Midfielder Arrives At London Colney For Medical Ahead Of Shock Arsenal Move
Arsenal are on the verge of making their first signing on the transfer window with a veteran midfielder at the clubs training ground to complete a loan move.
With the January transfer window entering it’s final stages clubs are working hard to try and strengthen their squad for the second half of the season, so we’ll keep you up-to-date with all the latest news, gossip and rumours. Today, Gooner Mac brings us news on Arsenal’s pursuit of Kim Kallstrom.
Arsenal are on the verge of making their first signing on the January transfer window with widespread reports suggesting that Kim Kallstrom is joining the club.
News broke earlier this morning that Arsenal were in talks with Spartak Moscow to try and loan the 31-year-old Swedish international until the end of the season.
This news came after Arsene Wenger had confirmed at his press conference this morning he was in the market for another midfield following the news that Aaron Ramsey will miss up to six weeks with a thigh injury.
John Cross at the Mirror newspaper has now revealed that Kallstrom has arrived at Arsenal’s training ground to hold talks over personal terms and undergo a medical. If completed in time, the veteran could be in the squad to face Crystal Palace on Sunday.

The Kallstrom is certainly a shock as he’s NOT the name Arsenal fans had hoped would be arriving today and it’s going to be a huge anti-climax if he’s the only one brought through the door this month.
However, he’s a vastly experienced midfielder and with Ramsey out, Flamini suspended for three matches and Jack Wilshere struggling with his ankle injuries, we could do with another body in the middle of the park. We’ll just have to hope he adapts to life in England quickly and can make a positive contribution.
