Arsenal News: Mikel Arteta on the rest of the transfer window

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta gave little away on the club's January transfer plans when he faced the media ahead of Tuesday's match against Southampton.

With a week left of the transfer window and with things hotting up across Europe, the Spaniard was asked about the club's plans, following a busy window in which a number of players have left through the exit door. 

Arteta was coy on new arrivals and chose to look at how the Coronavirus pandemic has affected the business. 

"I think it will depend on how the virus allows our lives to get back to normal. When we start to have some crowds in our stadium, the sponsors to be back on track, there are so many things that at the moment I cannot influence and I cannot respond to,"

"Football at the end has to be sustainable so in relation to the resources that we have, you can spend your money how you want to. There are regulators to make sure that that happens and football has a lot of money because it was producing a lot of money and let’s see where this virus takes the game,"

The Gunners have been linked with a number of players, with Real Madrid's Martin Ødegaard high on the club's wish-list.

The player will reportedly arrive on a loan deal, with the Gunners having an option to turn it into a permanent deal. 

Mesut Ozil is the latest Gunner to leave the club, following in the footsteps of Sead Kolasinac, Sokratis, and William Saliba.
