Sambi Lokonga is a top target for Arsenal this summer. Moreover, the midfielder is one of Anderlecht’s key players and has worn the captain’s armband on multiple occasions.

The Gunners are likely to sell both Granit Xhaka and Matteo Guendouzi this month. Indeed, central midfield is a key area for Mikel Arteta this summer, with the Basque manager seemingly eager to sign a partner for Thomas Partey.

Fans are keen for the club to make signings this summer that can take the club back into the top-four of the Premier League. Furthermore, Arsenal have already missed out on Emi Buendia, whilst the Athletic report that Martin Odegaard is likely to stay at Real Madrid next season.
