Arsenal are seeking to return to winning ways against Chelsea in the Premier League this evening, having won just one of their league matches under Mikel Arteta.
The Gunners have struggled for stability this season and have some holes within their squad following the season-ending injury suffered by Calum Chambers and the suspension picked up by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Arteta is in the market for additions during the January transfer window but there is now just 10 days remaining for business to be completed before the market slams shut.
Plenty of names continue to be linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium though and we have gathered some of the latest rumours below.

A fee of £17m would be enough to persuade Milan into a sale for the creative midfielder, although it remains to be seen whether Arsenal are genuinely interested.
Fleck price stated
Sheffield United will demand a fee of £20m for the services of midfielder John Fleck amid reported interest from Arsenal, The Daily Express states.
Mikel Arteta is said to be keen on bringing the former Rangers man to the Emirates Stadium in the summer and Fleck’s contract in South Yorkshire is due to expire at the end of next season.
