Arsenal Transfer News

Based in Holloway, London, Arsenal FC is one of the most decorated football clubs in the Premier League with a tally of 13 First Division and Premier League titles and 12 FA Cups and is among the top big six clubs of the Premier league. The club plays its home matches at the Emirates Stadium having shifted from Highbury in July 2006. The Gunners went through a transitional phase after the exit of one of their iconic manager Arsene Wenger.

Arsenal hired Spanish coach Unai Emery as Wenger's successor hoping that the former PSG manager would lead the club to a new era. However, after 18 months Gunners decided to fire Emery as he wasn'y able to deliver according to the standards that the club demanded. Former Arsenal captian Mikel Arteta was the next appointment and the Spaniard is still the manager at the club. Arteta has brought a huge change in the cultural and stratigical aspects of the Gunners and the fans have already bought his plans.


Arsenal and their fans have now hit a great chord after long years of uneasiness and most of the credit goes to Arteta's efforts. The Gunners are flying in the 2022-23 Premier League season as they are the table toppers after playing 10 matches. There has been a lot of effort put into bringing the drastic changes that have occured at Arsenal and one of the major tweek that has brought enormous difference is the change in transfer policy.

Under Arteta, Arsenal have made an investment of more than £300 millions in signings and majority of them has brought in great value to the club. The Gunners have shifted to signing more young talents with great potential who could thrive under the immense pressure of playing in the Premier League.
