MIKEL ARTETA has flown to Los Angeles to meet Stan Kroenke as Arsenal bosses plot their next transfer moves.
The Gunners sit pretty high in the Premier League table but the club are being linked with the January deal to give the side a boost.
Players not taking part in the World Cup left for warm-weather training in Dubai during the break.
And Arteta had an extra chore to do as he uses the home football break to meet with club bosses.
He was pictured with Arsenal owners Stan and Josh Kroenke, sporting director Edu and non-executive director Tim Lewis in LA.
The group appeared to bump into AFTV host Cecil Jee, who gathered them all for a photo.
The Gunner bigwigs likely had several different issues to discuss, with potential transfers high on the list.
Arteta will reportedly be paid £50m to give the club a boost through signings.
And fans on Twitter, seeing the Arsenal bosses’ merger, were quick to make suggestions.
Several fans urged the club to make a bold move for England star Jude Bellingham.

The midfielder has managed to build on his already tremendous reputation with a brilliant World Cup campaign and is linked with the biggest sides in Europe.
Other fans called for a transfer swoop for Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic after injury concerns for Gabriel Jesus.
However, it is believed that despite the Brazilian’s potential absence, the club won’t try to find a new striker.
One fan, meanwhile, simply wrote, “Let go of the checkbook Josh.”
Arsenal went into the World Cup break five points clear after beating Wolves as leaders.
They kick off their Boxing Day campaign against West Ham ahead of a tricky series of January games.
