Arsenal report: Mikel Arteta committed to signing winger in January

Arsenal will add a winger to their squad in January, after failing to land one during the summer transfer window.

It’s according to reports that Mikel Arteta is committed to signing a wide man as he wants new signing Marquinhos to experience more minutes of competitive football and can’t offer the Brazilian adequate playing time.

Marquinhos joined the Gunners for £3million over the summer and scored on his first start in an Arsenal shirt against Zurich in the Europa League last week. With the Gunners playing four competitions, having extra bodies in the squad is useful – especially as the youngster can replace Bukayo Saka.

But Marquinhos is still raw and Arteta would like to give him the freedom to develop away from Arsenal at the top level, with The sun (opens in a new tab) claiming the Spaniard will look to loan the 19-year-old out in January.
