5 Players Who Arsenal Could Look to Sign This Summer

Everything seems to be going well for Mikel Arteta and Arsenal at the moment, with the club seemingly in pole position to get back into the Champions League for the first time since 2017. And if the Gunners were to do so, they will need to make signings in the coming summer transfer window so that they can kick on and start to compete with Europe’s elite clubs.

One area that the Gunners will be looking to improve is their attack. With Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang acrimoniously leaving the club in January to join Barcelona, Arsenal have been left with just Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah to fill the void in attack. And with both players out of contract in the summer and likely to leave, reinforcements are needed.

Fiorentina star Dusan Vlahovic was heavily linked with the Gunners in January as a replacement for Aubameyang, but ultimately the Serb opted to join Juventus. And while Lacazette and Nketiah have performed admirably since then, they ultimately are not good enough to get Arsenal to where they want to be. And so, with the end of the football season rapidly approaching, we look at some of the players who the Gunners may look to sign.

Darwin Nunez - Benfica

Benfica’s young striker Darwin Nunez has been linked with many of Europe’s top clubs, with his impressive goal-scoring numbers catching the attention of many clubs who are on the hunt for a striker.

In just 22 appearances in the Primeira Liga this season, the Uruguayan has 20 goals and two assists, averaging a goal every 75 minutes. The forward has also scored four goals in Benfica’s Champions League campaign, helping his side to the quarter-finals.

With such impressive domestic and European numbers, officials at the Emirates may see Nunez as a player they need to sign.

Indeed, the Gunners reportedly contacted the players’ agent in January, but a deal was unable to be struck. However, it may be an option that the club could revisit in the summer, especially if they have managed to qualify for the Champions League – something that could tempt the player to move to North London.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin - Everton

The Everton forward has long been linked with a move away from Goodison Park, but injuries and Everton’s asking price has put off suitors.

But, Mikel Arteta is reported to be keen on bringing the Sheffield-born forward to the Emirates Stadium, as the striker has attributes that fit the style of play that Arteta is currently trying to implement at the club.

The 25-year-old is dominant in the air, and for a player who is 6ft 2, is mobile and quicker than other forwards of that build.

With the ability to play with his back to goal and bring others in with his link-up play, the striker who scored 16 and assisted three last season would be an upgrade on the outgoing Alexandre Lacazette. The forward is currently priced at 7/4 to join the North London side.

Paulo Dybala - Juventus

Ever since the news was announced that Paulo Dybala was ending his seven-year spell at Juventus and leaving as a free agent once his contract expires.

There have been many clubs who have got in touch with the player’s entourage to try and see if a transfer is viable. Many of the Premier League’s ‘big six’, including both Manchester clubs and London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham, in addition to both Milan clubs and Atletico Madrid, have looked into making a move for the player.

The Argentine excels as a second striker or in the ‘10’ role, with his playmaking abilities an asset that would benefit an Arsenal side that have on occasion under Mikel Arteta, struggled to create clear-cut chances.

Dybala’s overall record of 113 goals in 283 games and multiple league titles won, in addition to the magic he can produce on the ball make him an unorthodox yet attractive option for the Gunners.

Raphinha - Leeds United

Leeds’ Brazilian winger has established himself as one of the most dangerous players in the Premier League ever since his £17m arrival from Rennes. And it is this form which has seen him linked with a move away from relegation-threatened Leeds to a top-six side.

One such side interested in the forward is Arsenal. The Gunners are in need of a new winger because ever since spending an eye-watering £72m to bring Nicolas Pepe to the Emirates Stadium, the Ivorian has failed to impress and will go down as a huge waste of money for the club.

Despite the emergence of youngsters Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli, Mikel Arteta is reportedly keen on bolstering his attacking options with the addition of another winger.

It’s clear to see why Raphinha is of interest. In his 57 Premier League appearances, he has scored 15 goals and has laid on an assist for a teammate 12 times, better figures than more established players such as Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Steven Bergwijn and Allan Saint-Maximin. With the Brazilian currently priced at 14/1 to join Arsenal in the summer, he would make a great addition at the Emirates.

Ruben Neves - Wolverhampton Wanderers

With Granit Xhaka long being linked with a move away from the Emirates, and with the midfielder likely to finally depart this summer after six years in North London, the Gunners hierarchy will be looking at potential replacements for the midfielder.

One player who has been touted for a move is Wolves’ Portuguese star Ruben Neves, a player who shares many of Xhaka’s attributes, but many argue is better than the Swiss midfielder.

If Xhaka leaves, Arsenal are losing a player who has been touted for his leadership and captain qualities, which Neves could easily replace. Already vice-captain at Wolves, the Portuguese became the youngest player to captain a side in the Champions League when he led Porto against Maccabi Tel Aviv at just 18 years of age. And like Xhaka, the midfielder is known for his long balls from deep and recycling of possession in midfield to initiate attacks.

Neves also offers more discipline than Xhaka, with the Portuguese man conceding no penalties and never being shown a red card in the Premier League, as opposed to the four red cards Xhaka has received and the six penalties he has given away.
