Arsenal are looking to transfer a midfielder and they will do it in the winter transfer window.
Coach Mikel Arteta is not counting on the services of Thomas Partey who is injured too often and wants to leave him.
According to The Sun, Arsenal have shown interest in signing English midfielder Calvin Phillips, who is active at Manchester City.
Since moving to the Etihad for £45m last summer, Phillips has struggled to get minutes under Pep Guardiola.
The Gunners have signed Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus from Man City, who ultimately challenged for the Premier League title last season.
The 27-year-old has had very few opportunities this season, as he has played only one full match in the EFL Cup, while in the Champions League and Premier League he has only played 77 minutes from four meetings.
The Londoners are ready to offer up to 40 million euros for the transfer of Phillips to the Emirates Stadium.
