Transfer rumours: Richarlison decides against Arsenal transfer 0

Posted on June 14, 2022 by Veselin Trajkovic

Everton forward Richarlison has apparently decided against joining Arsenal this summer. That is according to Brazil UOL (via Sport Witness), and the main reason behind it is the possibility of Leeds United winger Raphinha moving to the Emirates. Richarlison apparently believes it would condemn him to sitting on the bench.

Meanwhile, the Brazil international continues to be linked with the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea, and there’s no real need to point out that he would hardly get any game-time ahead of the likes of Harry Kane or Kai Havertz.

Alexandre Lacazette has left Arsenal and has been confirmed as an Olympique Lyon player again. His departure follows fast in the wake of that of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Barcelona in January, and Arsenal have found themselves desperately short of strikers, despite Eddie Nketiah reportedly changing his mind about leaving and being close to signing a new contract.

Naturally, the club have turned to the transfer market in order to sort the issue out, and here’s what the Evening Standard are reporting about that mission.

Arsenal are obviously in desperate need of a striker, potentially even two, this summer, and their search for players of the right pedigree goes a long way back. There’s hardly any need to stress – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is no longer at the club, and Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are both set to follow the Gabonese through the exit door as free agents at the end of next month.

While Arsenal may have impressed with a 5-1 demolition of Everton on the final day of the Premier League season, they didn’t achieve their ultimate goal which was to finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions League. Tottenham were able to walk through Norwich with a 5-0 triumph, ensuring that Spurs edged out the Gunners into that elusive fourth spot.

Now, the questions really begin to stack up for the club and manager Mikel Arteta ahead of what is bound to be a really intense summer. In his post-game press conference, the Spaniard had the following to say.

While Arsenal may have allowed control of the top four race to slip into the hands of their rivals Tottenham Hotspur, that doesn’t mean all hope is lost. They head into the final day of the Premier League season knowing that if they can beat Everton, they’ll put themselves in the best possible position they can to finish fourth and return to the Champions League. Of course, they need Norwich City to do them a huge favour by beating Spurs, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Prior to kick-off, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta spoke with the media about the challenge that lies ahead on Sunday.

We’ve finally arrived at the final game of the Premier League season and the majority of Arsenal fans will say that it feels pretty bittersweet. While some real improvements have been made within the core of this squad over the last nine months, that can’t erase the fact that the top four race is no longer in the Gunners’ hands.

Today, we’re going to take a look at the clash with Everton on Sunday and what to expect.

Like any other club serious about being competitive at top level, Arsenal are already preparing for the summer transfer window and drafting potential targets according to the assessments of what the squad needs to become stronger. According to the Evening Standard, the Gunners have set signing two strikers and a midfielder as their top priority, with a left-sided centre-back and a right back slightly lower on the wish list.

Arsenal’s attempts to reinforce their ranks this summer certainly cannot be said to be going the right way up to this point. Desperately needing a striker, the club reportedly held a strong interest in Dusan Vlahovic, but the Serbia international seems to have chosen Juventus as his destination, following Fiorentina’s decision to accept a €75 million bid from the Old Lady.

As for the midfield section, the need to add some proper cover or competition for the duo of Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka is obvious, and the club were said to be involved in talks with Juventus over Arthur Melo, and to have expressed an interest in Olympique Lyon’s Bruno Guimaraes.

Sometimes you’ve got to really dig deep when things aren’t going your way but on Monday night, Arsenal couldn’t quite do that. They managed to take the lead against Everton in their MNF clash but by the end of the evening, they were on the wrong end of a dramatic 2-1 defeat.

A lot of fans saw signs of the Gunners going in the wrong direction after years of stale football and, based on this performance, we can understand why they may be worried.

After the loss, Mikel Arteta faced the music when speaking to the media about the result.
