Arsenal’s bold move with a £166m double transfer deal could finally end title drought…



Arsenal’s ambitious £166m double transfer deal could potentially bring an end to their title drought.


Arsenal’s second-place finish in the Premier League has left them eager to make significant moves in the upcoming transfer window.


Despite their commendable efforts, the two-point difference between them and the champions feels insurmountable.


Whether it was their stumble against Aston Villa or the perplexing losses to West Ham and Fulham in that fateful week between Christmas and New Year, or even the five draws they endured throughout the season, the fact remains that Mikel Arteta’s team fell short once again.


This disappointment has paved the way for a potential summer rebuild or, at the very least, some strategic tinkering and reinforcement.


Despite their recent improvements, Arsenal still have some deficiencies in key areas that need to be addressed. It is highly likely that rectifying these flaws will be their top priority in the upcoming weeks and months.


Perhaps the most glaring area that requires improvement is the attacking front. Neither Gabriel Jesus nor Eddie Nketiah exude the qualities of a dominant center forward who can lead Arsenal to a title on his own.


It is evident that a top-notch striker could significantly narrow the gap with Manchester City.


Numerous names have been circulating lately, but one that stands out is Sporting CP’s Viktor Gyokeres. The Swedish player has made a remarkable impact in Portugal within just a year, boasting an impressive record of 43 goals and 15 assists in 49 matches this season.


His exceptional performance is evident in his £86 million release clause. If Arsenal is truly committed to acquiring a reliable and proven goal scorer, they must be prepared to make a substantial investment.


With his strength, precision, and entering his prime, Gyokeres could be the ideal choice for Arteta.


However, there is another signing that the Spaniard is eager to secure. Arsenal is also expected to strengthen their midfield this summer, although their options in that area are not as straightforward.


While Douglas Luiz has been a long-term target, the chances of him leaving Aston Villa have significantly decreased since Unai Emery’s team secured a place in the Champions League next season.


Another frequently mentioned name is Martin Zubamendi, but he is reportedly content at Real Sociedad and intends to reunite with former manager Xabi Alonso in the near future.


This situation may push Arsenal to pursue Newcastle United’s key player, Bruno Guimaraes.


This is not necessarily a negative development, especially considering the impact the Brazilian has made in the Premier League since joining Newcastle.


However, it is worth noting that the Magpies are reportedly unwilling to consider any offers below £80 million for him, making him an expensive acquisition, similar to Gyokeres.


Newcastle’s willingness to entertain a potential sale comes as a surprise to many, highlighting unforeseen opportunities. Just like the Swedish striker, quality comes at a price.


Arsenal must carefully assess their current position, future goals, and financial commitment required to achieve success.


Investing £166 million in Gyokeres and Guimaraes could potentially transform them into Premier League champions. Some may argue that it’s a worthwhile investment.
