​Arsenal manager Arteta confirms planning with Edu ahead of January window

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta admits he is making plans for the January transfer window with the club's technical director Edu.

The Gunners brought in Gabriel Magalhaes and Thomas Partey for big money in the summer.

They also signed Willian on a free transfer and made other moves.

But Arteta wants to sign more players, and is particularly interested in Red Bull Salzburg star Dominik Szoboszlai, per Goal.com.

"We are planning, talking with Edu and with the club about the things we can do in January," he told reporters.

"At the moment it's pretty difficult, unpredictable as well in terms of places as we are very restricted at the moment.

"We'll see what happens, I think things will move in the market, we will be prepared, we will need to do something knowing the limitations of that market in January and the limitations we have as well to sign players."
