Arsenal have been linked with signing a new central striker this summer with Lille’s Jonathan David attracting attention.
But Edu’s immediate plans are said to by tying up permanent deals for Mat Ryan and Dani Ceballos.
Martin Odegaard impressed on his full debut against Leeds at the weekend having joined on loan from Real Madrid.
And Arteta has already hinted that he would like to sign the midfielder when his loan spell comes to an end.
“Well, he’s got the potential [to be one of the best],” Arteta said. “I followed him very closely when he was at Real Sociedad and he was really impressive over there for long periods.
“He had a really successful season over there and that’s one of the reasons why I was so convinced that he’s a player for us. He’s a player that I really like and, as you say, still has huge potential to become even better.”
