Edu has already held talks over £22m Arsenal transfer to complete Mikel Arteta’s squad

Arsenal are already making plans for the transfer windows in 2021.

Mikel Arteta’s first two windows since being appointed Gunners manager has seen him mainly focus on improving his side’s defence, with Cedric Soares, Pablo Mari, and Gabriel Magalhaes all arriving in the calender year.

But attention has since turned to bolstering Arsenal’s midfield options and the summer deadline day signing of Thomas Partey – for £45m from Atletico Madrid – is just the beginning.

One is a new striker amid links to Patson Daka as well as Odsonne Edouard of Red Bull Salzburg and Celtic respectively, and the other is a creative midfielder.

Lyon playmaker Houssem Aouar was tipped for a move to the Emirates Stadium in the summer, only to end up staying in France. Although it has been revealed that he dreams of playing in the Premier League one day.

An alternative to Aouar for Arsenal is Dominik Szoboszlai.
