In what promises to be a busy summer for Arsenal, discussions are already underway regarding potential signings to bolster the squad ahead of next season’s Champions League push. 

Legendary former Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman and Lynsey Hooper, his co-host on the Seaman Says Podcast, recently weighed in on the Gunners’ transfer strategy.

Addressing the team’s strengths and weaknesses, Seaman and Hooper identified a couple of key areas where Arsenal need reinforcements. One name that emerged in their conversation was Murillo from Nottingham Forest, whom Hooper touted as a potential signing for the North London club.

Seaman enthusiastically endorsed the suggestion, expressing his intent to relay it to Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta at the earliest opportunity. “Get Murillo,” Seaman emphasised during the podcast. “If I could give you one tip this summer, it would be to get Murillo.”

Despite Nottingham Forest’s mixed performances this season, Murillo has stood out as a top prospect. The Brazilian defender possesses exceptional ball-playing abilities and the potential to blossom under the right guidance. 


While acknowledging Murillo’s need for refinement in defensive discipline, Seaman highlighted Arteta’s coaching acumen as a potentially transformative factor for the player.

However, amidst discussions of potential defensive reinforcements, questions arise regarding the necessity of another defender at the Emirates. With players like Jurrien Timber, Jakub Kiwior, and Ben White capable of filling in for William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes, some argue that Arsenal’s resources might be better directed elsewhere.

The debate surrounding Murillo’s potential move to Arsenal shows the complexities of the transfer market and the myriad considerations involved in squad building. While the Brazilian defender undeniably possesses the talent worthy of a big move, whether Arsenal will pursue his signature remains uncertain as the summer transfer window approaches.
