There will be more transfer business for Arsenal in this window claims reporter

Sky Sports’ Dharmesh Sheth has discussed Arsenal’s transfer window and claims that the Gunners are set to do even more business before the transfer window closes.

There has been several incomings and outgoings at the club over the last year and more are expected.

They have also signed some of their players on to a new deal including the likes of Emile Smith Rowe.

They have also completed the transfer of Albert Sambi Lokonga and Nuno Tavares ahead of next season.

Both players will make them a stronger squad and more are expected to join them as Mikel Arteta attempts to guide the Gunners back into the top four.

Sheth claims that as busy as Arsenal has been, they are just getting started and he backs them to do even more business before this window closes.

He told Sky Sports: “If you look at what’s happened in the past few months, Bukayo Saka has signed a new long-term contract, Emile Smith Rowe has signed a new long-term contract until 2026, Kieran Tierney as well recently signed a new long-term contract.

“They’ve backed [Mikel Arteta] in the transfer market so far in this transfer window. In have come Nuno Tavares from Benfica, Albert Sambi Lokonga has signed from Anderlecht, Ben White for £50m is incoming – he’s due to take his medical next week.

“So I think they have backed him, and it’s not over as far as this transfer window is concerned. I think Arsenal will prove to be one of the busiest if not the busiest club in this transfer window.”

The likes of Manuel Locatelli and Ben White have been linked with moving to the Emirates and the Englishman might become the next star that they would sign.

    SHETH HAS ACTUALLY SAID NOTHING OF SUBSTANCE AT ALL. HAS HE!
    Any Gooner knows our business is not finished yet , and yet this “fortune teller” now tells us what we all already know! Not impressed and no reason for an article on a bloke who has said NOTHING at all.

    NO ACTUAL NAMES, NO RUMOURS EVEN, JUST A STATEMENT OF THE BL..DING OBVIOUS.

  2. Durand says:

    Obvious we will do more business as 2 backups and White hardly move the needle off 8th place.

    Need a solid midfielder who can have an instant impact; preferably one who can score or at the very least help link up the attack.

    Preferably not Neves as he offers nothing different from Xhaka.

      No doubt Durand…imagine trying to sell this window to the informed fan…that said, there’s a group on JA trying desperately to equate this window to a rebirth of sorts…be careful as the gaslighting gang are using all forms of tactics to quiet those who dare to critique the present ongoings or lack thereof…fact remains if we don’t bring in at least one creative midfielder of some note, we’re no farther ahead than we were at year’s end…I still have a funny feeling that we might see Mr. White at RB, which would raise some serious eyebrows, I would think…take care and beware of the wolf in sheep’s clothing

      1. Durand says:

        I try to remain consistent in terms of criticizing our manager. Odd how some move the goalposts when it comes to Arteta.

        Emery would never have survived 2 8th place finishes; in fact after missing 4th by 1 point he was sacked for stalling in 8th in December.

        Yet with money spent, more control than Emery had he still finished 8th; yet some excuse this.

            Dan, glad you now see how unfair the criticism of Emery was given the points raised by Durand. The absense of crowds in stadiums has helped Arteta last season. The amount of support in the transfer market will hopefully give Arteta plenty to work with this season. Top class ACM and DM are still required.

        2. R says:

          Emery took the club from Wenger and lost the dressing room after just a year and a half – and he was sacked. Some digits doesn’t tell the whole picture without the context. Let’s not forget that Arteta inherited a mess. Yes he is yet to prove himself or fail miserably if he doesn’t deliver this season, but up until now he is doing so much more than Emery. I too lost patience with Arteta when we lost the Europa league semi final, but after that the team started winning cosistently. Now he is buying new players that he believe he needs, he will have a proper pre-season, and the people will be back to the stadiums to help Arsenal especially at home + he will have all the time to train since we are missing European football. So he has all the prerequisites needed to succeed. If he doesn’t deliver now, he will have to go. But I still think until December it is too early to judge him properly.

          Also don’t forget that the guy is an Arsenal fan in his bones, so there is no doubt about his passion and desire, only if his ability can match them.

          1. Ozziegunner says:

            R, yes Emery took over from Wenger, who had been at Arsenal for a long and generally successful period, which was a big ask for any incoming head coach/manager. Why did Emery “lose the dressing room”? Maybe it said more about some players and their rejection of discipline and the lack of support to the “head coach” by the Board and senior management. It should be noted that Arteta is now manager, is given a significant say in signings (something Emery never had) and has overseen a clear out of the disruptive elements, at great financial cost to the Club.
            Emery could only dream of the support that Arteta has been given. Hopefully Arteta can deliver this season, because so far based on results he has not bettered Emery, with all the difficulties he was subjected to.

    What a non news story this is. Everyone knows that we are looking to sign a goalkeeper, We’re trying for Neves, would like to add Locatelli, although the chances are remote. We’re also looking Max Aarons as a replacement for Bellers.

  4. 03 gooner says:

    Whilst trying to remain optimistic, I am getting slightly concerned with the next season closing in, that we haven’t made any signings that improves our starting X1 we need a RB DM AM(as competition for Smith Rowe) plus a backup GK and possibly a ST. Trying to be realistic I would say Johnstone-£10m Aarons-£25m Bissouma-£35m Aoaur-£25m

    Leno
    Aarons White Gabriel Tierney
    Bissouma Partey
    Smith Rowe/Aouar
    Pepe Auba Saka

    Subs: Johnstone Cedric Chambers Holding Mari Tavares Lokonga Elneny Martinelli Balogan Laca

  5. gunnerforlife says:

    Nothing new about what the reporter in the article is saying, something we all know. The point is we need Bissouma, Madison/Aouar, Aarons and Sam Johnstone. This will complete our business and make us ready to go for the next season with optimism.

    1. Ozziegunner says:

      👍

  6. Grandad says:

    Unless we can unload the likes of Xhaka, Bellerin, Torreria, and Nketiah orLaca our options will be very limited.In terms of priority upgrading our midfield is a must.
