Report – Arsenal’s next two transfer moves revealed

Arsenal will look to sign two midfielders after they managed to get Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on a new deal.

The Gunners have had a busy transfer window, but their most important piece of business his summer is getting Aubameyang on a new deal.

The Gabon striker has just signed a new long-term contract to remain at the Emirates, and that will be a major boost in their bid to return to the Champions League next season.

They have landed Willian and Gabriel Magalhaes in this transfer window. Both players made their debut in the club’s first Premier League game against Fulham, and they impressed.

That will give Arsenal the confidence to pursue even more deals, and Mirror Sports claims that the Gunners are plotting to sign two new midfielders before the transfer window closes.

The report confirms that Thomas Partey and Houssem Aouar remain their top targets. Partey has been the club’s long–term midfield target, but they need to sell some of their players to raise fund before they can complete his transfer from Atletico Madrid.

Aouar is also available if they can put together the money that Lyon wants, believed to be in excess of £40m.

Arsenal has some players that they would like to sell, and the report claims that they might offload Hector Bellerin if the right offer comes in.

  1. Watched Aouar get sent off against Montpelier, but you could see his ability. Seems he has played his last game for Lyon. He is very mobile, creative and box to box, abd demands the ball. Looks a perfect Arsenal fit.

    1. 90 millions for both of them in today’s market is a bargain. But no backing in transfer from the owner is a joke. Hate kronke

  2. I have a feeling arsenal will only have enough to get in one. Especially when you do the maths.
    Soares Mari Gabriel William’s Salah and return of Saliba means an increase of salary with Mhkit Martinez Torriera and maybe Sokratis off our books.

    26m from Toerrira and Martinez (with 10m next season further from torino) means we need to hope we have 20m in the bank because 46m can get you only 1.

    1. I have a feeling we will have to pay the full amount for Partey, as for Aouar the talk is we can structure the deal over years to make it affordable, onto wages Miki 180k, has gone, Torreira 75k, Sokratis 92k, Mustafi 90k & Kola 100k could be gone, that’s £535k per week, don’t know about some of the wages for new signings but can’t see it being more than £535k plus in 8.5 months we lose Ozil’s big wage, unless we have a plan to get rid of him this summer?

      1. See your point on wages. Without matchday revenue– getting as many off the books as possible is tantamount before all TWs close. Fire sale if necessary.

        This would be the year to bring in both Aouar and Partey. Next year Partey is 29 and I’d be skeptical. Josh Kroenke needs to write a check– now– if Mikel asks him to.

        If it is only one of the two? Aouar is the one. Younger, more of what we could use this year to link up play. We know how to attack on the flanks. Need to pick some locks when teams sit deep.

  3. Cedric 65k Dani 50k Gabriel 35k 1st year (rises each year)
    Saliba 40k Willian 120k Mari (unknown) can’t imagine he’s on 100k so even if 60k that’s only a total of £370k per week, Emi & Miki gone 200k Torreira going 75k & if we lose either Mustafi or Sokratis that means we’re £5k a week better off, yes we have given Auba a new deal but again when Ozil goes in 2021 it frees up loads more cash for players wages, don’t forget we have a lot of academy players on less than 50k a week each, and if we sell/loan Kolasinac as well we could be better of wages wise,rough research but the figures look about right

  4. Rumours flying about that we’re looking into Ibrahim Sangare along with Spurs and others, Aour and Sangare could be the two, Sangare valued at at 10 mill, a lot younger than Partey, very similar player with a lot of potential and a lot cheaper, ultimate dream to put Sangare with Partey and Aour ahead of them, but think Partey price tag of 45 mill buy out fee up front could be the stumbling block,where as Sangare or Soumare another good dm, could be bought over staggered payments and cheaper, and players younger, what about Sangare, Soumare with Aour as another mouthwatering combination.

    1. Cuppers: I like the look of both Sangare and Soumare. I am quite impressed by Soumare’s dribbling on top of his tacking and passing abilities. Both much younger and cheaper than Partey.

  5. Aouar is the one we want,class player and still young,Partey would be a bonus but with Danni and Aouar in midfield and our strikers wow……
    And dont forget Ozil he could clean the players boots bring on the water bottles may as well do something for £350,000 a week.

  6. Sell….. Martinez
    Ozil (please)
    New striker
    Job done (top 4)

  7. Partey vs Sangare comparison

    27 – 22 (age)
    2 – 3.4 (tackles)
    1.4 – 1.6 (interceptions)
    1.4 – 1.9 (fouls)
    1.1 – 1.9 (clearances)
    0.9 – 1.6 (dribbled past)
    83% – 78% (passing)
    0.5 – 1.1 (key passes)
    45m – 8m (price)

    Stats-wise Sangare bodes well with Partey. Let’s not forget though Ligue 1 is probably worse league than La Liga, but then again Sangare played for a relegation team while Partey plays for Athletico.

    1. In a perfect futboling world AFC
      would sign BOTH Partey and
      Sangare to anchor the midfield.
      The Ivorian is honestly a younger,
      more athletic and technically
      superior Xhaka that is available
      for peanuts. I know MA LOVES
      Xhaka but Sangares potential to
      be one of the worlds best imho
      at that price would make the
      Swiss man more than expendable.

  8. If that is the case, Arsenal might as well go in for Sangare. Less costly, younger in age and the combination of Sangare and Aouar along with Ceballos would be ideal.

  9. How does Aour fit in to our current 3-4-3 system?Can someone explain where he would play, and at who’s expense?. No point in trying to sign him unless Arteta would then change how we are set up.

  10. Edward, he is an attacking midfielder.In the 3-4-3 system Arteta uses two sitting midfielders, so there is no room in that set up for Aour, unless he is played wide at the expense of Willian or Auba?It does not stack up and that is why I don’t think we will make a serious effort to sign Aouar.Partey, or someone like him would fit into the present set up very well and link up with Xhaka, but where does that leave Ceballos?I await developments with interest.

  11. If Aouar comes in, Arteta will certainly change his formation to a 4-3-3, with a combination of Partey/Aouar/Ceballos or Partey/Aouar/Xhaka or Partey/Aouar/AMN. AMN will come into picture because our fullbacks will be Bellerin and Tierney with Holding and Gabriel in the defence. We certainly have got to have creativity in the centre of the park.

    1. Personally, I wouldn’t sign Aouar now.
      We have a formation and great tactics from the manager that is getting us results and more so, competitive against the big six.
      I get he’s got about him but for me getting Partey would make us a better all round team.
      I can see more business being done in the winter window once we get some sellable players back from injury
