Ornstein discusses about other targets for Arsenal in the summer
David Ornstein discussed about other possible options other than Rice. He said SkySports:-
“Arsenal will have added impetus coming into this window, with the added revenues of Champions League football. The Kroenkes have already been investing heavily in the transfer market at Arsenal in recent years, in particular since they took full control of the club.
“So, I don’t think this apparent (£200m) war chest is a reaction to what’s happened, it’s a continuation of what they have been doing. Their ambitions are going to be high because they are playing in a higher level of competition.
“Their interest in Rice is well documented, they will have competition for his signing. They looked into it in January, similarly with Caicedo. I’m not sure they are going to be able to do both financially, but clearly, the interest is there.
“I think they want a creative midfielder if possible as well, that’s why the likes of Mason Mount have come on their radar, but so too other clubs like Liverpool and Manchester United.”
