Arsenal are reportedly making progress on two signings who could be worth a combined £40million in this summer’s transfer window.
The Daily Star claims that Unai Emery’s side are closing in on a £20m deal to sign Saint-Etienne youngster William Saliba, though they may have to loan him back to the Ligue 1 club as part of that deal.
The same report also claims that the Gunners are getting ready a fresh £20m bid for Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney, and Arsenal will hope this renewed offer can finally bring the Scotland international to the Emirates Stadium.
It’s previously been claimed by the Guardian that the north Londoners would bid about £18m for Tierney and were confident that would be adequate, so there should be a good reason to think £20m can soon get the deal done.
These two would be excellent signings to fix Arsenal’s dodgy defence, which let in 51 goals in the Premier League last term.
That’s obviously an area where Arsenal will need to improve a great deal if they are to break into the top four next term.
