There were no notable deals made by Arsenal in January. This seemed to be expected because they spent too much money in August last year. However, Arsenal will likely return to the market next summer and the position they want to fill the most is striker.
According to journalist Ben Jacobs, There is a favorable situation for the Gunners to recruit Rafael Leao.
“Some clubs are looking for players who can score 20-plus goals for them, especially Premier League clubs. So we know that Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United will all be involved.” and there will be competition as each team is looking to improve their offense,” Jacobs told ESPN.
“I think Leao could be another summer deal because obviously the main target for the Premier League teams seems to be Victor Osimhen, and maybe even Toney or more for Arsenal. I think with Chelsea, it’s likely that Osimhen will be at the top of their list, and Toney is a bit behind on the list.”
Leao signed a 5-year contract with Milan in the summer of 2022. However, this season he is having difficulty shooting with just 3 goals in 19 appearances.
