The North London outfit, Arsenal is very busy with a number of transfer activities as a number of players are expected to leave the club while new faces would be seen at any moment from now.

Two Brazilian internationals, Willian and Gabriel Magalhaes have been confirmed to play in the Arsenal shirt for the coming season after the Gunners sealed an agreement with Chelsea and French Ligue 1 outfit, Lille respectively.

However, three strikers deal are expected to be finalized this summer as three U-23 players are expected to seal loan moves in the coming weeks.

Suitors are already lined up for highly rated Folarin Balogun and Sam Greenwood while Tyreece John-Jules is also attracting interest from a number of clubs in England and Europe.

It is understood that the Arsenal transition team, including Per Mertesacker, Technical director, Edu, and loan manager Ben Knapper will narrow down the suitors for the three strikers to three clubs and will hold talks with them to be able to seal the loan deals.

The North London club are highly interested in the progress and development of these players and will ensure they are taken by clubs who will enhance these things.

Meanwhile, Arsenal can boast of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the first-team at the moment before these three strikers will be ready.
