Before the window slams shut, the Gunners are said to be keen on freshening up their attack and could offer Aubameyang and Lacazette as lightweight in deals for outcast Barcelona players.
Barca, meanwhile, are targeting reinforcements up front after Lionel Messi's exit and they are hopeful of signing one of the Arsenal forwards if, of course, they can strike a bargain deal.
And despite the Catalan club's financial crisis, Sport also claim that the Blaugrana will have funds for transfers, as long as they can offload defender Samuel Umtiti, midfielder Miralem Pjanic and striker Martin Braithwaite.
"They feel unwell, that’s all I can say," Arteta said of the two strikers.
"It is [a big miss] but in the world that we’re living in, I think the only permanent thing right now are changes.
"So instead of looking for excuses, you have to seek for solutions and that’s what we try to do every day."
With both players on eye-watering wages, it is believed that Arsenal are not satisfied with the recent performances of either player.
It remains to be seen, however, if Arteta would be interested in any players in Barca's first team squad. Watch this space.
