CM: Bruno Guimaraes. Bruno Guimaraes would slot seamlessly into the Arsenal midfield trio. As a player with similar attributes to Declan Rice, they could easily act as a doublt pivot OR interchange between attacking and defensive positions. The versatility is a key reason why Mikel Arteta is targeting Bruno Guimaraes.

CM: Declan Rice. Was unfortunate to miss out on the Premier League title in his first Arsenal season but he will push again in 2024/25. Currently involved in action for England at EURO 2024, Rice would gladly facilitate more world-class talent in the midfield.

CM: Martin Odegaard. Completing the perfect midfield trio is none other than the enigmatic captain Martin Odegaard. The skipper was one of Arsenal's best players last season and he will hope for more of the same in 2024/25, hopefully backed up by two of the best in the business just behind him.
