Arsenal are chasing Emi Buendia this month and The Independent claims Reiss Nelson and Joe Willock might be offered as bait – much to the intrigue of supporters.
The Gunners are keen to strengthen their creative options during January and hope to land the Norwich City playmaker.
Arsenal have picked up a bit of late, winning their last three Premier League matches and moving up to eleventh in the division.
Despite that, Mikel Arteta is still keen to strengthen and he will now have his sights set on a European place.
There is still work to do for the Gunners but there is seemingly some light at the end of the tunnel.
Buendia is valued at £40 million by Norwich and that is likely to become problematic for Arsenal.
With that in mind, they are keen to strike a compromise and are considering offering a player.
Both Willock and Nelson have struggled for game time during the current campaign, with both featuring more in the Europa League.
It wouldn’t really come as a surprise to see either of the talents leave this month.
Arsenal fans have been intrigued by the news that they could be used to land Bunedia, with plenty taking to social media.
Here is what they are saying about a potential swap deal.
Great new!! Dear lord please let it be joe willock!! 🙏🙏🙏

Willock doesn't posses the quality Arsenal needs.. He is a championship player.. Nelson is a good player.. Willock should be allowed to leave..

Phenomenal piece of business, I’d lose willock, guy has had numerous chances to stake his claim in the starting 11 and he’s been underwhelming. You’ve got ESR, taken his chance and delivered. Him + Buendia 💪🏽
