In a bid to fortify their squad for the upcoming season, Arsenal are preparing for substantial investments, with multiple positions under scrutiny as Mikel Arteta seeks to revamp the team. 

However, the move has prompted questions regarding the necessity of further signings and the potential replacement of players who joined the club as recently as two years ago.

Reports suggest that Brazilian forward Gabriel Jesus could be among those departing, as the club is reportedly open to offers for his services. Similarly, Oleksandr Zinchenko, who has just two years remaining on his contract, appears to be facing an uncertain future with little indication of contract renewal talks in sight.

The Gunners have identified five key areas for reinforcement in the summer transfer window: central midfield, winger, centre-forward, defence, and goalkeeper. These needs stem from expected departures and the desire to elevate the team’s performance.

Notably, Arsenal’s £38 million investment in Jurrien Timber underscores their commitment to securing top talent. Zinchenko himself has acknowledged the competition within the squad, admitting that he may not match up to the Dutchman’s standards.


Arteta’s ambitions extend beyond domestic success, as Arsenal aim to capitalise on potential transitions at rival clubs, such as Liverpool and Manchester City. With an eye on long-term consistency, the club is determined to bolster its ranks with quality additions capable of challenging for titles.

While acknowledging the impact of previous recruitment efforts, Arsenal emphasises the necessity of adapting to evolving standards and ambitions. Players who were instrumental in the team’s earlier phases may find themselves surplus to requirements as the club aims higher.

Key areas of focus include midfield reinforcement to complement existing talents like Thomas Partey and Declan Rice, as well as bolstering defensive options and securing a capable goalkeeper. The departure of certain players, such as Jesus, could prompt a reevaluation of priorities, with a younger, taller striker emerging as a potential target.

Arteta’s emphasis on quality over quantity shows the club’s commitment to fielding a competitive squad capable of delivering results consistently.
