Mikel Arteta planning to make three summer signings from Spain

Arsenal has been linked with a move for three Spanish rising stars as Mikel Arteta looks to build the Arsenal team to his taste.

Since Arteta became the club’s manager he has been bringing several small changes to the side, but he is expected to make some interesting signings when the transfer window reopens.

A report from Spanish outlet Larazon is claiming that the Spaniard is targeting a return to La Liga to sign three of their promising players.

It claims that Arteta has plans to sign Athletic Bilbao’s Unai Nunez, Carlos Soler of Valencia and Marc Roca of Espanyol.

Nunez is a defender who starred for Spain in the European Under 19 Championships last year and has continued his development in the Spanish top flight.

Soler has also recently been linked with a move to Arsenal, he is a midfielder and he looks set to move to a bigger European side this summer.

Marc Roca is another midfielder who plays in a more defensive role and he has been touted to become a replacement for Lucas Torreira.

All three players would reportedly cost less than 100million and the Gunners will look to exploit Arteta’s Spanish influence to get a good deal.

  1. arsenal are right to let auba leave if he fails to put pen to paper.and bring in edwards or raul jiminez to fit in his boots.yes he is anice player,good at scoring but deosent want to sign to me celtic striker wil bring more to the. atimes it’s better to sell eve laccazette also and bring in some one like raul jiminez, jonathan david, and adward i belive the give aheadeche to the rivals

  2. Let arteta use that opportunity as possible as he can to avoid other clubs raiding our targets.

  3. Mikel has identified the key weakness, midfield, glad he wants young talent rather than the expensive over the hill useless injury prone players with big huge bags of attitude and mediocrity. I call them one season wonders – James, Coutinho, Lingard, O. Dembele. If Mikel needs to succeed, he should identify his talent rather then relying on scouts. Till date the entire gunner family stands united with their love and admiration for Carzola or Rosicky. Can Ozil replicate the same?The point is young hungry skilled players give their best at all times, go for them.
