Three January signings that would ensure Arsenal finish above Spurs this season

Unai Emery has breathed new life into an Arsenal side who were starting to suffocate under Arsene Wenger and, for the first time in years, there is genuine buzz around the Emirates as fans feel that there is real potential for success this season and beyond.

The Gunners have a solid spine of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mesut Ozil and Lucas Torreira, but one feels that there are still areas that are in desperate need of reinforcement – should these weak points be addressed appropriately in the January transfer window, the north London club have every chance of finishing in the top four and, more importantly, above rivals Spurs.

Unfortunately, success doesn’t tend to come cheap in the modern game – an anomalous 2016/17 season aside – as the Pep Guardiolas and the Jose Mourinhos of the Premier League spend stupid amounts on their respective squads, so for Emery and his team to really push for Champions League spots cash must be splashed.
