Arsenal journalist Charles Watts has made a claim concerning the north London club and what potential transfer business they could do during the remainder of the current January window. 

This comes after Watts recently uploaded a video onto his YouTube channel where he discussed a variety of topics concerning the Gunners.

In what month did Mikel Arteta take over as the Arsenal boss?

On the subject of the January window and what could happen at the club before the transfer deadline, Watts had this to say on the matter.

He said: “I think at Arsenal, the key right now is potentially more outgoings. Mikel [Arteta] didn’t totally rule out the possibility of people coming in, but I’d be very surprised.

“I think the left-back is one position where maybe there’s something that could be done, but as I’ve mentioned in previous videos, I still kind of think that they probably will just about see it through to the end of the season and then look to bring someone in.”

In terms of incoming transfers this month, Arsenal have signed Martin Odegaard and Mat Ryan on loan deals until the end of the season.

In terms of outgoings, the Gunners have let go of Sead Kolasinac and William Saliba on temporary deals until the end of the season but have said goodbye to Mesut Ozil, Sokratis and Matt Macey with the trio leaving on free transfers (per Transfermarkt).

TIF Thoughts on Charles Watts’ comments on the remainder of the January transfer window…

With Arteta recently saying in his latest press conference that the club are “in close contact with all the things that can happen” throughout the remainder of the winter window, this says to us that there is every possibility that there could still be some business taking place, whether that be new players coming in or current players leaving.

In our view, Arsenal should focus on trying to pick up as many positive results as possible from now until the end of the season and then use the summer transfer window to assess what business they need to do.
