‘Arsenal will be busy’ – Fabrizio Romano claims there is more signings coming

Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Arsenal are not done signing players this summer, claiming he is ‘sure’ we will add one or two more this month.

The Gunners have already completed deals for five signings, with Marquinhos, Fabio Vieira, Matt Turner, Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko having joined the club on permanent deals, but things have slowed over the past fortnight.

With the Premier League season set to kick off when we take on Crystal Palace on Friday, some have been led to believe that our transfer business is to be wrapped up soon, but Romano insists that we should still expect one or two more additions before the window shuts.

Fabrizio told GiveMeSport: “It will take some time but I’m sure Arsenal will be busy in August with one or two more signings, it depends on the opportunities or outgoings, though.”

It makes sense that further signings should depend on outgoings, with the likes of Nicolas Pepe and Ainsley Maitland-Niles yet to be moved on. Lucas Torreira looks set to leave, while Leno was today confirmed as joining Fulham, which could already mean that we have room to bring in one more currently.

I wouldn’t be shocked to see a new goalkeeper brought in as third-choice, although Karl Hein could well be given the role in the squad.

If we were to bring in two signings, which positions do you think should be the priority?

  1. CM or CDM, and someone able to play on the wing or as backup striker.

    However rumors seem to point to a winger, but unless we move Pepe it’s too hard to see it getting done.

    Martinelli
    Saka
    Pepe
    ESR
    Marquinos
    Nelson

    Assuming Vieira is backup to Odegaard. Otherwise too many in winger positions.

    1. We need a central midfielder like Tielsman first to complete the team balance.
      Terminate Pepe’s contract to leave space for incoming and let Balogun on loan.

    1. I strongly think we need a CM different from Xhaka & Partney. The two are both a bit slow.
      I would go Tielemens and Gakpo to help Saka. Gakpo is very exciting.

  2. Bellerin
    Runnarsson
    Niles
    Pepe
    Mari
    Nelson
    Balogun
    Torreira

    These 8 players might be out before the transfer deadline day.

    Hopefully, that would bring at least 50 million pounds, if most of them are being sold.

    Cody Gakpo and a strong midfielder like Onana should be added before the window closes to make it the perfect window for us.

  3. Cm , agood back up of saka who can also operate as aforward and may be back up no.2 there we can compete 4 titles

  4. Two signings paramount to the team now are a right winger that can also play as a target man and a defensive midfielder.

    A very reasonable and practical option is right winger Lucas Barbosa a good presser of the ball from Santos, Brazil at 6ft 4 ins he is powerful and quick.
    The midfielder is Fabian Ruiz with a year left on his contract.

    Both deal could cost a combine of £40 mil.

  5. Just get Tielemans done. We only need a winger if Pepe leaves. We can use Martineli as a 3th choice back up striker. Easy.

  6. Guys my main concern is our backup goalkeeper, Turner

    I mean so far, I haven’t been convinced he is worth being in our club and choice for MLS goalkeeper is super strange to me, sure he will play cup games , which is sure way of exiting the games, judging by all I saw during our tour, his reflexes and saves.

    I think I rate the estonian, Runnerson over him

    1. Rúnarsson is Icelandic and is absolutely terrible. His acquisition was an embarrassment.

      Turner can at least do the basics of goalkeeping. Who knows about his distribution, composure with the ball, etc. though.

  7. Definitely could do with another midfielder who ideally is versatile enough to fill either defensive role. Another versatile and dependable goal scorer would be nice too. Obviously we need some outgoing business. Seems like that is starting to happen.

    Meanwhile, Karl Hein seems like a no-brainer as 3rd keeper and arguably even #2.

  8. Cm as aback for party n xhaka is reasonable since these two are prone to injuries can be a good solution like Tieleman or Gapko can fit well
