Mikel Arteta on Arsenal’s January transfer plans

Though Arsenal are in the title race right now, Mikel Arteta has expressed concerns about his squad being short on options due to injuries and he has hinted it will make departures in January unlikely.

Arsenal spent over £200m on new signings in the summer, but Arteta has said they could add to the squad in January.

The Gunners are short on options in defence due to injuries, while they have also been scouting midfielders and forwards:

“If there is something that we can [do to] improve the squad and that needs appear, and we cannot fulfil it with players here, we are always going to be open to do that because we want to be stronger,” said Arteta.

“We have certain targets, ideas if things happen. As well, we don’t know how the squad is going to look in two weeks’ time and you have to be always prepared for that.

“But it is a very, very tricky market that shifts very quickly and it is quite unpredictable as well - and you have to be prepared. We will be prepared and we will try to make the right calls.”
