Unai Emery plots Arsenal transfer raid – but could hand Mikel Arteta lifeline

A replacement for Bellerin will be required, but it is thought that an attacking midfielder remains Arteta’s main priority. 

The Gunners missed out on long-term target Emi Buendia who has since left Norwich to join Aston Villa in a club-record deal which could see the Villains pay Daniel Farke’s side as much as £38m. 

Real Madrid star Martin Odegaard joined Arsenal on loan in January and impressed over the course of his six-month stay, endearing himself to fans with a North London Derby day goal in the 2-1 victory over Tottenham. 

He has since returned to Los Blancos, but reports suggest Arteta remains desperate to bring him to the Emirates on a permanent basis and could use the funds raised by Bellerin’s exit to do so.
