Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta has confirmed that the club will be looking for at least two signings during the January transfer window, and with Granit Xhaka looking for a move away from the Emirates, one of those recruits is likely to be a midfielder.
Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi performed well in the defeat to Chelsea yesterday, but there are not many other midfielders in the squad who can play a similar role to those two players.
Mohamed Elneny is out on loan, while Calum Chambers (who has played in midfield) is likely to be out for a while with a knee problem.
