Darren Ambrose has claimed that ‘Chelsea and Manchester United’ should be worried about Arsenal’s recent transfer activity, with seemingly the most active side in the window at present.
The Gunners have completed deals to sign Marquinhos and Fabio Vieira at this early point of the close-season, as well as having deals in place to sign Matt Turner and Gabriel Jesus also, and there is no signs of us slowing down at present.
The likes of Chelsea and Manchester United have only seen outgoings thus far however, with both losing key players in Paul Pogba and Antonio Rudiger already.
Ambrose told TalkSPORT listeners that Arteta may be putting pressure on himself to succeed with another strong transfer window, with expectations certainly going to rise after another transfer splurge.
“I think Arteta is putting pressure on himself again.” he said on The Saturday Session.
“They spent the most last summer. They’re heading, at the moment, to be spending the most this summer depending on what other clubs do.
“I think it’s great for Arteta. He’s now building a squad, his own squad, a big squad. He seems to be the only manager that realises there’ll be five substitutes next season.”
He went on to warn other Premier League clubs, insisting that they should be worried about being left behind in the market by their top-four rivals.
“If you’re Chelsea and Manchester United, where nothing is happening at the moment, just links, you’ve got to be a little bit concerned,” he added.
I’m definitely impressed by the work our club appears to be doing so far this summer, and it can only be positive for us to be successfully landing our targets this early in the window.
At this rate we could have majorly improved our squad of options ahead of the beginning of pre-season, and that can only help our new players to integrate into the squad ahead of the new campaign.
Do you think our rivals will be concerned by our movements thus far?
