Arsenal could well target Red Bull Salzburg pair Patson Daka and Dominik Szoboszlai as well as Celtic striker Odsonne Edouard in the next transfer window, according to Football.London‘s Arsenal correspondent James Benge.
The transfer market has only been closed for a few days but following their successful capture of Thomas Partey, technical director Edu and his recruitment team are said to be ready to continue revamping the squad in the coming months.
Daka, Szoboszlai and Edouard are all players with massive potential and fans on Twitter are delighted that the club’s transfer strategy is finally becoming more focused:

Szoboszlai and Edouars would be perfect

Szo & Edouard would be great moves. Would really be beginning to assemble a title challenging team with those additions.

By the time Arteta completes his rebuilding of this Arsenal team with the quality of players he's after, Arsenal will surely be a formidable team in Europe again and challenging on all fronts

THESE TARGETS, OMGGGGG

Of course, finances will play a part in whether the Gunners can sign some of these targets in upcoming transfer windows. Celtic are reportedly holding out for at least £40m for Edouard, while the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United have also been circling Daka in recent months.
Out of the three, Szoboszlai is likely to be the easiest to get with the Hungarian international having been scouted by Arsenal for more than a year.
