By 11 p.m. tonight, Arsenal chief Edu might have signed two players for Mikel Arteta.
Edu, Arsenal’s senior executive, is in charge of the Emirates Stadium’s transfer business.
So far this summer, Edu has signed five players for Arsenal. Despite this, the Gunners are still aiming to strengthen their roster before the transfer deadline. As the clock ticks down, Express Sport will look at two players they could sign.
Martin Odegaard, an Arsenal playmaker, has already joined the club this summer.
After impressing on loan at Real Madrid last season, the Norway international returned to the Emirates Stadium.
But, with Arsenal’s lack of imagination, there’s still a chance they’ll sign Lyon’s Houssem Aouar.
A year ago, the France international was on their radar.
The Gunners, though, decided to invest their money on Thomas Partey instead following a lengthy saga.

If Aouar is still on the market as the clock ticks down, Arsenal may see a window of opportunity.
The playmaker has also been offered to Tottenham Hotspur.
Spurs’ failure to reach an agreement with Lyon thus far offers Arsenal hope of completing this signing.
If they do, Aouar’s followers will be ecstatic.
Arsenal also has to win back fans after a poor start to the Premier League season, in which they have lost all three games without scoring a single goal.

Hector Bellerin could be on his way out of Arsenal today.

Atletico Madrid right-back Kieran Trippier is one player Arsenal is considering as a possible replacement.
At Euro 2020, the England international shone for Gareth Southgate’s team.
He also played a key role in Diego Simeone’s club winning the La Liga title last season.
Manchester United has been connected, especially with Diogo Dalot’s future uncertain.
However, with Dalot appearing increasingly likely to stay at Old Trafford, Trippier is unlikely to appear at the Theatre of Dreams.
Arsenal will have another opportunity to act as a result of this.
Even if Bellerin stays at Arsenal, the Gunners require a new full-back to help them kick on to the next level. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
