The January transfer window is well and truly open now, with Arsene Wenger busy contemplating whether to make a move to bolster his Arsenal options.

Wenger is usually reluctant to do business in mid-season, but a spate of midfield injuries could force the French coach into the market in order to keep Arsenal's hopes of silverware on track.

The Gunners are in action at Deepdale later on Saturday as they look beat Preston North End to ensure safe passage into the fourth round of the FA Cup, but matchdays don't stop the transfer rumours flying.
The chances of Alexis Sanchez leaving the Emirates this month are slim to none, but the Chile star's contract stand-off with Arsenal is sure to interest plenty of elite clubs if it continues into the summer months.
Sanchez's current deal runs out in summer 2018, and the Mirror reports that Paris Saint-Germain are urging the "60million" forward to delay his talks with the Gunners in order to launch a "cut-price" bid at the end of the season.

According to the paper, Sanchez would be able to command higher wages at PSG, with the French giants' director of fotball, Patrick Kluivert, a "huge fan" of Wenger's No.1 striker - who could be tempted given his recent frustrations against Bournemouth.
