Arsenal fans are desperate to see two more incoming deals before the transfer window closes.
The Gunners have already signed Gabriel and Willian after their FA Cup final win over Chelsea, having also been heavily linked to Houssem Aouar of Lyon and Thomas Partey of Atletico Madrid.
Although the duo have regularly been mentioned on social media, the changing in roles for Mikel Arteta and potential sale of Emiliano Martinez excited supporters on Thursday evening.
The club announced that their Spanish boss is now the first-team manager rather than head coach which will give him a greater say over transfers, while Martinez could join Aston Villa in a £20m boost to their budget.

One fan demanded: “He’s loves Aouar and Partey so get them.”
A second said: “Since he is the manager now and he loves Partey and Aouar, it means we get both. Good news!”
In relation to Martinez, another added: “I look at in from the positives, the 20 million pounds would be good to get the likes of Aouar and Thomas Partey, so this is good for us.”
With a fourth concluding: “I’m fully brought into the idea we’re getting Aouar and Partey.”

Arsenal Chief Executive Vinai Venkatesham told the club’s official website of the decision to change the title of Arteta: “Mikel’s been here since the end of December and the last nine months have probably been the most challenging nine months in Arsenal’s history – and we’ve been around for 134 years.
“Despite all of those challenges, Mikel has been driving this football club forward.
“He has lifted the spirits and lifted the energy here at London Colney and with Arsenal fans all across the world. He is doing an absolutely phenomenal job.
