Arsenal face FFP constraints in January

Although Mikel Arteta insists that the club are willing to dip into the transfer market in January, concerns over FFP (Financial Fair Play) means that the amount that they have to spend may be limited.

The club spent more than ₤200 million on new players in the summer, with Declan Rice the most expensive arrival. FFP constraints meant that goalkeeper David Raya could only be signed on loan from Brentford, although they have already committed to make the move permanent.

And it may be that the club looks to the loan market again to fill gaps in the squad, with defence and midfield regarded as priority areas.

Whilst there has been speculation linking the club to sign another Brentford player, Ivan Toney, it seems that any move for a new striker may have to be deferred until the summer, when more funds will be available.
