Arsenal: Arteta's Big Summer Budget, Abraham Leaves The Door Open For A Move To The Emirates

Arsenal ended the season in style, thrashing Everton 5-1.

Now that the league season is over, Arteta can concentrate on finding a long-term replacement for Aubameyang (who left in January) and Lacazette, who is also leaving. If Arteta heard what Abraham, one of his top targets, said this weekend, he would not wonder who to sign, but instead would gather resources to sign the striker, who has already scored 17 league goals in his debut season in Serie A. 

According to the Mirror, Abraham recently told the media about his chances of staying or leaving AS Roma, "(As Roma) They’ve given me the opportunity to show myself, my heart is here. We’ll see what the future holds, but my heart is here."

If "we'll see what the future holds" isn't a hint that he's open to available options, such as a move to Arsenal, then I'm not sure what is. (Mirror)

Meanwhile, Arteta would like to add to his squad. Arsenal finished fifth in the recently concluded league season, five positions higher than the previous season, after spending at least £156 million.

Next season, Arsenal is expected to finish higher than fifth, if not in the top three. To finish there, Arsenal will need significant reinforcements this summer. TBR claims that is exactly what they would get. TBR writes, 

"The Independent has claimed that the Arsenal board are willing to spend up to £250m on new arrivals this summer. That could mean a huge summer for the Gunners, and even a potential record-breaking signing or two."

We've already seen a £76 million offer (which was rejected) from Arsenal for Osimhen, indicating that the Gunners are willing to spend. (TBR)
