Arsenal looking for new reinforcements as deals look promising

Arsenal

Despite the striker talks, Arsenal rejuvenated their season with a resounding victory over Crystal Palace last weekend.

Arsenal scored five against the Eagles, breaking a poor form streak without January signings. Arteta’s significant summer spending restricts new year investments, despite identified areas for improvement.

Ivan Toney appears likely to remain at Brentford until summer. Hence, Gunners are currently focusing on midfield signings rather than additions in the final third.

Arsenal may be nearing a deal for long-term target Martin Zubimendi from Real Sociedad. A top target for Arteta, Martin Zubimendi, may finally join Arsenal. According to AS, Zubimendi is ‘very close’ to accepting a pre-agreement for a summer move to the Emirates.

Barcelona, once competing with Arsenal, have reportedly shifted focus away from Zubimendi, who possesses a €60 million (£52m) release clause.

The Telegraph reports Everton’s willingness to sell Amadou Onana for £50m this month. Gunners, long linked with the midfielder, now faces competition from Newcastle. Everton, confronted with a potential second points deduction, is at risk of relegation, adding urgency to player transfers.

Arsenal gives updates on Emile Smith Rowe situation

Gunners rejected West Ham’s loan request for Emile Smith Rowe, the playmaker who is currently a squad player. The Daily Mail reports the unsuccessful offer, prompting West Ham to shift focus to Kalvin Phillips, aiming to leave Manchester City.

Emile Smith Rowe, who fell down the pecking order at the Emirates, was on his way with a potential move. However, Arsenal manager Arteta expressed contentment, stating, “I’m really happy with Emile. He’s on the right trajectory, settled, and training well.”
