With the 2023/24 campaign nearly over, Arsenal are expecting another very busy summer transfer window ahead of next season. Many incomings/outgoings are set to happen over the next few months which could see some current Gunners stars change shirt numbers this summer.

Arsenal remain in the Premier League title race with two games to go this season. It’s an improvement on the 2022/23 campaign however it still remains in Manchester City’s hands. If Pep Guardiola’s side win their two remaining games then they will be crowned Premier League champions for the fourth consecutive season.

Mikel Arteta is looking to bridge the gap to his former club in the transfer market ever further this summer. The Gunners are expecting to have a significant transfer budget in order to improve the squad once again.


One player very likely to leave North London this summer is goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale. The 25-year-old has been restricted to just six Premier League appearances this season, following the addition of David Raya from Brentford.

David Raya is Mikel Arteta’s number one for the foreseeable future, which has left Ramsdale on the lookout for a new club. Newcastle United and Chelsea are both very interested in the England international.

If Aaron Ramsdale does leave Arsenal this summer, it will leave the number one shirt free, which David Raya is expected to want ahead of next season.

Although the Gunners are expected to sign a new goalkeeper, David Raya will remain Mikel Arteta’s first choice, with the new addition playing a more back-up role.

The Gunners are currently targeting three players to replace Aaron Ramsdale. Former Gunner Wojciech Szczesny is at the top of the list, with Brighton goalkeeper Jason Steele and Ajax goalkeeper Diant Ramaj also being considered.
