Mikel Arteta plans to sign two midfielders after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang finally penned a new deal with Arsenal, reports say.

The Gabon international ended a long-running transfer saga on Tuesday by signing a three-year deal with Arsenal.

Getting Aubameyang to pen a new contract was Arteta’s No.1 priority and now the Arsenal manager can turn his attentions to securing two more top targets.

The Mirror claim Arteta plans to follow up the capture of Aubameyang with the addition of two midfielders, with Thomas Partey and Houssem Aouar top of the list.


Arteta is aware Arsenal will need to sell before they can make offers for Partey and Aouar and has green lit the exits of Sead Kolasinac, Matteo Guendouzi and Lucas Torreira.

The Gunners will receive a funds boost from the sale of Emiliano Martinez, who is set to join Aston Villa in a deal worth around £20million.

Party and Aouar will be costly signings, with the Lyon playmaker’s stock soaring during his side’s Champions League run.
