So, there is just a few hours to go before paper talk can become reality and the winter transfer window opens. This winter expect some serious cash to be flying with Arsenal, Spurs and Liverpool desperate to strengthen their squads to keep them in the frame for Champions League qualification, and Man City and Chelsea mulling over big money strikers.
Apparently ‘Arrry has £20 million to spend too.
So here then are the ten most coveted players in the window. I’d be very surprised if at least half of them weren’t wearing new colours come February.
2 Theo Walcott
At the end of the Newcastle game Walcott's lap of honour probably brought back some bad memories for Gunners fans of other players whose applauding the supporters preceded a goodbye. The distance between the player's demands and what Arsenal are offering is reported by a number of papers to be shortening, but if he does decide to move on Wenger may choose to cash in on him in the window.
