Mikel Arteta reveals Arsenal transfer plan amid Ivan Toney question

Mikel Arteta have revealed that Arsenal have already started planning for their transfer business this coming summer.

The Gunners have been outstanding offensively in recent times and are on a run of 31 goals in their past seven matches. Many, including club record signing Declan Rice feel this has proved that calls to sign a striker in January were overblown.

“I think that was a narrative that we weren’t creating chances, that we needed a No.9, but in all honesty, we have been playing like this all year,” he told reporters on Monday night after Arsenal’s 6-0 win over Sheffield United. “All season we have been playing really well. Obviously the goals weren’t as free flowing as they are now, but that was never a problem that we needed a No.9 – because we have got Gabi [Jesus], we have got Kai [Havertz], we have got Eddie [Nketiah] and we have got Leo [Trossard], who can play as a false nine. Goals are going to come.

So I don’t think that has ever been a big problem. I think now we are really in our groove and we are looking really threatening in front of goal.

Still though the Gunners are expected to strengthen in the attacking positions this summer. Nico Williams and Pedro Neto are among the targets football.london understands they are looking at, and speaking ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash with Brentford, Arteta revealed that his side have already begun preparations for what is expected to be a busy window.
