2. Julian Alvarez

It is unrealistic, but only mildly unrealistic.

Arsenal are Man City's closest competitors in the Premier League. While Pep Guardiola and Mikel Arteta have a good relationship with one another, it remains to be seen whether or not Pep would be willing to sell the Gunners any more players.

After all, the last two players to make the switch were Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus, but this was before Pep could foresee Arsenal challenging for the title. It must be said that there's only one way for Arsenal to find out and that is by testing Man City's resolve.

It looks likely that Julian Alvarez is going to be a wanted man in the summer transfer window. The World Cup winner can only be second-fiddle to Erling Haaland for so long before he becomes aggitated and feels hard-done-by.

At Arsenal, he could certainly make a name for himself. Proving the ability to score a plethora of goals in the Premier League, Julian Alvarez is my second wildcard Arsenal transfer pick.

Oh, it's also a bonus that City have signed Savio. Has Alvarez become surplus to requirements? Only time will tell, if Arsenal are brave enough.
