White and Ramsdale are just two of seven potential new players Arsenal could sign

This will be an important summer for Arsenal as they look to add new players to their squad whilst getting rid of some of their current options.

The Gunners remain committed to ensuring they become one of the top four clubs in England again.

Mikel Arteta is the manager they have chosen to overhaul their current squad and the former midfielder will get all the backing he needs to achieve that goal.

Two players whom they have been linked to this summer are Ben White and Aaron Ramsdale, but more are expected to join the duo at the Emirates this summer.

The Athletic says Arteta believes landing both players would help him shore up his leaky defence, but more signings are expected to follow them into the club.

They have already signed Nuno Tavares from Benfica and could complete the signing of Albert Sambi Lokonga in a matter of days.

Arsenal is confident of keeping Emile Smith Rowe despite interest from Aston Villa and they are still looking to bring Martin Odegaard back to the club from Real Madrid.

A right-back and another central midfielder to partner Thomas Partey in midfield might still join the Gunners before this transfer window closes.

    The rumours are always crazy during transfer window but this year they seem to be on steroids! If one believes a fraction of them then Arsenal are simply throwing jelly at a wall and seeing what sticks. Best approach is not to get too excited about any of them.

    My only hope is that when the window shuts we can see a logic to the comings and goings and that Edu and Arteta can say, hand on hearts, that they have executed a plan. That they made a shortlist and stuck to it.

    For me, the only rumours that rang true for me a from the start are Lokanga, White, Odegaard and Koopmeiners.

      Would be happy with those four, add maddison mulder and Sam Johnstone to that would be a pretty decent window.

      Leno

      Muldur White Gabriel Tierney

      Partey Koopmeiners

      Saka Maddison Pepe

      Voyageur, there are so many rumours due to so many clubs being in dire financial straits and having to sell players. Clubs with a war chest can take advantage of this situation to upgrade their squads. Hopefully Kroenke can take a short term loan to provide Arsenal that war chest.

    Want Odegaard back!!!! Instead of going for Madison, I will prefer Odegaard. Let’s just keep watching.

    Ramsdale to ‘shore up the leaky defence’ 😳 think I need to sit down!

    1. Declan says:

      I’ll be sitting next to you Sue!

      1. gooner4life says:

        I think we need to lie down!!!

    2. Ozziegunner says:

      Sheffield United are asking too much for Ramsdale and he doesn’t want to come to Arsenal to compete with Leno.
      Andre Onana would have been ideal, or transfer of Mat Ryan; however “those ships have sailed and Arsenal missed the boat”.

  4. Gunners4life says:

    We were really struggling up front and had to over rely on Saka and ESR. So we should get one FW. My choice would be Griezmann!!
    Griezmann in, Laca out, Nketiah out.

    Worried about the kind of transfer fee associated with each of the players, especially after watching the investments on Pepe, Partey, Saliba and Willian not improving our league standings in the past couple of seasons along with the uncertainties surrounding the club’s future.

  6. JW says:

    How soon we forget!!
    Odegaard is tooooooo slight to play the number 10 role for a full premier league season. Plus, he will get in ESR’s way.

    If I were ESR I would submit a transfer request immediately, and NOT tie myself to Arteta for 5 years.
    I think they only want to retain him to keep the fan-base quiet!!! Let’s see how many games he starts.
    Incidentally, I read that Arteta said ESR needs to score more goals to improve. I wonder if he said the same thing to Auba, Lacazette, Pepe, Willian, Saka, Nellie and Eddie N!
    The only player he could not have said that to is surely Willock, and despite his goals, he will probably be lucky to get a game off the bench.

    My faith in this manager is waning by the month.

    I have a very bad feeling that this transfer window, despite all the hype, will not see Arsenal in the top 4 at the end of the season, and if we finish in the Europa League spots it will be more by luck than judgment.

    Mr Arteta please give me a reason to believe!!!!!! Forget Ben White and buy Bissouma and a top quality goal-scorer instead instead

    1. Gogo says:

      I do not understand your point but of you are suggesting we don’t sign another player to support an injury prone ESR then you must be on your own.

      Ifwe get Ødegaard in its a plus

      1. Ozziegunner says:

        Anyone decent would be a plus, otherwise Arsenal risk turning ESR into another crock by playing him into the ground, like Luke Wilshere

    2. Gunners4life says:

      Maybe we can get Messi. He can play in the center and on the right, so when ESR is fit we can move him to the right. Hopefully he has not signed contract with barcelona yet..

    It is unfortunate we all love and support club that likes to torture his fan base. Why is it to hard for them to debunk all this rumours. We have been linked to almost 100 new players and the club is acting like they don’t know it and what effect this will have on the fans. Every new day comes with another link with another player. Is the club that confused to know which players they want. I’m not expecting them to tell us the their targeted players but they let us know players they are not looking at. This will put a stop to all the fabricated lies and deceit from the media.

  8. Emmanuel says:

    Let hope so if not arteta will make away for as to feel happy

  9. Voyageur says:

    So you want Arsenal to confirm all the rumours that aren’t true but not the ones that are true.

    Think about that for awhile and get back to us.

        Gooner4life shoukd get over Gunner for life.

        1. Gunners4life says:

          Thanks for the support mate

  11. Ķalabalalwa says:

    Why ignoring bisouma link? We need someone with epl experience .

    1. Ozziegunner says:

      Yves Bissouma makes sense to everyone, but the powers that be at Arsenal. The Club has bought the wrong player from Brighton & Hove Albion. They should have asked for a price on two players, if they wanted Ben White.
