Arsenal are preparing for a big summer ahead as they want to improve their squad going into the next season following a disastrous spell towards the end of the recently concluded campaign. Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta needs to make a number of quality signings this window to do better this term.
The young squad of The Gunners impressed last season but fell short of the Champions League spots. Also, rubbing salt to their wounds, their bitter North London rivals edged them to set them back to Europa League. Tottenham Hotspurs won the key fixture of the North London derby from where Arsenal slipped from the all-coveted 4th spot. That fixture near the season’s end and a trip to St. James Park, resulting in a loss on the penultimate PL matchday almost ensured the Gunners’ exclusion from next year’s Champions League.
In a bid to return to UCL again, the Spaniard tactician is planning to bring some big names to Emirates. Reports linked a number of high profile players with the club and we will look at some of them.
Gabriel Jesus to Arsenal: ‘personal terms agreed’
According to Football Insider, Arsenal has agreed personal terms with Jesus, although nothing eventful with Manchester City, his present club. A reunion with the former assistant manager of Man City is on the cards if the Brazilian agrees to a deal to move to Emirates Stadium. Amid interest from Arsenal, Real Madrid and more recently Chelsea also took note of the situation. They might put in a bid to lure him.
Left-back interest for The Gunners
According to Portuguese news outlet A Bola, Arsenal joined the race to sign Benfica left-back Alex Grimaldo. The full-back impressed at the Portuguese club and is also a former youth product of FC Barcelona. With only a year remaining in his current contract, he is drawing potential transfer interest from other clubs. Benfica set an asking transfer fee of around £17million for him.
