Arsenal boss Unai Emery says he is using a patient approach in the transfer market as he continues to try and sign four new players.
The Gunners fans continue to worry about their upcoming campaign after their side missed out on the Champions League last season. Arsenal will not play in Europe’s elite competition for the third successive campaign and Emery has struggled to attract a number of big names as a result.
Only 18-year-old Gabriel Martinelli has moved to the Emirates Stadium but Arsenal continue to be linked with William Saliba, Dani Ceballos, Kieran Tierney and Wilfried Zaha. Arsenal are thought to be struggling in their pursuit of Tierney and Zaha after having bids rejected by both Celtic and Crystal Palace respectively.
Despite the struggles, Emery says he is not panicking and believes Arsenal will finalise some important deals in the coming months. “Really I am with patience because we want to choose the best solution,” he said.
“Some players are very expensive and we are waiting for this possibility. “We don’t want now to go to the second line of players. We are waiting. We have very good players. We have very good young players. We are aware also that we need to improve some players in this squad.
“I want to sign one, two, three or four players only if we can be sure they are coming to improve our team. “There are a lot of names. The club is working, Edu is very close to me and Raul. We speak every day.”
Arsenal will start the campaign against Newcastle United on August 11 and punters can back them to secure a top-four finish at odds of 2.15.
