If Edu sticks to his January plan, Man City could swoop in on two Arsenal transfer targets.

Manchester City could derail Arsenal’s transfer plans.

If transfer chief Edu sticks to his January plan, Manchester City could swoop in on two of Arsenal’s top targets.

Due to their recent struggles, the Gunners have been heavily linked with strikers in recent weeks, despite reports that their initial strategy was to wait until the summer.

The lack of a striker in City’s senior squad this season has sparked widespread concern.

Pep Guardiola’s team, on the other hand, has forged ahead of Chelsea, sitting 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

As a result, the Catalan coach claims that the Sky Blues will not be pursuing any high-profile targets up front in January, with a deal for Erling Haaland reportedly set for the summer.

Arsenal had planned to pursue them after the season, but recent events appear to have prompted a change of heart.

Newcastle is expected to make a £10 million bid for West Ham United in the coming hours as the battle for a centre-back takes a new turn.

Following a disciplinary breach, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was stripped of his captaincy, Folarin Balogun appears to be on his way out on loan, and Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette have both declined new contracts.

As a result, the Gunners have considered bringing in attacking reinforcements this window, but according to The Athletic, Edu’s initial plan was to wait until the summer.

If the Brazilian is unsuccessful in his pursuits this month and opts to wait until the end of the season, he may face stiff competition from City for two targets.

Guardiola’s team is keeping a close eye on Dusan Vlahovic and Alexander Isak, according to the same report.

Both strikers are tall, young, and promising strikers who have previously been on the radar of top clubs such as Arsenal.

Vlahovic, who has 16 Serie A goals to his name and is in the final two years of his Fiorentina contract, is practically the player of the month this January.

Isak, on the other hand, has only scored four goals in La Liga this season with Real Sociedad, compared to his 17 goals last season.
