Gilberto Silva has confirmed Arsenal's intention to sign a new midfielder due to Thomas Partey’s ongoing injury issues.
He told Mirror Football: “I heard that they were maybe looking for some midfielders especially because of Partey being injured at times.
“I’m not sure if it’s 100 percent going to happen but obviously, they have to be aware that this is a very short window and very specific.
"You have to be like a fisherman sometimes, to grab the right player that you really need that’s going to help you to win games and to be useful for the rest of the season. Also to improve the way you play.”
Partey has made just four appearances for Arsenal this season with the last coming against Man City in October.
