Arsenal transfer news: Edu decides next two deals, move for new Martinelli, £20m demand

Arsenal might be preparing for one of the most active transfer periods they have ever experienced, as they aim to make a strong comeback in the Champions League. 

Mikel Arteta has clearly stated his intention to use their accomplishments from the current season as a foundation for further progress. He is focusing on acquiring several high-profile players through significant investments to strengthen his squad for the upcoming 2022/23 season.

It is widely known that Arsenal is preparing a club-record offer for Declan Rice at the end of the season. Additionally, the club is actively pursuing new signings in both the defensive and attacking positions.

There is a possibility of multiple players leaving Arsenal, as sporting director Edu is interested in generating additional funds to strengthen Mikel Arteta’s budget.

Despite the disappointment of Arsenal’s performance in the Premier League title race, there is a sense of confidence that the club is on the verge of something special. They are determined to narrow the gap on Manchester City in the upcoming season.

Edu decides next two deals

After several months of negotiations with Reiss Nelson’s representatives, Arsenal is nearing an agreement for the player to sign a new long-term contract with the club.

In addition to Nelson’s contract, Arsenal has two other deals in the pipeline. Bukayo Saka and Aaron Ramsdale recently committed their long-term futures to the club, and now Arsenal is focused on securing new contracts for Martin Odegaard and William Saliba. Talks have already begun with Saliba regarding his contract extension.

While other clubs are reportedly monitoring Saliba’s situation, Arsenal remains confident internally that they will be able to finalize the deal, despite some delays.

Move for new Gabriel Martinelli

According to 90min, Arsenal has been closely monitoring the performance of Marcos Leonardo, a young Brazilian forward, at the Under-20s World Cup. This tournament has a history of showcasing promising talent, which has attracted scouts from various European clubs.

Edu, Arsenal’s sporting director, has established connections with clubs in Brazil, making Leonardo a player of interest for the Gunners.

In recent days, Arsenal has also been linked with Matheus Franca and Pedrinho. However, Express Sport indicates that there is currently no substance to those claims.

£20m Sacha Boey demand

According to widespread reports, Arsenal will need to pay £20 million if they wish to sign Sacha Boey from Galatasaray in the upcoming summer transfer window. The 22-year-old right-back has made a positive impression in Turkey since his transfer from Rennes in 2021, and there is a possibility of him making a move to the Premier League, with Arsenal being a potential destination.

According to reports, representatives from Galatasaray have been in London to hold discussions with English clubs regarding potential transfers of their players. While Arsenal is said to be aware of the situation, it appears that the Gunners are not actively pursuing the mentioned French full-back at the moment. 

Crystal Palace and Brighton have also been linked with the player, indicating that he could be in line for a significant move during the upcoming summer transfer window.
