Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta says he could sign a left-back on transfer deadline day.
Arteta has said that Arsenal are working on bringing in a new left-back, and that a transfer could happen today.
The Gunners have been linked with Patrick van Aanholt, with The Mirror reporting that the North London club want to secure the services of the Crystal Palace left-back before the transfer window closes today.
