UPDATE: According to a report, Arsenal is contemplating a shocking double swoop for ANOTHER Manchester City pair.

Could Arsenal be set to do something similar again after acquiring Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko from their Premier League rivals last summer?

Considering how well-received their acquisitions of Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City were the previous year, Arsenal is once more pursuing two players from that team this transfer window.

Prior to taking the helm at the Emirates Stadium, Mikel Arteta served under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City from 2016 to 2019. Now that he is in charge at Arsenal, the Spaniard aims to strengthen his team even more in time for the 2023–24 season.

This summer, the Gunners have already finalized the signing of Kai Havertz, and they will soon make the announcements of Declan Rice and Jurrien Timber. However, Arteta isn’t content to sit back and enjoy his success; he plans to visit Manchester City again and demand the addition of two more players.

Kyle Walker and Julian Alvarez would cost Arsenal a total of €76 million, according to the Catalan publication El Nacional.

Kyle Walker

Walker appears to be a viable choice given that the 33-year-old has only one year left on his current contract and that numerous rumours have consistently connected him with a move to Bayern Munich. He did, however, spend eight years at Tottenham Hotspur, which would make any deal from his end more difficult.

Walker is valued at €13 million on Transfermarkt, according to the publication, but would cost €16 million.

Walker allegedly has options outside of the Etihad after failing to start the Champions League final, despite having clawed his way back into the first team at Manchester City in the lead-up to their historic treble.

Julian Alvarez

Erling Haaland starting ahead of him has limited Alvarez’s playing time for City, but according to El Nacional, the team is open to taking bids for him. Arsenal want to negotiate a deal closer to €60m, the report claims, despite the player being valued at €80m by Guardiola’s team.

Despite spending a big majority of his first season in England on the bench, Alvarez, who started as Argentina’s No. 9 in their World Cup victory, managed 16 goals in 48 games across all competitions.
