Arteta remains tight-lipped on transfer movements

Arsenal have been enjoying themselves in the transfer window recently, perhaps as much as those who continue to use the best available UK casino sites for all of their wagering needs this summer.

Indeed, the Gunners have been able to bolster their squad with significant reinforcements and new stars that are likely to lead the team out as they look to continue to improve and get back to where we all feel we belong: the UEFA Champions League.

The club has already signed Brazilian duo Marquinhos and Gabriel Jesus, American goalkeeper Matt Turner and Portuguese midfielder Fabio Vieira, while a move for Manchester City star Oleksandr Zinchenko looks close to being completed.

We would have to say it has been a solid window so far, and while we would want to see more faces arrive at the Emirates Stadium before the window closes, it seems Mikel Arteta is keeping a little tight-lipped about what the future plans for recruits may be.

Speaking about it and quoted by The Metro, the Arsenal boss said: “We’ve been trying to [sign players earlier] and we have two recruitments already.

“Until the end of the market we will keep trying to improve the squad and there are so many parties involved and sometimes things are not as quick as you want.”

“There is no update with anybody and when there are updates we will let you know. We’re looking at different options in different positions and we’ll give you an update when we have it.”

Of course, the final part of the conversation was in regard to the possibility of having Zinchenko signing on the dotted line, with it rumoured a deal worth around £30 million could be nearing completion by transfer guru Fabrizio Romano as the journalist has recently provided his own update regarding the switch, which is incredibly positive.

If he does arrive at the Emirates Stadium, he will link up and quickly reunite with his former coach, as well as Gabriel Jesus; a player who is enjoying himself at the club and is already making a big impression on the squad.

‘He has a smile on his face and he feels important,’ Arteta said. ‘He’s bringing a special energy to the group and big experience.’

Jesus said: ‘I’m really happy to be here, the way everyone welcomed me was amazing. I’m so happy to be part of this group.’
