Mikel Arteta, the Arsenal manager, has a clear transfer priority, with James Maddison on the backburner.
Arsenal still has a lot of business to do before the summer transfer window closes.
According to sources, Arsenal is prioritizing the recruitment of a goalkeeper over any other transaction. James Maddison, a Leicester offensive midfielder, is a target for Arsenal. But that deal will have to wait as the Gunners look for a replacement for Bernd Leno.
Arsenal and Adidas have unveiled their official 2021/22 home jersey, which is based on the club’s motto of “Arsenal for everyone.”
At the moment, Leno is unquestionably Arsenal’s first-choice goalkeeper.
Despite being on the verge of a move to Turkey earlier this summer, Runar Alex Runarsson is still with the club.
Last season, Runarsson struggled in his debut season at the Emirates, and the Gunners have been looking for a replacement.
Mat Ryan joined Real Sociedad on a free transfer with the hopes of gaining more regular game time after spending the second half of last season on loan at Arsenal.

Throughout the summer transfer season, Arsenal has been looking for an offensive midfielder.
Following his loan stay last season, Martin Odegaard and England international James Maddison remain targets.

Despite the acute need for a player like Maddison, Arsenal do not have a senior player who could step in for Leno if he gets injured.
