Arsenal are one of numerous clubs following the fortunes of Newcastle midfielder Bruno Guimaraes ahead of the summer transfer window, David Ornstein has confirmed.

In the wake of the Gunners’ Champions League exit at the hands of Bayern Munich in midweek, there has been talk of revolution in the squad, with Ornstein going so far as to admit this is a possibility.

The 26-year-old Brazil international central midfielder is a player that Arsenal have followed for some time.

Newcastle’s financial problems, though, could open the door to the former Lyon player departing St. James’ Park in the summer.

Arsenal are just one of several clubs following Bruno, Ornstein adds.

Summer overhaul possible at the Emirates

There could be more far-reaching consequences of Arsenal’s recent struggles, meanwhile.

Speaking to The Athletic FC podcast, Ornstein admitted Mikel Arteta’s team could look very different by the time the new season begins.

“There are certain parts of the team that need solving: the goalscoring area, parts of the central midfield, huge uncertainty over so many players in the squad,” he said.

We could see a very different Arsenal team going into next season and the years ahead.

“We could see a very different Arsenal team going into next season and the years ahead.

“There are steps they’ve taken to upgrade by bringing in the likes of Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City, seasoned winners who have helped bring Arsenal on, but there are questions if Arsenal have already moved past that stage and whether players like that need to be moved on.

“Mikel Arteta has pressure on him. And I don’t mean in terms of his job security, I just mean in terms of delivering results to keep Arsenal on this positive trajectory.

“But it’s not a school playground. It’s time to deliver. I think he can do that but some tough decisions need to be made.”

Arsenal face Wolves in the Premier League on Saturday evening having slipped two points behind Manchester City at the top of the table.
