Arteta Needs Money To Improve Arsenal – Seaman

David Seaman admits that Arsenal “can’t really get any worse”, but he does feel that Mikel Arteta needs to be backed in the transfer market as he continues to work with a squad inherited from Arsene Wenger and Unai Emery.

A highly-rated Spanish tactician has started to put his own stamp on things at Emirates Stadium, with the likes of Willian, Gabriel Magalhaes and Thomas Partey snapped up over the summer.

He has, however, seen too many senior stars underperform this season, leading to the Gunners making their worst start to a Premier League campaign.

Victory proved elusive again in their most recent outing, as Gabriel saw red in a 1-1 draw at home to Southampton, but Seaman hopes positives can be taken from that contest that allow the north London giants to shake themselves out of a serious rut.

The legendary former Gunners goalkeeper told talkSPORT: “We all know how good Arsenal can be, especially the way they play with one-touch, two-touch – that is what they are known for, those hidden passes in between defenders.
“At the moment it isn’t happening. It’s a massive lack of confidence. Hopefully the [Southampton] result is going to push them on a little bit because, if I’m honest, it can’t really get any worse.”
With Arsenal toiling, pressure has been building steadily on Arteta.
