The North Londoners urgently need to reinforce up front this January transfer window as BBC Sport claimed today that forward Alexis Sanchez seems ready for a transfer to Manchester United.

Most rumour points towards the Gunners trying to replace the contract rebel with two players, with Sky Sports claiming a £53million transfer deal for Dortmund striker Aubameyang looks possible.
