Arsenal transfer round-up – Walace, Sessegnon, Gundogan

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger today revealed that he is not looking to make major changes to his current squad before the new campagn, so we thought we’d look at the latest possible arrivals.

Borussia Dortmund’s Ilkay Gundogan is one of the players most heavily linked with a switch to a number of clubs, but is now claimed to have completed a move to Manchester City for the new term, although such an early deal appears unlikely at present.

Another player’s name who keeps popping up alongside our clubs is Ryan Sessegnon, who is flourishing with Fulham’s youth side and England’s Under-17s over the past year. The youngster turns 16 in May and could be set to join on a pre-contract agreement, and would be a great addition to our future contingent.

Midfielder Walace is somewhat of a new name to be touted as a future Gunner, and in reality the youngster would likely struggle to earn a work permit. The 21 year-old has become a regular in Brazil’s top division in recent seasons, but his Brazil Under-20 outings will not be enough to earn a work permit, and we may have to pay over the odds to retrieve a permit via an appeal.

These three midfielders have all been linked with a possible move to the Emirates around the time that Manchester City have been linked with a raid for our current duo Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Alex Ramsey. Obviously neither will be sold to one of our strong league rivals, but no doubt speculation will continue to grow.

How crucial is it that we bring in established stars this summer and not solely future potential players? Would Sessegnon be able to make an impact during the new campaign?

  1. Thank God I stopped watching Arsenal play after few games this season. Same thing happens every year. I will only start watching Arsenal play after Wenger resigns. I dont want to waste time with no excitement and predictable finish every year.

  2. Wenger’s latest comments about finishing below Spurs is not bad thing wants me to shut twitter too. Wenger resign = Best for Arsenal.

  3. If money were no object
    I would only keep
    Ozil, Bellerin and Koscielny.
    Most of the rest are
    not good enough to win the EPL
    and no where near good enough to win the ECL.

  4. The fans should forget about new signings the miser has just said he is happy with elneny,coquelin and iwobi and that there is no player in the market( yet man city just finalised gundogan’s transfer). The names they are peddling around is just to instigate the fans to buy season tickets.

  6. After reading the comments I find it ironically funny that some of you have the ordasity to call Wenger delusional! Lol a bunch of fifa 16 kids either in age or mentally
