It is inevitable that Arsenal will not enough funds in the summer transfer window since their chances of getting a UEFA Champions League spot are still very low despite being eight points behind fourth placed Chelsea and them quickly getting knocked out of the UEFA Europa League means that they’ll only qualify for it via a top four or five finish depending on Manchester City’s UEFA case. The COVID-19 will also have affected the financial stability of the club.
Team Talk is currently reporting that Arsenal will indeed try to sign Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser on a free deal since his current contract with the Cherries will expire at the end of the season, and with them likely to get relegated, he won’t be renewing his deal with them.
