OFFICIAL: Arsenal Chief Confirms Transfers Are On The Way

By on June 14, 2011

Arsenal Chief Exec Ivan Gazidis has promised the clubs supporters that they have identified where things went wrong last season and will do all they can to find the right players to solve the problems.

Both Gazidis and manager Arsene Wenger have stressed it will be a busy summer of transfer activity at the Emirates this year, with several players linked with the exit door and even more linked with a move to the club. Gazidis has confirmed there will be a turnover of players at Arsenal this summer but once again all activity will be done in a sensible manner and within the the clubs financial structure. Speaking at a Q&A with the Arsenal Supporters Trust on Monday, Gazidis said:

“Coming off the end of the season, I share with you a sense of profound disappointment,” he said. “We had a season that promised a great deal and looked like it could turn into a very special one but in the end a familiar story began to tell itself. I understand the feelings that we all felt.

“It is very clear we had some shortcomings and in this close season we are going to see some turnover of players. Some new signings will be coming in and some of our existing squad will be going out. As Arsène has said, it will be a busy close season for the Club.

“But also it is important to recognise that it has not been a disaster. We have a young squad and we don’t want to throw the baby out with the bathwater. The trick will be identify which parts to keep and which parts to turnover. And we will do that within our financial capabilities.”

    O no the internets goin to run out ha..
    samba parker and downing wld not b great signings Samba will b ok just against stoke and that see if he’s gd enough to get past that.. Frimpong, Matuidi, Coquelin > Parker, Miyaichi, Nasri, Oxlaide Chamberlin probs b in front of Downing although he could have a gd partnership with Chamakh..
    Benzema does not want to leave
    Hopefully Theo nd Vela get more chances up front with VP
    Gervinho looks like a good signing,
    Would love Honda to come to Arsenal
