Quick Bit: After narrowly missing out on Champions League qualification at the end of a promising Premier League season, Mikel Arteta is aiming to boost Arsenal’s squad for a renewed push in the 2022/23 campaign.
Two defeats in their final three Premier League games of 2021/22 meant Arsenal fell short of Champions League qualification, and it remains to be seen how much dropping down to the Europa League will cost them in the transfer market.
That hasn’t kept the Gunners from being one of the busiest teams in the early weeks of the summer transfer window.
The forward position will be one of the most intriguing to watch after Alexandre Lacazette departed and Eddie Nketiah agreed to a new contract. The statement signing of Gabriel Jesus for ?45 million from Manchester City was finally confirmed on July 4.
Manager Mikel Arteta signed a new contract during the final weeks of the season and is busy reinforcing his squad in a bid to ensure the progress that earned them fifth spot is not lost in 2022/23.
