After a season in which Arsenal largely flattered to decisive, the Gunners are set to conduct a major squad overhaul in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Mikel Arteta’s men finished eighth in the Premier League in the campaign just gone, missing out on European football.
The Gunners are ready to bring in major reinforcements to boost Arteta’s squad, with a striker, midfielder and left-back all on the shopping list.
Ther will also be departures from the Emirates Stadium, with several stars failing to provide the quality that Arsenal need.
Gunners ‘interested’ in Brazilian ace
One of Arsenal’s main targets this summer is a new striker, with Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang having failed to provide the goals required.
The Gunners scored the lowest amount of goals of any team who finished in the top-half of the Premier League.
With Eddie Nketiah set to depart the Emirates Stadium, that has opened up a space for a young striker in Arteta’s squad.
It appears that the man Arteta has found to fill that gap is Brazilian youngster Yuri Alberto, with Globoesporte reporting Arsenal are interested in the 20-year-old.Alberto scored seven goals in 20 games for Internacional this season, though has mainly been used as a substitute.
The Gunners are one of a number of clubs chasing his signature, with the Brazilian valued at around £6million by transfermarkt.
