Mikel Arteta has played down the prospect of Arsenal spending significant sums in the January transfer window.
Arsenal committed to £140 million on six summer signings with Aaron Ramsdale, Nuno Tavares, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Ben White, Albert Sambi Lokonga and Martin Odegaard all arriving at Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal also has five players entering the final six months of their existing contracts, most notably Alexandre Lacazette.
"We are in discussions, we have talks every week about it: how we can improve the team, what things can happen in the January transfer window can affect our squad," Arteta said on Wednesday morning.
"As you know, we have certain players with a little bit of uncertainty in the summer so we have to plan what is going to happen now and what is going to happen in the summer. A lot had to be done as well.
"We know and we don't expect big things happening but we are going to be very alert in the market to see if we can improve the team. And as well, we have to be prepared because things can happen, injuries arise in this period and you have to be prepared."
