Mikel Arteta has been told he can save Arsenal £70million in the transfer market by dropping his intention to bring a new striker to the club.

The Gunners could need reinforcements up front with ex-captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leaving in the January transfer window and Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah’s contracts expiring in the summer.

But club legend Paul Merson has told the Gunners boss a solution could be right in front of him already.

It comes as the club is set for another transfer saga with another former captain being linked with a move abroad.

And Arsenal have been told that failing to land Champions League football this season would be Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ‘s fault.

Champions League warning

Mikel Arteta has been told that if his side miss out on Champions League qualification this season it would be because of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Club icon Nigel Winterburn has opened up on Aubameyang’s dramatic departure from the Emirates Stadium following his very public falling out with Arteta.

Aubameyang was ostracised from Arteta’s first-team squad as he was stripped of the captain’s armband and made to train alone following a disciplinary breach in December.

Arteta is expected to enter the transfer market in the summer for a new forward, with Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah set to leave when their contracts expire.
