Arsenal are considering whether to make a loan bid for Real Madrid winger Vinicius Jnr in the January transfer window, according to the Daily Star.
The 20-year-old has been a regular for the La Liga champions this season, starting ten games in all competitions, but his inconsistency has frustrated manager Zinedine Zidane and teammates alike, and it is believed they could look to offload him on a temporary basis next month.
Considering the Gunners already have the likes of Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli who can play on the left-wing, supporters on Twitter would be very surprised if the club made a move for Vinicius:
Like he’d want to join 😂😂

Isn’t he another winger? Can we give them Willian ?

Martinelli, Saka at LW, and we decide to go for Vinicius

One of the only positions we don’t need now that Martinelli is back 🤦♂️

You can’t completely rule out Arsenal’s interest with technical director Edu having followed his fellow Brazilian’s career closely. However, the Gunners are likely to be more focused on signing an attacking midfielder in January.
The Daily Star also say Vinicius’s teammate Isco, another target for the London club, is expected to join Juventus so Arsenal will have to look further afield in order to find a playmaker.
