Arsenal completed its 2021-22 Premier League season recently and the summer transfer window opens soon. So, it is time to discuss some Arsenal transfer rumors. Let’s get into what we are hearing so far.

Arsenal Transfer Rumors: Likely Outgoings

Alexandre Lacazette

There are a number of players who are unlikely to be in Arsenal’s plans moving forward. One of these players is Alexandre Lacazette. As I am sure all of you know, Lacazette is likely to depart on a free transfer. Lacazette is getting interest primarily from Lyon and FC Barcelona at this stage.

Bernd Leno

Another player who is very likely to leave Arsenal this summer is Bernd Leno. Leno quickly became the Gunners’ backup keeper this season as Ramsdale replaced him in the starting eleven. Furthermore, with the 8 million pound signing of Matt Turner from New England Revolution, Leno would be further down the pecking order at Arsenal. A fee of between 20-25 million pounds for Leno seems reasonable. Leno could see a move to Portuguese giant Benfica.

Nicolas Pepe

Nicolas Pepe also seems likely to leave Arsenal this summer. Saka took his spot on the right wing and limited Pepe to substitute appearances. Pepe plays well sometimes, but his inconsistency is frustrating. Arsenal could recoup approximately 25 million pounds for Pepe in a potential move. Pepe is receiving interest from Paris Saint-Germain right now.

Possible Incomings

Oleksandr Zinchenko

Arsenal are looking to strengthen the squad, naturally. Oleksandr Zinchenko of Manchester City is one player that has reportedly attracted Arsenal’s attention. The 25-year-old Ukrainian international only made 15 Premier League appearances for Manchester City this season. He might seek a move elsewhere for greater playing time. A fee of 25 million pounds seems reasonable for Zinchenko.

Gabriel Jesus

Arsenal also wants Gabriel Jesus to bolster their attacking options. Jesus made 28 Premier League appearances for Manchester City last season, scoring 8 goals in the process. However, Manchester City’s signing of Erling Haaland will limit his playing time moving forward. As a result, Jesus’s departure is likely and he would certainly strengthen Arsenal’s attack. Manchester City reportedly want 50 million pounds for Jesus, but 40 million pounds is a more reasonable price-tag for the Brazilian forward.

Serge Gnabry Is Part of the Arsenal Transfer Rumors

Arsenal is also seeking a return to North London for Serge Gnabry. Gnabry left Arsenal in 2016 and has blossomed into a world-class player at German giant Bayern Munich. Gnabry is in the final year of his contract and contract renewal negotiations seem to have stalled between himself and Bayern Munich. The German international is also receiving interest from Real Madrid. Gnabry would significantly bolster Arsenal’s attack and 40 million pounds is the reported fee for Gnabry.

Youri Tielemans

Arsenal also wants to sign Youri Tielemans from Leicester City. Tielemans is also in the latter stages of his contract with Leicester. He would add a new dynamic to Arsenal’s midfield alongside Partey and Odegaard. Leicester City would reportedly accept a 40-million-pound fee for Tielemans.
