Arsenal are targeting two loan signings before the January transfer window ends in two weeks time.
This is according to respected British journalist David Ornstein who covers Arsenal a lot.
In his podcast known as Ornstein & Chapman, David Ornstein said that the target areas for Arsenal and new manager Mikel Arteta are the left side centre back, fullback and centre midfield positions.
David Ornstein said that Arsenal won’t be spending money in this window and that they would rather wait till this summer to fully back Mikel Arteta in the transfer window.

In the past days, Manchester City star John Stones has been linked with the North London giants as they try to sign a centre back to offset the loss of Calum Chambers to a serious knee injury.
John Stones can’t guarantee that Pep Guardiola will play him consistently and he’s said to be weighing up the interest from Arsenal and Mikel Arteta whom he has a close relationship with at the Etihad Stadium before the Spaniard left for North London.
Apart from John Stones, AC Milan midfielder Frank Kessie is another transfer target for the Gunners though his club would prefer a permanent deal ahead of a loan move.
