Report: Arsenal still in the market to sign new players in these 3 positions

Arsenal remain interested in signing an attacking midfielder, goalkeeper and potentially a right-back before the closure of the window according to The Telegraph

Incomings will very much depend on what the club can do in terms of outgoings, though. Joe Willock is set to become a significant sale for the club, but there are at least 10 more players that the club would be open to offers for. 

If Arsenal are to strengthen at right-back, for example, they would need to sell at least two of their current four options (Cedric Soares, Hector Bellerin, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Calum Chambers). Arguments can be made that Maitland-Niles and Chambers are both capable of featuring in other positions, but there certainly needs to be a cleansing in that area of the squad before anyone new could arrive. 

Between the sticks, a move for Aaron Ramsdale is on the verge of collapse, with alternative options now being considered. Arsenal fans have been hopeful of a move for Ajax stopper Andre Onana, but a homegrown option appears to be the club’s priority. Sam Johnstone of West Brom is another who could be amongst the candidates as a Ramsdale alternative. 

In attacking midfield, Arsenal’s priority seems to be securing Martin Odegaard. Reports in Spain have suggested Arsenal have had a bid rejected recently. The Athletic have since confirmed that the Gunners have not given up hope of signing the Norweigan midfielder this summer. 

Interestingly The Telegraph don’t mention a new forward as a possibility for the club. That despite strong links to Tammy Abraham this month. Again, the club will need to sell in order to create the space for a new forward. Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah both have just one year remaining on their contracts and the club appear to be open to selling both if the right offer arrives.
