Mikel Arteta have brought in Willian from Chelsea on a free transfer, Gabriel Magalhaes from Lille for 22m pounds.

“We are still active in the market,” he said. “We are looking at different options, with players in and out. At the moment the squad balance is not ideal and what we want to achieve. There is still some work to do but we have to bear in mind the complication of this market and the complexity as well.

“Numbers wise, some positions are overbooked and some others, in terms of specific qualities that we need, they are still not there."

Arsenal are still in the race to sign Atletico Madrid midfielder, Thomas Partey. The Gunners have been unable to meet Atletico 44m pounds valuation of the player.

Also, Lyon recently turned down Arsenal's bid for Houssem Aouar despite the Gunners including Matteo Guendouzi in the deal.
