Brighton has reminded Arsenal of a summer transfer strategy Mikel Arteta might employ to gain an advantage over championship rivals.

Even though it is just February, Brighton has already completed their first summer acquisition, and Arsenal is still reeling from a January transfer window that saw no signings. Ibrahim Osman, a winger for FC Nordsjaelland, will cost The Seagulls €19.5 million (£16.6 million), according to David Ornstein.

According to certain sources, West Ham and the Gunners were both interested. But it looks like the South Coast recruitment experts prevailed over rivals in the fight to get the Ghanaian’s signature.

Although it appears that Arsenal’s purported interest was insufficient to prompt them to move further with a possible transaction, the action will undoubtedly serve as a signal that Premier League teams are acting quickly in front of the summer.

Although agreements can be reached between clubs and players outside of windows, players cannot be formally signed until the window opens.

with instance, Liverpool signed a contract with Cody Gakpo last season in December, before the winter transfer market opened. Arsenal is consequently very motivated to attempt to outperform any opposition to some of their primary aims.

This, of course, is not without risk. Agreeing to a deal too soon runs the risk of increasing the player’s chance of injury for the remainder of the season.
