Although the summer is still some way away, Arsenal continue to be linked with a host of players. Here is a round-up of some of them.
Gabri Veiga (20, midfielder)
AS reports that Gabri Veiga, the 20-year-old midfielder from Celta Vigo, is being considered by Arsenal as a potential option to bolster their midfield.
Manchester United are also said to be interested in the player.
While Celta Vigo would prefer to retain Veiga, his strong performance this season – with six goals and two assists in 25 games – could make it challenging to do so.
Rasmus Hojlund (20, striker)
Arsenal are reportedly interested in making a big offer for Rasmus Hojlund, the Atalanta striker who has been likened to Manchester City’s Erling Haaland.
The Gunners scouted Hojlund during Atalanta’s recent win over Lazio, in which he scored.
Real Madrid are also believed to be keen on the 20-year-old, with president Florentino Perez reportedly an admirer.
Hojlund has scored six goals in Serie A this season and has been praised by Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini, who compared his attributes to those of Haaland.
Both Arsenal and Real Madrid are said to be preparing significant offers for Hojlund.
Nico Williams (20, winger)
Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing Athletic Bilbao winger Nico Williams during the summer transfer window.
The Gunners are looking for a right winger to rotate with Bukayo Saka next season and have identified the 20-year-old Spaniard as a potential target.
Williams’ contract with Athletic Bilbao ends in 2024, and there are no signs of a renewal happening, making him a relatively cheap option for several big teams in Europe.
The winger has scored seven goals and provided six assists in 27 games played this season and is considered one of the most important young Spanish talents around.
