An unbeaten streak of 20 matches has given Arsenal fans reasons to be optimistic as the 2016/17 campaign nears its halfway-point.

Arsene Wenger’s side have not lost in any competition since their thrilling 4-3 defeat at home to Liverpool on the opening weekend, and have since shown signs that they are ready to end a 12-year wait for the Premier League title.

The Gunners have won eight of their opening 13 league games, and also qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League with two games to spare thanks to three wins and a draw from their first four group games.

However, they turn their attentions to the League Cup this week and a quarter-final clash with Claude Puel’s Southampton this evening, in a competition that Wenger has yet to win in his 20 years in charge in North London.

With the Gunners sitting fourth with 28 points from 13 games, and just three adrift of league leaders Chelsea, many are talking about a potential title challenge from Wenger’s men, but there are some that still feel that Arsenal will come up short as the season wears on.

Thus, reinforcements may be needed in January, so here are the THREE star signings on the top of Arsenal’s Christmas list…
