Arsenal's summer transfer window is gradually becoming a success. Marquinhos and Fabio Viera have already been signed, and a deal for Gabriel Jesus is nearing completion. Arteta is now left with the recruitment of a reliable central midfielder as one of the prioritised positions to be improved.
For weeks, Youri Tielemans was touted as Arsenal's ideal midfield target, but according to a story in the Express today, Arsenal has moved on from Tielemans. Negotiations with Tielemans appear to have broken down, and Arsenal have moved their focus to Aston Villa midfield sensation Carney Chukwuemeka.
The Villa teenager made 14 appearances for Steven Gerrard's team last season and is currently excelling with two goals and two assists in the Under-19 European Championship.
Aston Villa have been attempting to sign the midfielder to a new long-term contract but have been unable to do so, sparking speculation over his departure.
Arsenal have been widely linked with the 18-year-old. If Arteta can sign Carney Chukwuemeka, it may be a transfer masterstroke for the teenager who has been dubbed the "next Jude Bellingham." (Source: Express)
