Video: Mikel Arteta admits youngsters progress considered when looking at signings

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has admitted that they are taking their youngsters into consideration when looking at the transfer market.

Emile Smith Rowe is named as one who needs to be protected, which could well mean that Houssem Aouar and our other targets are not as high on the wishlist next month.

The boss has already admitted that the club will need to offload some of their squad before looking at signings also, which means the younger players will have time to secure their place in the team initially.

Has Smith Rowe already shown that he is ready to hold onto a regular first-team role?

    Think he did, had chance to start and do so.

    Sounds as if he just realized, took injuries to do do.

    Hope he did get that Willian signing is perfect example of such waist of our youngsters just as Ceballos always picked over Rowe, Willock and even Niles, he spends time defending.

    Maybe Niles has to go to Madrid as Party replacement and shine as talented midfield he is.

    Should be one to fill up for Partey when out, just as Rowe should since Ozil sidelined. Common sense.

    He kept treating youngsters to fill up position anywhere on field. As if they just there to sit or fill up.

    My new year wish is a coach with experience as Tuchel, not Atteta who must go learn his job in lower league and not exposed to work and grow as every coach..
