Mikel Arteta and Edu have discovered Arsenal's next two transfer moves after Crystal Palace win

The latest Arsenal news looks at what company Mikel Arteta and technical director Edu will be able to complete when the summer transfer window opens in the coming weeks.

Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, must fix his team's spine during the summer transfer window.

That is the opinion of former Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole, who gave his verdict on what Arsenal can do ahead of next season after seeing the Gunners' 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace on Wednesday evening.


Though impressed with Arsenal's attacking threat, Cole was dissatisfied with the roles Gabriel Magalhaes and Mohamed Elneny played in Christian Benteke's 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park.

"When I talk about the frailties in this Arsenal unit, it's the same thing we've said for years and years," Cole said on BT Sport. "You hear Arsenal fans chatting in the pub and it's still the same stuff."

"Elneny goes down too easily [for Benteke's goal] - you've got your holding midfielder and your center-half going down with minimal contact when they should be focused."

"I don't want to go back to the days when they had Sol Campbell, Tony Adams, and Martin Keown, but it must be so frustrating for Arsenal fans."

"It didn't cost them tonight because of the talent on the other end of the field."

"In those cases, if you're Elneny and the enforcer, and a hand goes on your back in that field, you stay up and follow your runner." You raise your hands if it's a perfect cross and a great header as it was.

"But it's not nice enough for both of them to be on the floor looking up when Benteke heads it in."

"Arsenal supporters are extremely dissatisfied with the situation. They will return if they deal with that - if Arteta can deal with that in the summer, with the end of the season they've had

"Maybe not for the top spot, but definitely for the Champions League." So there is much to be optimistic about, but they must fix this problem.

"But how many have we said that over the years?"

According to Cole's words, Arteta and technical director Edu's next two transfer moves seem to have already been discovered following the win over Palace.
