Arsenal title hero Merson: I've spoken to Edu about transfer targets

Arsenal title hero Paul Merson is impressed by their summer market work.

Gabriel Jesus has joined Fabio Vieira and Marquinhos in signing for the Gunners in deals worth a combined £79million as Mikel Arteta's team chase a place in the Champions League.

“They are looking good," he told Sky Sports.

“I saw Edu on Sunday and we had a little chat and I think they've bought well. They're trying to get a couple more players in and I think they could have a good season, Arsenal.

“I think try and get in the top four, and then you know small steps. But I think top four would definitely be the aim this season. I think they bought well.

“They've got young players in the team that have got another season under their belt so I don't think there are too many excuses at Arsenal now there's a good little team there.

“I can't say [which targets Edu was talking to me about]. He was talking to me in confidence. We were at Elton John's!"
