With just under two weeks of the January transfer window remaining, all eyes will be on the Emirates Stadium to see what business the Gunners, who defeated Newcastle United 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium, will complete before the window closes for business.
Arsenal have been one of the Premier League’s busiest clubs so far this month, signing highly-rate centre-back Omar Rekik from Hertha Berlin, whilst goalkeeper Matt Macey, centre-back William Saliba and left-back Sead Kolasinac have all left the club.
Macey has joined Hibernian on a permanent basis whilst Saliba and Kolasinac have joined Nice and Schalke on loan for the remainder of the season, respectively.
But whilst Mesut Ozil is poised to be the next outgoing from the Emirates Stadium, the Gunners remain keen on strengthening their squad, particularly their attacking options.
In recent weeks, the likes of Emiliano Buendia, Julian Brandt and Houssem Aouar have been amongst those linked with a move to north London.

Arsenal legend says Buendia may not be the right fit
Norwich City star Emiliano Buendia has been linked with a move to the Gunners.
The 24-year-old shone for the Canaries last term, despite them getting relegated to the Championship.
But the Argentine has continued that good form this term, scoring seven goals and providing seven assists in 20 appearances.
But former Gunner Alan Smith is not fully convinced by the attacking midfielder.
“It’s always the right thing to bring in new players but only if you can get the right players,” Smith told Sky Sports on Arsenal’s transfer plans.
“Somebody who is going to suit what you are looking for, and importantly, who is good enough and who is the right character as well.
“Sometimes that is the hard part in judging whether they are right for the club.
“Can they handle a step up? For example, somebody like Emi Buendia at Norwich or Yves Bissouma at Brighton, can they handle the step up in expectation at a bigger club?
“Some people can, some can’t, but you can never be certain until a player arrives.”
