Arsenal: Potential January transfer targets

Aly Cissokho
A long-term target for Arsene Wenger, Cissokho has once again been linked with a move to Arsenal. Reports suggest Lyon are willing to let the French left-back leave this month. Cissokho recently told L'Equipe of his desire to play in the Premier League: 'This week, I will speak with the Lyon staff. I reckon I prefer England, but for now, there is nothing done.'

Arsenal have already been active this month as club icon Thierry Henry has returned to provide cover for Africa Cup of Nations bound duo Gervinho and Marouane Chamakh in a loan move from New York Red Bulls.

Henry provides a short-term solution to the ever increasing reliance on prolific captain Robin van Persie but Arsenal may look to secure another striker permanently this month.

Another key position the Gunners will look to provide cover for is at left-back after injuries have decimated almost all options at the club.

Here, we round-up the players linked with a possible move to Arsenal.
