According to a recent report from Football.London, Arsenal Technical director Edu Gasper is working immensely alongside Mikel Arteta to finalize five deals on or before the summer transfer window.
Once again, we’re expecting to see quite a number of changes when the summer window opens up.
There is still some deadwood to be shifted from the club, a number of problem players to be sorted and new players to be brought in.
With less than 18 months left in Lacazette’s contract, the Gunners will be looking to persuade the striker into a long term contract renewal.
In a situation where the French International doesn’t renew his contract, Arsenal will be forced to sell him at a fair price in the summer.
It is unlikely that Lucas Torreira will see his loan move with Atletico Madrid turn into a permanent move but he won’t be coming back to Arsenal.
As a result, either a new loan or a permanent deal needs to be found with plenty of interest reportedly coming from Italy.
Arsenal have been linked with a couple of centre forwards as they look for an Alexandre Lacazette replacement.
Top of the list at the minute seems to be Celtic’s Odsonne Edouard but they’ve also been linked with Andre Silva.
Rumour has it that Hector Bellerin wanted to leave last summer but Mikel Arteta talked him into staying another season. Now, sadly, it seems like the former Barcelona youngster’s time at the club is up.
According to recent reports from the Italian media, Juventus are heavily linked with a move for the full back.
Arsenal have been recently linked with a move for young Brighton full back Tariq Lamptey.
The young Englishman is seen as the potential replacement to Hector Bellerin if he leaves.
