Arteta's Ideal Transfer Opportunity As Saliba Reveals The Conditions For Arsenal's Return

Hello, Gunner. Have you read them yet? If not, here's what's hot from Arsenal.

James Maddison's Boost

Brendan Rodgers wants to bring in a center back, a midfielder, and a striker this summer. Leicester, according to the Mirror, will be willing to offload some of their stars in order to fund these transfers. Interestingly, James Maddison has been named as one of the players Leicester will be willing to let go.

Arsenal were heavily linked with Maddison's signature last summer, but no agreement was reached. With 13 goals in 40 appearances for Leicester this season, I see no reason why Arteta and Edu should pass up the opportunity to sign the exceptional playmaker.

Odegaard may be "undroppable" as Arsenal's number 10, but if Maddison is signed, he could provide some positive competition for the Norwegian and give Arteta a number of options in attack.

An Update to Calvert-Lewin's Links

Arsenal are looking to sign a striker in the upcoming transfer window. Arsenal have been linked with a number of strikers. Dominic Calvert-Lewin is one player who has been linked with a move to the Emirates on numerous occasions.

Despite rumors that he could be available on a cheap deal, Arteta and Edu are considering abandoning their pursuit of the Everton man. According to reports, the Gunners are concerned about Calvert-Lewin's recurring injuries this season. Injuries have rendered him ineffective in the Premier League this campaign.

Saliba's Bold Claim

The future of William Saliba has been the subject of speculation. The Arsenal defender is currently on loan at Marseille, and many Arsenal fans are hoping he will return to bolster the Gunners' defense next season. Is he guaranteed a spot in Arteta's first team if he returns?

I doubt it, given how steadfast Ben White and Gabriel have been in Arteta's defense. However, when it comes to his desire to return to Arsenal, Saliba has stated unequivocally that he will only do so if he is guaranteed a spot in Arteta's first team. In an interview with Sport Witness, Saliba stated:

"I can’t be happy on Arsenal’s bench. I want to play as a starter. Afterwards, if I enter the rotation as a substitute, it’s not like being in the U23s and never being in the squad."
