Arteta Is the favourite with the bookmakers to become the first Premier League manager to be sacked this season, amidst links with former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte.

He has already spent close to £130 million to bring in Benn While, Albert Lakonga, Nuno Tavares, Martin Ǿdegaard and Aaron Ramsdale, but the spending may not stop there before the transfer window closes, with right-back now considered a priority.
Hector Bellerín continues to be associated with a move to Inter Milan, but Arteta would like to bring in a permanent replacement, with Kieran Trippier mong the names on their wish list.
