Mikel Arteta is believed to be the man the Arsenal board have lined up to replace the Frenchman but with the transfer window already open, Sven Mislintat and co are already trying to get some deals done before the new man arrives.

Two players linked with a move to the Emirates this summer are Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Caglar Soyuncu as the north Londoners look to shore things up at the back and finally fix their defensive woes.

And Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka has given fans hope that a deal has been done after he liked an Instagram comment claiming they had signed.

“Sokratis and Soyuncu is done,” said the comment on Xhaka’s most recent Instagram post, which was liked by the Swiss playmaker.

While it’s by no means an actual confirmation, it hasn’t stopped fans from getting excited about the prospect as they begin to plan for life without Wenger for the first time in more than two decades.

Meanwhile, Arteta is expected to be announced as the new Arsenal manager in the coming days with reports claiming that he may bring in club legend Thierry Henry as an assistant.
