Transfer: Arteta changes plans after Sesko snubs Arsenal

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, is set to prioritise the signing of a central midfielder after missing out on Benjamin Sesko.

After keeping their powder dry in January, the Gunners were keen to bring in a striker.

And 21-year-old Sesko quickly emerged as Arteta’s top target.

But the Slovenia international has now decided to sign a new contract with RB Leipzig.

According to The Athletic, this has forced Arsenal to change their transfer plans.

Strengthening in midfield is now a priority, with Arteta likely to target a No.6.

The club signed Declan Rice for a record £105million last year, but his marauding performances have convinced Arteta to give the England star a permanent license to roam.
