Mikel Arteta has called on Arsenal to make a major overhaul in the transfer market as the manager under the pressure is confident he will continue to be given the time and funds to lift the giants from slumber.
Next season, the Gunners are expected to go through a campaign without European competition for the first time since 1995-96 as they are ranked 10th in the English Premier League (EPL) this season.
The London side were eliminated by Villarreal, led by former manager Unai Emery, in the Europa League semi -finals on Friday, increasing pressure on Arteta, who was appointed to replace him in 2019.
However, Arteta is expected to receive the support of owner, Kroenke, as Arsenal prepare to host West Brom, early tomorrow morning.
“This team needs to be overhauled,” he said.
“Already a lot of changes were made last December, something that hasn’t been done in years and it proves where our real level is.
“We will make changes and the owners will support it.”
