Arteta: Arsenal are ready to reach a “different level” in this season

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said his team is ready to reach a “different level” in this season and that the signing of Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko will help develop the youngest players in the squad. “We are ready to move to a different level and I am convinced of it,” Arteta told reporters ahead of his first Premier League game of the season at Crystal Palace later on Friday. “What the other teams are doing is clear, the others had a much stronger team than ours and they are still signing four or five players and some of them have seven. “It won’t be any easier, so we can focus on what we’re trying to do and what we can do, because we can’t do everything at the same time.” (Reuters)
