Arsenal are likely set for another busy summer transfer window in 2023 as Mikel Arteta bids to build on last term. So, keep up to date on the Gunners’ confirmed signings and exits here.
The Emirates Stadium outfit enjoyed a terrific campaign in 2022/23 as Arsenal secured their return to the Champions League. Arteta also oversaw a surprise Premier League title push in north London, just falling shy of European treble-winners Manchester City in the final weeks.
Arsenal had not qualified for UEFA’s premier club competition since featuring in the 2016/17 edition. They had also not finished a Premier League term in second place since 2015/16. Yet the arrivals of Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko helped to launch them up the table.
Arteta will hope Arsenal can confirm the signings of further superstars to improve his squad over the summer of 2023. And all of the Gunners’ moves by September 1 will be listed here.
