At the start of the season, some Arsenal fans feared that they were about to embark on a disastrous campaign. They lost each of their first three league games without scoring a goal, including a 5-0 thumping at the hands of Manchester City.

However, things have improved quite a bit since then. The club currently find themselves in the Champions League places, with the prospect of a first top four finish since 2016 now a genuine one.

If they are to achieve that, one or two reinforcements in January would be helpful. The midfield is certainly an area where an extra body is needed, with Ian Wright having one potential solution in mind.

Speaking on The Kelly and Wrighty Show, the former Arsenal striker said his old team should move for PSG midfielder Gini Wijnaldum this month.

I saw Wijnaldum's name [linked with Arsenal]. That would be amazing. A loan signing from PSG.

Someone like that in the midfield. Of that experience. He is a Premier League winner. Just to help with the youngsters and a Sambi Lokonga just to keep it going.

Then, they can add to the squad and, all of a sudden, Arsenal can start challenging and challenging seriously.


Wijnaldum only joined PSG on a free transfer last summer, although things have not exactly worked out for him in the French capital thus far. While he has featured regularly, he has also been in and out of the starting XI at times and has not hit the same heights that saw him become an integral part of Jurgen Klopp's title winning side at Liverpool.

It has been suggested that Mauricio Pochettino would be open to allowing the Dutchman to leave on loan this month, with a number of Premier League clubs linked.

This would certainly be an excellent addition for Arsenal, with Mikel Arteta admitting that they will be looking to make some additions in the weeks ahead.


As Wright pointed out, a signing of Wijnaldum's calibre would certainly be a big boost to their top four ambitions.
