Arsenal fans might be dissatisfied with the team's performance, but it seems the club has a plan to make the once-great Gunners a formidable force again.

A careful look at the trend at the club suggests the club is moving in onection - to make the club competitive for a long time to come.

At the moment, the results are not the desired, with some sections of the fans baying for blood, while a majority seem to have come to terms with the fact that it's not the competitive force it used to be.

The team finished 8th twice in a row, but the club executive is unperturbed but moving steadily in a pre-plannedction. The plan by Arsenal chief Edu has put Bernd Leno in the market as they try to sell off players.

Edu's three-part plan

Arsenal are looking to sell off players as part of a three-part plan ahead of next year. The plan that was put in place by Arsenal Chief Edu has seen Bernd Leno surplus to requirements.

Arsenal are comfortable in the thought that the arrival of Aaron Ramsdale would cover up adequately for the loss of the German goalkeeper.

The plan is executed alongside the club gaffer Mikel Arteta is to overhaul the team.

Edu's three-part plan is to improve the homegrown core of the team, lower its average age and ensure that the best young talents in Europe ply their trade at the Emirates.

While clubs like Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool and perhaps Manchester United are considered challengers for the various titles on board, Arsenal has fallen way off the wagon and are contenting themselves with a rebuild that should bring them back to the table.

Heavy investment in youth

While clubs like Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City are building their team with established stars, Arsenal has decided to go in the oppositection. The other clubs can afford to sign big-name players because they can afford it, but Arsenal has decided to tie down the future.

The Gunners have put up a heavy outlay on bringing in young and exciting youngsters that should develop and reign in years to come.

Some of the players that have found their way to the Emirates are Nuno Tavares, Aaron Ramsdale, Martin Odegaard, Takehiro Tomiyasu and Ben White.

With a competent goalkeeper in Bernd Leno, Aaron Ramsdale was a surprise signing by the club. The Englishman joined Arsenal from Sheffield United for a fee of around £30 million.

According to Eurosport, the plan is for Ramsdale to become the club's No. 1 as they try to ship Leno out.

Ramsdale has kept two clean sheets, but Leno should return to the lineup as Arsenal take on Wimbledon in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday before a London derby with Spurs at the weekend.
