Arsenal had a successful summer transfer window in 2019 and even though some of their signings haven’t impressed as expected but the fans will still be expecting the club to do huge business in the upcoming window again as Mikel Arteta will need adequate backing if he is to succeed at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal signed two players on loan in the January transfer window and the club will have to decide on whether to keep them at the club in the summer transfer window and so these are some of the decisions that will have to be made, including letting go of the average players and as well as bringing in new players. Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta was today questioned on whether the gunners have a plan ahead of the upcoming summer transfer window which will be important for him as it will be his second transfer window since he took over the North Londoners.

Unlike his predecessor Unai Emery, Mikel Arteta was very detained in his explanation on what the club have prepared for the summer transfer window and the fans will be hoping that he has a say in the transfers so that he brings players that fit his system.

“Absolutely, we have to plan. We need to know the direction we want to have. To do that we need to bear in mind different scenarios.” said Arteta as per Football.London.

“With that in mind I have to tell the club what we need, where we think we can improve and where we want to aim. If we all aim for the same thing and we put a plan together to try to execute it and make the process as short as possible.”

Arsenal had a big clearout in the summer transfer window but there are reports that this time the gunners might not only release the average players but also sell some of their star players like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.
