The Gunners have already completed two transfers
Arsenal endured an underwhelming season as they failed to win any silverware in Arsene Wenger’s final campaign. They finished 6th in the Premier League and will miss the Champions League next season.
Unai Emery has been appointed as the new manager of the Gunners and is charged with the task of returning the club to the European elite while challenging for major honours.
The Spaniard has already brought in goalkeeper Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen and Stephan Lichtsteiner from Juventus. New head of recruitment Sven Mislintat in overdrive seeking out buys.
Club’s chief executive Ivan Gazidis has assured that the Premier League giants will recruit more players before the transfer window closes in August.
“We have brought in a new head of recruitment in Sven Mislintat and alongside him is Huss Fahmy who has been involved with negotiating a lot of our player contracts and also we have Raul Sanllehi who joins us from Barcelona,” Gazidis told as quoted by Sportsmole.
“So we really have a collective effort now, in terms of how we identify players and then how we take forward our interest and of course Unai is a huge part of that as well. This is now a different way of doing things, one with a very, very accomplished team of professionals who we have spent time bedding into the club.
“Unai has been in the thick of that process in terms of what we need in the squad, we’ve signed two new players so far this summer and there will be more to come.”
Arsenal have already agreed transfer fee with Borussia Dortmund for defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos and it is believed they are close to the signing of Sampdoria midfielder Lucas Torreira.
