However, Arsenal head coach Unai Emery has ruled out the club making any permanent signing in January, with only loan deals possible.

"We are looking at two different players and the possibility they can come", he said. "But the club say to me in the summer it is going to be different and we are going to have chances to spend money".

"We have enough players, centre-backs, in the squad", Emery added. While the North Londoners want to include an option to buy Perisic for around £35 million, the Nerazzurri want to tweak the terms slightly and leave the Premier League heavyweights with an obligation to sign him permanently, although they would still prefer to sell this month. And we are also in the same situation in that it is hard to find one different and better player in this transfer window. "I know the club are doing all they can to achieve one player to help us". "My challenge is to improve the players".

Arsenal manager Unai Emery also feared that French central defender Laurent Koscielny might have suffered a broken jaw in the United game at The Emirates but it was only bruising.

Sokratis and Koscielny were injured in Friday's FA Cup loss to Manchester United.

Both names were put to Emery on Monday ahead of Tuesday's home Premier League clash with Cardiff City and, although the Arsenal boss could not identify a specific player, he is keen to see an arrival this week. There are three points between Chelsea and us and my idea is to take opportunities to close the gap with the possibility of being in the top four'.

"Only we're having a lot of injuries and a lot in this position".

"Tomorrow we need to impose and to adapt".
