The Spaniard spent more than £150million last summerwho is hiring six new recruits to bolster his roster – but his spending spree has paid off as the Gunners close to ending their multi-year existence for good Champions League Exile. Arsenal are on pole get last place in Europe in front Manchester United and their other top 4 rivals who are out for games to trap the Gunners.
Although a return to Europe is a big step forward for the Londoners, their side still need extensive surgery before the club can compete for the club First League title again.
After a stunning mid-season transfer window in January, Arsenal are expected to spend again in the summer to cement their progress under Arteta.
And although Arsenal are set to receive a huge financial boost if they can seal their Champions League return, the Gunners’ transfer budget will receive a £15million boost due to the forthcoming sale of two fringe players.
Accordingly CalciomercatoFiorentina are in talks with Arsenal to turn things around Lucas Torreiras Loan deal into a permanent £12.5million deal. The 26-year-old has played a key role for the Italian club while on loan, scoring four goals in 25 games.
But Torreira has struggled to get involved in Arteta’s plans and has spent the last year on loan Atlético Madrid, so a permanent exit would make sense for all parties. The report details that the club are in ‘more frequent’ talks with Arsenal and Torreira’s agent Pablo Bentancur to finalize a deal.
As well as their forthcoming multimillion-pound win for Torreira, so are the Gunners is set to rake in a further £2.5million by unloading Konstantinos Mavropanos. The 24-year-old Greek international was also successful on loan, and Stuttgart wants to turn his temporary stay into a permanent one.
Mavropanos has made just a handful of senior games for the Gunners since joining the club for a small sum in 2018. But the defender has found a home in Stuttgart, where he has spent the last year and a half on loan.
Any money Arsenal can muster this summer will likely go towards signing a new striker. The club is desperately easy to attack after giving Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang the boot at the end of January – although no adequate replacement could be obtained.
