Arsenal news: Mikel Arteta equips alternative transfer as Brighton star’s price is revealed

In nine days, when the summer transfer window opens, Arsenal’s scheduled summer spending will commence, with Mikel Arteta seeking new signings as he prepares for another tilt at the Premier League and Champions League.

Despite their second-place finish, the team’s fragility was arguably exposed in the final weeks of the season, as an injury to Williams Saliba appeared to derail their championship bid. And the club has been linked to a multitude of players prior to the 2023/24 season.

Moises Caicedo of Brighton and Declan Rice of West Ham appear at the top of the list, with a bidding war for the England star due to begin after West Ham’s Conference League final on Wednesday.
Arsenal learn the pricing for Super League superstar Galatasaray immediately. Sacha Boey, one of their Super Lig title-winning talents, has been linked with a transfer to the Emirates.

Mikel Arteta has discovered that he must pay £21,6 million for the French under-20 international. However, negotiations are reportedly at a very preliminary stage.

Soon after joining the Turkish powers in 2021 from Rennes, Boey became a first-team regular. The player is also eligible to represent Cameroon, and national coach Rigobert Song has included him twice in international squads, but he has yet to appear for the Indomitable Lions.
Brighton assigns Caicedo a price tag of £100 million.
Arsenal has reportedly agreed to personal terms with Moises Caicedo, putting them in the lead in the race to acquire the player.

However, since Chelsea is also intrigued and the Ecuadorian signed a new contract in January, the Seagulls are in a strong position to negotiate. Indeed, it now appears that the Gunners will need to break their own transfer record in order to acquire the services of the 21-year-old.

According to The Secret Scout, Brighton is reportedly seeking in excess of £100 million for their star midfielder, while teammate Mac Allister is reportedly en route to Liverpool. However, the club is willing to reduce their asking price if they can acquire a player in an exchange.
Arsenal icon eyes PSG position
Thierry Henry could be a member of Julian Nagelsmann’s administrative staff should he be named PSG manager this summer.

Since departing Bayern Munich earlier this year, the German manager has been unemployed, but he has been considered for jobs at Chelsea and Tottenham. Nonetheless, he remains available, and the French champions view him as a possible replacement for Christophe Galtier.

Henry, who has no history with Nagelsmann, could be a member of the Paris coaching staff, according to The Telegraph. Henry has previously served as an assistant with the Belgian national team and as manager of Monaco in Ligue 1 for a brief period.

If the transfer materializes, Arteta may have to be wary of a possible PSG player assault on the club Henry knows intimately.
