Arsenal prepare for a ‘great summer’ in the transfer market after Mikel Arteta’s new contract

A

rsenal technical director Edu believes it was essential to tie manager Mikel Arteta down to a new contract ahead of another “big summer” for the club in the transfer market.

Arteta has signed a new contract which runs until the end of the 2024-25 season. Arsenal are closing in on a Champions League return and sit fourth in the Premier League with four games to go, two points clear of Tottenham in fifth.

Finishing in the top four will impact Arteta’s transfer budget this summer, but the club are keen to back him after spending almost £150m last year.

Arsenal have a clear plan for the next transfer window, which includes signing at least one striker.

And technical director Edu feels it’s essential that Arteta has committed to his future as target talks take place over the coming weeks and months.

“There are a lot of reasons why,” said Edu, when asked why Arsenal are tying Arteta down to a new contract now.

“Firstly we can put our plan in place, and secondly it’s important to show everyone where we want to go as a club.

“We’re going to face a big summer again, it’s important to have our manager here because people ask us ‘what about his future? And the team? This season, how are we going? we play ?’

“Then we can prove that we continue with this manager and continue to play as we are. So that helps us a lot.

“I think the timing will be perfect, I really believe the message will be a big boost for everyone. To the fans, to the club, to the players, to Mikel. I think it will be great and I can’t wait to get there. be.
