Opinion: Five Euro 2020 players Arsenal should consider this summer

Arsenal scouts watched Euro 2020 intently and that is one reason they have been linked with a move for Manuel Locatelli this summer.

They will struggle to win the race for the midfielder, but other players impressed in the competition who they can sign.

I watched most games and these players impressed me for their respective countries, let me know if I skipped a player you think we should consider signing.

Dani Olmo

Olmo was one of Spain’s brightest stars in the competition and he is leading the next generation of Spanish attackers.

He is currently on the books of RB Leipzig and his ability to play on the wing and through the middle will benefit Arsenal greatly.

Jérémy Doku

Doku kept Eden Hazard on the bench for much of the competition and breaking into the team of Roberto Martinez, who is fiercely loyal to his players, is no small feat.

The 19-year-old is an attacker that isn’t afraid to take on anyone and he is the type of player that Arsenal is missing at the moment.

Domenico Berardi

Berardi is a part of the Italian team that won the competition and the Sassuolo man is an attacker that would deliver at the Emirates.

He provided two assists in the competition.

Joakim Mæhle

Mæhle is another top player that shows how good the Atalanta scouting system is.

He is a right-back but played on the left-wing for Denmark in most of the competition, yet he scored twice and provided an assist in the competition.

Tomáš Vaclík

Vaclík was one of the most impressive goalkeepers in the competition as he helped the Czech Republic’s national team to reach the quarterfinals.

Arsenal needs a new second choice and the 32-year-old would be a solid backup to Bernd Leno.

  2. I should think but if I am not mistaken that Arsenal have a backup goalkepeer to Leno in Okowonko and Runarsson already on their books to begin the start of next season’s summer campaign with their trio goalkeepers.

    Therefore, I think if things work out according to plan as Arsenal have planned them to work out for them during this current summer transfer window in their goalkepeer upgrading exercise plans. I’ll want to think that Arsenal will not abandon their reported move to sign Onana this summer. But sign him to give the expected tough competition to Leno for a regular starting spot in the Arsenal goal when he start playing after he has completed his reduced fifa ban.

    Arsenal having already signed a backup LB this summer to replace Kolasinac. Who is expected to leave the club on loan or permanently this summer. And are looking to complete the signing of a new midfielder this summer very soon in Lokonga.

    But the club are looking to still be in need to do a new RB signing this summer. But whose signing should be an upgrade to what Bellerin brings to Arsenal R8 position. But if not, there is not point signing a new RB this summer who isn’t an upgrade to Bellerin.

    The Arsenal move to sign Ben White from Brighton this summer should come to fruition soon I will believe after the Euro 2020 tournament has ended. But where he wasn’t used to play for England by Gareth Southgate the England Three Lions manager.

    But will Arsenal still pursue their quest to re-sign Odegaard on another loan deal or on the permanent basis this summer? Maybe Yes or No. But who the Real Madrid President is reported to have said, he could still be available for signing this summer as he could be deemed surpluse to requirements in the RM squad for their next season’s campaign. Or Arsenal will preferred to look elsewhere to do a new top quality signing upgrade to their midfield play maker position.

    Hoping that The mainstay Arsenal quartet strikers of Aubameyang, Lacazette, the want away Nketiah and Martinelli will incredibly come good for Arsenal in the PL and in the two Cup competitions next season scoring goals in sufficient number to win the treble for Arsenal.

    But what of if they fall short to score goals sufficiently to fail winning the treble or even the double or the title for Arsenal next season? More so if Arsenal take the risk to keep Nketiah in their team this summer against his with to leave the club.

    Which I think Arsenal should call off his bluffing the club to leave them by granting him his wish. But do an upgrade to him of a new top quality striker signing this summer to replace him.

  3. Considering our present deficiencies, the obvious list would include the following players, in this order: (1) DUMFRIES, (2) DONNARUMMA, (3) LOCATELLI, (4) WALKER AND (5) PHILLIPS…wild card Copa pick is Luis Diaz(Columbia/Porto)…I didn’t even contemplate obvious players like De Bruyne, Mbappe and Pedri(350M release clause)etc..as they’re obviously unattainable at the present moment

    1. From 5 which you mentioned, only Philips and Dumfries we can go for…
      Donnarumma is already signed by PSG
      Locatelli will join Juventus.
      And Walker? Out of Question…

      1. neither are officially signed by either club, as you have suggested, but I’m sure that will be the case in relatively short order…like I said, I only choose players who we could possibly acquire, not likely acquire, so it was primarily an exercise in wishful thinking

  4. – Olmo: Will limit Smith-Rowe, Willian, Willock and Nelson from playing in the CAM position

    – Doku: Would likely start ahead of Aubameyang, Martinelli, Willian, Nelson and Smith-Rowe on the left wing

    – Berardi: I’d prefer Saka and Pepe

    – Mæhle: Looks good

    – Vaclík: Didn’t notice him

    1. That guy Doku is what we need on that our left wing, dude is too good to be held by just two players

  5. Attacker in belotti,CM in Ruben navals,RB in anybody good than belerin, we have enough and good young CB….we don’t need white, goalkeeper bring back Martinez

  6. A lot of Italian players defnitely ! I still cant believe Gary Neville said the Italians will struggle during tournament after how they started but gave England a better chance of winning. Italy made it to many finals this was only England’s second final wow what a sense of entitlement.
    The Italian team have star that Arsenal can recruit and Portugals Sanchez

  7. It’s unlikely for any Italian to play in PL after the showdown. Which is why I can only dream of Chiesa in an Arsenal shirt.

    Realistic targets would be:
    And probably someone strong on the attack like Schick.

  8. My team for Arsenal to sign from the just concluded Euros in order of priority

    1) Dumfries (Ned) : right back, a sure upgrade on Bellerin and will give stability to the right wing of the team especially with his balanced offensive and defensive game.

    2) Renato Sanchez (Por): Central Midfield, Xhaka’s replacement to play alongside Partey and drive the team forward with his abilities on retaining the ball and forward play.

    3) Dani Olmo (Spa): Attacking Midfield, this guy has been my AM players since watching him play for RBL last season and he did not live bellow expectations, a midfield trio of Partey, Sanchez and Olmo could be mouth watering and a dream come through for me

    4) Damsgaard (Den): Left Wing/ Center Forward, this lad is a huge talent and will love to have him as an option in our squad to provide more quality whether starting or coming from the bench.

    5) Vestergaard (Den): Central Defense, this is already a premier league proven defender with Southampton and showed class at the Euros with Denmark, big, strong and composed guy. Could be a great addition if Holding and Chambers were to leave.

    Not necessarily needed but other players I fell in love with were
    1) Doku (Bel)
    2) Spinazzola (Ita) this is arguably my player of the tournament prior his injury, he was joy to watch operating from left back

  9. I think Berardi should be the one to sign if we must to sign a new player at the Euro2020 competition.
