Arsenal have some big plans to improve their squad in the summer transfer window. Sitting in a great spot and showing potential to finish their turbulent season on a high, Mikel Arteta would like to bring in some world-class reinforcements this summer.

It comes as no surprise to see that the Gunners are linked with a move for Rodrygo. The Real Madrid attacker's position is under threat, given that Kylian Mbappe is expected to make the move. But what could Rodrygo signing for Arsenal mean for their squad?

Here are 2 winners and 1 loser from Arsenal signing Rodrygo this summer...

1. Eddie Nketiah (loser)

Eddie Nketiah struggles to get into the Arsenal squad at the best of times. The Englishman who graduated from the Arsenal academy is the second choice striker behind Gabriel Jesus. However, when Kai Havertz and Leandro Trossard are also considered for the position, he becomes the fourth choice. Bringing in Rodrygo would only push Nketiah down in the pecking order.

Nketiah is walking on a thin tightrope as it is. If he does not step up to the starting eleven and make a name for himself between now and the end of the season, he could be sold. Signing Rodrygo would only confirm that.
