How Arsenal could line up next season after two major signings and an attack good enough to win the Champions League

ARSENAL could look to compete on both fronts next season by landing two major signings.

The Gunners have mounted a surprise title push this season and sit five points ahead of Manchester City.

Mikel Arteta has overseen a vast improvement at The Emirates thanks in part to the club’s business in the transfer market last summer.

Arrivals such as Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus have had a big impact and Arsenal could look to make other significant additions this summer.

Arteta is believed to be keen on a midfielder having missed out on Brighton’s Moises Caicedo, with Declan Rice believed to be at the top of his wishlist.

The West Ham captain is at the centre of a transfer tussle with Manchester United and Chelsea also interested in the £100million-rated midfielder.

Arsenal also want to add more goals to the side and build their strength in depth up-front after being negatively affected by Jesus’ injury.

The Gunners are reportedly leading the race to sign Napoli hitman Victor Osimhen, who revealed it is his dream to play in the Premier League after scoring 19 goals in 21 Serie A games this season.

United are also keen on the striker who could cost around £133m.

If Arsenal fail to land those targets Arteta and Edu could try to sign Romeo Lavia, who has impressed since joining Southampton from Manchester City last summer.

Crystal Palace star man Wilfried Zaha is also of interest and could be snapped up for a bargain with his contract set to expire in the summer.

Chelsea are monitoring the winger but he is reported to be an Arsenal fan, which could boost the Gunners’ chances of landing the Palace player.

The Gunners have also been heavily linked with a move for highly-rated Spanish right-back Ivan Fresneda.

He has a release clause of £26.5million in his contract and Real Valladolid hope to spark a bidding war to get close to that amount.
