Arsenal have enjoyed a decent first season under Unai Emery, but new signings will be needed this summer in order to kick on once again.

The Gunners don't have a huge budget to work with, so Emery and co will need to be very clever in the transfer market, with players already being linked.

In fact, Arsenal may have a cunning plan in mind, as three international teammates are being linked with moves to the Emirates Stadium, which may help them all settle together if they make the move.

 

The trio play for Argentina; Gremio defender Walter Kannemann is a target according to the Daily Mail, whilst Marca claim Ajax left back Nicolas Tagliafico is also wanted by the Gunners.

Football.London note that Boca Juniors winger Cristian Pavon has been identified too, and signing all three would be hugely exciting for Gunners fans.

All three were named in the Argentina squad back in October, whilst Kannemann and Tagliafico are currently on international duty with Argentina right now, with Pavon unavailable.

Nicolas Tagliafico of Argentina looks on during the international friendly match between Argentina and Venezuela at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano on March 22, 2019 in Madrid, Spain.

Kannemann is a tough, experienced centre back with a surprising turn of pace, whilst left back Tagliafico has shown he can be an all-round left back, but is particularly impressive going forward thanks to his pace and quality on the ball.

Add in a pacy, direct and dangerous right winger in Pavon, and this Argentina-centric transfer plan could be absolutely perfect for Arsenal, bringing in real quality in areas of need whilst also easing their adjustment given that they already know each other.
