Arteta justifies lack of transfer activity

Arsenal have been heavily criticised for their own supporters for their lack of incoming business in January.

Instead, the transfer window saw six members of the first team squad leave, either permanently or on loan, and, with no additions, numbers are severely diminished for the rest of the season, especially if there are any major injuries or suspensions.

However, the lack of transfers has been  Mikel Arteta attributed  by the manager to the new player policy recruitment that puts more emphasis on the due diligence process, ensuring the new players brought in  are the right fit form the club.

Given that January tends to be a seller’s market, the decision was taken to wait for the summer to bring in the new centre-forward, midfield  and right back that have been identified a priorities.

That not only gives them more time, but it is also believed there will be more room for negotiation when it comes ot price.
