Arsenal may have to bring in a new playmaker in the January transfer window, while Mikel Arteta’s men will be battling for goals.
The Gunners have scored just four times in their last 10 Premier League games, and only one of those goals came from an open game.
With Mesut Ozil not even registered, Arsenal may have to sign another No. 10 in the January transfer window – but reportedly rejected one of them.
Calciomercato reported last week that Arsenal had been given the opportunity to sign Inter Milan playmaker Christian Eriksen … but they decided to turn him down.
The former Tottenham ace was a creative force in the Spurs, but Arsenal seemingly don’t think he can influence the Emirates Stadium.
So what’s next for Eriksen? He hasn’t impressed since joining Inter in January, and now they seem to want to get rid of him.
Gianluca Di Marzio quoted Inter CEO Beppe Marotta as saying Eriksen is now on the transfer list, believing it is “okay” for him to go elsewhere and ask for time to play.
Arsenal will have the opportunity to reconsider with Eriksen, who is now publicly available, and in the end it will be up to Mikel Arteta and Ed to decide whether the Dane is worth signing after all.
