Mikel Arteta Arsenal

Arsenal will reportedly back Mikel Arteta in the January transfer window, with the Spanish boss keen on strengthening key areas, as per 90min.

The Gunners are expected to be busy in the upcoming window with the objective of strengthening their squad in order to keep their brilliant performances going and maintain a title charge after the new year.

According to 90min, Arteta will be backed in January and funds will be available for him to sign top targets. Midfield is one of the areas where the north London club want to strengthen as they consider beneath the first team options they don’t have quality alternatives at the moment.

The report further states that attack is another position that Arteta wants to bolster. Mykhaylo Mudryk remains a target and Arsenal could be well-placed given their eagerness to do business in January. Cody Gakpo is also on the radar with 90min claiming Arsenal sent scouts to watch the PSV star at the weekend.

Arsenal to invest in January

Arsenal have been one of the biggest spenders in the Premier League in recent years. After investing around £140m during the summer of 2021, the Gunners splashed the cash once again this summer after spending around £120m. So, if they back Mikel Arteta once again this January then that would be a clear indication that the owners are keen on taking the club back to the top.

There was dissatisfaction among the fan base regarding the owners’ way of running the club and the Emirates faithful wanted the change a couple of years ago. However, since then, Arsenal have been on an upward trajectory under the guidance of Arteta along with the proper backing from the hierarchy.

The Gunners have now seemingly become one of the contenders to challenge for the Premier League title this term and their rise from a difficult situation has been one of the most impressive stories in football.

Arsenal should back Arteta in January and help him to fight for the title which hasn’t been achieved since 2004. Strengthening the midfield and the wide positions would be a wise decision, given they’re thin on numbers in those two departments. Adding more firepower to the squad would aid the Spanish boss in competing in all four competitions this term.
