Although we have been told that Arsenal only have a transfer budget of around £45 million, there is clearly some inaccuracies in these reports given that the Gunners have paid over £70 million to sign Nicolas Pepe, and continue to pursue a move for Celtic’s Kieran Tierney. There is also the chance that Arsenal could raise more funds with the sale of Shkodran Mustafi, who has been linked with a move for Monaco and has been a bit of a liability over the last couple of seasons. 

A player who has been linked with a move to North London is Benfica’s Ruben Dias. The centre back has also been linked with a switch to Manchester United, and has a release clause of £57 million, though it has been suggested that Arsenal will look to negotiate that fee. He did show in Portugal that he is a very capable defender, but the question will be asked as to whether he can adapt to English football, and whether he is worth the risk for that sort of money.
