Double deal this week: Arsenal expected to complete £70m transfer splurge

Posted by

Arsenal could reportedly complete a £70million double transfer this week.

The Gunners are being tipped to pursue two ambitious signings in the coming days, with Gabriel Jesus and Lisandro Martinez their priority targets, according to the Daily Mail.

Arsenal have already signed Brazilian youngster Marquinhos this summer, and it looks like further additions could be on their way.

Porto midfielder Fabio Vieira also looks set to join Arsenal, according to BBC Sport, and now the Mail state that Jesus and Martinez are also in the pipeline for the north London giants.

It’s not entirely clear if Arsenal will get these players in for £70m, with the Mail suggesting Martinez could cost £30m to sign from Ajax, while Manchester City are asking for close to £50m for Jesus.

Gabriel Jesus could be on his way to Arsenal

AFC narrowly missed out on the top four last season, and it looks like they’re serious about putting things right by strengthening ahead of next term.

Mikel Arteta will be under pressure to finally improve results and performances with this much investment being put into the team, so next season really could be the Spaniard’s biggest test yet as expectations rise.

  1. Now I’m convinced Arteta must have something against Saliba…chap loaned out does exceptionally well and can’t even be considered. Now Arteta is in the market for a CB , Nuts!!

    1. Arteta doesn’t have anything against Salina. Arsenal need a left footed defender that can cover for Tierney because of he is injury prone

    2. he has nothing against saliba, the new center back can play in a number of positions particularly K,T position, you know he is always injured

    3. Truly agree. Arteta is not the manager that Arsenal needs. He has that awkward feeling towards players who can take Arsenal to a different level but simply hates them. I really wonder why he should look for an extra defender when he has more than enough. Edu as the technical advisor he is equally stupid.

  2. Now that Arteta want to sign another CB, is it that he didn’t have trust in Saliba or what?

    1. Saliba is a right cb to compete with white, he’s in the market for left cb to compete with Gabriel

  3. Guendozi have poison saliba’s mind against Araenal and Arteta… he can leave if he’s not ready to join the boat

  4. And Arteta seems to be focusing on players that play multiple positions i.e Lisandro also plays left back. Same way Tomiyasu is a RCB but functions as a RBTaku

  5. Edu and Arteta are equally stupid. Why waste money on another defender? They should strengthen other weak areas of the team

  6. With a young squad in an ever improving league arteta and backroom seem to be making positive steps with europa league football the stronger and settled combinations should help identify just how real competitive the work is to know
    To rely percentagely on 13/16 squad variation isn’t practically possible through a calander were demands will shift from fixtures to competition saliba hopefully will get his opportunity in a squad

    1. I am not the one to put some blame on Artete’s decision to bench Nketia until thr few games remaining into the end of last season. I want us to pause for a minute and think what might have happened if Nketia has been playing since the beginning of the year when it was obvious that Lacazzet has really dipped in form.Excellent managers will have made the right changes at the appropriate it not an irony that both players scored the same number of goals for the season.Please help me to think that lam wrong int statement.

  8. Arsenal is changing a lot in these transfer markets.First is to bring quality,young breed and above all transform this young crop to become lucrative assets if any team is to come for them.It is not only about the pitch,the business matter needs to be appreciated too.
