Arsenal Transfer Targets Want Champions League Assurance
Arsenal head of football Raul Sanllehi has said the club is in a strong position in the transfer market but qualification for the Champions League could be a decisive factor in whether they are able to secure top targets.
Arsenal can qualify for the UCL if they beat Chelsea in the Europa League final on May 29, but will miss out if they lose after finishing fifth in the Premier League.
Gunners manager Unai Emery spent close to £70 million during his first summer in charge, signing Lucas Torreira, Bernd Leno, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Matteo Guendouzi, and Sanllehi has said the manager has been working with Arsenal’s scouts in drawing up possible signings ahead of next season.
