Arsenal have been linked with a shock move to sign Eduardo Camavinga on loan from Real Madrid in the January transfer window.
The Evening Standard claim that the Arsenal board are backing Mikel Arteta to the hilt this month, with a first Premier League title in 19 years firmly in their grasp.

Having Camavinga as a backup for the Ghanaian would be be the perfect antidote to that though. This could end up being a seriously impressive January transfer window for Arsenal.
