Mikel Arteta is eyeing up a move for Sevilla’s Juan Jordan to bolster his midfield options.

 

The beat London rivals on Boxing Day 3-1 to provide Arteta and the a huge boost after a seven-game winless streak in the Premier League.

 

Arteta will be hooping to build on their latest win with a string of victories in the upcoming weeks and inject new life into the team when the January opens this weekend.

 

The Sun claims Arteta has targeted Jordan, who is valued at around £32million by Sevilla.

 

Jordan has been in impressive form for Sevilla this season and despite having a £55million release clause in his existing contract, the club are interested in offers below that valuation.

 

Jordan was a key figure in the Sevilla side who won last season’s Europa League and claimed fourth spot in La Liga.

 

Jordan would provide Arsenal the creativity they have been starved off this season, with the only netting 15 goals this season.

 

Despite signing over the summer, the former man has struggled with injuries and Arteta will be hoping to bolster his midfield options this January as the likes of Granit Xhaka and have also been below-par thus far this season.
