Arsenal are looking like a club going in the right direction again. Their pro-activeness this summer is admirable, but did they just start now? Arsenal’s goals are clear, and they are beginning to make moves that could kick-start an enjoyable era for fans of the club.

Arteta’s Arsenal Plan And The Structure

Edu Gaspar became Arsenal’s Technical Director in 2019 and since then, he has made moves that have shown the path that the North London club wants to go.

Arsenal fired Unai Emery and appointed Mikel Arteta in December 2019. Mikel and Edu have struck an amazing partnership that has created a positive and firm belief at the club.

Arteta’s plan was to qualify for the UEFA Champions League last season, a goal he almost achieved. This was down to the coach strategically targeting games and knowing the strengths of his squad. Despite their failure to return to the UCL this year, Edu and Mikel have created a strong belief among the young Gunners.


Getting rid of Aubameyang and Lacazette shows that there is a clear map of what both men want to do at Arsenal. There is a viable project at the club that Edu and Arteta have devised an effective way to achieve.
The structure is to build a young but capable squad that will only increase in output and value. They are also willing to spend large when it is necessary.

This summer

This summer has only shown Arsenal’s effective planning and focus on their project. Signing a relatively unknown midfielder from Porto didn’t just happen. It took months of intense scouting and analysis.

Fabio Vieira is a technically gifted midfielder who will only excel alongside players like Martin Odegaard and Emile Smith Rowe.

They are also closing in on Gabriel, Jesus, and Raphinha, whilst having some of the most effective youngsters in the league.

A New Era?

Their smart planning will help create a new and enjoyable era at the club. With young and hungry players ready to fight for their young coach. Gabriel Jesus, Martinelli, Saka, Emile Smith-Rowe, Martin Odegaard, Ben White, and Gabriel Magalhaes will form the core of a “NEW ARSENAL”

With the likes of Manchester City, and Liverpool leading the league, it will not just be enough to have a good project, so what if their project fails? The club will end up with players in their prime or nearing their prime to cash in on or rebuild something with. It’s a win-win situation for the Gunners, Edu, and Mikel Arteta. It certainly will be interesting to watch how it all unfolds at the Emirates Stadium in the years to come.
