Arsenal could sign four midfielders this month to replace Ainsley Maitland-Niles.
Arsenal will be without a midfielder following the departure of AINSLEY MAITLAND-NILES.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles, an Arsenal midfielder, is set to join Roma on loan for the rest of the season.
Arsenal will be short in the middle of the park if he leaves.
Because of their participation in the Africa Cup of Nations, they will be without Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny for up to a month.
Mikel Arteta’s only other senior midfield options are Granit Xhaka and Albert Sambi Lokonga.
Charlie Patino, eighteen, had a taste of first-team football last month when he came off the bench to score a goal in the Carabao Cup quarter-final win over Sunderland.
If either Xhaka or Lokonga are unavailable, Arteta will be hesitant to use him on a regular basis in the Premier League.
Arsenal could sign four midfielders this month, according to Express Sport.
Guimaraes was linked with Arsenal before joining Lyon two Januarys ago.
From his time at Athletico Paranaense in Brazil, the Gunners technical director is familiar with the player.
Arsenal is said to be interested in the 24-year-old, who has started 17 times in Ligue 1 this season.
He has two and a half years left on his contract, so Lyon may be hesitant to release him in the middle of a season.

Rodriguez, like Guimaraes, relocated from South America to Europe in January 2020.
Real Betis snatched the Argentine from Club America in Mexico.
He’s become an important part of a Betis team that finished third in La Liga last season and qualified for the Europa League.
Arsenal were linked with Rodriguez last summer, and the 27-year-old could pique their interest again.
Earlier this season, Sanches was linked with Arsenal.
The Portuguese international’s contract with Lille in France expires in just 18 months.
Sanches remembers a bad loan spell with Swansea City in the Premier League.
However, he has begun to live up to his high promise in France, which has caught the attention of the Gunners.
This is a romantic’s dream come true.
Wilshere is a good example of this.
