Will a struggling Arsenal rope in Paulo Dybala and John Stones? Rumors abuzz ahead of looming transfer window
Mikel Arteta and the management will look to add some quality strength to the side during the transfer window and hope to finish their campaign strong
It has been a woeful journey for Arsenal so far in the Premier League making their transfer window in January 2021 all the more important. The Gunners lost 2-0 to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday and have slipped to 15th place on the points table as they were outclassed by Jose Mourinho's men at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. With Thomas Partey further aggravating his injury, and the absence of a quality playmaker, Mikel Arteta, and the management will look to add some quality strength to the side during the transfer window and hope to finish their campaign strong.
As far as rumors go, it does appear that Juventus forward, Pablo Dybala is being offered to the Gunners. According to 90min, a host of Premier League sides is looking to add him to the side. Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, Chelsea, and Manchester City have all expressed keen interest in acquiring the Argentine international. Ligue 1 giants, Paris Saint-Germain are looking to add Dybala to fill in the void for Kylian Mbappe who is potentially leaving the club.
Arsenal might have break the bank for Dybala, but at this stage, they need goals, and they need someone who can be of creative assistance. However, 2019 saw Dybala reluctant to make a move and that might mean clubs will be wary of roping him in the side.
The other addition Arsenal is looking for is the addition of John Stones, Manchester City's defender. The Gunners have reportedly asked City to keep them updated about his availability. With 18 months left in his contract, Stones is facing a stiff challenge making it to the starting side with Ruben Dias, Aymeric Laporte, and Nathan Ake playing some classy football. The 26-year-old has just made three appearances in this season of the Premier League and was part of their win against Fulham on Saturday.
Arteta is reported to be a big fan of the former Everton man and his on-the-ball ability could be of massive help to the struggling Gunners outfit. They will be keen to lift themselves up from the rut they're in and time is running out for Arteta and his once-promising side.
