Video: Mikel Arteta states that recent performances will affect transfer strategy

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has confirmed that his players’ recent performances will play a role in his strategy going into the transfer window.

The likes of Emile Smith Rowe and Gabriel Martinelli have been influential in our results this week, with the pair working hard an showing real character, and both are definitely showing that they deserve to be playing regularly.

We will certainly need more number in midfield to help creating, but ESR needs to be considered when looking into how to strengthen next month.

He also refuses to comment on Isco being amongst our targets…

  1. can we win back the same number of games we lost.
    this will require real character and conviction from our players. Real fishermen can’t go fishing five times without a catch, they would definitely change their methods.
    Is Mr Aubameyang doing this deliberately or what????? just asking why he’s running up and down

  2. That’s not what he said, in fact it’s the exact opposite…he spoke specifically about the fact that the last two positive results wouldn’t impact their strategy for the upcoming window…this seems to just be preying on the legitimate fears of fans who, in past years, were concerned that if we eked out a few positive results around the winter window that the club would wrongly use that as an excuse for not conducting any meaningful transfer business…it’s always sad when you “hope” for poor results to force ownerships hands, as it suggests that the club is so frugal and short-sighted that they will stand pat unless things are spiraling out of control…of course we all remember Wenger’s utter disdain for the January window, which certainly didn’t help matters…minus the Auba deal, I can remember dreading this window for the better part of 15 years…I can only hope things are different this year

  3. Regardless of what was said, with Martinelli and ESR gaining in match fitness and confidence I think the next transfer window should be used to ship out certain players if at all possible.I thought Bellerin did well yesterday but if Barca come calling, I am pretty sure Arteta would not be averse to selling him for say 20m.In the summer window I would be looking for an athletic ,quality partner for Partey as neither Elneny nor Chaka have the pace and energy to drive us forward.Bissouma is undoubtedly a candidate to consider particularly as Arteta seems reluctant to give AMN an opportunity in central midfield.With Ozil and others off the wage bill there may be scope for 2/3 additions in the Summer.
