How Arsenal could line up next season with £150 million worth of signings

Written by Edward Pitt

Like most clubs in most windows, Arsenal have been linked with a number of potential targets in many areas. At some point, they will need to start shortening that list; we can’t sign 6 different DM’s for example!

So we thought we could look at some various ways Arsenal might spend approximately £150 million this summer.

SCENARIO/LINEUP 1:

Onana – £7 million

Celik – £13 million, Saliba, Holding, Tierney

Partey, Neves – £34 million

Saka, Odegard – £40 million, Smith Rowe

Toney – £30 million

BENCH: Lokonga – £15 million, Josh Doig – £2 million, Maty Ryan – £5 million

This would be perhaps the ideal scenario for me. We get in two quality goalkeepers if Leno does leave. We get in Neves to replace Xhaka and we make Odegaard permanent. Toney would also be a brilliant replacement for Lacazette if he leaves. The only thing I would add to this summer is someone like Houssem Aouar and then I think this would be the perfect summer.

SCENARIO/LINEUP 2:

Leno

Emerson – £25 million, Saliba, Gabriel, Tierney

Partey, Bissouma – £35 million

Saka, Aouar – £27 million, Sterling – £60 million

Aubameyang

BENCH: Ryan – £5 million, Ryan Betrand – free

This would also be a very good window for Arsenal. Sterling I do think would be a class signing if he is available; we struggle for goals from our wings at times and he would help with that. Meanwhile, Aouar needs to be signed! How were Arsenal so keen on him last summer for £45 million but won’t pay £27 million this summer without hesitation. Meanwhile, Bissouma I think is a better player than Neves and Emerson would be a quality addition at right back. My only concern with this scenario is that without signing a new striker, if Auba cannot rediscover his form then all these other additions may not matter. It’s all well and good improving our midfield, but that’s useless if we don’t have a striker capable of getting us 20 league goals next season

SCENARIO/LINEUP 3:

Leno

Noussair Mazraoui – £9 million, Tapsoba – £50 million, Gabriel, Tierney

Partey, Aouar – £27 million

Saka, Calhanoglu – free, Grealish – £80 million

Aubameyang

This one involves fewer signings but gives us the dream of that one huge signing I think so many Arsenal fans are all for. Jack Grealish would be such an epic signing, though he would take up most of our budget. I like this scenario but I probably wouldn’t sign Tapsoba and instead would bring in someone like Neves to rotate with Partey/Aouar.

So Gooners, which scenario do you prefer?
