Arsenal are looking geared up to have a very busy and exciting window as they look to go one step further this upcoming season and clinch a spot in the Champions League – something they haven’t done since the 2015/16 campaign.
The Gunners are reportedly in talks to sign Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City as well as fellow Brazil international Raphinha, which only emphasises the fact that Arsenal see Arteta as the right man to lead them into a brighter future after handing him over £100m to spend last summer.
Sheth has confirmed that Arsenal are ready and looking to back Arteta financially once again in the transfer market.
He said: “I think one thing you can be sure of is that Mikel Arteta will be backed once more in this transfer window. If you go back to last summer, no club in Europe spent more than Arsenal last summer.
Will Arsenal finish in the top four this season?
“I know Man City spent £100m on Jack Grealish, Chelsea spent all of that money on Romelu Lukaku, but in total, Arsenal spent in excess of £140m – and this is £140m given to a manager who was only in the three domestic cup competitions.
“They weren’t in European competition and yet, they still backed Arteta. He is the long-term project at Arsenal, let’s not make any bones about that.”
TIF Thoughts on Arsenal’s transfer window…
While some Arsenal fans may still not be over how their season ended by relinquishing a strong grip on a place in the Champions League for this upcoming season, they will surely be excited by the calibre of players they are looking to bring in.
If the Gunners can sign a serial winner in Jesus, who boasts a solid record in the final third with 141 goal involvements in 236 appearances for Man City, it could instantly make them a much more dangerous team going forward, which is required as they failed to score in two out of their final three league games which ultimately cost them a spot in the top four.
