“We Make New Plans”Arsenal Chief Insisted
Arsenal technical director Edu has absolutely admitted his club needs to prioritise the signing of a creative midfielder after their poor beginning to the season.
Edu has made it clear he believes Arsenal don’t currently have anyone capable like that in their squad, which perhaps suggests he backs and support the decision of manager Mikel Arteta to axe Mesut Ozil this season.For all Ozil’s flaws, some fans will feel the German playmaker has been left out this season and that he could probably still add some spark to Arteta’s struggling side.
It appears more likely, however, that Edu will give a try to sign a similar style of player for Arteta in upcoming transfer windows after his quotes at an Arsenal fans’ forum, as quoted by the Metro.
Talking about potential Arsenal transfers at the event, the Brazilian said: “It’s quite clear what we need.
“We need a player that will fulfill the vision of the club with creativity in the middle, we don’t have that in the squad right now. ”Arsenal fans will hope this means the club is active in January, with signings surely needed to turn this awful season around.
Edu also moved to deny speculation of trouble behind the scenes, insisting Arteta has the backing of the players and the board.
He said: “Every single club has problems. The stories about a split between the players and Arteta are not true. Stories about players not believing and not trusting Mikel are not true.arteta could fix this present situation, he just needs time to think and to put things in the proper place where they are meant to be.
arteta needs all teammates to join and put hands on deck and to remain focus,avoid distraction from any angle it coming from.let remain determined I need each every one of you on my side to bring success to the club.
