The gunners will be going into the January transfer window hoping to get new faces because they haven't been that impressive since the season begun in August. The has been many transfer speculations on who Arsenal will be trying to sign in the winter transfer window because all the supporters have been urging the manager to try and sign some players in order to strengthen their squad for the up coming tough matches. There has been a report by MIRROR SPORT which says that the gunners are monitoring Abdou Diallo who plays for German club Mainz but it is said that the gunners have made him their number one priority for this January transfer window which is just a few days from opening with a number of clubs getting ready to spend and also selling most of it's players. The Arsenal transfer target is a highly rated defender who is just 21 years old and has a great future, and Arsene Wenger has always been a manager that usually signs young players because they are cheap so he then also wants to sign Abdou Diallo to develop him into a great player, the same as he is doing with Rob Holding. ( PICTURE: GETTY) Some of the Arsenal supporters who will not be pleased with these rumours because they were hoping to see that the manager tries to sign top world class players and not the players with names they have never heard of because most of them do not know about Abdou Diallo. The gunners have had a poor first half of the season as they have been continuously conceding many goals this season due to poor defense so the capture of Abdou Diallo would be very good signing for the squad.
