Arsenal head coach Unai Emery will be looking to use every opportunity he gets in this transfer window to get players that can join them on loan since the club has told him that it doesn’t have funds to spend on his transfer targets.

The Arsenal fans expect their club to be working hard to bring in new defenders but it has rather been linked with midfielders because Unai Emery wants to strengthen his midfield because he has enough defenders to use in the coming four months. Top UK publication, the Daily Mirror claims that the gunners want to sign FC Porto attacking midfielder Yacine Brahimi on loan.

Yacine Brahimi is an attacking midfielder who can also play on both flanks and Arsenal’s coach Unai Emery has already claimed that he believes that he needs some wingers in his squad because they have at times been using full backs in the wide positions hence leaving them exposed at the back.

The report claims that Unai Emery wants Yacine Brahimi at the Emirates Stadium for the rest of the season with the hope of signing him for free in the summer because his current contract at FC Porto will expire at the end of this season. Unai Emery said that the club is looking at possibilities of bringing in new players that would help them but they are however limited to bringing only those that can come on loan moves.

Arsenal is still interested in Denis Suarez and the negotiations are on going but Yacine Brahimi would however be a great signing for the gunners because he is now 28 years old and can help the gunners for about four seasons.
