According to journalist Ekrem Konur, Arsenal are ready to spend up to 80 million euros to sign three new players in the summer transfer window.
The three players mentioned are Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus, 19-year-old Bologna left-back Aaron Hickey and 19-year-old Sao Paulo forward Marquinhos.
Arsenal will desperately need to strengthen their squad ahead of the 2022-23 season. Unlike this season, the Gunners are expected to have European football in some form or another next season.
Additional midweek European games will require Mikel Arteta to have some strength and depth in their squad. The Gunners, therefore, have identified three summer targets for the upcoming summer transfer window. Based on Fabrizio RomanoArsenal have agreed terms with Sao Paulo winger Marquinhos for a fee of around 3.5 million euros. He could appear in the club’s pre-season.
The second player on Mikel Arteta’s transfer shortlist is Aaron Hickey from Serie A side Bologna. The 19-year-old Scotland international is primarily a left-back but is even capable of playing at right-back. . He will cost between €20 and €24 million for the Gunners.
However, Arsenal’s upcoming signing will certainly be Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City. The Brazilian striker will be looking to leave the Etihad Stadium after Man City confirmed the arrival of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.
Gabriel Jesus is likely to become the number 1 choice at the Emirates Stadium team. The Gunners are currently short of attacking players following the departure of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Barcelona in the January transfer window.
Another reason Mikel Arteta needs a new striker is because the futures of Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are uncertain. The current contracts of both strikers will expire at the end of the season with no sign of renewal.
Arsenal are not afraid to splurge on young players in the recent transfer window. Last summer, the Gunners spent nearly 185 million euros to sign the likes of Martin Odegaard, Ben White and Aaron Ramsdale.

The Gunners will march to St. James’ Park to host Newcastle United in the Premier League on Monday, May 16.
Mikel Arteta’s side will be keen to return to victory after suffering a 3-0 defeat at the hands of rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the north London derby.
The Gunners are currently ranked 5th on the rankings, with 66 points after 36 games. They are two points behind the fourth-ranked team, Tottenham, and have one match left in their hands. They will need to win both remaining matches to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
