Plenty of Arsenal fans were delighted after a report emerged over one of Mikel Arteta’s demands ahead of the summer transfer window.
According to Daily Mail, the Spaniard wants the club to complete all their business before the start of this summer’s European Championships. However, that could well prove to be a tricky feat with the tournament starting just 13 days after the Champions League final, the last game of Europe’s football season.
With reports from The Sun claiming that Arteta wants to see a ‘major shakeup’ of his squad, completing business before the start of the tournament seems a tad unrealistic. The Gunners have dragged out their transfer business in the past with the club only completing the moves for Kieran Tierney and David Luiz hours before the window shut last August (via BBC). Fans were left feeling excited by the report as they took to Twitter to react. Here is a selection of tweets from the Emirates Stadium faithful:

The way it should be. Any targets playing in the tournament are just going to jump up in price
