Unai Emery insists Arsenal are working to bring in “three or four” players before the start of the new season.
So far this summer the Gunners have only signed 18-year-old forward Gabriel Martinelli despite being linked with a host of names.
Arsenal have a smaller budget than the majority of their closest Premier League rivals but have still continued to show reported interest in some key targets.
Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, Kieran Tierney of Celtic and young Saint-Etienne defender William Saliba have all attracted attention from the Emirates Stadium hierarchy this summer.
But, with only Burnley, Newcastle, Crystal Palace and Norwich forking out less on new recruits so far, the lack of investment is one of the issues highlighted by an alliance of Arsenal supporters’ groups in recent days.
However, speaking ahead of Arsenal’s opening International Champions Cup clash with Bayern Munich in Los Angeles, Emery claims there will be more transfer activity in the coming days as he looks to build a squad to take the club back into the Champions League.
“We are working, the club is working with the possibility to sign some new players to help us. We have very good players and very good young players who can progress to take and get big performances with us. Other players can come here to help us.
“We are being very, very demanding and we are first speaking about the possibility to sign very big, very expensive players.” he said.
