Arsenal are already looking ahead to the January transfer window and according to The People, Arsene Wenger is set to raid Barcelona again and sign another of their top prospects.

Barcelona midfielder Thiago Alcantara is a top target for the Gunners and it was thought that he would come to Arsenal this past summer transfer window as part of the deal that took Cesc Fabregas to Barcelona. But that was not the case and now Wenger will try sign the 20-year-old in the January transfer window as he looks to continue to bolster our midfield.

Alcantara made his senior debut for Spain against Liechtenstein in midweek after turning his back on the country of his birth, Brazil. This just goes to show how talented the players is: playing for Spain is not easy these days as there are so many talented players right now.

If Arsenal are able to sign Alcantara, that would be a big signing as I can see him taking over from Fabregas and possibly going on to be an even better player than him.

    I wish this would materialise cos we need creativity in the meddle of the park, Aterta & wilshere are good but we stil need one or two more 2 make the goal scoring opportunities higher i think thiago is very good

    We dont need mouth-signing,what we need is real signing.Until I see him in Arsenal shirt,I can’t be expectant.

  5. Cris. says:

    You are aware that he has a 90M Euro buy out clause? He wants to stay at Barca. He and Fabregas will be first choice in 3 years

    whatever the case maybe, arsenal still need more creativity in the midfield and to me it can only come from spain for now.
