Arsenal have been linked with a number of players so far during the January transfer window, with Mikel Arteta determined to do business this month despite the lack of funds currently available to him.

Arsenal spent over £200million in the summer on four new signings which means they need to sell before they buy this month in order to stay in line with FFP. The club are in the market for a player who can improve the squad at a relatively cheap price and Fenerbahce midfielder, Sebastian Szymanski could present the Gunners with an opportunity.

Sebastian Szymanski has attracted a lot of interest from many top clubs around Europe this month following his great start to the 2023/24 campaign in Turkey. The attacking midfielder has scored nine goals and recorded nine assists in 23 appearances in the league for Fenerbahce so far this season.

Arsenal’s rivals, Tottenham Hotspur were originally leading the race for the 24-year-old with a £35million offer set to be submitted. However according to reports, the Gunners are now considering a move to snatch him from their arch-rivals’ grasp.

Sebastian Szymanski made the move to Turkey from Dynamo Moscow last summer in a deal worth around £9million. Since then he’s become a key player for the Turkish giants, with his 18 goal contributions helping Fenerbahce to the top of the table after 23 games played.

The two clubs from North London aren’t the only teams interested in the Polish midfielder with Napoli and Real Sociedad are also rumoured to be keen.
