Reports emerging from England over the weekend have suggested that Mikel Arteta will scale back his transfer plans for the 2022 summer window.
The Spaniard and Arsenal were expected to have another big summer transfer window as they continue their rebuild.
However, according to The Sun, the Arsenal boss is scaling back on his plans for a major spending spree after initially targeting up to seven new signings. It is believed that he will now focus on three signings for the upcoming season.

The report goes on to claim that the Gunners’ failure to qualify for the Champions League at the end of the campaign has resulted in the decision to change Arsenal’s transfer plans.
“We are going to have certain resources. Not unlimited resources, certain resources. With those resources, we have to do what we have to do in the best possible way,” Arteta said at the end of the 2021/22 campaign.
And now, whilst Arsenal’s spending looks set to be limited this summer, Tottenham have given themselves a cash boost of £150m and have already signed Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan.
Antonio Conte’s squad are also, on the whole, a more experienced team than Arsenal who generally rely on young talent under the age of 25.
So, as well as seeing them miss out on Champions League football for one season, Arsenal’s collapse at the end of 2021/22 looks to have caused a major setback in their rebuilding process, handing Tottenham the advantage in the race to be England’s 4th-best club.
