Arteta admits Arsenal may not sign any player this month

Mikel Arteta has admitted that Arsenal may be forced to make the most of the players they have for the rest of this season, even though they can sign players this month.

The Gunners have been tipped to make some signings in this transfer window to bolster their chances of winning the league.

They are in a tight title race alongside Liverpool, Manchester City, and Aston Villa.

Mikel Arteta’s men are struggling to maintain their challenge, and the signing of a few players could help them achieve this.

However, it will be tricky for them to make additions to their squad because of Financial Fair Play and the lack of availability of suitable players.

Nevertheless, the Gunners are prepared to do their best in the second half of the term, and Arteta seems ready for the challenges ahead.

He said, as quoted by the Daily Mail:

‘We are open for the transfer market but the emphasis is on making the most of what we have.

‘We will work together with the club. to see if we have any options. 

‘(But) it’s a possibility (that we won’t sign anyone).’

Just Arsenal Opinion

We have a good squad, but it will be helpful if we can sign more players this month.

Even if we don’t win the league, we would need a better squad to challenge for the top four.

  1. I don’t expect any either, except opportunities arise to bring in a RW like Olise. we are good on other positions.

    1. The real problem we have is not CF. It’s the left back where Zinchenko is always almost successfully targeted and the midfield.

      In midfield, Havertz hasn’t done the job of Xhaka who made forward line play better and scored goals. We badly need Partey back or a replacement with someone like him.

      Then we can get the right striker in the summer

  2. Left back and CF are real problems with not solution in the horizon due to FFP and money.Maybe selling a valuable player we can solve the left back but to get a good CF is impossible at this window.

  3. If a good price comes for Nketia and probably Smith R, the should run at it to invest in a lb, rw then wait till summer for a proper cf/striker. Bakayoko of PSV will be an option and Kai A can be used as f9 for the main time while Sinchenko can be moved into the middle

  4. yes arteta is a good coach but still can’t make fit enough squad if we don’t sign anyone in January we will enter to summer needy to striker and two midfield and center back and left back right winger and second gk can arsenal afford all this in one summer transfer its impossible even the sales so i very furious with arteta squad building

  5. It’s better not to buy any player than to buy players like the likes of Tavares, Lukonga, Vieira, Kiwior and Jorghino who are just average or even below. Harvertz hasn’t had the impact Arteta thought he would when he released Xhaka

  6. Problem is , he is not giving opportunities to other bench players or youngsters. Saka came through to help left back position. Similar opportunities were given by previous coaches to other players. There not single player Arteta has developed in the last 3 years.
