Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta “won’t survive” more than 10 games next season if his summer transfer plans fail, an expert claims.
Arteta boldly stepped into a big job at Emirates Stadium in December 2019. The Gunners were facing a steep drop under Unai Emery, but his compatriot Spain managed to secure European football for this season. During last summer’s transfer window the club struggled with their finances and Thomas Partey proved his biggest catch at £ 45million.
After a poor first half of the Premier League season, ArsenalThe chances of qualifying for Europe via the national route appear slim.
However, they could still win the Europa League and reach the Champions League next season.
Nevertheless, this summer will prove to be important for Arteta as he seeks to take Arsenal to the next leg of their journey.
Indeed, expert Tony Cascarino believes the manager could leave next season if his transfer plan fails.
“I was thinking of Arsenal and Tottenham, oddly enough, at the same time yesterday,” Cascarino said. talkSPORT.
“I was just thinking what a mess these two clubs got into and that stems from the ownership. It played a huge role.
“The clubs are a mess. Both have built new, state-of-the-art stadiums. The Emirates was awesome when it was built. Compete with the best in Europe and Tottenham have done the same.
“The problem is they’re a mess on the pitch. Things will change in these two clubs. Arteta has a huge challenge to reinvent Arsenal.
“He will have this summer to do that but 10 games in the next year, if things are not very different he will not survive.”
Speculation has already indicated that Arteta’s work is in danger.
