Arsene Wenger had a knack for leaving business late in the transfer market – it appears that Unai Emery is bent on maintaining that status quo.
Despite the obvious need to strengthen, Arsenal are yet to sign any player in this window that closes in four days. However, the Gunners are desperate to reinforce their backline and reports have indicated that they will attempt to sign Gary Cahill before the close of the window.
Arsenal were thrashed by Manchester United in the fourth round of the FA Cup, that game left the North London club decimated with injuries.
Sokratis Papastathopoulos picked up an ankle injury while Laurent Koscielny broke his jaw, leaving them with only one fit centre-back.
Meanwhile, Sarri does not rate Cahill and he has asked the England legend, who is out of contract at the end of the season to leave.
Emery admitted that he can only sign players on loan this month but the club’s budget may just be enough to sign Cahill permanently.
Arsenal are not the only club hunting for Cahill’s signature, Fulham are also heavily interested in signing him.
