Mikel Arteta insists Arsenal's transfer business is far from complete as he told fans they can "relax" over the future of captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The Gunners have signed playmaker Willian on a free transfer from Chelsea, while also spending a reported £22million initial fee on Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes.

Despite their known financial struggles, summed up by the fact the club made 55 redundancies last month, Arsenal continue to be linked with moves for the likes of midfielders Daniel Partey and Houssem Aouar.

Arteta, who was promoted from head coach to first-team manager on Thursday, did little to quell speculation about future signings as he confirmed they are hopeful of more arrivals before the window closes on October 5.

"We are still active in the market, we are looking at different options," he said on the eve of Arsenal's Premier League opener away to newly-promoted Fulham.

Arsenal are still likely to move some players on before the deadline, but Arteta would not be drawn on the future of goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, who has been heavily linked with Aston Villa despite a fine end to last season.

One player who appears to be going nowhere is Aubameyang.

An announcement over a new contract is imminent and Arteta moved to assure fans they do not need to worry.

"I think they can be pretty relaxed," he said. Arteta also dismissed suggestions Alexandre Lacazette could depart .
