Arsenal will only consider new midfielder next summer

Arsenal will only consider a move for Lazio midfielder Hernanes next summer and will not look to make a move in January have been led to believe.

The 26 year old is rumoured to be a target for the club in the January transfer window but Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will only decide on replenishing his current squad after assessing the season at the beginning of next summer.

It had been reported that Arsenal were to monitor the player with a view to bidding in January however it seems unlikely that a new midfielder would be brought on board so soon and next summer now looks the likelier time for Wenger and the Arsenal board to conduct more business.
