Arsenal fans have been celebrating after a report by the Daily Mail revealed what Mikel Arteta is planning for the summer transfer window.
According to the publication, the Spaniard is targeting a box-to-box midfielder, a central defender and a creative central midfielder. The club have already been linked with a few players prior to the opening of the window with Feyenoord attacker Orkun Kokcu and Leicester City playmaker James Maddison both reportedly targets for the side.
One supporter was clearly a fan of the report over the 37-year-old’s demands, describing them as ‘glorious’.

The report ties in nicely with claims from The Sun’s Mark Irwin that the former Manchester City assistant coach could get rid of the likes of Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette. Arsenal’s top scorer seems to be attracting interest from Barcelona with Eric Abidal claiming he is a target for the La Liga outfit (Sport via Daily Mail). The news over Arteta’s plans has excited fans as they took to Twitter to react. Here is a selection of tweets from the Emirates Stadium faithful:
