Arsenal determined to agree deal for Villarreal No.11 forward

Arsenal target Samuel Chukwueze could be available for €40m next summer. The London giants are keen to sign the 23-year-old forward from Villarreal as the Spanish coach eyes footballers that add quality to his squad. The Gunners stay linked with a host of attackers, and the club will pursue a few in the coming windows.

The Gunners earmarked their rebuilding project under the acute eye of Mikel Arteta two summers ago. After making crucial additions such as White, Ramsdale, and Odegaard, Arsenal added more in the window before this campaign.

While those footballers have made the starting eleven a strong unit, there is much more needed to bolster squad depth. Mikel Arteta’s men currently lead the charts in the PL. But there are concerns their title challenge might crumble without quality footballers on the bench.

The likes of Marquinhos and Nelson still need to bring consistency to their game and help the Gunners in cup and Europa League matches. Mikel Arteta has relied heavily on Martinelli and Saka to fortify the wing positions, while Smith Rowe’s early injury has not helped matters.

Chukwueze’s name is the latest on the London club’s shortlist. Samuel has proved his worth this campaign with commendable displays off the bench. Nigeria international is the kind of footballer Mikel Arteta seeks, and the Nigerian winger could be available for €40m next summer.
