Key Arsenal target hands in transfer request

Ivan Perisic and Ben Bitton

Arsenal beat Chelsea 2-0 in their most recent Premier League match, a result which will count for little if the Gunners fail to beat the relegation-threatened Cardiff, who will be emotionally charged with the search for Emiliano Sala ongoing.

Arsenal are reportedly ready to make Manchester United target Ivan Perisic their second highest paid player in the wake of the Croat handing a transfer request.

The Croatia worldwide has emerged as Unai Emery's key target for the January transfer window, with Arsenal having already seen an offer turned down an offer to take the 29-year-old on loan until the end of the season with a €40m option to buy.

"[Suarez] is the same [as Perisic]".

However, there are a number of problematic positions in the team and the Gunners are now trying to take full advantage of the ongoing transfer window to enhance their team. And we are also in the same situation in that it is hard to find one different and better player in this transfer window.

'But also we are doing good things, improving.




Emery confirmed Arsenal are looking at two players specifically and retains hope both may arrive, adding: "Between nil and two [signings]".

'When we have the possibility to buy different players with big quality to help us with their performance, we can do that.

Emery hinted his reluctance to recruit defensive reinforcements, despite injuries to Sokratis Papastathopoulos (ankle) and Laurent Koscielny (jaw).

"We have enough players, centre-backs in the squad", he said.

"Only we're having a lot of injuries and a lot in this position. If we brought in another player, and all the other players we have are well to play, then we could maybe have a problem in the future".
