Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has said last days of the transfer window is crucial for the club’s 2020-2021 season.
However, a host of players from the Arsenal squad looks like to be departing, as reports suggests German side Bayer Leverkusen are interested for Sead Kolasinac, Uruguayan international Lucas Torreira and French midfielder Matteo Guendouzi all looks set to be leaving the Emirates.
According to the Gunners boss, “It is a crucial moment, It defines the people, players, the balance and quality you’re probably going to have for the rest of the season.
“We need to make some decisions in the next three days. Everything has been delayed so much, not only for us but every team.
“We will try to make the best possible decisions and at the end, whatever we have, we go for it fully convinced and prepared to have a good season.”
Reacting to a question if he’d be happy with the squad he has before the transfer window shuts at 11pm on Monday, the Spanish manager said;
“It is because we can’t do more,” he said when asked what happens if no new players come in.
“We are trying our maximum. We are maximising our resources, with full support from the owners as well with what we are trying to achieve. It is whether we can do it or not.
“I am very happy because the way we are acting and the way we are approaching and the way we are doing the process around the market, around the squad, the communication and link we have between myself, Edu, the board and the ownership is really good.
“I am really satisfied. I know that we are all trying our best to improve the team and trying to take the direction to achieve the goals that we want.
“After to achieve it or not, sometimes in a deal a lot of things can happen. You have three or four parties that have to be involved, but we are trying our best.
“I am really happy the way this link and communication is flowing at the moment.”
