Arteta to receive huge financial backing in January

Arsenal has been impressed by the job Mikel Arteta is doing at the Emirates and now they will back him with a new transfer war chest in the January transfer window.

The former midfielder has transformed Arsenal from perennial top-four failures to the top side in the league this season.

The Gunners remain above Manchester City despite dropping points against Southampton the last time.

They are in an unexpected title race and Arsenal wants to support their manager to sustain it.

A report on The Sun reveals the Gunners will back their gaffer with £50 million to spend in the January transfer window.

The Spaniard wants to sign a new midfielder and a winger to ease the workload on Bukayo Saka and Granit Xhaka and Arsenal will hand him cash to do that.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Arsenal is overachieving now, but they are in a position that can be sustained easily.

We did not expect to win the title at the beginning of the season, but now that we find ourselves in a good position, the smart thing to do is try to make the most of it.

January is not the best month to sign players, but bolstering our squad mid-season could be a game-changing decision in the second half of the term.

  1. “Arsenal is overachieving now, but we are in a position, that can be sustained easily”???
    Difficult to see any of it is correct.

    1. Anders, Neither “overachieving now” , nor “can be EASILY sustained” make any sense at all. So you make a pertinent point

  2. “Perennial top four failures” – isn’t that something that MA has failed to achieve to date, despite over three years and being backed with over £300,000,000 in the transfer market?
    According to the article and how the author rates a “failure” anything less than being PL champions will automatically class MA as another “perrenial top four failure” – actually, he might even be a “perrenial top FIVE failure” who will have spent more money than all our previous managers put together!!

  3. This reported £50 mil war chest story got legs.
    Yes the gaffer need that war chest to continue the rebuilding process.

    Can’t understand why Dan keep insisting no money will be spent in January.

    The priorities are clear Winger/Striker and Midfielder should be the area of main focus to keep the team competitive.

  4. DM + Winger and a striker bcz EPL is advancing in a bit funny way which needs a team to have a very strong substitute in bench and when you add 5subs per game that makes it difficult to be consistent through out the season if you don’t have a strong substitute on bench. This must consist players who are game changer

  5. With ESR and Elneny back by January, I don’t see the need for a winger or midfield player. We should keep the money for summer when more value is around.

    1. We must buy in January, Infact early enough to sustain the tempo. We should know that injury may happen. We need 2 player by January

  6. I would not call £50M ‘huge financial backing’ more like a little top up from last summer’s expenditure.

    Imho to sustain a title challenge we would need 4 signings (MF, WF, ST,LCB) Neves, Trossard, Toney and N’dicka would be great options but that would mean forking out around another £120M or so WHICH WILL NOT HAPPEN. So being realistic I would be happy with 3 cheaper additions like Danilo, maybe Muydrik or Pino and N’dicka(though we might saved this one for the summer on a free transfer) and when Zinny, ESR and Elneny return maybe we can be hopeful with a bit of luck here and there to compete 🤞🏽

  7. Yes we need to strengthen in those areas. I have just been wondering what would happen if we lost Xhaka for a while. There’s no obvious replacement for him. I guess that’s why he virtually plays every game. Even Elneny coming back doesn’t change the situation because he is more an option for Partey than Xhaka
    Ditto for Saka. Not sure if Marquinhos or Nelson would be able to step in for him in the big games. Even ESR is more of a Martinelli option
    Only worry is the amount being bandied .£50m can buy only one, not two, of the kind of quality players we need. The likes Mikyalo of Shakhtar alone would take all of that money

  8. Perceptive Gooners may notice the word”huge ” appears ONLY in the actual headline and NOT in the actual article.

    As is so depressingly common in JA headlines, yet another article is traduced by a wrong headline.
