Arsenal are planning to complete the permanent transfer of David Raya after a successful loan spell at the club.

Arsenal summer transfer plans

Arteta speaking in a press conference ahead of their home clash with Brentford insisted on having a clear transfer strategy.

He said: “The plans that we have for the summer are very clear. The understanding what we can have, contract situations with some players, and how we can improve certain areas of the team.”

It appears one of his plans is to finalize a deal that keeps Raya permanently at the club. This would allow the club to focus on other areas of their squad during the summer transfer window.

Arteta is also set to prioritize the signing of a striker, with many forwards linked to Arsenal in recent weeks.

Aaron Ramsdale’s future at Arsenal has long been in doubt since he lost his position to Raya five games into the season. Raya has made the starting position his own with some commanding displays.

Ramsdale may play his last match for the club this weekend against Brentford given that Raya is not permitted to play against his parent club.

Ramsdale open to Chelsea switch

It has been reported that he has already made the decision to leave Arsenal in the summer in a bid to improve his chances of being in the England squad.

Ramsdale himself is said to be open to a switch to Chelsea who want to complete a deal early on. The feeling is that he is assured of a starting position ahead of Chelsea’s current options.

Chelsea are in need of a shot stopper despite Djordje Petrovic’s performance in recent weeks. They have also been linked with Giorgi Mamardashvili who turns out for Valencia in Spain.
