Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is delighted with the progress of his young players this season.

The Gunners are in the Europa League for next season.

Arteta said of his kids: "I'm extremely proud, I'm even surprised about how far they've come, and not only them we have many other examples of that as well and this is part of the decision that we made last summer, that if we are going to get to a certain level those players normally they get to that level when they get in the peak of their careers, obviously they are not there, but they are moving fast and they are giving us hope with them, we can reach the level that we want.

"The standards of this club have to be to win, and the moment that we don't look at that with a timeframe or when we are going to win, we are not going to get there. So my aim is to win the biggest trophies and my plan is to win here and what we have to do before that to be able to reach that level."

On summer squad changes, Arteta added: "From my side, I will do and the club will do what we have to do and what we think is the best thing for the club to move forward and do it with the integrity and the honesty that we've always done it. Those players know individually their situation, when it's going to be communicated, and then that situation happens face to face the way that they deserve."
