After suffering defeat for the second consecutive season, Arsenal finished second in the Premier League behind Man City, and the Gunners are already planning to improve next year.

Arsenal’s journey to the next season has begun following a devastating end to the current one.

Once again, the Gunners placed second in the Premier League, and Mikel Arteta and Edu Gaspar will surely be back at the drawing board, figuring out what has to be done to completely transform Manchester City in the upcoming season. The transfer market will need to be active during the long summer, and Arsenal’s players will be competing in both the Copa America and EURO 2024.

Arteta told his fans not to be depressed and already had his sights set on winning the championship. “All of this is happening because you began to believe, to be patient, and to comprehend what we attempted to accomplish,” he stated. The players and the staff deserve all the credit. Avoid being depressed. We’re going to get much more than that, which is what we want.”

Arteta’s update on Bukayo Saka

Bukayo Saka was left out of Arsenal’s squad for their match against Everton on the final day. However, Gunners manager Arteta stated that the important winger would be fit for England’s EURO 2024 team the following month.

When asked if the 22-year-old would be ready for the tournament in Germany, the Spaniard answered simply, “Yeah.” Prior to the match, Saka sustained the injury during practice, according to Arteta.

“Unfortunately he picked up a small muscle injury in training and he wasn’t available to play,” he stated to TNT Sports.

Kai Havertz’s assurance

Kai Havertz repeated his manager’s assertion that he would return the following season determined to win the Premier League. Even though he scored the game-winning goal against Everton, the German forward was dejected as Arsenal lost to Man City for the second straight season.

Havertz expressed regret to all Arsenal supporters, saying to TNT Sports, “We did our best, but it wasn’t enough. We could look back on this and say, “It was a good fight,” in two or three months, but for now, I think we deserved better. We go again the following year, but ultimately it wasn’t enough.

“In football, things aren’t always fair, but we have to deal with it. Though football is challenging, maybe we can return the following year and provide the Arsenal supporters with what they deserve and the reason they are all here.”

Sesko deadline

Now that Arsenal is looking to compete again next season, many people’s focus will shift to the transfer window. For the north London team, signing a striker is on the schedule, and Arteta and company seem to be considering Benjamin Sesko.

According to German reports, the forward for RB Leipzig has a £55.9 million release clause that expires at the end of the Bundesliga season. This number was contingent upon several factors related to performance. It is stated that teams must take action by the end of June in order to benefit from the Slovenian international’s clause. Not much time is wasted.
