The 2022/23 Premier League season fixtures were released on Thursday and here is how Arsenal could line up vs Crystal Palace if the latest transfer news and speculation is true
Arsenal head into the summer transfer window looking to make amends for an end-of-season stumble that ultimately cost them a Champions League spot last season.
The Gunners have made no secret of their desire to recruit in the coming months, and are being linked with a number of impressively high-profile names as the market begins to pick up pace.
Mikel Arteta’s men also learned earlier this week that they will be facing Crystal Palace in their first Premier League match of the 2022/23 campaign, but given the multitude of rumours doing the rounds, how exactly will they line up by the time that fixture rolls around in August?
We’ve taken a look at the Gunners’ £400 million-rated potential starting XI below...
1. GK: Aaron Ramsdale
The stopper impressed during his first season at the Emirates, and will be number one again next term.
2. RB: Aaron Hickey
The promising Scot has been heavily linked with the Gunners, and has is capable of playing on either side of defence.
3. CB: William Saliba
The 21-year-old spent last season at Marseille, but could be incorporated into Arteta’s plans next season.
4. CB: Gabriel
Another player who caught the eye last term, Gabriel looks set for a big future.
