Are these the 2 transfers Arsenal have ready for January?

Arsenal fans everywhere are crossing their fingers and hoping for some good business to be done by Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal scouting and transfer team when the January transfer window opens in about five weeks time. It seems that the club has money and the Frenchman has already admitted that he is looking to sign a defender at the very least.

Most fans, pundits and former players think we need more than that, however, with a tough tackling, workaholic, combative midfielder the top of most of their lists. And according to the latest transfer rumours, the Gunners may already have these two positions sorted out with the transfer of the players in a very advanced state.

Is £10m transfer bid enough for Arsenal to sign top defender?

If this latest Arsenal transfer runour is true, it could be the answer to the Gunners’ current defensive troubles and could mean that Arsenal will be much stronger in the latter part of the season and perhaps be able to mount a proper Premier League title challenge.

But it will not help the Gunners in the Champions League, because Fabian Schar is already cup-tied after starring for his Swiss club Basel, who look set to beat Liverpool into the knockout phase. But even though his club are doing very well in Europe, Schar has indicated that he is ready to leave, according to a Metro report, and that has alerted Arsenal who are now preparing a £10 million bid for the defender in the January transfer window.
