Arsenal could once again be busy in the transfer market if their form does not pick up between now and January.
But they are currently 11th in the Premier League after a run of three defeats in four games.
Mikel Arteta still has several players at the club he would like to offload while he plots his next targets with technical director Edu.
Here, we’ve taken a look at the latest Arsenal transfer rumours.
Barcelona considering a move for Mustafi
Barcelona could make a surprise move for Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi in January, according to Spanish publication Sport .
The Catalan club are short of options at the back, with Gerard Pique, Clément Lenglet and Ronald Araujo the only available defenders as things stand.
Barcelona have reportedly identified Mustafi as a possible target, given that he is likely to be relatively inexpensive.
The Germany international is out of contract in the summer and has been on the fringes at Arsenal this season.
Milan could hijack Arsenal interest in Bayern defender
Milan are set to join the race for Bayern Munich centre-back Jerome Boateng, who has been the subject of interest from Arsenal.
MilanLive claim that the Italian giants are considering a move for the 32-year-old, with his contract set to expire at the end of the season.
Arsenal have been linked with Boateng, while Chelsea and Tottenham are also said to be monitoring his availability.
If the Gunners do intend to move for the Germany international, they could face a difficult battle to secure his signature.
Hungary manager gives verdict on Szoboszlai destination
Hungary coach Marco Rossi has claimed a move to Germany is “more likely” for Arsenal linked midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai.
The 20-year-old has emerged as one of Europe’s brightest talents with Austrian side RB Salzburg, leading to interest from some of the continent’s top clubs.
Arsenal are expected to face competition from the likes of RB Leipzig, Real Madrid and Milan.
But Hungary manager Rossi has suggested the Bundesliga could be Szoboszlai’s next destination.
“My feeling is that he is more likely to end up in Germany,” he told CalcioNapoli24 TV (via Calciomercato ).
“He is ready to make the leap in quality, going to the Bundesliga is less of a change.”
