Arsenal transfer news today August 17, 2020: According to the British press, the ‘Gunners’ latest movement is considered a historic ‘transfer’ when empowering Coach Arteta and Technical Director Edu.
Arsenal has just made a change in the top floor that caused a lot of attention, which is firing the head of the transfer, Mr. Raul Sanllehi, and at the same time bringing Mr. Vinai Venkatesham to the General Manager of the team.
However, in terms of expertise including being responsible for the first team and in charge of transfer, Mr. Vinai Venkatesham gives full authority to the “duo” of head coach Mikel Arteta and technical director, former football player Edu.
This change helps coach Arteta and Edu fully take the initiative in implementing Arsenal’s team reform project, including short, medium and long-term plans when transferring and purchasing players.
Since the end of the Premier League and Arsenal won the FA Cup, Coach Arteta has urged the team leaders to take urgent action such as selling off excess players to collect funds to buy new players, but all being yoke back for nearly a month.
Meanwhile, Mr. Raul Sanllehi – who worked at the leadership of Barcelona club – was investigated by Arsenal in the purchase of midfielder Nicolas Pepe for a record price (£ 72 million) has been ambiguous. Although he has not announced the results of the investigation, he recently left as one of the 55 staff members of the club to save about £ 3 million, as well as save about 1 salary.
According to Mr. Vinai Venkatesham: “We are impatient after what happened recently when Arsenal declined, unable to compete for the Premier League title nor in the Champions League. Everyone saw, with the stature of the club being disputed at these schools. Therefore, we must act quickly, quickly and decisively to bring Arsenal back to these competitions soon.
With Arteta and Edu, we have a dynamic coach, a specialist in player evaluation. They will be a formidable team. We give them all the power to decide the expertise of the team.
Of course, above them there are me and the Board of Directors. But they are experts in the field, they have a clear plan to rebuild the team and convince people. So we started to work right away in the transfer window that is taking place ”.
