Top 5 Arsenal Transfer Targets 2014 – January Window

by Sameer Arshad | Posted on Tuesday, May 28th, 2013 | 14

Arsenal finished yet another season without any glory, fans are getting frustrated Arsene Wegener is under pressure for some silverware or atleast a title challenge, players moving out of the club all in all things are not so rosy at Emirates from the last few years. Going into the 2013-2014 summer transfer window Arsenal fans will be hoping for couple of good players in different positions of the park and possibilitly of a serious title charge.

Arsenal did finish in the top four to secure the Champions League football next season but making it to the Champions League and actually having a go at it are two different things, they need players who can help them to be real contenders again and summer transfer window is the best time to buy some young hungry players. So what are the players Arsenal might target ? here is the list of few players of which few will be heading to London.

Signings Completed: None
Players sold/Released: Andrey Arshavin, Denilson, Sebastien Squillaci, Martin Angha , Craig Eastmond
What they are looking for: Goalkeeper / striker

Transfer Targets:

  1. Gonzalo Higuain (Real Madrid)
  2. Stevan Jovetic (Fiorentina)
  3. Simon Mignolet (Sunderland)
  4. Wayne Rooney (Manchester United)


Stevan+Jovetic arsenal 2013
Stevan Jovetic – Fiorentina
A player Arsenal has been linked with in the past as well but as I am writing today, Reports are in that Arsenal Wenger is regusing to pay Fiorentina asking price and that is the stumbling block in the transfer, but My guess is Arsenal will buy him as he is the prime summer transfer target but they need to hurry for his signature or it will be too late with shiekh clubs lurking PSG and Man City.

Arsenal transfer target David Villa 2013
David Villa – Barcelona:
We all know what happened in January window when Arsenal want to buy Villa, David Villa wanted to move to Emirates but Barcelona refused to sell him but in the summer as they have already bought Naymar most probably David Villa is heading to Arsenal, and he is the kind of a players Arsenal really need right now to finish of the chances they creat.

Valdez arsenal 2013 transfer
Victor Valdez – Barcelona:
He is not signing in new contract with Barcelona unless things change dramaticly, and with Pepe Raina heading to Barcelona it is very likely that Arsenal will snap him for the competition with Value of £10M he wont be a bad buy with age of 31 and as a keeper a few good years ahead of him.

Etienne+Capoue arsenal transfer 2013
Etienne Capoue – Toulouse
A defensive midfielder in the mould of Patrica Viera he is the kind of a player in age of just 24 Arsenal would or maybe I should say should love to have in the team right now, to bring in some steel in the centre of the park. He is a very solid and classy player and will be available at £12m in the summer tranfer window. Rumours were that Wenger failed in with a bid to sign him in January.

Maxime Gonalons – Lyon
Another player who is in Arsenal transfer list, and Wenger has traveled to france couple of times to see him play in the French League. He could be availabe at around £8million and will be a good adition to the team.

      united fans

  • Ishmail Daramy

    we the fans need better players for next season because we need thropies now. wenger and the management should be ready to buy good players no matter what their price may be.

  • mic mikhail

    Rooney and Felliane will really rescue Arsenal from drought. the boardshould help us and buy both of them. they should not sell Koscielny.

    • salvador

      I really would like to be a football player when I’m older

    • TSX

      Arsenal selling Koscielny?

  • peter

    It will be good for arsenal, If wenger uses this window shopping to strength arsenal’s team.

  • gary beefy Hamilton

    Wenger needs to sign a player in every position of class to launch a attack on the premier this year saurez tiago williams and victor valdez

    • TSX

      we do not need a Goalkeeper, have faith in Szechny and we do need a Centre Back like David Luiz or Vincent Komapany and another Striker like Diego Costa or Robert Lewendoski. With this, we will definitely get the EPL title!

  • stephen ouma

    We need agood defence to replace sagna and one striker .So Mr wenger should see that what we need this season is atrophy

      I give up, but before I give up, Wenger’s arrogance must stop…tension and nothing but tension every transfer season. ADVICE: Two attackers, one strong holding midfielder and one strong defender ae just enough. Give me the money and I’ll do that within a week or so. How and why honestly do you want Higuain just to go jokingly like that, organise fundraising rally at emirates and we can get and additional $3m for higuain if that’s pinching board and wenger. My wife says being an Arsenal fan has made me a very patient and courageous wonderful man for her!

    year in year out we have been waiting to see new faces at emirates but,every time promises which never ends.i wonder when wenger say the current squad can do wonders i disagree with him.he is making emirates airline to miss business because people think the airline has no new ideas.

  • Simion kogo

    This season is a good beginning for Arsenal but Wenger should one strong and creative striker with one centre back,without doing so Arsenal can’nt go anywhere or win any trophy.
