Though there hasn’t appeared to have been too much in the way of incoming transfer action at the Emirates Stadium, Mikel Arteta could be close to making a much-needed signing for Arsenal.
The improvement required from the north Londoners in the 2021/22 Premier League season is obvious, and just how well the Gunners do will depend on the squad that Arteta can mould together during the close season.
The Spaniard doesn’t have too long, mind, with the new English top-flight campaign beginning in earnest in just a few short weeks time.
