Shakhtar Donetsk is demanding a maximum of PS87million (EUR100m), for the Ukraine star. This would be a signal from Arsenal midway through the season.
Facundo Tores, Orlando City’s footballer, is also on the Gunners radar. He would be a more affordable option. Arteta may need to strengthen the squad, rather than the starting team with Gabriel Martinelli’s and Bukayo Saka’s performances this term.
Ronaldo wouldn’t be the right signing for this reason. He would be a good fit for any team. Jesus transformed this Arsenal team, despite his inability to score goals.
Recent seasons have seen Arteta and Edu work well together in the transfer market. Arsenal fans will hope that this continues in January.
