New Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has made three transfer requests to the board ahead of the January transfer window according to France Football.
Mikel Arteta was named the new Gunners manager on Friday as a replacement for the sacked Unai Emery and the Spaniard has been handed a contract that runs until the summer of 2023.
He has been able to assert his authority on the Arsenal team ahead of his first game as the Gunners boss.
Mikel Arteta will take his Arsenal players to face South Coast club Bournemouth in the Premier League for his first game as manager.

The aforementioned publication revealed that Mikel Arteta has told the Arsenal board that he wants three signings in the January transfer window.
It was revealed that the former Arsenal player has requested two center-backs and one defensive midfielder.
Arsenal signed two central defenders in the summer namely David Luiz and William Saliba but that has not improved the Gunners defence in any way as there’s an argument that the rearguard is worse than what it was at the start of the season.
William Saliba is not at Arsenal at the moment as he’s on loan at Saint Etienne who sanctioned his sale this summer.
