Speculation is building as we draw closer to the season’s end, and as usual Arsenal are the most talked about club when it comes to transfer business.
Riyad Mahrez is claimed to be holding Leicester to a previous agreement with manager Claudio Ranieri, which said that he would be allowed to leave the club this summer. Us and Spurs are claimed to be favourites for his signature, and if he could find a level close to that of last season, he could be a huge addition for our club moving forward.
Arda Turan is another player who looks likely to quit his club in the coming window, having started only 23 league matches since joining two summers ago. His future is believed to depend on who comes in to replace Luis Enrique in the summer, and the prospect is not believed to be good. He is claimed to favour the Premier League over a move to Italy or China, and he has previously talked of a switch to Arsenal.
Rui Patricio is the another being linked with a switch to the Emirates this summer, with question marks being raised over Petr Cech this term, as well as David Ospina believed to be pushing to leave. The shot-stopper played a key role in helping Portugal to win the European Championships last summer. Us and Man City are claimed to be very interested in signing him.
Arsene Wenger is another strongly talked about subject, and he seems to be unsure whether to step-down this summer or not. A key factor in his decision may well be if the club can find a potential replacement for him, and one may be set to come available. Thomas Tuchel is claimed to have fallen out with Borussia Dortmund’s CEO due to his decisions during the Champions league quarter-finals, and he could well leave.
Can you imagine any of these targets in an Arsenal top? Would Tuchel be a good fit to replace Wenger?
