This is shaping up to be a crucial January transfer window for Arsenal. The news of Theo Walcott’s long-term injury has further increased the need for Arsene Wenger to buy a striker, and if reports are to be believed, he has wasted no time in compiling a list of potential targets.

The Daily Mail claims that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is still pursuing a loan deal for Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata, and that the the Gunners have opened talks with the Spanish giants.

However, if the deal fails to materialise, then Wenger is reportedly willing to splash the cash so as to secure a top class striker for the second half of the season.


Jackson Martinez is said to be the number one backup choice, with the Colombian striker available for a rumoured £33.2m.
