In the aftermath of their Champions League exit, Arsenal have now shifted their focus to reinforcing the strike force, with manager Mikel Arteta set to receive significant funds for squad enhancement.

Despite their European disappointment, Arteta has steered the Gunners to an impressive turnaround in form, remaining contenders in the title race. Their elimination from the Champions League, their first quarter-final appearance in 14 years, came down to narrow margins. Now, Arsenal identifies securing a new striker and winger as top priorities in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Among the targets on Arsenal’s radar are Sporting Lisbon’s centre forward Viktor Gyokeres, RB Leipzig’s Benjamin Sesko, and long-time admirer Alexander Isak, although Newcastle’s reluctance to sell may complicate matters. The Gunners also have their sights set on Wolves’ winger Pedro Neto as their primary wide player target, with Athletic Bilbao’s Nico Williams also under consideration.


Additionally, Arsenal aim to strengthen their midfield with the acquisition of Real Sociedad’s Martin Zubimendi to partner with Declan Rice. However, their immediate focus remains on bolstering their forward line, with interest in Brentford’s Ivan Toney waning due to Kai Havertz’s standout performances this season.

Injuries and fatigue have exposed Arsenal’s lack of depth in attack, highlighting the need for additional quality options. The club is keen to avoid over-reliance on Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli, both of whom have shouldered heavy burdens this season. A new top-tier winger would not only provide competition but also alleviate the strain on existing players.

Furthermore, Arsenal’s prudent financial management, demonstrated by their restraint in the January transfer window, positions them well for a significant spending spree this summer. This strategic approach effectively resets their transfer budget, offering fresh opportunities for squad overhaul.

As they plan for reinforcements, Arsenal also anticipates departures from their current squad. Forward Eddie Nketiah is expected to attract offers, with Crystal Palace reportedly among the interested parties. The futures of Aaron Ramsdale and Emile Smith Rowe are also subject to speculation, while decisions regarding Reiss Nelson and Leandro Trossard hinge on Arsenal’s wide options overhaul.

Despite ongoing negotiations being on hold amidst the busy season, Arsenal remain steadfast in their support for Arteta, whom they regard as one of the premier young coaches in global football. The club is poised to intensify efforts to secure Arteta’s long-term future, recognizing his pivotal role in their ambitious project.
