Arsenal are still interested in signing an attacking midfielder, a goalkeeper and potentially a right back this window, according to a report.

The Telegraph report that Arsenal still want to sign players in three positions this summer: Attacking midfield, goalkeeper, and right-back. At this point, however, there’s an acceptance that incomings will depend on outgoings.

In attacking midfield, The Telegraph mention Martin Ødegaard and James Maddison, giving Ødegaard as the more likely option of the two. That pursuit could reportedly go into the final days of the window.

In goal, the interest in Aaron Ramsdale has been heavily publicised. Though it appeared to fall apart over the last 24 hours with a large gap in valuations between Arsenal and Sheffield United, talks could reportedly still be reignited later in the window.

At right-back, it really is a case of selling first. There’s no way Arsenal can add a fourth senior right-back, in addition to Ainsley Maitland-Niles as a potential fifth, without any European football to give even half of them regular games.

Interestingly, there’s no mention of a striker in The Telegraph’s piece. Arsenal keep being linked with the likes of Lautaro Martinez, Tammy Abraham, and so on, but that does feel like a lower priority at this stage.
