Arteta wants experienced trio

Arsenal boss wants three players including Barcelona star

03 August 2020 - 20:43

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is reportedly aiming to add more experience into the first-team squad ahead of next season.

  • Chelsea identify alternative target to Declan Rice?
  • Manchester United agree terms with £36.7m-rated star

  • The Spaniard took charge of the Gunners in late December and he was able to change the work ethic of the players on the field.

    While the Gunners only finished eighth on the league table, they ended the season on a high by winning another FA Cup title.

    According to The Times, Arteta is now keen on adding experienced faces to his squad, who can work alongside the talented young players.

    Chelsea's Willian is one of the prime targets for the Spaniard alongside Atletico Madrid's Thomas Partey and Barcelona's Philippe Coutinho.

    Willian is set to be available on a free transfer in the coming days. Coutinho, on the other hand, has been tipped to join his compatriot at the Emirates on loan.

    The Gunners have already failed with a player-plus-cash bid for Partey and they are expected to come up with a renewed offer in the coming weeks.

    The Ghanaian has a £45m release clause on his Atleti contract.
