Jamie Redknapp believes Arsenal’s best bit of business over the last year was bringing in Mikel Arteta as the club’s manager.
Arteta was appointed as Gunners’ boss in December 2019, replacing Unai Emery following a poor start to the 2019-20 season.
Since the former midfielder took over at the Emirates Stadium, the club saw a positive turn in results and the style of play changed massively.
After working with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, Arteta has adopted a similar style of short-passing football, but with some differences.
Redknapp, speaking about the Gunners’ transfer business in the summer window as they chase Thomas Partey, has explained how their best bit of business was the appointment of Arteta almost 12 months ago.
The former Liverpool midfielder said on Sky Sports News: “Their best signing has been their manager.
“There were some players there that I thought weren’t good enough – not just for Arsenal – but for the Premier League.
Why should you sign up?
It is set to be a busy day in the Premier League.
It’s transfer deadline day and there is plenty of business still to be done.
Arsenal are still looking for a midfielder to add to Mikel Arteta’s ranks, with Houssem Aouar, Thomas Partey and Jorginho the three that have been heavily linked this window.
