With less than 48 hours remaining in the summer transfer window, Arsenal’s sporting director Edu Gaspar has provided an update on the club’s plans. Gaspar expressed his satisfaction with the club’s proactive approach at the beginning of the window, highlighting the signings of Kai Havertz, Jurrien Timber, Declan Rice, and David Raya.

“As everyone saw, we made a strong strategy to be very proactive at the beginning of the transfer window & I think we did it. Now we are talking about trying to balance the squad a little bit better.” Edu Gaspar told TNT SPORTS.

The Gunners made a statement with the acquisition of Havertz from Chelsea for a fee of £65 million. The 24-year-old midfielder is highly regarded for his technical ability and versatility, and his addition adds significant quality to Arsenal’s midfield options.

In addition to Havertz, Arsenal secured the services of 22-year-old defender Jurrien Timber from Ajax. The Dutchman is considered a promising talent and his signing strengthens the Gunners’ defensive options.

One of the marquee signings of the window was the arrival of Declan Rice from West Ham for a staggering fee of £105 million. The 24-year-old midfielder is known for his composure on the ball and defensive prowess, and his presence will undoubtedly bolster Arsenal’s midfield.

Completing their summer business, Arsenal brought in goalkeeper David Raya from Brentford on a loan deal with an option to buy. The 27-year-old shot-stopper provides competition and cover for first-choice goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale.

Despite their strong transfer activity, Gaspar emphasized that Arsenal are still looking to balance their squad further. The club remains in talks with other clubs as they aim to make additional signings before the window closes.

On the pitch, Arsenal have started the Premier League season positively, currently sitting in fifth position after three games. They have recorded two wins and one draw, showcasing early signs of improvement under manager Mikel Arteta.

Next up for the Gunners is a highly anticipated clash against Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium. This fixture will provide a stern test for Arsenal as they look to continue their strong start to the season and build momentum.

As the transfer window nears its closure, Arsenal fans can be excited about the club’s ambitions and the quality of players brought in. With a strong squad and an experienced manager at the helm, the Gunners will be aiming for a successful season both domestically and in European competitions.

I am a very stubborn person who is always very argumentative in football discussions but I always win. I like writing about transfer news most.
