Hutchinson completed a permanent move worth an initial £20m – with a further £2.5m potentially if performance-related add-ons are met.

Following the Tractor Boys’ promotion back to the Premier League, they made the youngster their top target, though there was initial concern that they would not be able to afford him. H

Hutchinson had a brilliant campaign in the Championship last season for Ipswich, contributing 10 goals and six assists.

The Jamaica international – whose FootballTransfers’ Estimated Transfer Value algorithm (ETV) ranks at €6.7m – played twice for Chelsea after joining from Arsenal.

Arsenal’s transfer business

Arsenal have had a relatively quiet window so far. The side missed out on a Premier League title once again last term, with Manchester City clinching the silverware.

The club are on the market for a striker and have been linked to several high-profile names, such as Alexander Isak, Victor Osimhen, and Viktor Gyokeres. But it’s thought that a new midfielder also remains a top priority – with Thomas Partey’s future looking uncertain at the Emirates Stadium.

The club are on the lookout for someone to play alongside Declan Rice and channel the ball through to Martin Odegaard, in Mikel Arteta’s 433 system.

We have reported before that Arsenal do have substantial funds for the summer window – but so far, no deals have progressed.

Last week the club announced the news that former Gunners scholar Karl Hein had agreed a fresh deal. The Estonian spent the second half of the 2021/22 season on loan at Championship side Reading.
