The new Premier League campaign will start in a few months from now and the gunners will hope to have finished all their transfer business by the time the new season kicks off. It will be interesting to see who will become Arsenal’s best players next season and surprise the fans as when Bukayo Saka became the most important player at the Emirates Stadium last season. So here are three players that will surprise Arsenal fans.
1. WILLIAM SALIBA
Arsenal completed the signing of William Saliba from Saint-Ettienne in the 2019 summer transfer window and he has been out on loan in the past two seasons since the gunners thought it would be better to let him gain that needed experience in France. William Saliba has now returned to the Emirates Stadium and will be in the squad for next season.
Even though Saliba will likely first play in the cup competitions especially the UEFA Europa League, he will however show his quality in the Arsenal shirt for the first time. Saliba was very impressive in the French Ligue one and he will definitely adapt to the Premier League as despite his height, he’s a relatively fast defender that won’t be intimidated by defenders of the English sides.
2. FABIO VIEIRA
Arsenal completed the signing of Fabio Vieira from Porto this summer and the fans will be eagerly waiting to see what he can do in the pre-season matches. Fabio Vieira is an outstanding central midfielder that the gunners signed to bolster their squad since it seemed to struggle last season whenever Granit Xhaka or Thomas Partey got injured.
Fabio Vieira is a player that will also surprise Arsenal fans as he is a highly rated attacking midfielder that will be used as either a number 10 or 8 as per reports. Vieira will probably be mostly deployed in the no.8 position since this will then allow Arteta to still start his other attacking midfielder such as Martin Odegaard or Emile Smith Rowe.
