We made six signings, all aged 23 or under, during a busy transfer window for the club this summer.
Mikel Arteta is delighted to have strengthened his squad in this way, and believes all the new additions will complement the players he already had at his disposal.
"[They all have] different experiences, some had experience in the league, so me abroad, and some have been coached in other ways, but they are players we have followed for a long time that we knew could fit in the model we are trying to implement at the club. So we are pleased," he told Arsenal Media.
"It was a really complicated market. We had a lot of things to do, I think we had 16 or 17 transactions in total, which is a lot.
"You have to blend them all together, some of them haven't even trained with us yet because they have still to come in the next week or so. We have a good group, they will help them to adapt as quick as possible and get them to work with us and see when we can integrate all together.
"The club has made a big effort, we had support from the owners to try to do it and we had to recruit in the terms that we could, and I'm very pleased.”
