Much has been made of Arsenal’s summer spending intentions. After missing out on Champions League qualification for seven consecutive seasons, Arsenal are back and Mikel Arteta’s squad needs strengthening more than ever.

The north Londoners failed to capture their first Premier League title in 19 years as a result of a three-win streak in their final nine games. Now, Arsenal must continue Arteta’s turnaround at the Emirates Stadium and narrow the distance with Manchester City.

The Gunners are anticipated to invest heavily in the coming months. Priority is a new midfielder, with West Ham captain Declan Rice at the head of Arteta’s list. The 24-year-old’s £90 million price tag will challenge the resolve of sporting director Edu Gaspar.

Moises Caicedo is among the midfielders linked with a move to north London, along with several others. Tyler Adams, a standout for the U.S. national team, may be the solution to Arsenal’s midfield woes.

This season, the 24-year-old was a standout for a struggling squad, adapting accordingly to the physical and tactical demands of Premier League football.

As a result of Leeds’ relegation to the Championship, he is likely to be one of a number of players sold to generate funds for an Elland Road rebuild.

Liverpool, Manchester United, Newcastle, and Tottenham are all considering a move for the defensive midfielder, according to 90min. Also interested are organizations from Germany, Italy, and Spain.

Adams may not be the most enticing name associated with Arsenal, but acquiring his services would be a shrewd move.

The former RB Salzburg star ranks in the 99th percentile for tackles made and the 97th percentile for blocks, according to FBRef, whereas Arsenal’s current midfield anchor, Thomas Partey, ranks in the 75th percentile and 20th percentile, respectively.

Adams is a relatively risk-free alternative to Rice, with the CIES Football Observatory valuing him at $16 million.

In addition to providing backup for Partey in the defensive midfield region, Adams will also link up with international teammate Matt Turner at Arsenal.

It is currently unknown whether Edu and Arteta will attempt to acquire Adams. Understandably, the emphasis is on maximizing efforts for Rice.

With Granit Xhaka’s impending departure to Bayer Leverkusen, however, the United States star remains a viable option.
