Arsenal director Edu refused to comment on Gabriel Jesus deal

Sat 23 April 2022 | 17:48

ARSENAL manager Mikel Arteta has been promised "one or two" main signings this summer by technical director Edu.

On Saturday,

Arsenal

defeated

Manchester United

3-1 in a bid to finish in the top four.

Edu

also discussed the club's hopes for new signings this summer with

ESPN Brazil

.

"We're going to concentrate on signing one or two players," the former midfielder added. "After the revolution of last summer, we need to take the next step.

"We've prepared our strategy. Our planning has already been completed and delivered to the owners. It's a matter of taking it one step at a time to figure out how we're going to complete the season and implement the plan that I'm extremely pleased about."

There was no word on whether the contract to sign

Gabriel Jesus

was already in the works with the owners. The 25-year-old Brazilian striker's current deal at the

Etihad Stadium

expires in just over 16 months, and the champions may be forced to sell him.

When their contracts expire at the end of the season, Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are expected to leave. And, according to reports, Arteta is keen to improve his assault and has identified Jesus as a possible possibility in the upcoming transfer window. After a quarrel with the Spanish coach, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was permitted to join Barcelona earlier this year.
