Arsenal head of football Raul Sanllehi says club has transfer ammunition
Arsenal head of football Raul Sanllehi believes that the club packs enough transfer ammunition to convince their transfer targets to move into the Emirates. In the wake of the departures of Aaron Ramsey, Danny Welbeck and Petr Cech, Arsenal are looking to rebuild, and Sanllehi has provided some insight into the club's transfer activities.
“What I can tell you is that we have identified very clearly and unanimously with our head coach and technical people, we know what we want to prioritise and we’re very clear on what our priorities are,”
“We’re already in the market and we’re already talking with the people that can help us to cover those positions and I feel quite strong. It’s going well and the image that Arsenal has in the football world is very strong.
“I do believe that we have a very good plan to cover those positions to be much stronger next year, to deliver the success that we’re all hoping for.”
