Arsenal plot to re-sign former Gunner for huge fee as star Arteta’s successor

The Gunners are in the right mix to win the game’s two biggest prizes this season, topping the table in the Premier League with just 10 matches left, while they are paired with Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. League. Now approaching the business end of the season, Arsenal supporters will be hoping that they can at least perform better in the title race than last year and will also hope that they can help Harry Kane’s trophy hopes in their European match-ups. Can be finished once again.

Next up in the Premier League is against three-time defending champions Manchester City at the Etihad; A win in the match would go a long way to a first title crowning in 20 years, although any win in the Citizens’ fortress is always a big ask.

Arsenal plot

Regardless of how this season turns out, Edu and Mikel Arteta are busy planning the next phase of Arsenal’s rebuild. The club has made great progress under the duo, but like any top football club, you cannot stand still and there is always room for improvement.

With this in mind, the Gunners are set to focus their summer transfer plans on two key signings: a new midfielder and a new striker.

Preparations for a new No.9 are already underway and the Gunners have drawn up a ‘long list’ of 10 top-tier striker targets.

Arsenal set to re-sign Ismael Bennacer as price is revealed

In terms of a new central midfielder, the Gunners have a number of options in mind and finding a new partner for Declan Rice is likely to be a major part of the club’s transfer plans.

A number of names are already being touted as potential options, with Real Sociedad’s Martin Zubimendi and Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich both among the possible names.

But strong new reports in the Italian media on Thursday now claim Arsenal are keenly interested in re-signing their former star Bennacer, who left the Emirates Stadium in 2016 having made just one senior appearance for the Gunners Was.

After initially joining Empoli on a cut-price deal, Bennacer signed for AC Milan in the summer of 2019 for an initial €16m fee.

And that move has paid off seriously and the Algerian has established himself as one of the leading midfielders in Serie A.

Indeed, while his season has been largely disrupted by a knee injury – only making his first appearance of the campaign in December – he has since been linked with a move to Manchester City.

However, Calciomercato claim the most interest is from Arsenal and, after reportedly making an initial inquiry for his services, have now been informed of the price required to lure him away.

And according to the Italian outlet, Milan are willing to consider his departure if their €50m (£42.8m) valuation is met.

The Gunners are said to be considering it, however, allowing the 26-year-old to leave for a nominal fee would not be seen as great business sense by the North London giants.

Party time over for Arsenal star Thomas?

The need for a new midfielder is urgent for Arsenal with Mohamed Elneny set to depart as a free agent and Jorginho’s deal also set to expire and his agent has warned the Gunners of all three sides who are planning to take over in Italy. Trying to. Emerge as a free agent.

According to widespread reports, Arteta would like to keep Jorginho on an extension, although the fact that they have not yet opened talks with his agent may suggest otherwise.

Furthermore, it has also been suggested that Arteta and Edu are looking for a new midfielder as an upgrade to Thomas Partey, who has endured a tough time in north London recently.

The £45m (€50m) signing from Atletico Madrid in 2020 has made just seven appearances this season, hampered by a number of frustrating injuries.


Publicly, Arteta has expressed his confidence in the Ghanaian people. However, at the age of 30 and, with his deal set to expire in 2025, it seems Arsenal are planning for life after the star who has become a force to be reckoned with and is someone the Gunners are now banking on. Can’t trust.

Partey has found himself linked with a move to the Saudi Pro League and it would be no surprise if Arsenal let him leave this summer.

Commanding reported wages of £200,000 per week (£10.4m per year), the Gunners made a huge saving by moving him on with cash set aside to reinvest in his replacement. It remains to be seen whether Bennacer proves to be that man.
