Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta expects a competitive summer market.

Arteta admits he wants to be busy during the close season transfer window.

He said: "I think the league has never been that competitive. The numbers you could produce six years ago in this league, today you are out of Europe. It's as simple as that. We know that and the plan we have is to be able to compete with these teams, but we don't know what resources other teams will have.

"But we know other teams are starting from a different position, because they are in a different moment but we still need to have the aim to do that, because if you don't, where do you end up? Just looking back, I don't want to do that.

"So we need to find ways to be able to compete with them, like we have done this season, because nobody expected us to do that with the squad we had and the expectation we had."

Arteta continued: "Yeah, if you give me six players I'll go in the transfer market and bring these six players. In the summer as well if we can do that, we have 25 players to select, the best three strikers in the world. Bring them here! I will coach them! I will be so happy to coach them."
