Mikel Arteta is eyeing a major overhaul at the Emirates Stadium as Arsenal continue with their annual struggles in the Premier League.
Arsenal have endured yet another disappointing season and are currently placed ninth on the league table behind Sheffield United. They have failed to produce those quality wins against some top sides and that is really hurting their progress.
As per the Mirror, the Gunners are getting ready to welcome some new faces. With such a disappointing season, the board is certain to make a few additions to the team. However, it may not be as smooth as Arteta might have planned. Apparently, the Arsenal manager will not have the final say on transfer issues and this has given rise to an uneasy situation at the club. The hierarchy is to blame over here.
However all is not bad as some quality names are linked with a move to north London this summer and their addition to the squad might help Arsenal recover their lost glory. While all the rumoured names might not arrive at the Emirates at the end of the transfer window, the Gunners will be benefitted even if they manage to land at least one of them. The names linked to a switch to Arsenal are Thomas Partey and Dominik Szoboszlai.
Partey’s agent is reportedly set to travel to north London for possible negotiations and it is likely that the arrival of the 27 year-old might just solve the defensive-midfield issues that has been lying stagnant this season. He has been good for Atletico Madrid and is expected to continue his run of form if he does decide to make the switch.
Coming to RB Lepzig’s Szoboszlai, Arsenal can groom the talented youngster into a potential superstar. Not to forget, he has racked several good performances this season for the Bundesliga giants and has been in good form off late. Moreover, the talks with the club over the possible transfer of the youngster are already well advanced.
However, Matteo Guendouzi is linked with an exit from the club after having a fallout with Arteta.
One may speculate all he wants but ultimately time will tell what it holds for Arsenal in the coming future. The upcoming window is a slightly complicated one owing to the shortage of funds everywhere. A lot of swap-deals are expected and it’ll be interesting to see how the Gunners go about their business.
