Arsenal will take part in the next transfer window in order to bring much-needed reinforcement to the squad. A loan move for Vinicius Jr of Real Madrid is weighing up by Arsenal as per Daily Star. After the 20-year-old has fallen out of favor under the current manager Zinedine Zidane.
After a woeful start to the season in decades and never-ending poor performance by the Gunners. Mikel Arteta is under severe pressure of facing a sack especially after his side’s 4-1 Carabao Cup thrashing by Manchester City. The Spanish boss is the odds-on-favorite and might be the next boss on the books of Premier League manager sacking.
In order to help the under-fire Arteta, Arsenal is ready to give him all the support and complete backing. Moreover, Arsenal officials are confident about Arteta being the right man to do man-management at the Emirates stadium. The technical director Edu being the recent one to praise Arteta and openly backing the Spaniard claiming to be patient with him.
Arteta was once a ray of hope
Back in November 2019 when Arteta joined the Arsenal he was keen to bring the reinforcement to his side defensive field. Not only he decided to improve the conceding of goals but also made it his number one priority. And the results were better and Arsenal did show improvements under the new manager.
However, keeping in mind the defensive crisis and ignoring the midfield creativity is where Arteta lost the magic. Since the omission of Mesut Ozil from the main squad. Arsenal has lost the creativity in the middle of the park and failed to bring a new midfielder in the summer other than Thomas Partey.
Arsenal was linked with a move for Isco, Real Madrid playmaker who for a few months has been frozen out of the squad by the Real boss. He could only appeared in the three matches in all the competitions. However, it seems that Arsenal would rather fix other great issues at Emirates at the moment. While the 28-year-old is set for a loan move to Juventus.
For now, it is not just midfield but the attacking area also needs significant repairing. Arsenal has played 14 Premier League matches and could only score 14 goals. The lack of goal is one of the biggest problems and needs all the focus. In that case, Arsenal is looking for possible help that few players can provide.
A loan deal for Vinicius Jr
Arsenal is ready to revisit their interest in the Brazilian forward who is able to play anywhere in the front line. This wouldn’t be the first time that Arsenal is proposing a move for the Vinicius Jr. Earlier during the reign of Unai Emery, Arsenal wanted to sign the forward. Emery used to have a good relationship with his agent but the move never really became official.
Vinicius has one cap for Brazil and has three goals and three assists under his name for Real Madrid. In 2018 he was signed for £38.7m by the Spanish giants but his development isn’t in a direction where the amount could get any high.
After struggling at Santiago Bernabeu Vinicius would be looking for regular playtime. Being so versatile at the age of 20 and he has so much to offer and so much to take in. Looking towards the inconsistency in his game time. Real Madrid might be making him available to send out on loan in January.
