Arsenal is looking to make its first top-four finish since 2015/16. Can their recent signings help them claim a top-four spot? Read on for more.

Although Arsenal FC narrowly missed out on a UEFA Champions League spot for the upcoming 2022/23 season by finishing the Premier League in fifth place behind Tottenham Hotspur (4th), Chelsea (3rd), Liverpool (2nd) and Manchester City (1st), it hasn’t stopped some of today’s biggest-named players from being attracted to the club. Arsenal has qualified for the Europa League, and they will enter the competition in the third round, which is scheduled to begin on November 8th/9th.

Who is likely to join Arsenal this summer?

The Gunners, as they are commonly referred to, have already made some big transfers, plus there are plenty of rumours and gossip swirling around surrounding who may be next to join the club.

The transfer window for next season officially opened on June 10th, and they only have until 11pm on September 1st to finalize their deals. Lisandro Martinez has already told his current club Ajax that he wants a move to the Premier League, but the 24-year has yet to decide whether he wants to play at Arsenal or Manchester United. Although a defender and not a striker, he would make a great addition to the squad to strengthen the defenses.

One of the biggest signing stories so far is that of Gabriel Jesus. He is expected to join Arsenal from Manchester City for a fee of £45m. The 25-year-old attacking Brazilian international has already completed a medical with the club, and the deal is likely to be set in stone soon.

He has made a total of 159 appearances for eight-time Premier League champions, scoring an impressive 58 goals across all competitions. He also has 56 caps for Brazil, having scored 19 goals for his country. According to odds from Zambia online betting, Jesus is seventh-favorite to finish the season with the Golden Boot

It also looks as though Arsenal will make an improved offer for a fellow-Brazilian teammate, Raphinha (Raphael Dias Belloli), who had an amazing 2021/22 season at Leeds United. The striker scored some memorable goals for the club (17 in 65 games) and was a key player in the team. He also now has 9 caps for Brazil, having scored 3 goals. If you were to place money on both players coming to Arenal this summer, you could be spot on with your money.

Other notable mentions include the singing of Porto midfielder Fabio Vieira for £34m, including add-ons, and Brazilian forward Marquinhos, for who they paid £30m upfront plus £4m in potential performance bonuses. Some of the other players that Arsenal has also been linked with are Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans, Brazilian star Richarlison from Everton, and Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who is also an Everton player, Atletico Madrid’s Alvaro Morata, and even Real Madrid’s Marco Asensio, to name just a few.

A look at some of Arsenal’s biggest ever signings

The most amount of money Arsenal ever spent on a player was for the 2019/20 season when they forked out £72m for French Ivorian right-winger Nicholas Pépé. For the 2017/18 season, they spend a total of £57.38m on French Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. A total of £52.38m was spent on English centre-back Ben White for the last campaign, and they spent £47.70m on French international centre-forward, Alexandre Lacazette. Other big-name players that Arsenal has spent millions on over the past ten years are Thomas Partey, Mesut Ozil, Granit Xhaka, Alexis Sanchez, Shkodran Mustafi, and Martin Ødegaard.

A brief history of Arsenal FC and some of their most notable honours

Arsenal FC (aka The Gunners) was formed in 1886. They are regarded as one of the most successful clubs in English football, having played in the country’s top division (known as the Football League First Division until 1992 and the Premier League after that) each season since 1919. They are currently managed by former player Mikel Arteta, and play their home games at the Emirates Stadium, which has a 60,704 capacity.

The club plays in red and white, and their most successful team was given the nickname The Invincibles, who Arsène Wenger managed. He was Arsenal’s most successful manager, having won the most trophies while he was at the club for an incredible 22-year spell. His iconic title-winning team set an English record for the longest top-flight unbeaten league run at 49 games between the 2003/04 season. The London club has won the First Division/Premier League a total of 13 times, the League Cup/EFL cup twice, and the FA Cup a record 14 times. They also won the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup in the 1993/94 season, to name just a few of their most prestigious honours.
