Mikel Arteta ‘ready’ to accept £65m Arsenal transfer loss to secure FFP summer deal


Arsenal is actively focusing on preparations for the upcoming summer transfer window as they aim to enhance their squad despite being in contention for the Premier League title under Mikel Arteta. The January transfer window proved challenging, with financial constraints imposed by Financial Fair Play and Profit and Sustainability rules, restricting their pursuit of a new striker. Despite a significant expenditure of £250 million last summer, including a substantial £105 million for Declan Rice, Arsenal plans to address key positions such as central midfield, striker, and centre-back in the upcoming window. However, a surprising report from Spain suggests a potential shift in transfer strategies, indicating growing frustration within the club hierarchy regarding Kai Havertz’s performances. The German, who arrived for £65 million from Chelsea, has scored five times in 33 appearances this season, leading to concerns and a reported ‘loss of patience’ with Havertz. While the likelihood of a transfer seems slim, this development adds an unexpected dimension to Arsenal’s transfer considerations.
