Mikel Arteta Says Everything Is Conceivable As Arsenals Transfer Deadline Approaches

When the transfer window shuts at the end of the month, Mikel Arteta thinks “everything is conceivable” as Deadline Day approaches.
With the transfer market closing on August 31, Premier League clubs have less than three weeks to bolster their rosters.
Arsenal have signed Ben White, Albert Sambi Lokonga, and Nuno Tavares so far this summer, but they are still looking for a new goalkeeper, midfielder, and forward.
Brentford Arsenal Friday 13th August 7:00pm Kick off 8:00pm The Gunners are interested in bringing back England internationals Aaron Ramsdale, Tammy Abraham, and James Maddison, as well as Martin Odegaard.
“Everything is conceivable and there are still a lot of things to be done and a lot of clubs engaged,” Arteta believes Arsenal will be active in the market until Deadline Day.
“In the last week or so, you can see that the ball starts to roll at a different speed.”
It’s been a particularly difficult transfer window, and a lot is likely to happen in the next week or so.
“It’s how deals progress, and occasionally something that wasn’t conceivable on August 12th is possible on the last day.”
Arsenal have spent over PS70 million on their three recruits this summer, but Arteta thinks they cannot equal the spending power of rivals such as Manchester City and Chelsea.
“We have owners who are willing to invest in the team and they want to get the team better and with bigger ambitions,” he said. “We have owners who are willing to invest in the team and they want to get the team better and with bigger aims,” he said.
“We’re attempting to strike a balance because we must be really cautious at the same time.”
We need to be in a financially stable and healthy position for the club.
“It’s been quite hectic.”
We are, without a doubt, dealing with the most difficult transfer market in this business in recent years, and we are attempting to adapt.
“The club, the owners, and I all have the same goal in mind: to make this team much better.”
We realize we still have work to do to acquire what we want.” Arsenal’s purchasing power could be boosted by the sale of Joe Willock, who has had a bid of PS25 million accepted by the Gunners.
Willock scored eight goals in 14 games on loan at St James’ Park last season, but his return has been delayed due to a breakdown in personal terms.
When asked if Willock will remain an Arsenal player, Arteta replied, “I don’t know,” adding, “The situation is that he is our player.”
“We’ve had some chats because this is about not only what we want to accomplish, but the player’s interests, the role that a player can fit inside a club,” says Joe Willock, who impressed on loan at Newcastle in the second part of last season.
“What he’s done has put him in a pretty good position where he can choose from a wider range of possibilities for his future.”
This is what we’re trying to define right now.” Arteta’s attention will shift from the transfer market to the pitch on Friday, when Arsenal hosts Brentford in the Premier League season opener, which will be shown live on Sky Sports.
After two consecutive eighth-place finishes, the Gunners will be hoping to better their league form this season, but Arteta believes that focusing on his team’s performances rather than a specific league position is the way to go.
“Our goal is to achieve consistency, which will help us win more football games.”
That’s what I expect from the team, and if we can do it consistently in every game, we’ll be in good shape.
“But, that’s something we haven’t done in the past – constantly providing the best version.”
That’s something we have to do, and the results will come as a result.” Follow the summer transfer window with Sky Sports You can keep up with all the latest transfer news and speculations in our dedicated Transfer Centre blog on Sky Sports’ digital platforms, as well as on Sky Sports News.
