Arsenal transfer news: Arteta eyes four signings, Edu decides on two players, Toney stance

Express Sport provides the latest Arsenal transfer news and gossip ahead of the January window.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has always promised to use each transfer window to its maximum. Sporting director Edu will be on hand to ensure January goes as smoothly as possible for the title-chasing Gunners. Express Sport provides a round-up of the latest gossip and rumours coming out of the Emirates.
Arteta wants four signings

Arteta reportedly wants to make four signings in order to ‘complete’ his squad. The Independent says a striker, midfielder and two full-backs are on his radar.
Thomas Partey’s poor injury record has seen Arsenal scour the market for potential replacements. The absences of Jurrien Timber and Takehiro Tomiyasu have also exposed a lack of options at the back.
However, the budget for January will be limited due to the £200million-plus spent in the summer. Arteta will likely have to settle for just two of the four signings in January.

Arsenal will have more to spend if they are able to shift out players not deemed a big part of Arteta’s plans. Emile Smith Rowe and Eddie Nketiah have both been linked with exits.
