Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will have a budget of around £20 Million to spend in the January Transfer Window, to find cover for Arsenal’s unsure defense. Arsene Wenger will get to work as soon as the window opens on Thursday, with Saint Etienne captain Loic Perrin emerging as a possible target for the Gunners, as per Jeremy Wilson from THE TELEGRAPH.

Arsenal have been forced to look for a defensive signing by the number of crucial injuries in that area and due to the sale of Thomas Vermalen. Laurent Koscielny, perhaps is Arsenal’s best defender right now but he has failed to cop up with the pressure and fatigue of playing in three different competition. Thus some like Loic Perrin who is strong central defender and is a leader at the back would be an ideal signing for Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger would be specifically focusing on signing defenders to ease the pressure on Calum Chambers and Hector Beralin who have been asked to play in crucial games and that too, playing out of position. Arsenal have been constantly monitoring Winston Reid (west Ham) and Ron Vlaar (Aston villa), but signing a current Premier League player mid-season is not an easy thing to achieve.

Arsenal failed to sign Celtic’s Virgil van Dijk during the summer transfer window. Arsene Wenger can not afford another window without wrapping up a deal for a new defender or else Arsenal’s hopes of finishing in Top 4 of the Premier League and progressing further in the Champions League can go for a toss.

Arsenal will look to sign St Etienne central Defender Loic Perrin whose estimated worth is £6 Million. That leaves Arsene Wenger a budget of around £15 Million to go out and buy a Central Mid Field Player and William Carvalho’s name from Sporting Lisbon has again come up in last few days.

Lukas Podolski’s rumored move to Inter Milan might fetch Arsenal around £1.8 Million for now, which might aid Wenger’s hopes of landing a defensive mid field player alongside Loic Perrin. If these two signings can be achieved, Arsene Wenger and Arsenal fans will expect a strong second half of the Premier League campaign.
