Arsenal Ready To Land Two Long-Term Targets To Fulfil Arteta’s Wish

Despite an excessively successful summer for Arsenal, there may be some dissatisfaction within London Colney due to the club’s inability to add a player before the deadline on Thursday. Mikel Arteta was only one player shy of getting the 22 outfielders he wanted, and now he’s got 21 instead.

Following Mohamed Elneny’s injury, the Gunners’ intentions are said to have shifted in the final 72 hours of the window. Since Nicolas Pepe’s loan agreement had ended, it was anticipated that Arteta and Edu would concentrate their efforts on finding a new winger. However, when Elneny joined Thomas Partey in the treatment room, there became an urgent need to bolster a suddenly light midfield.

 

Gunners247 is aware that attempts were made to sign Douglas Luiz from Aston Villa for the Emirates Stadium in the closing hours of the transfer window, but time ran out after three bids were rejected. Arsenal looked into a deal for the talented Palmeiras player Danilo, but again, any hopes were dashed due to the Brazilian team’s reluctance to part with him.

Arsenal conceded defeat in its ambitions, but there is still a chance that one or possibly both of the transactions might be reevaluated in January. This is due to the possibility that Danilo would once again spark interest once the winter market starts, as gunners247.com is aware.

The fact that Palmeiras are now playing in the Copa Libertadores semifinals is one of the key reasons they don’t want to lose the 21-year-old. Additionally, they were unable to replace him since the Brazilian transfer window had already closed.

Technical director Edu has had his eye on Danilo since he initially expressed interest in the player earlier this year. Given the absence of defensive-minded alternatives for Arteta as a result of the injuries to Partey and Elneny, his ability to play as a No. 6 and advance the game suits the profile of player the club is seeking.

Danilo is regarded as one of the most brilliant young midfielders in Brazil and an important player for his team; yet, Palmeiras may grudgingly alter their stance. If the Gunners are successful in their efforts to bolster their midfield, Mykhaylo Mudryk of Shakhtar Donetsk will be another possibility for them in January.

The Athletic claims that the Arsenal recruitment staff addressed the Ukrainian international after learning positive things about his talent and demeanor. The fact that Mudryk’s representatives were contacted and that a formal offer may have been made prior to the midfield injuries already described is also acknowledged.

Suppose Arteta and Edu do indeed decide to push for reinforcements once again come January. In that case, they find themselves in a relatively strong position, having already established contact with potential candidates throughout the summer.
