Arsenal are closing in on signing some of the finest players in Europe this summer. They’re currently linked to seven players but it seems, Mikel Arteta might just sign four more players to further strengthen his team that recently lifted the FA Cup for the 14th time in history.
According to Sky Sports, Mikel Arteta wants a central defender, a defensive midfielder, an attacking midfielder and a left sided winger.
Gabriel Magalhaes– According to Daily Mail, Europe’s super club PSG and Manchester City have just contacted Lille and the representatives of Gabriel Magalhaes to discuss an improved bid and wages for Gabriel Magalhaes.
The player was expected to undergo his medical with Arsenal today before signing a five year deal but with City and PSG showing interest in him, the French defender might simply pause the move and wait until he gets deal from a Champions League club.
Philippe Coutinho– Barcelona flop Philippe Coutinho is considering joining Arsenal this summer. The Brazilian is currently on loan with Bayern Munich who have a 80% chance of winning their first Champions League trophy since 2013 against PSG.
Houssem Aouar– According to L’Equipe, Arsenal have offered their embattled midfielder Matteo Guendouzi plus £20m to sign Aouar which was sadly rejected.
Lyon values Aouar in the region of £54m having helped the club reach the Champions League Semi Final. His multiple skill sets coupled with his age gives Lyon the leverage to make serious money off him from interested suitors like Real Madrid, PSG and Roma.
Arsenal though are hoping to improve the bid by offering more money plus player for the talented midfielder.
