Soon to be Premier League free agents that Arsenal can sign this summer

It is quite clear that we are entering a new phase in the economics of football, it could be some time before clubs are able to spend extravagantly and bargains will be the order of the day.

Snapping up a quality player on a free is as economical as one can get and with wages also expected to be curtailed going forward then players about to become free agents will be highly coveted.

Here are just a few that Mikel Arteta could consider once the transfer window opens up.

Ryan Fraser
Reports have linked Fraser with a move to the Emirates for a long time and the links last season even affected him during this campaign.

He could be a fine squad player that should provide the assists that will be needed next season.

Willian 
Reports have tipped Willian to leave Chelsea after seven years of service and signing him would be a major coup for us.

The Brazilian would walk straight into this Arsenal team and he would bring a new dimension to our attack.

Willy Caballero
Caballero is at the end of his Chelsea spell and I think he is a good option for a second choice goalie.

He has shown great ability at stopping spot-kicks and we might just need him in the Cup competitions.

David Silva
Silva is set to leave Manchester City and he will leave the Etihad as a legend.

He still has a few more years left in him and I suspect that he wants to play in another country.

Mikel Arteta should convince him to join us as he can become a catalyst for the team next season.

Matty Longstaff
Longstaff has just one senior season under his belt, but the midfielder has shown that he can become a Premier League star.

He scored twice against Manchester United this season and he can become a better player under Mikel Arteta.

John Lundstram
Lundstram has been delivering on a weekly basis, however, I expect Sheffield United to do all they can to keep him, but Arsenal can land him by matching their offer or making him a better one.

    silva is 33yo and why do we sign and ageing cabellero to play 2nd choice gk?

  2. ThirdManJW says:

    I would take Fraser, Longstaff, and Lundstam as they all have age on their side, and would be very hungry to succeed at a big club. They have potential, whereas the others are aging, although still decent players.

    Coronavirus has already wiped billions off football, it’s likely we’ll return to 1980’s wages once next season arrives.
    Today’s 500k per week contracts are no longer justified when the season can be interrupted for as long as it already has.
    Point is that it just became harder to afford to sign anyone

      Sounds horrid but a club the size of arsenal should be able to capitalise on this and get some fantastic deals done. Player exchanges will become more common and we do have done players here that aren’t exactly performing here but could do wonders in a different league. Torriera, Lacazette, Xhaka, Bellerin could be key pawns in getting what we want.
