How Arsenal could line-up next season with White, Maddison and Abraham

The Gunners are ramping up their transfer activity and could bring in as many as six new players during the summer transfer window to provide manager Mikel Arteta with a fresh starting lineup.

Arsenal's transfer business is picking up steam, with Mikel Arteta pursuing a number of targets as his third acquisition of the summer window.

Nuno Tavares and Albert Sambi Lokonga have already joined the club, and the Gunners are nearing an agreement to bring Ben White to the Emirates Stadium.

Arteta is also interested in Aaron Ramsdale and Tammy Abraham, with Arsenal apparently willing to send two players to Leicester in return for James Maddison.


The Spaniard's starting lineup for the forthcoming season is expected to be much different from the one that finished seventh in the Premier League last season.

The first name on the teamsheet to alter will be Ramsdale, who will take over for Bernd Leno in goal.

The Gunners are ready to make a £30 million move for the Englishman, who has impressed for the Blades.

Bukayo Saka will start at right-back after starring in England's journey to the Euro 2020 final, as Arteta attempts to inject more creativity into his side.

Inside Saka will be £50 million men White, who is close to completing his much-anticipated move from Brighton and will immediately become one of Arsenal's first-choice center-backs.

Rob Holding, who was one of Arsenal's most consistent performances last season, will partner White.

Despite the acquisition of Tavares from Benfica, Kieran Tierney remains Arsenal's first-choice left-back and appears destined to become the club's captain at some point in the future.

Despite a rocky first season at Arsenal after joining from Atletico Madrid, Thomas Partey will retain his starting spot in defensive midfield.

It is anticipated that a fresh partner can bring out the best in the Ghanian, and Arteta believes Lokonga might be that man following his arrival from Anderlecht.

The 21-year-old has made 78 appearances for Anderlecht since making his debut in December 2017.

With Emile Smith-Rowe seemingly certain to stay at Arsenal, Arteta will give him a starting berth out wide.

Maddison, who has starred for Leicester since joining from Norwich, would play as the central offensive midfielder in Arteta's 4-2-3-1 formation.

Maddison has 21 goals and 17 assists in three Premier League seasons with Leicester, and Arteta has identified him as the Gunners' creative power.

On the opposite flank to Saka will be Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who will be hoping that last season's slump was only a blip.

With Aubameyang returning to his preferred wing position, Abraham will lead the line as the single striker.

He is apparently expected to join on loan from Chelsea, where he has fallen out of favor despite being the Blues' most regular striker in recent seasons.
