Going into transfer deadline day, Arsenal chief Edu and manager Mikel Arteta had reached an agreement.
After three games, Arsenal is at the bottom of the Premier League table.
Arsenal have had their worst start to a season in 67 years, having failed to win any of their first three Premier League games. After a string of underwhelming performances, they have yet to score this season and are rooted to the bottom of the standings.
The pressure on boss Mikel Arteta is increasing, and only time will tell if he is able to turn the situation around.
Arteta will have to make due with what he has until January when the summer transfer season ends at 11 p.m. on Tuesday.
And, according to football.london, Arteta and Arsenal’s technical director Edu agree that the Gunners need to reinforce before the summer transfer window closes.
Arsenal’s season got off to the worst possible start on the opening night of the season, losing 2-0 to Premier League newcomers Brentford.
Chelsea then bullied Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, resulting in a 2-0 defeat for the Gunners, with Romelu Lukaku scoring on his return to the Premier League.
And their agony was compounded on Saturday when Manchester City put them to the sword, leaving them rooted to the bottom of the table.
The Gunners were behind 2-0 after only 12 minutes at the Etihad Stadium, and their afternoon was made worse when midfield guardian Granit Xhaka was sent off before half-time.
Arsenal’s weakness was plainly shown as City added two more goals before the break and two more in the second half.
Arsenal are in a perilous position heading into the international break, and there will be no margin for error when they face Norwich City in their next match.
This summer, the north London club has already spent a lot of money to try to fix their flaws.
Ben White, a centre-back from Brighton, came for £50 million, while Martin Odegaard, a midfielder from Real Madrid, joined for £30 million.
Arsenal spent another £30 million on Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, as well as about £15 million for Anderlecht’s Albert Sambi Lokonga and £6.8 million on Benfica’s Nuno Tavares.
This summer, Arteta’s side has been connected with a slew of additional players as they attempt to reclaim their former glory.
