Highlighting Arsenal transfer targets for the summer transfer window in 2021
1. Alassane Plea (Borussia Mönchengladbach)
This is not coming as a surprise but owing to his impressive performance lately with Borussia Mönchengladbach in the Bundesliga.
Plea on his part forms a core part of Mönchengladbach and has consistently turned up on very big occasions.
Plea was the team’s mainstay in the attack most especially the club’s involvements in UEFA Champions League from the group stages.
During the 2019/2020 season, Plea was an inspiration as he led the attack which made huge gains by qualifying for the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League that year alongside Real Madrid in the same.
He is an ideal striker that would turn out to be the main weapon in the attack for the London based club.
2. Nabil Fekir (Real Betis)
However, he still poses a threat in the middle of the park and Gunners top hierarchy had identified him as a suitable option for the midfield.
3. Yves Bissouma (Brighton)
Bissouma might have struggled with his place at Brighton a few seasons ago, but there’s a lot of improvements lately.
The Malian midfielder is also another option left for the club.
4. Julian Brandt (Borussia Dortmund)
Brandt could be enjoying himself in the German Bundesliga, but there’s still more to play for and Arsenal who has identified him as a top transfer target offers him a new pathway in his career.
For Dortmund in the Bundesliga, there’s been ups and downs in the club’s performance in a League dominated by Bayern Munich who has the best legs in the division to play with.
Brandt is capable of bringing stability to the team if properly handed to his best position.
5. Glen Kamara (Rangers)
Kamara is currently enjoying the best moments of his career with Glasgow Rangers in the Scottish Premiership in the past couple of months.
He was also in the Scottish League winning squad for Rangers who lifted its first Scotland league title since the start of the Premiership Era amid Celtic dominance.

Although not much can be said of this player. But he is currently one of the best performers at the EFL Championship club aiming for promotion to the English Premier League after several near misses.

He has been one of the top outstanding talents at Real Betis.
How Arsenal plans to improve on its first team will define the clubs future in the English Premier League.
