Mikel Arteta has already brought in five new players so far this summer, but says the club remain ‘active’ in the transfer market, and there could be further business before the window closes.
Marquinhos, Matt Turner, Fabio Vieira, Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko have all signed so far, and with the transfer deadline passing on September 1, the boss expects the market to remain vibrant until the last day.
“We are really active, as you can see with incomings and outgoings,” the boss said in his pre-match press conference.
“Everything is still open, it’s a long window, a lot has happened, it’s incredible how much business the clubs have done across the Premier League and it shows how competitive it is, and this season is not going to stop that.
“Players are going to have the need to leave, some others to move and everything is open still.”
