Arsenal transfer news: Edu defends recruitment strategy


Arsenal technical director Edu has defended the club’s recruitment strategy and transfer policy amid criticism that almost £150m worth of new players has barely improve the starting XI.

The Gunners brought in Nuno Tavares, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Ben White, Aaron Ramsdale and Takehiro Tomiyasu, as well as securing a permanent deal for Martin Odegaard.

Perhaps only midfielder Odegaard, who was at Arsenal last season on loan, and centre-back White are active improvements on the players the club already had in those positions.

But Edu insists there is a much bigger picture that must be looked at.

“We signed six players who are under 23, which means a lot in terms of our planning. Normally, people like to see just one window, so I have to say it is the bigger picture because we started planning this squad a year ago in terms of consolidating the team and to try to get a better foundation,” the former Arsenal midfielder told Sky Sports.
