'We're still hoping': Mikel Arteta has just said what all Arsenal fans wanted to hear after Sevilla hammering

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta wants more signings at the club this summer, after watching his Gunners side hammer Sevilla this afternoon.

A Gabriel Jesus hat-trick was the highlight of the day as the Gunners ran out 6-0 winners against what should have been tough Spanish opposition. However, the La Liga side failed to really make a game of it and Arsenal were four up at the break and added another two after half-time.

Alongside Jesus, new signings like Zinchenko were given minutes, while William Saliba also impressed in the middle of the defence. However, despite spending £100m+ once again this summer, Mikel Arteta wants more signings at Arsenal.

“We are still hoping to do something else if the market allows us to do that. You have seen some movement in the as few days as well,” Arteta said after the game (Sky).

“We want to get the perfect balance and the plan we wanted from the beginning. Whether we accomplish that or not is another story.”

As we know, the Gunners tried and failed to sign Raphinha from Leeds. It was a hint that the club want another right winger to compete with Bukayo Saka. Of course, the England man will take some shifting, and he was on target twice today as well.

Pre-season or not, this was a statement from Arsenal. They hammered Sevilla at times and were simply too good in front of goal for the Spanish side to deal with.

If the Gunners do add yet another new face or two, then they’ll have a truly outstanding chance of making the top four if they can play like they did today.

Arteta hinting at more new signings says to everyone they are very active in the market. And to be honest, that’s just what the Arsenal fans will have wanted.
