Video: Arteta reiterates Arsenal policy on youth and their responsibilities

Mikel Arteta talks up the development of his younger players, as Arsenal rely on youth quite heavily at present.

The Gunners started the last match with Gabriel Martinelli, Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka in behind the striker, and they were a joy to watch, but the manager insists he still needs his senior players to guide them on their path.

Some of youngsters are showing maturity beyond their years however, and will be key to our season and our future going forwards.

Is the younger players’ hunger lifting our side at present?

    A good mix of energetic young talent and experienced committed older players is key.
    The worrying thing is the rumour we are going for Eriksen. Surely there are better playmakers out there.

      Completely agree. At his best I wouldn’t be against Eriksen, but recent history should tell us to be weary of this kind of signing. Also I really believe the club should be looking to reduce the wage bill – we don’t need to be spending so much on wages and it creates all manner of problems with future recruitment future contracts for current players.

      1. Davi says:

        (that is to say, I don’t think Eriksen would join for a smaller wage)

    The best we could do as a club is to go all-in for Bissouma and Grealish and we would probably be set in the Midfield and definitely a top side.
    Even if Grealish costs 100 mio. He is worth every pound and we should try to sell as many players as needed to fund him.. The liverpool way is surely the best way buy a lot of EPL players who are adapted to the league and if 1-2 players are the best option break the bank for them, if Grealish would come is another question but i think he has a good connection to saka and arsenal
