Huntelaar, Reina and Zaha among January targets for Arsenal boss Wenger

Arsene Wenger will attempt to turn around the fortunes of Arsenal by dipping into the winter transfer market and signing up to four players – Klaas Jan Huntelaar, Pepe Reina, Wilfried Zaha and, on loan, Thierry Henry, the Daily Mail has reported.

After defeat by Swansea City on Saturday, the Gunners are languishing in 10th in the Premier League, 15 points off top-of-the-table Manchester United and only nine points off the bottom three. It is the worst start to a season Wenger has endured as Arsenal manager, and Arsenal’s worst start to a season since 1994.

Wenger has tried without success to sign Huntelaar in the past but the Schalke striker is said to be available for the low sum of £6m, as his contract with the Bundesliga club winds down. Arsenal however face competition for the Netherlands international from Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool.

A second successive return on loan for New York Red Bulls striker and former Arsenal captain on Henry is also on the agenda, while Wenger will commit to spending £9m on Crystal Palace’s young winger Zaha. And with a new goalkeeper also desired by the manager, Liverpool’s Reina is expected to be the object of his attention.
