Arsenal could complete three transfer deals before August as Arteta spends big

Arsenal could still make three more transfer deals ahead of August, as Mikel Arteta looks to bounce back from the Gunners' worst season in a quarter of a century.

Arteta's men ended the season with no European football to show for their efforts, and Arsenal slumped to an eighth-place finish, two points ahead of Leeds United and Everton, respectively.

And Arsenal have been looking to bolster their squad to launch an assault on the Champions League spots next campaign.

However, Arsenal could yet make three more signings before August after the Gunners have all but wrapped up a move for Ben White.

Arteta's side have agreed a deal in principle with Brighton to bring England's ball-playing centre-half, Ben White, to the Emirates for a sweet £50million.

White is currently on holiday with his former teammate Kalvin Phillips, and so his medical, and deal, will be completed upon his return.

However, Arsenal are wasting no time in nailing down their second target, and Anderlecht's Albert Sambi Lokonga could be next in line to be announced.

Arsenal have reportedly agreed an £18million fee for the youngster, and Het Nieuwsblad are reporting Lokonga has already picked out the number he will wear for the Gunners.

The Athletic are also reporting that the Gunners see Aaron Ramsdale as an ideal understudy for Bernt Leno, with the hope he can one day take the no.1 shirt.

Like White, Ramsdale was a part of England's Euro 2020 squad, and he was, reportedly, a popular member of the dressing room.

However, there is still some distance between Sheffield United's £40million valuation and what Arsenal are willing to spend.
