Updates on the ongoing efforts of Premier League giants Arsenal to reinforce the club’s squad ahead of the 2022/23 campaign have been provided on Sunday.
The transfer team at the Emirates, of course, have been hard at work across the summer to date.
Evidently keen to build on their climb to 5th in the Premier League last time out, the Gunners have already secured a quartet of fresh faces, in the form of Matt Turner, Marquinhos, Fabio Vieira and Gabriel Jesus.

With the likes of Tottenham and Chelsea continuing to strengthen around them, though, Edu Gaspar and co. are understood to be pushing hard for yet further additions to Mikel Arteta’s squad.
A left-sided defender, central midfielder and attacker are all still on the wishlist of the powers that be on the red half of north London.
And now, as alluded to above, an insight into the latest on two such players tipped to take their talents to Arsenal before the summer is out has been provided.
The players in question? Edon Zhegrova and N’Golo Kante.
Lille winger Zhegrova has been widely reported as a backup target to reinforce the attacking ranks at the Emirates, on the back of the club’s failed pursuit of Leeds United standout Raphinha.
Links with Chelsea mainstay Kante, meanwhile, first surfaced this weekend, amid the suggestion that Arsenal could look to take advantage of the Frenchman’s precarious contract situation.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, however, has moved to play down such links.
On Sunday, the Italian has revealed that, contrary to prior reports, the Gunners have not tabled an offer for Zhegrova, whilst negotiations, at present, are not taking place over Kante’s potential signing, either.
Arsenal have not submitted any proposal for Lille winger Edon Zhegrova and there are no negotiations ongoing to sign N’Golo Kanté from Chelsea, as things stand. #AFC
