MIKEL ARTETA has flown out to Los Angeles to meet Stan Kroenke as Arsenal chiefs plot their next transfer moves.
The Gunners are sitting pretty on top of the Premier League table but the club are being linked with January business to give the side a boost.
Players not at the World Cup have headed out to Dubai for warm-weather training during the break.
And Arteta has had an extra task on his hands as he uses the domestic football pause to catch up with club chiefs.
He was pictured with Arsenal owners Stan and Josh Kroenke, sporting director Edu and non-executive director Tim Lewis in LA.
The group appeared to bump into AFTV presenter Cecil Jee who gathered them all for a picture.
The Gunner bigwigs likely had several different topics to discuss with potential transfers high on the list.
Arteta will be reportedly handed £50m to give the club a boost through new signings.
And fans on Twitter, seeing the snap of the Arsenal chiefs together, were quick to provide suggestions.
Multiple supporters called on the club to make an audacious move for England star Jude Bellingham.
Other fans called for a transfer swoop for Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic following injury fears around Gabriel Jesus.
But it is believed the club will not attempt a move for a new striker despite the Brazilian’s potential absence.
Meanwhile, one fan simply wrote: “Release the cheque book, Josh.”
Arsenal went into the World Cup break five points clear at the top of the table after beating Wolves.
They restart their campaign on Boxing Day against West Ham before a tricky set of January fixtures.
