Arsenal will be looking to make some transfers when the transfer window opens, according to Technical Director Edu.
The club have made their worst start to a season for 45 years, and have just lost four successive home games in the League for the first time since 1959.
With big question marks over the future of manager Mikel Arteta, both CDEO Vinai Venkateshan and now Edu have come out in support of him, although this does not appear to the dreaded “vote of confidence” that normally heralds a managerial sacking.
Instead Edu says “I can see the future, see where we go, the way we’re building things, starting to see it on a daily basis. So, the way we work, the way we train, the way we behave internally, if you see the quality of the work, if you see the quality of the people, if you see properly what’s happening here on a daily basis, it’s nothing to compare with the results.”
Edu has confirmed that the club does intend to be active when the January window opens, but that bringing in new players will not solve all the club’s ills, and it is down to the existing personnel at the club to improve as well.
Arsenal take on Southampton at the Emirates on Wednesday in what may be another crunch game for Arteta.
