- Wilfred Ndidi

According to reports, Wilfred Ndidi, like John Mikel Obi and Essien, would like to move to the Emirates Stadium and partner with Thomas Partey in central midfield.This duo could be one to watch out for at Arsenal.

The Nigerian star is young and talented and signing a player of his kind will be worth the investment as he will serve a long-term plan at the club.

Arsenal could face some competition from Manchester United as they also want the 24-year-old midfielder, who is currently valued at €60 million. Arsenal could get Leicester City to lower the price since they have gotten the player's approval.

- Yves Bissouma

Arsenal have been following the transfer situation of Yves Bissouma for a while now and they could finally bring the Malian midfielder to the Emirates Stadium in the winter transfer window.

The highly-rated midfielder will be a great addition to Mikel Arteta's Arsenal team and he is a young and a cheaper option as well. The Brighton Hove Albion and Mali star is valued at €25 million, which is a bargain for a player of his skills.

Yves Bissouma will provide healthy competition for Granit Xhaka and provide cover for the position in case of an injury or suspension.

- Jack Wilshere

The former Arsenal player has returned to the club and he is training with the team. Arsenal could sign him officially and add him to the first team as a new addition.

Jack Wilshere is a good team player, and it will not cost the English club a penny to sign him to the first team. Jack Wilshere can provide quality depth to the holding midfield position and be a good mentor to the young players.
