Five Arsenal transfers dependent on Champions League qualification ahead of North London Derby clash

Few predicted that Arsenal would finish in the top four this season, let alone be the clear favourites to win the Champions League.

However, this is the fact, and the consequences of accomplishing it might be enormous for the club.

Arsenal’s transfer activities, in particular, will benefit significantly. 

The team wants to reduce the gap with the clubs above them and return to the title-challenging level that made them the club they are today.

If Arsenal wins the North London Derby against Tottenham, they will have qualified for next season’s European top league.

As a result, the match will be crucial in determining if certain players will be appearing at the Emirates this summer.

Raheem Sterling

According to The Telegraph, Arsenal is interested in signing Manchester City winger Gabriel Jesus.

According to CBS Sports’ Ben Jacobs, Tottenham would be the winger’s favourite destination due to a variety of circumstances, including Spurs’ presentation to him.

However, if Arsenal wins the Champions League next season, it may influence the winger’s decision on where to go if he does depart. 

After spending so many seasons with Manchester City, falling into the Europa League would be a major step down.

Gabriel Jesus

Mikel Arteta is reportedly interested in signing Gabriel Jesus this summer, according to football.london.

By coming from one of the current Premier League championship contenders, the Brazilian would give the quality to help reduce the gap.

However, without access to the Champions League, Jesus is unlikely to select Arsenal. 

His agency said that as many as six clubs have inquired about signing him, and it is reasonable given most, if not all, are in the running to play in the Champions League next season.

Arsenal must be involved as well in order to have the best chance of encouraging Jesus to make the transition.

Youri Tielemans

Youri Tielemans, a Belgian midfielder for Leicester City, has one year left on his contract. 

The Foxes are thought to want to cash in on the 25-year-old in order to avoid letting him leave for free in the summer.

Despite Arsenal’s interest, Tielemans is thought to be waiting until the conclusion of the season to weigh his options in order to ensure that his next club competes in the Champions League. 

If Arsenal fails to sign Tielemans, the door will almost probably be closed.

Darwin Nunez

Almost every major team in Europe is interested in the Benfica star. To be honest, Manchester City are no longer Manchester City after acquiring Erling Haaland, but that makes sense. 

Darwin Nunez, on the other hand, is regarded as a world-class talent by everyone else.

Nunez, like the other players on this list, is anticipated to desire to play in the Champions League. According to iNews, a source confirmed this to them. Arsenal will so require fourth place to have a chance.

“Whether you trawl through the data or watch him in the flesh, it’s pretty clear he’s an outstanding striker,” they said. “In every metric, he shapes up well. He’s good in the air, a great decision-maker, he’s mobile, tactically superb and embraces the fight. He has it all and if we could get him, we would. But he’ll be going to a Champions League club.”

Victor Osimhen

Despite Arsenal’s interest in Victor Osimhen, Napoli transfer guru Emanuele Cammaroto believes he, like the other four players on our list, will want to play in the Champions League next season.

“The big names of the Premier League are following him and are beginning to come forward,” said Cammaroto via Sport Witness. “The former Lille player wants to play in the Champions League with Napoli, and then he will choose his future.”

Although Osimhen appears to be a more difficult player to entice away from Napoli, primarily due to Napoli’s position in Serie A, if Arsenal are to persuade him to make the transition, Champions League football is a requirement.
