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 tried to sign a striker in January, that much is clear having been reported far and wide by every journalist in the game. It’s also clear that they failed in that plan, and Fabrizio Romano has explained that the most important aspect of their intention was for the potential target to be considered a top player. The club were simply not going to spend money on a player about which they weren’t absolutely convinced.
