Arsenal are not expected to have a busy January transfer window after a relatively expensive summer period.
The Gunners spent just over £70million over the summer as Mikel Arteta looked to get his side closer to the top four.
It may be a case of more outgoings than incomings this month at the Emirates Stadium, but there could also be some groundwork done ahead of the summer window.
In light of this, here is the latest round-up of Arsenal-related transfer stories and rumours from today.

Arteta wants Puig
Arsenal boss Arteta has told the club’s board that he wants to bring Barcelona youngster Riqui Puig to the club, according to Spanish news outlet Fichajes.
The report claims that the Gunners boss has put Puig high on his wishlist this month and has asked the club’s hierarchy about making a move.
Recent speculation has claimed that Arteta is chasing a creative midfielder and the 21-year-old certainly fits into that bracket.
Speaking back in September, Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman admitted that he wanted to send the La Masia graduate out on loan as he couldn’t promise him regular minutes.
Ozil closes is on exit
Arsenal are close to finalising the early termination of Mesut Ozil’s contract at the club.
Once the deal has been terminated, Ozil is expected to join Fenerbahce as a free agent on a three-and-a-half year deal.
The 32-year-old playmaker, who is the club’s highest earner, has been frozen out of Arteta’s plans this season, with the Spaniard not selecting him for either the Premier League or Europa League squad.
Fenerbahce are now hopeful of confirming the former Germany international’s move in the next few days, the report claims.
