After Arsenal got off to a perfect start by beating Fulham 3-0 in their Premier League opener, that could give club chiefs the push to continue their summer business.
The gunners have been linked to both Thomas Partey and Houssem Aouar while Emiliano Martinez, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Matteo Guendouzi remain potential departures.
Arteta has now been asked what his plans are for the final three weeks of the window, but he took his chance to state that some of the things he has read have been wide of the mark.
He said: “I don’t know. I am not going to discuss here what the things that happened internally.
“But a lot of the things they have been writing, I can tell you they are not true.”
Free agent Willian set up two of Gunners’ goals at Craven Cottage on Saturday but it was Gabriel who stole the show with a commanding defensive performance and a goal for himself.
The Brazilian pair have subsequently been praised by their manager.
