Edu and Mikel Arteta prioritising two Arsenal transfers in January as rebuild continues

Mikel Arteta signed three players for Arsenal this summer but the boss is reportedly not done there when it comes to rebuilding his squad.

Arteta took over at the Emirates last December and has seen a steady improvement of the Gunners and won the FA Cup last season.
