3 deals Arsenal must complete before the transfer deadline

The transfer window has around five weeks left to run and for Arsenal, there is still work to do.

Mikel Arteta has added Albert Sambi Lokonga and Nuno Taveres, whilst a deal for Ben White is also thought to be close.

Ahead of the window closing, however, we looked at three players who the Gunners desperately need in their ranks by the time the window slams shut.

Andre Onana

UEFA Champions League Group D"Ajax Amsterdam v Atalanta Bergamo"

This would be a decent signing for just over £7 million and Arsenal have to act quickly.

Lyon are thought to be interested and with the Cameroonian preferring a move to France, Arteta has some convincing to do.

Onana has made over 200 appearances for Ajax and the 25-year-old would be a quality first-choice stopper for the Gunners.

Lautaro Martinez

The Argentine wouldn’t come cheap but he has the ability to become a game-changing signing for the Gunners.

He will set Arsenal back at around £77 million but with the club not in Europe, this would represent a quality piece of business.

Martinez scored 19 goals and claimed 11 assists last season as Inter won the Serie A title. It does seem unlikely that he will be sold, but that shouldn’t stop Arsenal from trying.

Tammy Abraham

Chelsea FC v Sheffield United - Premier League

The Gunners are still short in attack and the Chelsea striker could be a decent addition.

Of course, if Martinez is added then perhaps the Blues talisman won’t be, but if the finances are there, why not both?

The Inter man worked well in tandem with Romelu Lukaku and that could make him an ideal partner for Abraham.

Chelsea would be willing to let the £82,000-a-week player leave on loan and that would certainly appease Arsenal.
