Arsenal have been dealt yet another reality check after an impressive unbeaten run.
Arteta bought in several new players in the summer, with Martin Odegarrd, Ben White and Sambi Lokonga among them.
However the Spaniard is likely to want to add more quality to his squad at the Emirates, whilst others may look to move on.
New arrivals often block other players from enjoying the amount of game time they would want, which could lead to some January exits.
These are the latest transfer rumours coming out of north London.

Milan involved in Sanches battle
The Portugal midfielder was a star for his country during Euro 2020 which, once again, put him on the map.
Sanches first rose to prominence back at Euro 2016 but his career has not gone on like many expected.
However he helped Lille win Ligue 1 last term and is now being linked with a move to another of Europe’s heavyweight.
Franck Kessie is likely to leave AC Milan which would leave the Italians needing to bolster their options whilst Arteta too is keen to add quality to his midfield.
Toon eye Elneny
The Egyptian’s contract will be up at the end of the season and Arsenal are keen to cash in whilst they can.
The Magpies are hoping to use their new found wealth to bolster their squad as they aim to retain Premier League status.
Elneny would present them with a midfield option and have the finances to match the player’s current earnings at the Emirates.
Jesse Lingard is among the other individuals on Newcastle’s shortlist.

Richards pens pro deal
Amani Richards has signed his first professional contract at Arsenal having joined from Chelsea in March.
The 17-year-old forward moved across London and is from a family who support the Gunners.
Richards has made six appearances for the under-18s so far this season, scoring one goal in the Premier League Cup.
“It’s a surreal feeling, especially because it’s my boyhood club and I grew up supporting them,” Amani told Arsenal.com.
“I had a lot of conversations with Per and many other people at the club and I felt like they believed in me a lot and this was the best step for me in my journey.”
