Arsenal can complete deal for Caicedo from next month amid Premier League loophole

The summer transfer window will soon commence, giving Arsenal the opportunity to strengthen their team in areas where it is required. Recent events, such as being eliminated from domestic cup competitions and the Europa League, losing crucial matches in the Premier League title race, and dealing with injuries to William Saliba and Takehiro Tomiyasu, have revealed the shortcomings of the Gunners’ main squad.

Hence, it comes as no surprise that Arsenal is expected to be active in the transfer market this summer. Several players have been rumored to be potential targets, including Mason Mount from Chelsea, Marc Guehi from Crystal Palace, and the versatile Joao Cancelo, who is a full-back for Manchester City.

Arsenal’s focus on bolstering their central midfield is apparent, and it has been reported that they consider West Ham United captain Declan Rice as a top priority signing. Additionally, there are renewed rumors linking them to Moises Caicedo from Brighton & Hove Albion, after a failed attempt to sign him in January.


It is interesting to note that Arsenal has an incentive to complete their transfers early this summer. The official opening date of the transfer window, according to FIFA’s Transfer Window Calendar, is Tuesday, June 13. During this period, only signings from teams in the Premier League, English Football League (EFL), and Scottish leagues can be registered.

Hence, if, for instance, Arsenal were to reach an agreement with West Ham for Rice, they would have the ability to immediately register him, even if it’s just six days after a potential Europa Conference League final. The same applies to potential deals involving Caicedo, Mount, Cancelo, and Guehi, as they all currently play in the top tier of English football.

On the other hand, in the case of Kieran Tierney being rumored to move to Newcastle United, that transfer can be officially finalized starting from June 13. However, Reiss Nelson and Ainsley Maitland-Niles, both experienced players likely to leave Arsenal this summer, cannot be registered by a new club until their Arsenal contracts expire on June 30.

Regarding any potential transfers, whether it involves bringing players to Arsenal or sending them away, if they involve teams from France, Italy, Germany, or Spain, they can be preliminarily agreed upon after June 13. However, these moves cannot be officially completed until Saturday, July 1 when the international transfer window opens.

It is worth noting that Arsenal, particularly since Mikel Arteta took over as manager/head coach, seldom sign players from other Premier League clubs in June. Last summer, for instance, Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko joined from Manchester City only after the international transfer window had opened.
