Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is looking to strengthen his squad in the winter transfer window and push for the Premier League title.
The Gunners remains fifth in the Premier League ranking with 41 points, 8 points behind league leader Chelsea. Last summer, the North London club strengthened their striker-force, midfielder and the back line.
However, they did not sign anyone to reinforce their attacking midfield. If the latest reports are anything to go by then Arsenal are linked with a versatile attacker.
According to The Times, Wenger has made West Ham United star Michail Antonio his top transfer priority this month.
The 26-year-old attacker signed a new deal with the Hammers last summer after a brilliant last campaign and he has been even better this season. In 19 league appearances, the former Southampton attacker has directly contributed in 9 goals (8 goals and 1 assist).
Antonio is a versatile star who can play anywhere in the attacking third but as per the provided Times link, the French manager is planning to utilize him in the wing-back position in the usual 4-2-3-1 formation. The Hammers are believed to value their star man at £35m which remains to be seen if Wenger would be willing to submit such mammoth fee for the attacking midfielder.
