EPL: The signings expected after Willian’s capture


English Premier League outfit, Arsenal are showing great ambition in this summer transfer window as they have already completed a deal with Chelsea for Brazilian winger, Willian on a three-year deal.

More are still being expected and if the words of Alan Smith are to be considered by manager Mikel Arteta, then the fans should expect at least two more signings.

Alan Smith in an interview with Sky Sports stated that the Gunners team still have a few funds to spend and that must not happen without adding a defender to the team.

He seeks for a perfect partnership with France international, William Saliba, who has just joined the club as he hailed the player’s quality and potential.

Alan Smith, therefore, added that Mikel Arteta will need a quality midfielder like Dani Ceballos, stressing that except his future is sorted out to return, there is a need to bring in a player of his kind.

Although, Arsenal have made Atletico Madrid midfielder, Thomas Partey their major target and are still hoping on the return of Dani Ceballos from Real Madrid in the coming season.

Arsenal chief, Edu has already hinted that more signings would be done before the end of the summer transfer window as a new project of rebuilding the team has already started.
