Arsenal are now in a great position after building momentum on the pitch with Mikel Arteta’s ideas, with the Spaniard instilling newfound harmony in the group. The results have been incredible with a big win over Fulham in the Premier League season opener backing up FA Cup final and Community Shield victories.
The Spaniard wants more talent though, especially in midfield, with funds short and sales likely to help him land his No 1 target: Thomas Partey of Atletico Madrid. The attack now has incredible depth, with Bukayo Saka and Nicolas Pepe on the bench against Fulham as new signing Willian lined up with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.
There is more to come before the deadline, both in and out: Emi Martinez will join Aston Villa, while Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Hector Bellerin and Sead Kolasinac also have uncertain futures. Houssem Aouar continues to be linked, with the Lyon star likely the dream signing at this stage.
