Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta and the club’s technical director Edu are preparing their list of January transfer targets before the window opens next month.
The Gunners have made a disappointing start to their Premier League campaign. They are in 14th place in the table after collecting 13 points in 10 games – their slowest start to the season since 1981.
Arteta brought seven new faces to the club in the summer, but formulated an action plan with Edu before the winter window.

“We plan to speak to Edu and the club about the things we can do in January,” said Arteta.
“But right now it’s pretty difficult, unpredictable, even in terms of places where we’re very limited right now.
“We’ll see what happens. I think things will move in the market. We’ll be prepared. We have to do something to know the limits of this market in January and the limits that we have to be players commit. “
