In his interview with Sky Sports on Thursday, the Spanish manager [Arteta] talked about how he is being in connection with the whole squad.
"We cannot touch each other at the moment, but we're having group and individual talks. It's so important that we keep connected so they can see there's a relation between what we're doing now and when we restart training,” Arteta told Sky Sports.
As for his current preparations for the upcoming transfer window, Arteta revealed that he has two or three different scenarios in mind. However, there are external factors in which he can’t control.
