Arsenal transfers: Arsene Wenger urged to sign world-class player

Piers Morgan wants Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger to sign a top player in January transfer window

Piers Morgan has urged Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger to sign a world-class player in the January transfer window.

The Gunners moved to the top of the Premier League table on Sunday afternoon after a comfortable 2-0 victory over Remi Garde’s struggling Aston Villa side at Villa Park.

Leicester City will move back into pole position in the top-flight table if Claudio Ranieri’s men can beat defending champions Chelsea at King Power Stadium on Monday night.

Arsenal have been linked with Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema and Spain international Nolito, whilst Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama is a reported target for the Gunners.

And outspoken Arsenal fan Morgan is desperate for Wenger to invest in a world-class signing next month after watching his beloved Gunners move to the top of the Premier League table with 22 games remaining.

Arsenal are two points ahead of second-placed Manchester City after their comfortable win at Villa.
