The summer transfer window is closer than ever. It’s time to think about what Arsenal need to do in order to become Champions next season. Judging by the latest reports and analysing their credibility, I’ve put together this short list about the three most likely deals Arsenal will complete this summer.
1. Morgan Schneiderlin to Arsenal (£24million)
Southampton’s star midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin is odds on to move to Arsenal this summer. The French midfielder is the perfect fit for the Gunners midfield void.
The French midfielder has publicly stated that he wants to stay in England this summer and also ruled out a move to clubs not in the Champions League. That just leaves us with Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United to contend with. I think out of that foursome we are the most likely destination.
Some doubt whether Schneiderlin is of a high enough quality for the club. Whilst I would prefer someone like Arturo Vidal, I would have no qualms about Schneiderlin signing. He’s a quality player and already Premier League proven. He’d certainly improve our options in that area of the field.
