Mikel Arteta has plans to complete at least three transfers next month

The next transfer window would be Mikel Arteta’s first as an Arsenal manager and it seems the Spaniard can’t wait to take advantage of it.

Arteta is set to take on his first opponents since he was made manager when the Gunners face Bournemouth this week, but he may have seen enough of his team in training to know which area he needs to strengthen.

Reports from Metro Sports claims that Arteta has told Arsenal he wants three new signings next month.

The former midfielder is looking to sign two new defenders and a defensive midfielder when the window opens.

Arsenal’s biggest struggle this season has been at the back with David Luiz failing to inspire any form of confidence despite only signing from Chelsea over the summer.

The Gunners enter their game against the Cherries 11th on the league table and Arteta knows that he will have to fix that leaky defence before he can achieve any sort of success.

The Gunners are also looking to sign a new midfielder as the futures of Granit Xhaka and Lucas Torreira remains uncertain.

Since falling out with the fans, Xhaka has remained an unwanted figure at the Emirates, but Arteta has promised to support him.

Torreira hasn’t been happy with the roles he has played under Unai Emery and Freddie Ljungberg this season and he may ask for a move away if Arteta also fails to integrate him more.

    ÓT: who thinks Freddie is going to cause troubles i doubt that it was Arteta choice to have him in his coaching staff,he is a kronk tasked to reporto the boys,also he wanted the post playing young players he coached to get credit, which is the opposite philosophy bof arteta,but i could be wrong slso the comments he made about the seniors players were out of order,ozil even fut wouldn’t have been in the squad,lacazette even Pèpè,the inky reason we drew against everton was because of Arteta speeches, tactics before the game and half time even Martin keown said few days ago that Freddie as a player/person was very selfish!

    Who destroyed arsenal?
    No real wingers
    No real wing back
    No real DM. If u are white u have to be 6 feet 2 or u have to be black to be DM.
    No real gameplay.
    Passing from back.
    No real CB. Luiz is a loser who destroyed Brazil.
    This team cant be fixed.

    Finally a manager who finally knows what the team knows,2DM to protect the defence,a defender,l just hope it is true; because ut would resolve a lot if our problems,things that fabs have been asking for months, sell torreira to Italy, xhaka to Germany,no excuses about no money and we can afford a decent defender, plus our players coming back and selling few players! Arteta has a plan i am sure of that!;

    Thomas Partey kind is midfielder asap! A strong blocker, enforcer, passer and creator.

    I believed that Arteta will change Arsenal but he needs to buy players and sell some players.
    Arsenal cannot win with those lazy frats.

  10. Wale says:

    Pepe needs playing times. Winlock needs to learn. Chambers and Bellerin needs more playing times.
