Arsenal aren’t done in the transfer window just yet, and they could make as many as three new signings…
That’s according to transfer insider Dean Jones, who delivered an exciting update to ‘The Done Deal Show’ this week, where he claimed:
“I think that Arsenal still have a slot to fill in their attacking ranks.
“They feel they’re lacking, not just one more piece, it’s plausible that Arsenal could make three more signings before the window is out but in terms of their attacking threat I think they would like one more to add to their depth.
“There are doubts about [Nicolas] Pepe and his future, but we’ll have to see how that situation is sorted out.”
This update from the Eurosport journalist will set pulses racing around the Emirates Stadium as it’s evident that the Gunners’ hierarchy aren’t messing around this summer in their quest to bolster Mikel Arteta’s playing squad.
The north London giants narrowly missed out on qualification to the Champions League, with arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur pipping them at the post.
So far this transfer window, Arsenal’s ownership have splashed out around £120m on five new players, including big-money moves for Manchester City duo Gabriel Jesus (£45m) and Oleksandr Zinchenko (£32m), as well as Fabio Vieira (£34m) from FC Porto.
The Gunners also missed out on a move for Raphinha, who had his sights set on a dream transfer to FC Barcelona in LaLiga, although their interest in the former Leeds United man suggests that they were in the market for a new right winger.
Arteta could also probably do with further depth in the engine room and whilst Zinchenko does provide added cover, there’s still little quality behind both Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey.
Going by Jones’s bombshell, it’s clear that the north Londoners are looking to add at least one more signing, if not two to three more and that should leave supporters absolutely buzzing and excited about the near future.
With less than six weeks to go until deadline day, we should expect further movement in N7.
