Mikel Arteta is expecting Arsenal to be busy in the summer transfer window and says their business will be ‘unprecedented for a club of this stature,’ reports metro.co.uk.

Arteta suggested there will be a lot of incomings and outgoings as he seeks to take Arsenal to the next level’.
It’s been a disappointing first season in charge for the former Manchester City assistant manager.
Arsenal is currently 10th in the Premier League and eight points off the top four and their only realistic hope of silverware is the Europa League.
Despite their poor season, Arteta’s position is not thought to be under threat and he is already planning for the next transfer window.

And he admitted there will be a lot of transactions they have to make in order to get back to the required level.
“We will see. We are planning what’s going to happen in the summer,’ said Arteta.
“It will depend on where we finish, how we finish. I think what we have to do in the summer is unprecedented for a club of this stature.
“To do the number of transactions that we have to make it tells you as well where we are.”

Meanwhile, Arteta insists he’s happy and focused on his job at Arsenal, despite suggestions that he could be in line to become the next manager at Barcelona.
The Spaniard came through the ranks at the Camp Nou but he failed to make a first-team appearance for the Catalans before joining Rangers in 2002.
The La Liga giants will hold presidential elections next week and the outcome could have a bearing on Ronald Koeman’s future, with the Dutchman in line to be sacked depending on who wins the race.
That has led to suggestions that Arteta could return to the club as manager but the Spaniard insists he’s happy at the Emirates.

‘There’s always going to be speculation,’ said Arteta.
‘When there are elections in Barcelona it’s a huge thing. Obviously, I was raised there as a player and I’m always going to be linked.
‘But I’m fully focused on the job we have to do here which we have a lot to do. I’m really enjoying it.
‘Today and tomorrow I am the manager of Arsenal Football Club and I’m really enjoying it. I want to do much better than what I’ve done.’
