Transfers during the summer off-season
The Gunners’ biggest transfer this summer was the signing of Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City for €52.20m. Many experts believe that it was the signing of the Brazilian that became the key in the development of Arsenal as a contender for the championship this season. Also, the team of Michel Arteta acquired the Ukrainian left-back “Citizens” Oleksandr Zinchenko. The transfer amount was 35 million euros. Another significant transfer is the purchase of Porto attacking midfielder Fabio Vieira for 35 million euros.
Other signings include New England goaltender Matt Turner for €6.36m and Sao Paulo right winger Marquinhos for €3.5m. An important event for the club was the return from loan (Marseille) of central defender William Saliba, who became the main one in the team.
Arsenal’s main goals for the winter transfer window 2023
At the World Cup in Qatar, the main creator of the attack of the Gunners, Gabriel Jesus, received an unpleasant knee injury, in connection with which, the Brazilian needed an operation, recovery after which will take as much as 3 months. This is a big loss for Arsenal, because in terms of pressing, aiming at the opponents’ goal, Jesus was the main player in attack. To be sure, the replacement of Jesus by Eddie Nketiah will be the biggest blow for the London club, therefore, many experts suggest that Arsenal will make attempts to short-term increase their attack on the position of an attacking midfielder or winger.
