Arsenal are still licking their wounds after last season's Premier League tragedy. Having lost their way and the title to Manchester City down the stretch has made them a laughing stock for fans of other teams and they must continue to carry that heavy burden.

Still, the team coached by Mikel Arteta is ready to start again, and now more prepared than ever for any eventuality. They do not want their players to run out of steam at the most crucial moments, and the way to do that is to be able to have a larger squad.

For the time being, Arteta's idea will be to renew all the club's important players. There will be many juicy offers for their big stars, and for the Gunners it would not be such a bad idea to accept the money to get other important signings in the summer market that will start in a few days.

Although Xavi Hernandez already had him on his list of demands for FC Barcelona, this Emirates Stadium player will stay with the club for a while longer, unless they want to spend a fortune for his termination clause, which is already valued at a considerable sum for a central defender.

The player Xavi can't have from Arsenal

The portal The Athletic has just announced that William Saliba has renewed with Arsenal until 2027. With this, they can shield the player from any offer from teams like FC Barcelona, who had intended to have him on a free for next year. However, with the renewal, they would have to pay a large sum of money to be able to take the French defender.
