The Gunners will be hoping to continue their winning streak when they face Tottenham Hotspurs at Emirates Stadium, with Arteta's side expecting to be without key players such as Thomas Partey, Mohammed Elneny, and Pierre Aubameyang.
Due to the absence of the midfield duo and Auba's future, the Spanish manager is reportedly ready to strengthen his current squad with new arrivals, and it appears that a double deal is in the works.
According to Football Insider, Arsenal's £62.5 million bid for Fiorentina forward Dusan Vlahovic has reportedly been accepted by the Italian club, with the 21-year-old described as Arteta's preferred target.
According to the same report, the North London club are closing in on a loan move for Brazilian and Juventus midfielder Arthur Melo over a potential switch to Emirates, with medicals already scheduled if a deal is reached.
Vlahovic is an ideal replacement for Auba, while Melo is seen as a backup for Thomas Partey and Mohammed Elneny, who are both in Afcon.
Meanwhile, Arsenal may be without five key players when they face Tottenham Hotspurs this weekend.
Finally, do you believe Vlahovic and Arthur Melo are the right targets for Mikel Arteta's plans?
