Arsenal interested in ambitious signings this summer

Sometimes, it could be argued that a football club is not ambitious enough when it comes down to trying to recruit new players, whilst others will argue that the club is being as ambitious as possible when trying to lure new stars to the team.

There will be many at Arsenal that will have been frustrated with the business that they have seen at the Emirates Stadium over the last handful of years, with players arriving and being nothing more than expensive flops.

Unfortunately, that has still continued to happen in recent years, although this summer looks as though things could be about to change for the red part of North London.

Or, are Edu and Mikel Arteta being a touch overly ambitious with some of their reported transfer targets and plans to improve the squad this summer?

Whilst they are in dire need to add quality to their team, it should be remembered that the Gunners will find a steep battle in front of them this summer as they are unable to offer European football, especially when going up against clubs that are interested in the players they are and are able to provide continental football. They might have more luck playing at Thailand online casino rather than trying to sign some of the latest rumoured targets to be brutally honest.

One player that is rumoured to be of interest is Manuel Locatelli after the midfielder’s performances caught the eye of many football fans when playing in the middle of the park for 2020 UEFA European Champions Italy over the last month.

Currently of Sassuolo, the Gunners, you would have thought, would typically be in a strong position in regards to getting their man, but when Juventus are involved, then it could be a losing battle. The Serie A side will keep the player in his homeland, whilst also let him travel Europe as they play in the UEFA Champions League.

Another player who is thought to be on Arteta’s radar this summer is Real Madrid’s Vinicius Jr, according to reports coming out of Spain; something that caught us off guard a little.

Now, whilst the Gunners and Madrid appear to have an excellent relationship given the loan spells of Dani Ceballos and Martin Odegaard, whether Vinicius Jr will want to move to the Premier League and play for the Gunners without Champions League football is highly debatable, especially given that the boy is a talented individual.

There is nothing wrong with being ambitious, but if the Gunners want to be able to acquire signings that will help them immediately and give them the necessary boost that they need, then it might be worth bringing those ambitious plans down a notch, or two.

This is not a game of FIFA or Football Manager, after all.
