Manager Mikel Arteta claims that Arsenal needs to sign new players, if they want to win the Premier League title next season.

Arsenal came very close to winning the Premier League title last season. Arteta is now planning to rebuild his squad to maintain their good rhythm.

Gunners have already linked with a move for West Ham midfielder Declan Rice, as they’ve already agreed personal terms with the player. The signing of Kai Havertz will be officially announced very soon by the club officials.

According to BBC sports, Mikel Arteta have admitted that the team needs sign new players to match with other teams in the Premier League. He said:-

“Next season is going to be the toughest league in Premier League history.

“Why? It already was last year. I’ve been here [England] for 22 years and I’ve never seen a competitive level like that. So much quality, so much organisation, so many resources, so many good coaches.

“That’s the level and to win the Premier League you have to be the best. That’s why you have to strengthen.”

Arsenal topped the league table for most of the season but fell short due to injuries to the likes of William Saliba and Takehiro Tomiyasu. Arteta further stated:-

“To this day, it still hurts me deep inside not to have won the Premier League after 10 months of fighting with City.

“There were three or four injuries to important players and from then on, everything got complicated. When we had the full team, we were consistent. As soon as problems came, it wasn’t enough for us.

“Our opponent was the best team in the world, the best squad in the world

“We had no choice but to accept it and shake hands with the champion.”
