A WORD FROM THE KROENKES
Arsenal have spent more money than any other Premier League side this summer with five signings costing the club £132million.
Stan and Josh Kroenke are happy with the work conducted by sporting director Edu and are confident about the future.
In their programme notes for the Chelsea match they wrote: “We know there is much work ahead to get back to where we need to be but are confident about what can be achieved by this great club and our people.
“It is clear looking across Europe that we are dealing with a difficult transfer market due to the impacts of the pandemic but at the time of writing, are delighted to have signed Nuno Tavares, Sambi Lokonga and Ben White.
“We have also renewed the deals of Kieran Tierney and Emile Smith Rowe, both on a long-term basis.
“These are all young players that we are convinced can develop further and have a bright future with us.
“They are supported by a strong group of more experienced players including Granit Xhaka, who has signed an extended contract. This is an important step in terms of maintaining balance and stability in the squad.”
