Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is set to be rewarded for a strong start to the season with a backing from the board that will allow him to sign £150m rated England midfielder Jude Bellingham in the summer according to a report on Football London.
Arteta himself has spoken about the atmosphere around London Colney and how it’s important that they continue to maintain standards as they look to put up a Premier League title challenge.
The priority though this January is to try and get a midfielder who can fill the void if Thomas is injured as there are concerns that the squad is a little light weight.
Real Madrid are quite keen admirers of the breakout English star but it will be interesting to see if they make a move for him after the World Cup or wait till the summer. Jude is concentrating on the World Cup in Qatar and will hope that he excels with the Three Lions.
