Not enough room for Havertz? How two new purchases and an LB move could affect Arsenal’s lineup for the upcoming season

Not enough room for Havertz? How two new purchases and an LB move could affect Arsenal’s lineup for the upcoming season

Whether or not Arsenal wins the Premier League title this weekend, they seem set for an exciting summer ahead. In order for the Gunners to keep getting closer to Manchester City and pursue longer runs in the Champions League, there is a lot of groundwork that needs to be done. Though specific transfer-related news may still be some time off, rumors regarding prospective player moves are already rampant in the media.

It’s clear where Arsenal needs help; up front, they need a more dangerous goal threat, especially with Gabriel Jesus not contributing much. Furthermore, despite his talent, Kai Havertz’s position doesn’t fit well as a traditional number nine, which may eventually point to a midfield role.

Therefore, it should come as no surprise to read reports confirming Arsenal’s strong interest in Benjamin Sesko from reputable sources like Fabrizio Romano. The €50 million release clause on the RB Leipzig striker makes him a desirable addition to the Gunners’ forward line.

Furthermore, AFC desperately needs a defensive midfielder to support Declan Rice in the midfield. The England international is playing well at number eight, so players like Thomas Partey and Jorginho might need to step up. Ben Jacobs has provided some insightful information about Bruno Guimaraes’ possible transfer to Arsenal, citing early communications with the player’s representatives as cause for concern.

Looking ahead, if Arteta makes the acquisitions he wants, the projected Arsenal starting lineup for the coming campaign looks strong. After an injury-plagued season, Jurrien Timber is expected to be crucial because of his versatility as a left- and right-back. A dynamic midfield setup is promised with Sesko leading the line and Guimaraes anchoring the midfield with Rice and Martin Odegaard supporting him.

Even though it may be difficult to fit the highly effective Havertz into this lineup, his versatility guarantees a substantial amount of playing time in a variety of competitions. A competitive campaign is anticipated because of Leandro Trossard’s outstanding performances, which indicate that he is currently the preferred candidate over Gabriel Martinelli, even with the latter’s room for improvement.
