Arsenal’s transfer priority revealed

Fabrizio Romano has provided a transfer update on Arsenal as we head towards the close of the summer window.

Arsenal have had a fairly active summer window to date. They have signed Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City. Elsewhere, they landed Fabio Vieira from FC Porto, Matt Turner from New England and Marquinhos from Sao Paulo.

All told, said signings set Arsenal back around £119 – using prices from Transfermarket.

On the outgoings front, meanwhile, Matteo Guendouzi, Lucas Torreira, Bernd Leno, Kostas Mavropanos and Alexandre Lacazette left on a permanent basis, whilst Nuno Tavares, Pablo Mari and Alex Runarsson were loaned out.

So, what is next for Arsenal? Well, Fabrizio Romano has reported on Tuesday that the Gunners’ priority is currently more outgoings.

However, Romano added that the club are still exploring options for another signing:

Romano said: “I get asked about Arsenal a lot and it’s certainly gone a little quiet at the Emirates Stadium, but here’s my latest understanding of the club’s plans:

“Arsenal’s priority was and still is the outgoings. After Torreira and Pablo Mari, Runarsson has signed on loan to Alanyaspor and Hector Bellerin hopes to terminate the contract to return to Spain as soon as possible.

“Still, I’m aware that Edu and Mikel Arteta are exploring options for another signing, but always with the names under the radar.

“As I’ve said before this summer, they were interested in Raphinha and could seek an alternative - there is a long-standing interest in Moussa Diaby but Bayer Leverkusen don’t plan to sell him this summer.”
