Upamecano has been under Arsenal’s radar for quite some time now. He’s viewed as an ideal signing due to his age, top-flight experience and ability.
The Leipzig man boasts of incredible composure and ball distribution abilities thus allowing him to play the ball out of the back.
With William Saliba set to arrive at Arsenal in the summer, Upamecano could prove to be the perfect partner for the Frenchman.
Arsenal’s search for a new centre-back could lead them to signing one of the best defenders of the past decade, Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng.
Boateng possesses large amounts of experience at the highest level having won multiple Bundesliga titles with Bayern along with a Champions League trophy.
His experience would prove invaluable to Arsenal as they look to fight their way up the table in the second half of the season.
Reports suggest that Atletico Madrid are willing to offload Thomas Lemar this month, as such, Arsenal could make a move for the Frenchman to bolster their attacking options.
The Gunners have made multiple attempts to sign Lemar in the past, all of which fell through, however, based on his current situation at Atletico, Arsenal should be able to secure his services if they make a good offer.
The 24-year-old is yet to score a goal or make an assist in La Liga this season, but he remains a quality player, who at the very least, could offer Arsenal some much-needed squad depth.
Rabiot possesses great speed of thought and the ability to dictate the proceedings in the middle of the park. He also boasts incredible physicality standing at 6’2.
His huge frame makes him dominant in the air and also enables him to consistently win the ball off of his opposition.
Soumare has emerged as a potential signing for Arsenal in recent weeks but the Gunners will have to fight off interest from Manchester United and Chelsea both of whom are keen on adding the Lille man to their respective squads.
The 20-year-old has featured in 17 Ligue 1 games for Lille this season, establishing himself as one of the best young midfielders in the French top-flight.
Soumare is a technically gifted midfielder who is great at distributing the ball. He boasts an expansive skillset which allows him to perform multiple roles in Lille’s midfield.
He’d be an excellent addition to the Gunners’ midfield set-up should they manage to acquire his services.
