Who YOUR Premier League club should sign in the January transfer window

With the cattle market set to re-open at the end of next week, Kevin Stewart identifies a potential target for each top-flight side

Arsenal – Alex Grimaldo

For years, Arsenal fans have implored Arsene Wenger to sign a top-class striker, but the emergence of Alexis Sanchez as a central frontman has negated that need for now. The Gunners should therefore look to strengthen at full-back – particularly as Kieran Gibbs looks set to depart next summer.

Grimaldo, who's enjoying a brilliant breakthrough campaign at Benfica, would fit the bill perfectly. The ex-Barcelona 21-year-old is wanted by the likes of Chelsea and both Manchester clubs, though, so Wenger shouldn't hang around.

Bournemouth – Jack Wilshere

The midfielder has forced his way back into the England reckoning under Howe and could do a lot worse than signing permanently

After narrowly avoiding relegation in their debut Premier League campaign last time out, Bournemouth are currently flying high in 10th place. Loanee Wilshere has played a big part in their exploits so far this term, fitting in perfectly with Eddie Howe's system at the Vitality Stadium.

If the Cherries want to consolidate their top-flight place, signing a player of Wilshere's standard would be a good start. The midfielder has forced his way back into the England reckoning under Howe and could do a lot worse than signing permanently. Arsenal boss Wenger has suggested they'll offer him a new contract, but would it really be in his best long-term interests? 

Burnley – Danny Williams

They've recently confirmed the signing of former Claret Joey Barton, but Burnley seem resigned to a relegation scrap. With that in mind, then, the club should be looking to increase their quota of battlers to aid their fight for survival.

Reading's USA international Williams certainly falls into that category; the former Hoffenheim man is an all-action midfielder who's full of commitment and, at 27, he'll be keen for a chance in the Premier League.

Chelsea – Michael Keane

Gary Cahill can't go on forever, and the former Manchester United man seems ready to make the next step in his career

Chelsea are enjoying a fantastic season under Antonio Conte and don't need to strengthen much, but some more young, English talent certainly wouldn't go amiss in west London.

Burnley defender Keane would represent an astute addition: John Terry will surely retire at the end of the season, Gary Cahill can't go on forever, and the former Manchester United man seems ready to make the next step in his career.
