Arsenal to drop three players for Ighalo, Aubameyang, Wanyama

15 January 2016, 15:02Israel Ojoko

London - English Premier League club Arsenal is set to drop three players at the end of the season, and hope to bring in African trio of Odion Ighalo, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Victor Wanyama.

Watford and Nigeria striker Ighalo has been in superlative form since the start of the season, and as at December 31, 2015, has scored 13 Premier League goals for Watford in the current season, and ended 2015 as the top scorer in England with 30 goals. He has insisted he wants to remain at Vicarage Road, but could accept an offer from Manchester United.

Though he has ruled out a move to the London club, Borussia Dortmund striker Aubameyang is also a target for Arsene Wenger and his coaching crew. The Gabonese was named the African Footballer of the Year, unseating Yaya Toure.

Kenyan and Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama is a top target for Arsenal going by his Premier League experience. Though he is yet to score in as many appearance for his English club this season, his presence in the center is always noticeable.

The possible move of the trio to Arsenal is set to spell bad news for veteran midfield trio Mikel Arteta, Mathieu Flamini and Tomas Rosicky, who are all likely to leave the club when their respective deals expire at the end of the season.

Wenger will look to cut Flamini’s £80,000-per-week wages, while Rosicky’s injury problems will see him seek more regular game time, and Arteta is set to be offered a coaching role at the club, so it seems probable that he will hang up his boots.
