Arsenal transfer news: Gyokeres move, Calafiori agreement, Eberechi Eze, and Amadou Onana update as Edu Gaspar turns attention towards more incoming signings following the David Raya deal…



Arsenal’s transfer activity heats up with Gyokeres move, Calafiori agreement, and Eberechi Eze update as Edu Gaspar shifts focus to more incoming players following David Raya deal.


Arsenal’s next transfer move confirmed after sealing a £28m deal.


Mikel Arteta and Edu Gaspar are busy in the transfer market, looking to offload players and bring in new faces after securing David Raya’s arrival.


Welcome to the transfer party, Arsenal. The club has finally made a move this summer, but fans have been waiting for this moment for quite some time.


The potential permanent transfer of David Raya, who was on loan from Brentford last season, has been in the works for months now.


With almost a month gone since the transfer window opened, Arsenal still have a lot of work to do. As the saying goes, it’s not about how you start but how you finish. Arsenal will be hoping to wrap up their business quickly and efficiently.


The most successful clubs, like Arsenal in the last two-and-a-half years, avoid getting caught up in the last-minute rush of the transfer window.


With several tasks at hand – such as securing a new striker and central midfielder, and potentially a left-back/centre-back if the talks involving Riccardo Calafiori are any indication – it appears to be a hectic period for the Gunners.


As they prepare to begin pre-season training soon, players returning from international duties will test Mikel Arteta’s managerial abilities.


Following that, the team will head to the USA for a tour and friendly matches to prepare for the upcoming season and the competitive Premier League title race.


What will the squad look like at the start of the season?

How will it evolve by the end of the transfer window?

At this point, all we can confirm is that Raya will be part of the team, although that was already expected.


Arsenal is taking a patient approach this transfer window, focusing on strengthening the squad’s foundation rather than making rushed decisions.


Arteta’s squad already has a high ceiling and is on the rise, so the priority is to raise the floor by improving squad players and rotational options.


However, the lack of a new striker could hinder the team’s progress. While Kai Havertz has shown his value, the coach still sees him primarily as a midfielder.


To address the goal-scoring issues, Arsenal is looking for solutions. Victor Osimhen is a proven option, but signing him would require careful consideration of the team’s structure.


Viktor Gyokeres appears to be the second choice currently, and he falls significantly short of Osimnhen despite the high price tag of over £85 million for either player.


Midfield may not be a top priority for Arsenal, but it could see significant changes in terms of sales.If Thomas Partey departs, a new defensive midfielder will be necessary.


While Amadou Onana is a strong contender, there is no immediate urgency to strengthen the midfield unless both Fabio Vieira and Emile Smith Rowe leave. However, this scenario seems unlikely at this point.


Arsenal has made commendable progress in competing with Manchester City in the last two seasons.


Under Mikel Arteta’s guidance, the team has shown tangible improvements each year, indicating that they are on the right path to potentially end Pep Guardiola’s era of dominance.


To usher in a new era in the Premier League, it is clear that acquiring a center-forward is crucial.


The Gunners’ attacking line is notably weaker compared to City, and while Kai Havertz showed promise last season, the absence of another goal-scorer ultimately held Arsenal back in their quest for success.


Given Havertz’s impressive performances, I am inclined to consider the risky move of bringing in Sporting’s Viktor Gyokeres.


The gamble lies in whether the Swede can adapt to the Premier League, but with 43 goals last season, he may be worth the risk.


If the 26-year-old replicates his success with Lisbon next season, Arsenal may find themselves priced out of a deal for Gyokeres and forced to explore other options.


Making a bold move for the former Coventry City player could be the key difference between settling for second place and clinching the title.


Arsenal has finally made some significant moves in the market, which is a welcome development. This should help calm down the annual panic among supporters who tend to get anxious when summer plans are not completed by July.


The youth team is receiving a much-needed injection of quality, with more improvements expected in the upcoming months.


Additionally, a deal for Raya at the senior level is on the horizon, and there is growing interest in the talented Riccardo Calafiori. Arsenal’s approach has been patient, focusing on quality over rushed decisions.


As the Euros and Copa America reach their final stages, we can anticipate more buzz surrounding Arsenal’s transfer activities.


Arsenal is still in need of a forward and central midfielder this summer. However, the lack of standout candidates in both positions may lead to the club waiting for the right opportunities to arise before making a move.


At this point, it seems more likely that Arsenal will prioritize signing a wide player over a center-forward, especially since suitable striker options are limited.


While specific names are hard to pinpoint, potential opportunities may arise at Bayern Munich as they look to strengthen their flanks.


After narrowly missing out on the Premier League title in consecutive seasons, Arsenal faces a challenging task in finding upgrades for their starting lineup.


There are few positions where an obvious improvement is readily available.


If Riccardo Calafiori is linked, the priority may not necessarily be defensive reinforcement unless Jakub Kiwior and Oleksandr Zinchenko depart. In that case, acquiring the Italian defender would be a wise move.


In the midfield, if Thomas Partey is set to be sold, a replacement capable of starting for the Gunners should be sought. Alternatively, a top-class attacker who can play as a No.9 and challenge Havertz and Jesus should be pursued.


While Alexander Isak is the preferred choice, Victor Osimhen could be a more feasible option.
