With both Man City and Liverpool looking back to their best, the January transfer window could prove a vital period for Arsenal and their 2023/24 Premier League title hopes.


The Gunners recruited well in the summer, with Declan Rice the pick of their signings, but it looks more competitive than ever at the top of the table.

They couldn't quite maintain their charge last term so January additions might be the difference for Mikel Arteta and co. as they continue their pursuit of a first league triumph in two decades.

RadioTimes.com has rounded up the latest Arsenal transfer news, rumours and confirmed deals below.

Arsenal transfer news and rumours

Updated: November 24th 2023

Brentford loanee David Raya is set to be Arsenal's next permanent addition as the North Londoners are believed to have decided to make his loan deal permanent, which will cost a pre-agreed £27 million.

Once January rolls around, it'll be the other end of the pitch that the Gunners are focussing on, however. A new centre-forward looks to be Arteta's winter window priority with £100m-rated Bees striker Ivan Toney on their radar as well as hot Brighton prospect Evan Ferguson.

The interest in that duo could see Arsenal look elsewhere and Juventus forward Dusan Vlahovic is currently being touted as their top target amid rumours he may be ready to leave the Serie A club.

The Gunners remain keen on long-term target Pedro Neto but now face competition from Man Utd and teams in the Saudi Pro League while his £60 million price-tag could put them off.

Arteta is likely keen to keep the majority of his squad together but that has done little to quieten exit talk.

Jorginho continues to be linked with a January move to Barcelona while Bayern Munich are said to have a keen eye on Takehiro Tomiyasu despite his manager's insistence that he really wants to keep hold of the defender.
