Sanllehi convinced top targets will sign for Gunners
Arsenal have already started their summer recruitment plans and will be able to convince players to sign, head of football Raul Sanllehi believes.
Unai Emery’s squad are currently preparing for next week’s Europa League final against Chelsea.
The outcome of the showdown in Baku will determine whether or not the Gunners can offer potential new players Champions League football once again.
The Gunners need to replace Danny Welbeck, Aaron Ramsey and veteran goalkeeper Petr Cech for starters, and Sanllehi is confident of doing so.
‘What I can tell you is that we have identified very clearly and unanimously with our head coach and technical people, we know what we want to prioritise and we’re very clear on what our priorities are,’ Sanllehi said.
‘We’re already in the market and we’re already talking with the people that can help us to cover those positions and I feel quite strong.
‘It’s going well and the image that Arsenal has in the football world is very strong.
‘Vinai was mentioning we’re a top world club and we are, so we need to go where we belong and that’s the Champions League.
‘Many players really want us to be there also when we’re talking with them, but I feel quite strong on the inputs that I’m getting so far.
‘I do believe that we have a very good plan to cover those positions to be much stronger next year, to deliver the success that we’re all hoping for.’
