Fabrizio Romano insists ‘Champions League football is really important’ to Arsenal’s window

Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Arsenal summer transfer window will depend a lot on who signs for the club, with Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus one named who will be tough to sway without it.

The Gunners are being linked with a number of targets ahead of the coming transfer window, with at least one big name striker believed to be high on their wishlist, with a full-back, central midfielder and a winger also potential additions.

While much of our focus is believed to be on which striker we will be investing in, Romano insists that much of our transfer signings will depend on whether we can qualify for the Champions League, with us currently two points ahead of Tottenham with just four matches remaining.

He told his YouTube followers: “For Arsenal, it’s more than important [Champions League football] because from an economic point of view, but even because they’re already negotiating with some players.

“I’ll give you an example, Gabriel Jesus is a player they want to sign but to have Champions League football is really important for Arsenal to be attractive to this player and in negotiations with these players.”

While it seems almost common sense, not enough is being said about it where our transfer links are being mentioned. The pull of the Premier League could well prove to be enough for some targets, but the pool of players who would be willing to join will likely slim down depending on whether we can secure a place in the top-four or not, with some players such as Lautauro Martinez or Paulo Dybala as well as Osimhen potentially only willing to join a club in the elite European competition for next term.

Do you think we could struggle to sign the calibre of striker wanted if we fail to secure a CL spot?

    1. That’s not even painful than those who said top4 was never the target.
      So according to their logic, the board shouldn’t have to bother were we finish to spend since we are not supposed to be in top4.
      After all they spent well last summer despite finish 8th.

  1. I’m not a beleiver in reincarnation but sometimes i feel like i’ve been here before…..great men thinking alike me and my guys got similar thought.

  2. It could pose a challenge to sign the ideal players we want without champions league football.

    Though Arsenal is ahead of schedule, its paramount we land that top four spot and I will tell you why.

    1)Arsenal will be more attractive to marquee players.
    2)It will be a strong signal we intend to challenge the big boys again..
    3)The share pull of the champions league financially.
    4)It will strengthen the gaffer hand when negotiating the war chest.
    5)Even the blind would have seen real progress made.
    6)It would loosen the Koronke purse strings
    7 The harshest critics will begin to trus the process

    There is so much hinges on the top four directly and indirectly, you would me amaze

  3. With Champions league football this summer could well and truly be the start of something special. We are 5 or 6 players from being an contender for every competition. When everyone’s fit I feel only a first team cm, lw and cf are required and a back up rw,cm and left back.
    Tomiyasu Saliba Gabriel Tierney
    Odegard Madderson
    Saka Oisheim Diaby

    With Turner, Hackett, Cedric, White Holding, Xhaka, Bissouma, Martinelli, ESR, Nelson and Nkietah making up the rest of the squad.

  4. It seems that Fabrizio Romano has attended the Monty Python school of:

    “Stating The bleeding Obvious”

    An amazing statement!

    I would never have thought of that!

    Wow what a clever man!!!
