Arsenal are gearing up for a busy transfer window, both in terms of incomings and outgoings.


The Gunners came agonisingly close to winning the Premier League title in the season just gone. And after two successive second-place finishes, boss Mikel Arteta is desperate for his side to finally overhaul Manchester City.


To do that his squad will need reinforcements and at the top of the list is a new striker. Benjamin Sesko has emerged as a top target and the Slovenian international has now been backed to thrive in the English top-flight.


That tips comes as Bayern Munich launched a pursuit of Gunners star Oleksandr Zinchenko. Here, Mirror Football rounds up all the latest Arsenal news.

Sesko tip sent

Benjamin Sesko has been backed to thrive in the Premier League if he joins Arsenal. Sesko has been heavily linked with a move to the Gunners, as well as Chelsea, and Blues star Djordje Petrovic believes he has all the qualities to be a success.


“I know [about the Chelsea rumours] and have been following him. He’s having a good half-season, he’s in great scoring form. I read that he’s scored in his last seven matches in a row. He seems to have gained strong momentum for the Euros,” Petrovic told to Nogomania.


“He’s a forward who has everything a modern player needs. He’s tall, strong, fast and intelligent. I’ve watched some of his matches. Of course he can play in the Premier League. Absolutely! He has great potential and he’s been successfully proving it in recent months.”

Alan Shearer believes Arsenal still need to bring in two ‘top-quality’ players if they are to win win the Premier League next season. The Newcastle legend insisted that the Gunners are capable of ‘big things’ but a successful summer window is needed.


“We got it spot on,” Shearer gloated on the Rest is Football podcast, referring to his pre-season prediction that Arsenal would finish second. “Pushing City all the way, that’s what they did, until the last game of the season.


“They’ve improved, Declan Rice improved them, and he’s had a good season. I think big things are to come from Arsenal if they can get two top-quality players to add to what they have already got, I think they could do it next season.”


Bayern launch Zinchenko pursuit

Bayern Munich are sizing up a move for Oleksandr Zinchenko, with the Ukranian having dropped down the pecking order at Arsenal. The 27-year-old slipped behind Takehiro Tomiyasu and Jakub Kiwior under Mikel Arteta.


That has led to suggestions that he could depart the Emirates Stadium this summer, just two years after he joined for £34million. He has now emerged as a target for Bayern, who are set to lose Alphonso Davies to Real Madrid.


The German giants are keeping tabs on Zinchenko and could make him Vincent Kompany’s first signing. Zinchenko played alongside Kompany for three years at Manchester City and his attributes align with Kompany’s style of play.
