Edu’s January transfer window plans, Daniel Ek takeover latest: Behind the scenes at Arsenal

Arsenal’s recent revival in form has put the club in a strong position going into October, but there are still plenty of talking points about the Gunners right now.

Daniel Ek was seen sitting alongside Arsenal legend Thierry Henry at the north London derby on Sunday, while speculation over Bukayo Saka is being talked about with the youngster only having two years left on his current contract.

chief Arsenal reporter Chris Wheatley took part in a Q&A on Monday where those important questions were answered.

Is there any news on a new contract for Saka? 2 years left on his current deal

No real concerns from Arsenal about Saka’s situation. The player is happy at Arsenal and I’d expect talks to be opened on a new deal soon.

I don’t believe any decision has been made yet but there is always the possibility. We’ll have to wait and see.

I wonder if the club decided to sell/offer a new contract to Nicolas Pepe, as he will have two years left next summer?

I haven’t heard anything on Pepe being offered a new contract. He’s in Mikel Arteta’s plans for now but it’s one to watch over the coming months.

Yesterday’s win had me and my buddies in jubilation that a lot of us fans have not felt in quite a while. I was wondering what positions we’ll be looking to strengthen in January’s window and if we are aware of any primary targets.

The next positions Arsenal are expected to target are midfield and defence. A back-up goalkeeper for Aaron Ramsdale once Bernd Leno leaves is likely too.
