Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta CONFIRMS January transfer spending spree to keep up Premier League title charge | The Sun

ARSENAL boss Mikel Arteta insisted the club will "look at everything" in the January transfer window to keep up their Premier League title charge.

The Gunners spent just under £120million in the summer window on five new faces.

Gabriel Jesus, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Fabio Vieira, Matt Turner and Marquinhos all arrived at the Emirates and Arsenal have reaped the rewards.

Arteta's men are currently sat top of the Premier League, two points above defending champions Manchester City, and the Gunners topped their Europa League group.

However, Arteta is keen to keep up momentum and continue to push for the Prem title until the very end.

And he will "look at everything" to bring the right players into the club mid-season.

However, Arteta also admitted January is a notoriously hard window to buy in.

He said: "The planning of that period is extremely difficult.

"First of all because we know the January window, how special it is, the opportunities that you have, the short window that you have.

“And obviously with the position that we are in right now as well, it demands as well another level of player – and that player has to be available.
