Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta said he took advantage of the winter break to start planning potential summer transfers, saying he had reflected during that time on what the team needed to improve.
«I wanted to take a few days off because the players have faced a lot in the last few months. After that, I wanted to reflect on what we have been doing for the past four or five weeks, to understand where we have improved and what we need to improve ”, said Arteta, in a press conference.
«Everything went very well and we managed to find some goals. We started working on them and we hope to see the result in the coming weeks », said the coach of the gunners.
Asked if he was contemplating possible transfers in the future, Arteta replied: “Without a doubt, we need to know the direction we are taking and predict different scenarios. Then, I will have to tell the club who we need and where we need to improve. »
