It was a foregone conclusion that there would be loads of Arsenal transfer rumours this summer after the announcement of our new manager, and the latest good news is that the Kroenke’s in their good grace have allocated an extra 20m GBP to Unai Emery to use in the transfer market, on top of whatever he can generate from sales.
But who is he going to spend his riches on? We already know that the biggest rumour so far is about the Turkish centre-back Caglar Soyuncu, as we must surely be getting a new defender or two, and another that won’t go away is the link with Sokratis..
We have also been assured that Emery is still very keen on Nice’s Jean Michael Seri, who you can read about here and see a video to find out why he is such in demand. I certainly wouldn’t say no to him…
But Arsenal are also reportedly interested in signing the Roma midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini, although I doubt very much that we would be trying to get him and Seri. Surely we only need one top midfielder in this window?
There are also reports that Emery wants to bring in the Juventus defender Stephan Lichtsteiner, but does he count if he comes in as free transfer?
This is still early days and we are sure to be hearing of many more links in the next couple of months, but which of these ones would you particularly like us to get in right now?
