Arsenal still an attractive option for players – says Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta
Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, says the Gunners is still an attractive option for players and feels any prospective new signing should not need much convincing to join Arsenal.
After victory over Premier League champions Liverpool in midweek, Arsenal recorded an impressive 2-0 triumph against Manchester City in Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final, raising the possibility of not just a trophy but also a Europa League spot.
Arteta said: “I’ve said it before that I do not think we should bring in players who need a lot of convincing,” Arteta told the media. “This club has enough to be attracted to it.
“The feeling I get when I talk to a lot of people is that the players still want to come to the club, because of the history, the way we do things, our values, the fans that we have and our stadium.
“They are really attractive things.”
He continued: “Our obligation with this club is to fight for silverware, to be with the top teams.
“We have reached the final. I put that pressure upon myself, because that’s the way I look at the cub. I know no other way.
“For me, to be able to beat in my opinion the best team in the country is great.”
