Arsenal have reportedly given Mikel Arteta the green light to spend in the January transfer window.
That’s according to a recent report from Football Insider, who claims the Gunners’ hierarchy are willing to spend as much as £50 million on one player as they look to give their manager the funds required to continue the side’s title challenge.

Aston Villa’s Douglas Luiz and Real Sociedad’s Martin Zubimendi have both been heavily linked with moves to the Emirates.
