Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, is frustrated by the project’s sluggish market development. Since the end of the season, the Gunners have been connected with a number of high-profile targets, but they have not yet succeeded in landing anyone. And Arteta believes there has been a breakdown in communication between London and the US as they work to close transactions.
According to the Daily Mail, the board is asking that all significant moves be approved by the American ownership, which Arteta worries would cost them the chance to capture Manchester City top transfer target Gabriel Jesus.
The Brazil striker has been on the market for two months, and while Arsenal expressed interest right away, neither City nor the player have been able to come to an agreement on terms. City wants £50 million in exchange for the striker.
