The brief crisis at Arsenal is over. The first two weeks of the new year had seen the Gunners dragged from pillar to post, but it’s amazing what a little sunlight in Dubai can do for one.

Before taking on a struggling Crystal Palace team, Mikel Arteta’s team had only managed one goal in their previous three games and had lost all of them.

Is a striker still needed by Arsenal on the market? Arguably, though, a 5-0 thumping of Roy Hodgson’s team has eased tensions at the Emirates Stadium and given their championship challenge fresh life.

It was exactly what the doctor ordered; let’s get serious about attacking the window now.

The latest transfer plans of Arsenal

This month, Arsenal will have trouble adding players. During the first few weeks of the window, there hasn’t been much activity on that front, and funds are scarce, primarily because of financial fair play regulations.

Ivan Toney, who scored on Saturday against Nottingham Forest after missing the entire season because of a betting ban, is supposedly their main goal.

The latest sources state that Brentford will not settle for a price for him lower than their £80 million estimation. Any intended relocation will therefore need to wait until the summer.

It’s possible to move a midfield player, but the deal will depend on the cost. Arsenal has been pursuing £60 million Belgium star Amadou Onana, but Everton, which is having financial difficulties, would have to pay a heavy price if transactions do not happen this month. That could account for the far less expensive connections to Martin Zubimendi of Real Sociedad.

Owing to a release clause, the move, valued at £51 million, might have to wait until the summer. Still, it would be worthwhile to wait for him. Imagine working with someone named Declan Rice.
