The Gunners appear undaunted and have moved on from the pain of missing out on Champions League qualification to their north London rivals Tottenham.
A long-standing deal to sign USA international goalkeeper Matt Turner, the 27-year-old is expected to join his new team-mates for pre-season training later this month.
Arsenal, meanwhile, have acted decisively this week to secure a £34million deal for Portugal Under-21 star Fabio Vieira from Porto, subsequently confirming they had resolved Eddie Nketiah’s long-term future.
The forward appeared destined to leave on a free transfer this summer but after an impressive end to the campaign, the Hale End Academy graduate has made a remarkable turnaround by signing a new contract.
Brazil youngster Marquinhos has also arrived from Sao Paulo but Arsenal are far from done there, they say Daily Mail.
Arsenal’s already long-running quest for Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus will soon come to a swift conclusion as the player desperately seeks to link up and reunite with Mikel Arteta.
Arsenal’s opening bid of around £30m fell well short of City’s valuation but all parties are confident a compromise can be reached quickly.
Arteta will then focus on signing versatile Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez, who has also been on Manchester United’s radar.
Arsenal have already turned down an opening £30m offer but will return with an improved offer and are said to once again be confident of reaching an agreement with the player keen to join.
Martinez, an Argentina international, plays predominantly at left-back in the middle but can also function as a full-back where Arsenal are looking for reliable cover for Kieran Tierney, who is still recovering from a knee injury.
