Dominik Szoboszlai

Club: Red Bull Salzburg

Age: 19

Nationality: Hungarian 

If Gunners are in the demand for a young midfield creator this summer, few fit the bill better than Szoboszlai.

The Hungarian has caught the eye for Red Bull Salzburg this season, enrolling 10 assists in the Austrian Bundesliga and generating 12 big chances over the course of the 2019/20 march, according to Football Critic.

Arsenal would face stiff tournament for Szoboszlai, though. AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain have both been linked with a move for the 19 year old.

Marc Roca

Club: Espanyol

Age: 23

Nationality: Spanish

Having formerly been reported to be interested in Roca, the Gunners might now stand a good chance of drawing him to north London.

Espanyol have just been referred from La Liga, meaning they are almost specific to sell key players in order to bring down their wage bill over the summer. The Spaniard could, therefore, be accessible for a knock-down price.

Roca would be a good signing for Gunners. He plays at the base of the midfield rather than in the number 10 role, but it is from this position that he is eligible of picking open opposition defences.

Luis Alberto

Club: Lazio

Age: 27

Nationality: Spanish

Alberto might have been a flop at The Reds, but he has since become one of Europe’s most prolific skillful players.

The 27 year old has notched 14 assists in 31 Serie A appearances for Lazio this season, creating 12 big chances - a condition where a player should politely be expected to score - over the course of the 2019/20 season.

According to Football Critic, only Lorenzo Pellegrini (15) and Alejandro Gomez (14) have created more.

The Spaniard is a true playmaker. He would sit at the apex of the Gunners midfield trio and give Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe just the kind of supply line they have wanted this season.

 is a now very different player to the one who failed to make an impression at the Reds.

Filip Kostic

Club: Eintracht Frankfurt

Age: 27

Nationality: Serbian

Eintracht Frankfurt will want to skip their 2019/20 season after managing no better than a ninth-placed finish, but the Serbian had a campaign to recall.

Kostic notched 11 assists in 33 Bundesliga appearances and produced 19 big chances over the course of the season. Only Thomas Muller (30) and Serge Gnabry (22) created more in the German top flight.

The 27 year old mostly plays off the left side but is eligible of playing through the inner. He is also a strong presser of the ball, which would certainly appeal to Arteta, but is naturally creative.

In some, he is similar to Red Devils Bruno Fernandes in the way he makes things happen through mere energy and drive, and who wouldn’t want that talent in their team?

Christopher Nkunku

Club: RB Leipzig

Age: 22

Nationality: French

Timo Werner completed the 2019/20 Bundesliga season as RB Leipzig’s top scorer with 28 goals in 34 appearances, but without christopher he would have strived for service.

The 22 year old has flourished in Germany since making a €13m move from Paris Saint-Germain last summer, and would actually bring the sort of creativity Gunners have wanted this season.

The Frenchman scored five times and assisted 13 in 32 Bundesliga appearances, averaging 2.3 key passes per 90 minutes, according to the website

Nkunku is eligible of playing on the left, the right and through the middle. He has even, on occasion, played up front. His versatility and natural invention would make him better for Gunners a year on from a summer in which Unai Emery. who had made Nkunku a top mark for Arsenal, failed to prise him from Paris Saint-Germain.
