Arsenal are top of the Premier League after 14 games with 37 points. The Gunners are five points ahead of defending Champions Manchester City heading to the World Cup break.
The Gunners are also in the transfer market hoping to strengthen their squad in their quest to win the Premier League for the first since 2004.
Arsenal are closing in on £20 million Brazilian midfielder Danilo from Palmeiras. Arsenal are also interested in Shakhtar Donetsk winger Mykhaylo Mudryk.
However, Gary Neville believes the signing of a new first-team player in January could upset some of the players in the team and affect their Premier League title Challenge.
What did Gary Neville say?
Gary Neville said on The Gary Neville Podcast: “You ask the question now: would Arsenal strengthen in January? What risk does that bring? Do you strengthen to boost the squad or do you strengthen to actually boost the first XI?
“If you strengthen to boost the first XI do you upset one of the players or two of the players that are in there?
“And that’s the sort of conundrum that will be going through the Arsenal board’s mind at this moment in time.
“Because I’m not quite sure any of the other clubs will do that. I’m not sure City will do business, to be honest with you, I’m not sure any of the other clubs at the top will do business. There is a sense that Arsenal may do in midfield.”
Despite Arsenal’s impressive performance in the season, Gary Neville believes Manchester City will still win the Premier League.
Neville added: “I don’t think they’ll win the title, I think City will. I do think they will get into the top four. But I do think it will be interesting, some sort of February and March, where they end up.
“Because I still think there will be an element of them still having to prove themselves. I’ll say it time and time again until they show me differently.
“But what they’re demonstrating to me at this moment in time is that they’re the best team in the league, the most consistent team in the league.
“And from where they were at the end of last season, well done to Mikel Arteta. It’s a brilliant job that they’ve done. The recruitment has been fantastic.
“Well done to the club for holding their nerve through a difficult moment where they could have easily put more pressure on Mikel, other managers may have lost their job, he’s been there for three years.
“They held their nerve on recruitment, held their nerve with the manager, they’ve got the right players in, and all of a sudden it just looks like it’s knitted together.”
