Arsenal boss Arteta targeting four major summer signings

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is targeting four major signings this summer.

The Sun says Arteta is ready to allow promising youngsters such as Charlie Patino, Miguel Azeez and Omari Hutchinson the chance to cut their teeth in the Europa League group games.

But he still wants to make four top quality signings this summer as he looks for two strikers, a central midfielder and possibly another full-back.

Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus and Roma's Tammy Abraham are his main targets up front while Leicester's Youri Tielemans and Wolves playmaker Ruben Neves head the list of potential midfield recruits.

Arteta said: “When you look at what we have on the pitch now and what we had ten or 20 years ago, you can see where this club has to go.

“We have squeezed the lemon to the very last drop to reach this point and we know what we need to do to take the club to the next level.

“The Europa League requires a much larger squad because the amount of games is much bigger."
