Elsewhere, the club is racing to extend Ceballos’ loan deal while also extending Luiz’s contract. Regarding the latter, it’s unclear on how long this extension could be.
Talking to the media ahead of the Gunners clash versus Southampton, Arteta said he is optimistic about finishing these deals.
“It’s very complicated with the timing of it and some of the legal issues that are involved with that,” he said. “The club is trying to finalise everything in the next few hours and we have no choice, we have to do it and even more with all the injuries we’ve had. We are trying to resolve this.”
“I’m confident that we can do it. I hope so.”
