“It’s not gonna stop” – Mikel Arteta hints at more Arsenal signings despite ‘incredible’ business 

Mikel Arteta has hinted Arsenal could still sign more players this summer despite their ‘incredible’ deal.

The Gunners have added five players to their squad throughout the window, most notably Manchester City duo Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus.

American goalkeeper Matt Turner has also arrived at Emirates Stadium along with FC Porto playmaker Fabio Vieira and teenage Brazilian winger Marquinhos.

Transfermarkt claim the north London club spent over £118m this summer but Arteta refused to rule out any more deals in the near future.

Ahead of his side’s season opener, the Spanish manager said in a press conference (quoted by Football.London):

“We’re very active, as you can see, with ins and outs. Everything is still open, it’s a long window. It’s unbelievable how much business the club has already done. It won’t stop.”

“We’re really active with transfers.” 🔴Mikel Arteta speaks to the media ahead of Arsenal’s Premier League opener against Crystal Palace. 🎙️

Arteta is entering his third full season in charge at the Emirates Stadium after an incredibly disappointing end to last season. The Gunners missed a golden opportunity to get into the top four of the Premier League and instead had to settle for Europa League football.

Mikel Arteta explains why Martin Odegaard has been named Arsenal captain

Odegaard, 23, became Arsenal’s sixth permanent captain since 2018 after impressing in his 18 months at the Emirates Stadium.

Mikel Arteta: “Martin represents the club’s values ​​perfectly. He is respected by the dressing room and admired by the staff. I’m lucky to have someone like him.

After initially joining the Gunners on loan in January 2021, Odegaard made a permanent move to the club from Real Madrid last summer. The midfield maestro scored seven goals and provided five assists in his 40 appearances last season.

The club confirmed this week that the Norway international will now wear the armband in place of the late Alexandre Lacazette. When asked about his decision to name the relatively young midfielder captain, Arteta explained:

“This season we had an opportunity to do it in the way I think it could work. In Martin we have chosen a player who has been with us for 18 months and who perfectly represents the club’s values.

“He’s respected by all the dressing rooms and admired by the staff. I’m glad to have someone like him, he enjoys the responsibilities and he will need some support.”

Led by their new captain, the Gunners take on Crystal Palace on Friday (5 August), kicking off the 2022-23 Premier League season. “It’s not gonna stop” – Mikel Arteta hints at more Arsenal signings despite ‘incredible’ business
