Arsenal have been making poor decisions in the transfer market during Mikel Arteta's reign. Indeed, very few signings made by the Spaniard have had the desired impact at the Emirates. Instead, players like Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Laccazete who were performing well before Arteta's arrival, are struggling to find form.
Arsenal will kick off the 2021/2022 Premiere League season by playing on Friday night against Brentford FC. Fans will expect the Gunners to easily win that game, given Brentford just came from the Championship. However, Mikel Arteta's task is set to be made more difficult than anticipated as Arsenal are set to miss two of their most important players.
