The Six Players that Arsenal Aim

Entering the beginning of the year, usually in world football the transfer window will open. It is commonly known as the winter transfer window. Similarly in English Premier League, all clubs in this competition have started buying and selling players. One of them is Arsenal, who are reportedly eyeing several players to fill the composition of the squad in the second half of this season.

As is known, this season Arsenal have struggled with many defeats so that they are at the bottom of the standings. However, in the last few matches, the Gunners have begun to win so that they are currently in 10th place in the standings.

There have been several positions that have become problematic in the Arsenal squad this season, but the main problem is the loss of motivation and the mentality of the players who are currently deteriorating. From the rumors circulating, at least 6 names are being targeted by Arsenal, including:

Julian Brandt
This German national team player was known to be very good when he was still playing for Bayer Leverkusen. However, when he was in Borussia Dortmund’s uniform, Brandt’s performance is considered decresing. With Borussia Dortmund, Brandt was not even the main player. Reportedly Arsenal are eyeing Julian Brandt to replace Mesut Ozil’s role and to add options in Arsenal’s attack line.

Joan Jordan
The 26-year-old player who plays as a central midfielder currently plays for Spanish club Sevilla. Joan Jordan has been a mainstay in Sevilla’s midfield since the start of last season until now. As is known, Arsenal are quite porous in midfield and often rely on attacks from the wing. The purchase of Joan Jordan will provide tactical options so that Arsenal can build attacks through midfield.

John Stones
The 26-year-old who plays as a center-back is one of the most expensive defenders Manchester City has bought. This England national team player had become a mainstay in Manchester City’s defense in the 2018/2019 season. Nonetheless, since the start of the 2019/2020 season, John Stones has not been able to show his best performance to date.

Arsenal management is quite interested in recruiting John Stones because it is believed to have quality in defense. Arsenal’s defense has also been a problem in the team this season.

Tariq Lamptey
This British player of Ghanaian blood was one of the best graduates from Chelsea U23 in the 2018/2019 season. This made Brighton & Hove Albion not hesitate to bring Lamptey from Chelsea U23 in the winter transfer window in the 2019/2020 season.

In the current Arsenal squad, it is reported that Hector Bellerin is getting closer to his childhood club, Barcelona. The name Tariq Lamptey is an option if Bellerin leaves.

Omar Rekik
The 19-year-old center back currently plays for the junior team of German club Hertha Berlin, Hertha Berlin II. For the record, Hertha Berlin II currently plays in the German League’s fourth caste competition, namely Regionalliga Nordost.

Even though he plays for a team in the fourth tier of the German League, Omar Rekik is considered potential enough and has attracted the attention of Arsenal management to recruit the player.

Rekik has also studied at the Feyenoord Youth academy, Manchester City Youth, PSV Eindhoven Youth, and Marseille Youth. It is reported that Omar Rekik will be recruited by Arsenal to play in the Gunners’ junior team.

Fabio Vieira
The 20-year-old player who plays as an attacking midfielder is a player from the Portuguese club, FC Porto. The player who was born in the City of Santa Maria de Feira, Portugal is a player from the FC Porto academy who was just promoted to the FC Porto senior team at the start of this season. In his first season playing for FC Porto senior team, Fabio Vieira immediately showed his quality and got lots of playing minutes.

It is noted that the U21 Portugal national team player is an important player for FC Porto in the Portugal NOS League and also the European Champions League this season. The name Fabio Vieira is one of the other options in Arsenal’s midfield which is considered quite bad this season.
