Arteta insists Arsenal need ‘at least a few windows’ before mounting challenge for Premier League

Arsenal vs Wolves

Arsenal return to Premier League action on Sunday evening.

The Gunners will play host to Wolves, aiming to bounce back from an altogether disappointing start to their domestic campaign.

Mikel Arteta’s men have lost four and drawn one of their nine Premier League outings this season.

They are also struggling to find the net, last notching from open play vs Sheffield United in early October.

In turn, a tough test is predicted versus a Wolves side currently sit 9th in the English top-flight.

Arteta on Arsenal challenging for Premier League

Ahead of Sunday’s clash, meanwhile, Mikel Arteta was this weekend drawn on his side’s Premier League title ambitions.

And, unsurprisingly, the Spaniard quickly moved to temper any expectations on the part of the Gunners faithful.

Arteta revealed his opinion that he and the Arsenal hierarchy will likely require a number of transfer windows to reinforce the club’s squad, before they can truly compete for the Premier League title:

“That [will] take a few windows at least to do that.

“To establish yourself to compete at the level of certain clubs in this league, which is nearly 100 points, it takes time.

“In football, time is very precious and people are very impatient. But if you don’t respect the processes and you ask certain people to do certain things when the foundations are not there, it’s a really dangerous thing to do.

“I know we all want to see Arsenal at the top of the league. My only intention every time is to prepare the football match. Where we get, time will tell. There’s still a lot of things that are going to happen.”
