Here’s all the news from around the Emirates Stadium over the past 24 hours.
Arteta and Edu already working on six deals
Arsenal have already begun making moves to improve Mikel Arteta’s squad for what is shaping up to be a big 2021/22 season.
As first reported by football.london,the Gunners’ squad planning for the summer transfer window is underway, with several players having uncertainties over their futures at the club.
If all the recent Arsenal transfer rumours are to be believed, manager Mikel Arteta and technical director Edu are already working on six deals ahead of the summer window.
In addition to the Lucas Torreira, Alexandre Lacazette, Hector Bellerin, and Tariq Lamptey rumours, the Gunners are also being linked with a new centre-forward and central defender.
And as per the Evening Standard, Arsenal are one of several clubs across Europe interested in signing RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate.
Aouar transfer decision
Could six soon become seven?
However, whilst the 22-year-old is on the radar for Arteta’s side, so are Serie A giants Juventus.
The report states that Andrea Pirlo wants to bolster his midfield in the summer and the Lyon star is his favoured option in what could be a blow for Arsenal’s chances.
Furthermore, Manchester City are also said to be following developments closely.
Lyon have reportedly set a price tag of €55m (£47m) for Aouar and are not willing to accept a penny less despite the current economic climate. Will Arsenal make a move?
