Mikel Arteta is looking to significantly boost his Arsenal team when the transfer window reopens and he has identified at least five players who could help his Emirates Stadium revolution.
The Gunners strengthened their squad in the summer with the likes of Thomas Partey and Gabriel Magalhaes.
Martin Odegaard was signed on loan from Real Madrid in the last transfer window to help add more quality and options to the squad.
However, he might return to Spain at the end of this season, alongside Dani Ceballos.
If the two of them return to Madrid, they would leave a huge void at Arsenal, but the midfield isn’t the only position that the Gunners will need to strengthen when the transfer window reopens.
Football London says the Gunners will look to sign a new right-back, a goalkeeper and a centre back.
A new midfield partner for Thomas Partey is an important acquisition with Brighton’s Yves Bissouma and Sheffield United’s Sander Berge linked.
Max Aarons could also be signed as a replacement for Hector Bellerin who looks to be on his way out.
Southampton’s Ryan Bertrand or Hibernian’s Josh Doig could join to support Kieran Tierney.
Brentford stopper David Raya remains a target, while we cannot rule a permanent transfer for Mat Ryan out.
Joachim Andersen is being targeted as a replacement for David Luiz.
