Mikel Arteta has revealed he is planning “two or three different scenarios” when it comes to Arsenal’s summer transfer window.
FIFA announced on Wednesday that they are to allow the summer transfer window to be moved and has recommended player contracts be extended until the season ends.
Arsenal currently have Dani Ceballos and Cedric Soares on loan while they also have the option to buy defender Pablo Mari. Arteta claimed last month that the Gunners need to sit down with captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang before the end of the season and thrash out a new deal.
Speaking exclusively to Sky Sports, the Arsenal boss said:
“I’m planning two or three different scenarios that we can face. Depending on one of those three, we will be able to do more, less or nothing.
“We have to react daily. We don’t know what the financial situation is going to be, we don’t know the rules, the timing, the window. There are so many things we cannot control at the moment.”
