Arsenal transfer news: Chief executive Ivan Gazidis confirms Gunners are working on more high-profile transfers
Arsenal looking to add to signing of Alexis Sanchez
Friday 11 July 2014
The arrival of Alexis Sanchez at the Emirates has already ensured this has been a good week for Arsenal fans, but they have now received an extra boost after chief executive Ivan Gazidis announced the club are working on more tranfers.
Sanchez's £30m move from Barcelona was more transfer action in a summer than most Arsenal fans are used to, but Gazidis confirmed during a brief appearance at the club's kit launch yesterday, that the spending is set to continue.
The 49-year-old told supporters that more deals are set to be completed in the coming weeks.
"We’ve pulled off a good one with Alexis Sanchez, but there’s more work to be done," he told Arsenal Fan TV.
"I’m not going to talk about it until it’s done. I’ve got to get back, we’ve got more work to do."
Arsenal are reportedly in the market for midfielder Sami Khedira and striker Loic Remy.
