Mikel Arteta plans to sign at least three new players before Euro 2020

Mikel Arteta is looking to move quickly in the next transfer window.

Arsenal is set to complete their transfer business next summer very early as they look to avoid being priced out of deals for their targets, according to the Daily Mail.

The Gunners had limited funds in the last transfer window and Mikel Arteta was only able to bring in two defenders on-loan.

He has, however, been promised that he would be able to spend more when the summer transfer market opens.

The Spaniard wants a new defender, a central creative midfielder and a box to box midfielder, according to the same report.

Arsenal has been linked with moves for a number of players since Arteta has been at the helm and some of those links might just turn out to be true.

Feyenoord teenager Orkun Kokcu is one such recent link and he is reportedly high on Arsenal’s list of targets with the Turkish Under 21 international continuing his development at a fine pace.

The Gunners have already started working behind the scenes to land their top targets for the next campaign and the fans might be in for a surprise.

Arsenal would also be making tough decisions about the future of some of their current players, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, in particular, will be entering the last 12 months of his current deal and Arsenal may be forced to cash in on him.

    I will wait and see what developes Martin, I hope they keep to their word and make these funds available,also I think Auba will leave in the summer and I wouldn’t be surprised if it was with their blessing.

      Every Club has fans who go over the top and Arsenal are no different..I hope our Owner opens his wallet for Arteta to make 3 quality recruits.The problem will of course be unloading those who are surplus to requirements.Easier said than done particularly in the case of Ozil.

    Buy anyone you like, as long as Arsenal fans don’t change their motives and criticism style, the team won’t blend…

    Liverpool has helped to stop the funny critical feelings of people like Ox. Who Arsenal criticed until he left us.. Now he is scoring again…

    Walcott was also offloaded he still plays for Everton even if he didn’t score at all he still get selected and the fans support him…

    I advise any player coming to arsenal now, do not believe u are better than the ones there, the fans will prove it to u when u get in…

    I hope we become like Liverpool fans singing hymns for our team every day even if no league title for 30years….

      Before klopp Liverpool were the biggest moaning fans on the planet, Benitez out, Rogers out and every manager they had. The radio shows were blocked with complaining Liverpool fans. You must have a very short memory or not watch the telly or listen to radio.

    Good luck on that one Mikel, we need to off load before we can buy, unless we already know and have agreed to sell players to certain teams all ready to fund it..

    CB – Maghalles or Matvyienko (let’s face it Upamencano ain’t coming to a non CL team)
    CM – Doucoure (doubt Partey or Soumare will come to us now, Watford get relegated)
    CM/AM – Szobozsai (he is my #1 target, gonna be a star)
