In order to gain ground in the Premier League, The Gunners and Mikel Arteta have been active in the transfer market thus far ahead of the 2023–24 season.

Kai Havertz joined the team from Chelsea in a £65m transfer, while Jurrien Timber moved to north London from Ajax for £38m.

Those two deals take Arsenal’s summer spending to £103m, and that will double with a move for Declan Rice now completeted. West Ham have confirmed that the England international has left the club and has joined Arsenal in a deal worth a guaranteed £100m plus £5m in add-ons.

There could still be more to come at the Emirates, though, with a transfer update emerging in the last 48 hours.

Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth provided transfer news on Arsenal, claiming that the focus will now be on departures due to the money they have spent in recent weeks.

However, the reliable reporter did claim that a new right-sided attacker and another central midfielder could be deals to potentially keep an eye on before the window closes.

“The focus will be on departures simply because they have probably spent close to £200m once the Rice and the Timber deals go through.

“But, the right-sided attacking position, that is something I think Arsenal will be trying to look at. They’ve been focusing at that position in the past couple of transfer windows, so maybe just keep an eye on that.

“And maybe on the central midfielder area as well. I know that Declan Rice is on the verge of coming in but Granit Xhaka has left. But if Thomas Partey was to potentially leave, because we know that there is a lot of interest. It is just at an interest stage at the moment but if that was to develop then maybe Arsenal would potentially look into recruiting there as well.”

With more than £200m spent so far this summer, Arsenal, as Sheth mentions, could be looking at moving payers on before bringing anyone else in. However, there have been players linked with moves to join Arteta’s side, including Gremio central midfielder Bitello.

Arsenal are “actually moving seriously” for Bitello, and reports have suggested that the club even have officials in Brazil to “analyse and send an offer” for the 23-year-old.

Ferran Torres of Barcelona has been linked with a move to Arsenal. The club are thought to be eager to sign the forward on loan, and the La Liga winners would agree to any temporary deal for him.

Mikel Arteta has worked with Torres at Manchester City, so moves for the Spaniard and Bitello could be worth watching in the coming weeks. However, some players may need to be moved on first, so Edu and co. may still have a busy few weeks in the market.
