The 'gunners' closed the season without titles after wasting a good advantage in the Premier, but will return to the Champions the next season. Thus, Mikel Arteta prioritises the arrival of the German to reinforce a centre of the field that gave clear samples of wear in the final stretch of the 2022/23, with a Jorginho that did not surrender to the level expected. The offer of the Arsenal would be upper in the economic to the one of the Barça, by which the mediocentro will take still a few days more to define his future. For the moment, the City luce with advantage.
