ikel Arteta does not expect Arsenal to chase any further signings before the end of the transfer window.
Arsenal are due to tie up the deal to bring goalkeeper David Raya to the Emirates Stadium from Brentford, but as things stand that will be the Gunners’ final summer recruit.
Declan Rice tops the list of north London arrivals in this window, and the £105million man is due for his Premier League debut in tomorrow’s clash against Nottingham Forest.
Germany forward Kai Havertz has arrived from Chelsea, while left-back Jurrien Timber has made the switch from Ajax, and unless any major changes occur at the Emirates, Raya could well be the last face through the door this month.
Arteta’s happiness with his squad will only further underscore the belief in north London that another strong campaign lies in store.
Asked if Arsenal will add any more new recruits in this window, Arteta replied: “At the moment we’re not planning to do anything. But the window is very unpredictable.
“Things can happen, probably things that we don’t wish, but at the moment we are very happy with what we’ve got.”
Arsenal lost 1-0 at Forest in late May as Manchester City completed their surge to the Premier League title.
Arteta has warned his Gunners players not to underestimate Forest in any capacity on Saturday, despite the feel-good factor engendered by his side’s Community Shield penalty shoot-out win.
“They did it in a very clever way and on the day they deserved to get the points,” said Arteta of that Forest loss.
“Tomorrow we’re going to have to play better and deserve it more. They’re a team who are extremely well-organised and what they did last season, especially with the way they started and how they adapted to the league is remarkable.”
