Needless to say, Arsenal will be active in the summer transfer window. Mikel Arteta is building a long-term success plan at the club and he requires the backing of the board. Since the Spaniard has given the board every reason under the sun to back him, they have done just that in the past and will continue this monetum in the summer transfer window.

Last summer, they added Kai Havertz and Declan Rice to the midfield. Since the former is adopting a more attacking role (understandably), Mikel Arteta would like to bring in a midfield reinforcement or two. With that being said, it comes as no surprise that Arsenal have been linked to three different midfielders over the last two days.
