Mikel Arteta drops hint about Arsenal plans for January transfer window

By | December 4, 2020

Arsenal head-coach Mikel Arteta has affirmed that he is working closely with technical director Edu as the pair planning to make changes in the January transfer window.

The North London club are currently in their worst-ever position in the English top-tier after 10 games, and the Gunners have been linked with a number of players in order to solve their issues.

Lyon’s playmaker Houssem Aouar and Red Bull Salzburg’s star Dominik Szoboszlai have been heavily linked with moves to North London, while Serie A giants, Inter Milan’s midfielder Christian Eriksen and Norwich City’s Emiliano Buendia have also been mentioned as potential signing in January.

When asked about possible comings and goings next month during a press conference, Arteta said: “We are planning, talking with Edu and with the club about the things we can do in January.

“But at the moment it’s pretty difficult, unpredictable as well in terms of places we are very restricted in the moment.

“We’ll see what happens, I think things will move in the market, we will be prepared, we will need to do something knowing the limitations of that market in January and the limitations we have as well to sign players.”

The Gunners have maintained their 100% record in the Europa League after a win against Rapid Vienna on Thursday evening.
