Arsenal need to bring in some more experienced players in the summer transfer season, according to Mikel Arteta.
In recent days, the Gunners completed the signings of full-back Nuno Tavares and midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga, kicking off their recruitment push ahead of the new season.
The north London club is also rumored to be close to concluding a deal to sign Brighton & Hove Albion defender Ben White.
Arsenal are looking to add to their squad in order to put together a team capable of competing in the Premier League’s top four next season.
Arsenal hasn’t won the Premier League since 2004, and last season they ended ninth and without a trophy.
“The boy has already been extremely impressive,” Arteta remarked of Nuno Tavares’ signing. I believe he fits the bill for what we’re attempting to do here.”
When asked if Arsenal fans should expect a similar profile from the remaining summer arrivals, he answered, “It is one of the profiles, but we also need a nice mixture.”
“In the team, we need some senior players with different styles of leadership, different traits, and people who complement one other.
“At the end of the day, it comes down to team togetherness, so we need a cohesive squad that can develop and adapt, that gives different traits to change games and protect games when we need to, and that is what we are trying to build.”
