Hello and welcome along to Saturday’s football.london Arsenal news and transfer news live blog, keeping you right up to date with all the very latest news from the Emirates Stadium as it happens.
With the start of the 2021/22 Premier League campaign now just five weeks away, the Gunners are in a race against the clock to try and get as many new signings over the line as possible ahead of their opening day clash with newly-promoted Brentford.
Although the Gunners, who face Scottish outfit Hibernian in their pre-season opener on Tuesday evening, are yet to complete their first signing of the summer, they are working hard behind the scenes to get deals over the line.
It is understood that Benfica left-back Nuno Tavares is poised to be the club’s first new recruit of the summer, with Anderlecht ace Albert Sambi Lokonga expected to follow suit.
As well as looking to land those two, the Gunners have also rekindled their interest in Lyon sensation Houssem Aouar.
