Arsenal missed out on their ultimate goal this season by missing Champions League qualification by two points to London rival Tottenham Hotspur. Despite failing to qualify for the top four, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta will continue to be backed in the transfer market this offseason. There are several names that have been drawn up as possible signings.
Arteta could address squad needs by signing players from his former team Manchester City. The Arsenal manager has a few players set to depart the Emirates and those replacements will be vital to improving the team.
The Premier League season’s start is just around the corner and Arsenal supporters are debating whether or not the Gunners can finish in the top four. Bettors can read the latest Nigerian sports betting apps reviews before signing up and wagering on the upcoming campaign.
In April, it seemed like Jesus to Arsenal was nearly finalised. Yet, in recent weeks, the deal may not be as close as originally believed. Arteta wants Jesus to replace Alexandre Lacazette. The manager loves Jesus’s versatility. The forward was out of favour for parts of the season at Manchester City, but became a key player in the Cityzens’ final push for the Premier League title.
Guardiola is likely to add a new full-back at Manchester City, which would make left-back Zinchenko surplus to requirements. Zinchenko is heavily linked with Arsenal at the moment. It seems a strange signing with Kieran Tierney at the Emirates. However, it is claimed Arsenal are ready to axe the £24 million signing this offseason.
Arteta has adapted the tactic of his mentor Guardiola and that is to sign a defender in every summer transfer window. Levi Colwill could move to the Emirates this season, but Leicester City are also chasing the defender. Colwill spent the 2021-22 season on loan at Championship club Huddersfield helping them finish third in the table and qualify for the playoffs. The defender played 29 games, scoring two goals and adding one assist. He is owned by Chelsea, who are likely to sell Colwill this summer.
If there were any doubters to striker Tammy Abraham’s ability to score goals, they should be quieted now. Abraham left Chelsea last offseason for £36 million for Serie A’s Roma. The striker hit the ground running under Jose Mourinho and went on to score 27 goals in 53 games in all competitions. Abraham won the Europa Conference League with the Giallorossi and scored nine goals in the competition. Abraham’s final Serie A goal tally was 17 in 37 appearances. He scored more goals in a single Serie A season than any other English player.
From unwanted midfielder at Monaco to in-demand central maestro at Leicester City, it has been quite a journey for Youri Tielemans. Just one season remains on Tielemans’ current Leicester City contract and the player has already stated he wants to leave the club. Arsenal are interested in the midfielder, but could miss out on signing Tielemans due to a lack of Champions League football.
