not featured in 2012/13 season due to injures.
While his addition would certainly provide the club would depth out wide he is not the quality addition the club needs.
Benteke has been in great form for the Villans in his debut season contributing 11 goals and eight assists in all competitions.
The Metro reports Arsenal has opened talks with Barcelona forward David Villa.
Villa has been strongly linked with Gunners during the entire window and the Metro believes the London side is getting serious about a deal.
Signing Villa would undoubtedly strengthen the Arsenal attack as they look to achieve their goals for the season.
Whether or not a deal can be done before the transfer window closes later this week is yet to be seen.
Here's more from ESPN: Bastia president Pierre-Marie Geronimi claims to have fielded phone calls from Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.
"We have not received any firm offer from Arsenal and, thus, there is no question of the €5 million reported," Geronimi is quoted as saying.
Arsene Wenger's eye for talent can't be questioned and if Thauvin shows potential it would certainly be a good buy for Arsenal's future.
Signing Thauvin, if it really is in Arsene Wenger's plans, would be better done in the summer as their are more pressing needs for the club.
