Legendary former Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman and Lynsey Hooper co-host at Seaman Says Podcastrecently analyzed the Gunners’ transfer strategy.

Addressing the squad’s strengths and weaknesses, Seaman and Hooper identified some key areas where Arsenal need strengthening. One name that came up in their conversation was Nottingham Forest’s Murillo, who Hooper floated as a potential signing for the north London club.

Seaman enthusiastically backed the suggestion, expressing his intention to take it to Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta as soon as possible. “Take Murillo,” Seaman pointed out during the podcast. “If I could give you one tip this summer, it would be to get Murillo.”

Despite Nottingham Forest’s mixed performances this season, Murillo has stood out as a top prospect. The Brazilian defender possesses exceptional ball skills and the potential to flourish under the right guidance.


While acknowledging Murillo’s need for refinement in defensive discipline, Seaman highlighted Arteta’s coaching acumen as a potential transformational factor for the player.

However, amid talk of potential defensive reinforcements, questions are being raised about the need for another defender at the Emirates. With the likes of Jurrien Timber, Jakub Kiwior and Ben White capable of replacing William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes, some argue that Arsenal’s resources could be better directed elsewhere.

The debate over Murillo’s potential move to Arsenal shows the complexity of the transfer market and the myriad considerations involved in team building. While the Brazilian defender undeniably possesses the talent worthy of a big move, whether Arsenal will pursue his signature remains uncertain as the summer transfer window approaches.
