MIKEL ARTETA admits he still wants more signings despite Arsenal's 2-0 win at Crystal Palace.

The Gunners' boss praised "superb" debutant defender William Saliba, while star summer recruits Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko also impressed in the Premier League's curtain-raiser on Friday night.

But Arteta confirmed he wants to add to his haul of five newcomers before the transfer window shuts on September 1.

Asked if there would be more arrivals, the Spaniard told Sky Sports: "We are going to try.

"If we can do them, great. But now it's work with the players we have, the focus should be with the players we have.

"You need the right balance because if you come short in terms of physicality in this game, you’re going to be exposed.

"The most important thing is to win the first match, to build confidence and momentum.

"Then you can talk about things we need to improve - there were quite a few today, to be honest."

Arsenal's victory in South London was more about graft than craft.

Gabriel Martinelli nodded home a 20th-minute opener from Zinchenko's headed assist.

And although the Eagles pushed well for a late equaliser, Marc Guehi doubled the Gunners' margin of success by heading Bukayo Saka's cross into his own net.

Arteta said: "That’s the resilience we need to win football matches.

"Aaron Ramsdale did incredibly well from the one-on-one and won the game for us.

"Saliba was superb tonight. The way we started the game and played in the first half hour was superb - we should have scored more.

"We had to play the game in ways we didn’t want to as it went on because Palace are able to do that to you. 

"To win here, you need to suffer - we’ve done it and that’s part of the mentality we want to build, to come to places like this and win."

Arsenal in Yeremy Pino transfer boost with Villarreal ‘ready to accept bid of around £34m if player wants to leave’

ARSENAL have reportedly received a boost in their pursuit of Villarreal starlet Yeremy Pino ahead of a potential summer swoop.

The Gunners, as well as Liverpool, are claimed to be interested in the 19-year-old winger with boss Mikel Arteta keen to bring in another forward.

Big things are expected of the teenager, who chipped in with seven goals and four assists in 40 games in all competitions last season.

His fine form saw him called up for senior duty for Spain in October, where he has since made four appearances under Luis Enrique.

Understood to boast a release clause worth a whopping £67million, it is believed that Villarreal would be willing to sell him for considerably less.

According to AS, the LaLiga outfit are bracing themselves to receive an offer in the region of £34m-£42m.

Should they receive that much money, it has been said that they would likely accept it as it would ease their economic situation.

And the sale could match or eclipse their record departure which stands at £34m when Chinese side Beijing Guoan activated Cedric Bakambu's release clause in February 2018.

And Villarreal will be more likely to allow the transfer to take place if Pino expresses his desire to leave the club.

The Spanish news outlet has also stated that it remains to be seen whether it will be Arsenal or Liverpool that make the first move for the 2021 Europa League winner.

Arteta witnessed Pino first hand in May 2021 after the player starred against Arsenal in the Europa League semi-final second leg at the Emirates.

He gave left-back Kieran Tierney a torrid time in North London as the Yellow Submarine avoided defeat to set up a final clash against Manchester United.

Pino started the clash against the Red Devils, but was brought off in the 77th minute, with his side going on to win on penalties.

Along with Pino, Bayer Levekusen ace Moussa Diaby has also been linked with a switch to Arsenal.

Though with the Frenchman valued at £60m, the Gunners could decide against making a move.
