Arsenal Transfer News Mikel Arteta Believes The Clubs Business Isnt Finished Yet

Mikel Arteta concedes that there are still a lot of unanswered concerns for Arsenal in the transfer window, but he is “confident” that business will be done in the coming weeks.
Thus far, the Arsenal have signed England defender Ben White from Brighton, midfielder Albert Lokonga from Anderlecht, and full-back Nuno Tavares from Benfica.
They’ve also been linked with a slew of other names as Arteta attempts to assemble a side capable of improving on back-to-back eighth-place performances in the Premier League.
Ben White joined Arsenal from Brighton earlier this summer (John Walton/PA) (PA Wire) Other rumoured targets include James Maddison, Aaron Ramsdale, Martin Odegaard, and Houssem Aouar.
Arsenal, on the other hand, will begin the Premier League season away at newly promoted Brentford on Friday night, with only the three additions made earlier in the transfer window.
“I think we’ve done a few things we wanted to achieve in this first phase of the transfer window, and it’s going to help us get the squad in a much better situation,” Arteta said when asked how he rated Arsenal’s transfer window so far.
“There’s still a little time left in the window, so I’m sure everything will work out in the end.”
We determined what we wanted to accomplish and how we might strengthen our team in the short, medium, and long term, as well as what we required to do so.
Because our past is linked to it, fans need to be enthused and see a club capable of competing with those teams.
Mikel Arteta: “We identified the profile of player that suits the model that we have at the moment at the club that can continue our financial condition, and we made three movements in regard to that,” while not being certain of additional action.
He also admitted that Arsenal must entice their fans by demonstrating that they can compete with their traditional rivals, implying that any transfer business might take place until the end of the window.
“Fans need to be enthused, and they need to see a squad capable of competing with those teams,” he said, “because our history is tied to that.”
Arsenal have been linked with a move for Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale (PA Wire/Nigel French).
It is the goal, and it should be the goal.
“At this point, it’s something that won’t be doable on August 12 but will be possible on the last day.”
“It’s more essential if you’re happy bringing the player in or not.”
Everything, I believe, is linked to who we bring in, who we let go, and our ability to keep foreign players in the squad.
There are still a lot of unanswered questions.
In terms of outgoings, Arteta stated that Joe Willock is in a position to make his own decisions as a potential deal to Newcastle rumbles on.
“The situation is that he’s our player, and we’ve talked about it because it’s not only about what we want to do,” he explained.
“It’s about a player’s interest and the role he or she can play in a squad and a club.”
“What he’s done is put himself in a position where he can pick a little bit more about what his future might look like, and that’s what we’re trying to define right now.”
