Arsenal are looking to bolster their midfield options so as to challenge for next season's home soil competitions as they did not qualify for any European competition. They want to ensure at least they qualify for Europa League and manage a silverware in FA Cup or the Carabao Cup as they are not healthy squad-wise to compete for English Premier League title.
Due to that, they have started a rebuild which has seen Arteta present a list of players he want to challenge. Number one in the least is Lille star who has shined in Euro 2020 despite their exit after defeat by Belgium. Renato controlled the midfield when they played yesternight in the Last 16 of Euro 2020.
Arsenal are keeping an eye on the Lille star as they weigh a potential summer transfer. They have asked Lille to keep them updated on any potential developments of the player's future. Arsenal board is ready to tune in £250 million to back boss Arteta in the rebuild. They are said to be in advanced talks as they plan a shock summer signing with medicals set to happen soon.
