Opinion: How Arteta May Keep A Happy Dressing Room After New Signings Due To Competition For Places

Arsenal have made three new signings this summer already in which Marquinhos from Sao Paulo has arrived for £3m. So is a midfielder Fabio Vieira from Porto for £35m plus a £4.2m add-ons later. And now Matt Turner from MLS outfit who has made the Londoners to part ways with £5.75m as per Sunsport has joined as well.

According to Sunsport the Gunners are on the verge of signing Manchester City ace Gabriel Jesus in a deal worth £45m. This is possible to be followed up by Raphinha or Lisandro Martinez deal as the Daily Mail report that Arsenal are chasing the two players as well.

We take a look into how Mikel may keep a happy dressing room at Emirates Stadium after making such signings and there is the possibility of competition for places in his starting eleven.

Firstly, the manager needs to make it clear as early as this time of pre-season training to players. There is going to be a genuine as well as equal opportunity for every player to impress ahead of the next season, to stand a chance of getting into starting eleven.

Secondly, the manager has to choose his captain very early and ensure all the players agree into it. Incase of any problems he is able to sort it out before the beginning of next season to avoid future issues.

Lastly, Arteta will need a small group of senior players to lead as executive committee for the entire squad. In which they will be able to deal with any fine challenges among themselves in the squad before they evolve into huge problems.
