Arsenal had a quiet transfer window last month with only Denis Suarez arriving at the north London club in a loan deal from Barcelona.
The market in the summer, however, could be another story with Paris Saint-Germain’s Christopher Nkunku just one name currently being linked with a move to the Emirates.
The Daily Mirror reports Nkunku, who is unhappy over his lack of involvement in the first team, will not be kept at PSG against his will and will be allowed to leave for Arsenal if that is his desire.
All things considered, that can only be seen as a positive development for the Gunners who would be wise to take advantage of the opportunity that is presenting itself.
Alex Iwobi’s form has picked up in recent weeks but, overall, Arsenal are not currently spoilt with options out wide — especially when it comes to that position on the left flank.
Signing Nkunku, who can also play on the opposite side and in midfield, would help address that.
To go with his versatility, the 21-year-old also has pace, vision and a wicked delivery from set pieces in his locker, things which could help reinvigorate an Arsenal attack that can, at times, look a bit flat following Alexis Sanchez’s exit and Mesut Ozil’s banishing.
