The new additions impressed for the majority of the season, however, they fell just short of returning to the Champions League. Instead, they will be competing in next campaign’s Europa League, as Arteta is tasked with picking his squad back up to challenge once again.
The summer transfer window offers the perfect opportunity to do just that, adding squad depth and quality to their ranks. On the task ahead, the manager said: “We are going to have certain resources, not unlimited resources, some resources.
“We don’t know what the rest are going to have in terms of resources, which I’m assuming is going to be challenging because now it’s not a top three or top four league. Now it is a top eight or 10 teams that are involved. That’s why we have to find a way to do again what we did last summer.”
With plenty of time left in the window, here’s a look at the full list of ins and outs at Arsenal.
Marquinhos (São Paulo – £3.15million)
Fabio Vieira (Porto – £31.5million)
Matt Turner (New England Revolution – £5.73million)
Alexandre Lacazette (Lyon – Free transfer)
Konstantinos Mavropanos (VFB Stuttgart – £2.88million)
Matteo Guendouzi (Marseille – £9.9million)
