Mikel Arteta has confirmed Arsenal are still in the market for new signings. The Gunners have already brought in five new players this summer but Arteta is hopeful of making more additions if the right opportunities arise.

Arsenal are the biggest spenders in the Premier League so far this summer. They have committed to pay almost £120million, with Gabriel Jesus the most expensive arrival at £45m.

The Gunners have had a successful pre-season and demolished La Liga side Sevilla 6-0 to win the Emirates Cup on Saturday. Jesus scored a hat-trick to continue his fine start at the club.

Oleksandr Zinchenko also impressed at left-back and is likely to start on the opening day of the season against Crystal Palace. But Arteta is still not 100 per cent satisfied with his squad.

Speaking after the match, the former Gunners captain revealed he would still like to be active in the market if the right players are available. He said: “We are still hoping to do something else if the market allows.

“You have seen some movement in the last few days as well. We want to get the perfect balance and the plan we wanted from the beginning”.
