Arsenal’s business in the summer transfer window has been applauded by Granit Xhaka, with the Gunners midfielder delighted to see Pierre-Emerick
Aubameyang sign a new contract and Willian – a man who “knows how to win titles” – arrive from Chelsea.
Mikel Arteta has been working hard to get reinforcements on board at Emirates Stadium.
He does not have the biggest budget at his disposal and cannot afford to compete with the likes of Chelsea when it comes to indulging in elaborate spending sprees.
Arsenal have, however, got creative in their dealings, with experienced Brazil international Willian acquired as a free agent.
They have also got another defender on board in the form of Gabriel Magalhaes, while important funds have been brought in from the £20 million ($26m) sale of Emi Martinez to Aston Villa.
Xhaka is among those to have been left impressed, amid the promise of more arrivals to come, with the combative midfielder telling SDA:
“With Willian and Gabriel, Arsenal brought a lot of quality and mentality into the dressing room. Willian knows how to win titles.
“And the extension with Aubameyang was an important signal for all of us – we want to go back to the Champions League.”
