Arsenal’s transfer window assessed: Gunners push reset button but Mikel Arteta needs a quick fix

Arsenal had a higher transfer spend than any other Premier League club during the summer transfer window; Gunners brought in six new faces aged between 21 and 23; strategy is to switch focus to youth but will it save Mikel Arteta?

Takehiro Tomiyasu became Arsenal’s sixth signing of a busy summer on Deadline Day, his £19.8m arrivals from Bologna taking the club’s transfer to spend past £150m.

The right-back, 22, follows Ben White, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Nuno Tavares, Aaron Ramsdale and Martin Odegaard to the Emirates Stadium, with all six signings aged between 21 and 23 years old.

The new additions show a concerted effort to lower the average age of the squad and invest in the future of the club, but has the overhaul gone far enough?

And with Mikel Arteta already facing mounting pressure following Arsenal’s dismal start to the Premier League season, will the new faces be able to provide the immediate improvement required?
