Arsenal are looking to appease their fans, who have been disappointed with the current state of affairs at the club, which saw the former Premier League champions finish outside the top four for the first time since 1998. The Gunners are looking to make amends for their mistakes from the last season and are willing to turn this season in their own favour.
The present manager of the North London club, Arsene Wenger, who has signed a new contract with the outfit that will see him stay back at the Emirates Stadium for another couple of seasons, is looking to bring some new players to the side to make it stronger for the new term. They have already secured the signature of one of the most highly regarded left backs in the current scenario in the form of Bosnian player Sead Kolasinac on a free transfer from German side Schalke.
They are also in contention to secure the signature of one of the best strikers in European football for the next season as well, as they inch closer to almost seal the deal for the French ace Alexandre Lacazette from the Ligue 1 club Lyon in the forthcoming days.
The Gunners are also concentrating on building their midfield on a strong foundation for the next season and are eyeing to launch a big bid to bring in the attacking midfielder Gelson Martins from the Portuguese club Sporting Lisbon in the summer. The player has been one of the top notch midfielders in Portuguese as well as European football in the present scenario and has been eyed by a number of big name clubs.
The 22-year-old winger has been instrumental for his current club side in the last term, having played in 32 matches in the Portuguese Primeira Liga and scoring six goals to show for his efforts. He also assisted his teammates by helping them to score on 14 occasions throughout the season, thus establishing himself as one of the most complete team players.
However, Arsenal might have to face stern competition from their arch rivals, including the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United, who are also eyeing the impressive winger to bring him in their squad for the next season. Reportedly, the Reds have also readied a bid of £44 million for the player to boost their attacking options for the next term, following the capture of the influential midfielder Mohamed Salah from Italian club AS Roma last week.
