Finally Arsenal has a “modern”, “ambitious” manager who is not afraid to spend big money on transfers to take the club to the “next level“. That much is indisputable after the club spent a record €167.42m in the summer of 2021-22 in support of Mikel Arteta’s shift to youthful talent in the form of Ben White, Ramsdale, Odegaard, Lakonga, Tavares and Tomiyasu.

In this podcast with yours truly, Blackburn George and ex-scout Ehab evaluate whether or not Arteta and Arsenal have been successful with their transfers.

Surely there are mature, thoughtful, realistic Gooners who are concerned by the level of spending and the future prospects of the club?
