A slew of updates have surfaced around Premier League giants Arsenal’s plans for the January transfer window on Friday night.
“Know what we need to do”
The first revolves around the potential Gunners’ swooping Fiorentina sensation Dusan Vlahovic.
Serbian hitman Vlahovic has of course been on fire so far in a fine battle in Florence tip Moved to UAE this month.
That’s because current ex-Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been banished to the stands, while Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are both set to watch at the end of the season until their contract expires.
In turn, at a press conference on Friday, Mikel Arteta was asked if it was possible to raid a player like Vlahovic in north London in the coming weeks.
In response, the Spaniard went on to explain:
“I think with the volume of things and the way we want to develop the team, we have to maximize each window in a number of different ways, and we’re vigilant.”
“Edu and his team are working really hard because we know exactly what we need to do.”
“Whether we can get there in January or summer is a different question because it’s related to other things.”
“Again, if it’s the right player, we can afford it, we can do what we want and we’ll discuss it and make the best decision.”
“We are open.”
“We have to maximize every window. Edu and his team are working hard.”
Mikel Arteta says Arsenal will make big moves in the transfer market this month if the opportunity arises.

Elsewhere in the same media, Arteta has also been questioned about the possibility of Jack Wilshere signing a short-term deal with the club.
Former Gunners standout Wilshere has spent the past few months training at London Colney in an effort to get his coaching badge.
In turn, with a midfield crisis due to both Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny leaving for the Africa Cup of Nations, it has been suggested that Wilshere could be in for the second game A new opportunity to make Arsenal red for half a term.
However, the club’s boss was eager to put an end to that speculation on Friday, reiterating his stance that his one-time team-mate was simply not an option to strengthen the capital’s squad in the middle of the park:
“I think I’m pretty clear about Jack’s situation and the role he’s going to play here, and we’re going to continue in the same way.”
Arteta has asked about the prospect of signing Jack Wilshere to ease his midfield problems. Doesn’t sound like a passerby.
