Ex-Gunner “100 per cent” expects Arteta to get the same financial backing he got last summer

Arsenal signed Martin Odegaard, Nuno Tavares and Ben White, among others, in the last summer transfer window to bolster their squad.

They joined as a part of a £150million spending spree the club embarked on to make the team stronger.

One benefit they have enjoyed so far is an improved performance which could end with the Gunners earning a top-four place when this campaign finishes.

Seeing that it pays to spend money on good players, former Arsenal player, Kevin Campbell now expects them to back Mikel Arteta again in the next transfer window.

Asked if the Spaniard might receive that much money again, he tells Football Insider: “100 per cent.

“The board clearly like the work he is doing. For the first time they have a manager that they trust. They really trust Arteta.

“It has not been easy. They have come under flak at times. They have never had someone go into the dressing room and sort it out. Arteta has done that.

“It is a young team now. They have developed a connection with the fanbase as well which is invaluable. Everyone is together. It is really impressive what Arteta has done.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Arteta has proven his worth with this team and its performance so far shows it would do much better if he is backed with even better players.

We expect the board to do just that when this campaign eventually finishes in the summer.

  1. Campbell’s last paragraph has to be about the match going fans, especially the ones that go to the away games, as it’s not about the ones on social media sites.

  2. Keep spending big money on good players and ignoring where the money is coming from, sounds like a recipe for disaster.

    What have we got in return for spending close to 400M over four years? (1) A depleted squad, struggling to find two center backs for a critical game? (2) A grand total 2.5M (from the Mavropanos deal) in outgoing players’ sales?

    100%, the Ex-Gunner is praying to sugardaddy Kroenke.

    1. You forgot, we got 8 mil for Gouendouzi, yet another sound deal. We also gave away chambers.and Auba.

  3. Arsenal had failed for investment, though spends huge money, team wasn’t improved in it’s squad. During the fail even we experienced Raul Sanllehi’s corruption. In transection many football clubs have experienced bumpy usually, look at ManU.

    But since MA hold and handle steering, at least the performance and quality of squad has been improved as worthy as the money spent. though there is a doubt to MA, so far the direction seems having been correct.

    I am glad seeing my team getting better from years struggling.
