Arsenal in pole position to sign 21-year-old Premier Liga winger

Arsenal could shelve plans to sign Mykhaylo Mudryk in winter and focus on bringing in a replacement for Jesus. The Brazilian centre-forward’s injury has left the Spanish manager short of a frontman, as Nketiah is the only available striker at the London club.

Gabriel suffered a severe injury during Brazil’s final group-stage match with Cameroon, and the centre-forward is set to stay sidelined for three months. The Gunners supporters are currently tensed knowing the importance of Jesus this campaign.

His five goals are not prolific numbers by any means. However, Gabriel has lifted the team and the displays to take them five points ahead in the PL standings. Losing him for many months will come as a blow for the Spanish coach in the title chase.

The report claims Mikel Arteta may shelve his original plans for the winter window owing to Jesus’ injury. Arsenal have been planning to add two new footballers in the next window, with a winger and a midfielder expected to arrive. The Gunners had stepped up their efforts to sign Mykhaylo Mudryk from Shakhtar Donetsk.

Ukraine international is reportedly available for £40m. But the report suggests Arsenal could consider shelving plans to add Mydruk and instead look to bring a replacement for Jesus. Mikel Arteta might consider signing a replacement signing if the right footballer becomes available. Nketiah will deputize and hope to rediscover his form from the end of last campaign.

Arsenal joined the race to sign €60m-rated Serie A midfielder

Arsenal will let their interest known for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic in winter and will go for the final kill. The 27-year-old midfielder has been on the radar of several big teams for quite a long time. The Gunners have steered themselves clear at the top with all their players chipping in with useful contributions in their jubilant title run this campaign.

Partey, Xhaka and Odegaard have been irreplaceable in the midfield. But the Spanish manager does not want any distraction in his aim and wants an extra pair of feet to provide some competition in the squad. The London giants have managed to stay clear of Man City in the PL title race.

But Arsenal have had some occasions in the past where they handed over their advantage to their opponents. The Gunners are pretty determined this time, and the World Cup break could hurt their momentum. So they want to avoid that circumstance at all costs.

Serbia international has been a monstrous presence in the Lazio midfield, and the central midfielder could act as a bridge between the London giants midfield and the front line. His ability to influence the game on both sides of the pitch has been one of his major qualities and he has only grown in stature in Serie A in the last few years.

From central midfield, the Serbian midfielder has managed to rack up five goals and seven assists for Lazio in all tournaments.

Arsenal in the hunt to sign 22-year-old Eredivisie playmaker

Arsenal, Chelsea, and Man United may have to pay around €45m to land Mohammed Kudus. Ghana international’s form at the World Cup has alerted many of his suitors, including the PL trio. The 22-year-old playmaker was one of the standout footballers from the World Cup group stages.

The African performed not just well but also nearly dragged Ghana toward qualifying up until the last group game. Unfortunately, the Black Stars succumbed against Uruguay, as South Korea took the other spot alongside Portugal to qualify for the next round.

Despite the early exit from Qatar, the Ghanaian midfielder can reflect on his sturdy displays and return to Ajax full of confidence. The Ghanaian’s form has attracted plenty of attention from across everywhere. The PL, in particular, has many big clubs vying for his signature.

North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham are keeping constant tabs on his situation. Arsenal are in the market for a marquee signing and could look to add the African midfielder, a versatile attacking footballer. Mohammed could also link up with compatriot Partey while also being able to play on the right wing if needed.

While he is not the Gunners’ absolute priority, the idea of the footballer could appeal to Mikel Arteta. Arsenal are in the market for a new midfielder and winger, as they are linked with key names ahead of the winter transfer window.
