What is the latest transfer news involving Arsenal?

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta recently hinted that the Gunners could make further additions this summer.

Speaking to Sky Sports (via The Sun) after his side’s 2-0 win against Crystal Palace on Friday, the Spaniard said: “We are going to try [to bring in more players]. If we can do them, great. But now it’s work with the players we have, the focus should be with the players we have.”

As well as Jesus and Zinchenko, the Premier League outfit have also signed Fabio Vieira, Matt Turner and Marquinhos.

It is clear, though, that Arteta still wants to do more business before the transfer window closes in September.

What has Romano said about Arsenal’s transfer plans for the remainder of the window?

Before Arsenal make any more signings, Romano is expecting exits at the Emirates.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, the Italian journalist said: “This club signed many players in June and July, now it’s time to sell players. So they let [Folarin] Balogun leave on loan to join Reims, [Bernd] Leno joined Fulham, there will be time for [Lucas] Torreira, Pablo Mari, [Ainsley] Maitland-Niles.

“They still have many things to resolve before jumping into new signings.”

Who else could Arsenal sign?

It is evident that Arteta wants to bring a new winger to north London this summer. The Gunners, of course, made a bid for Raphinha before he left Leeds United for Barcelona.

In terms of alternatives to the Brazilian, one name Arsenal are currently being linked with is Villarreal’s rising star Yeremy Pino.

According to reports from Spain, they are battling it out with Liverpool and Chelsea for the 19-year-old’s signature.

What year did Arsenal move into the Emirates Stadium?

Bayern Munich’s Leroy Sane is another wide man who has been linked with a move to the Emirates, but Romano has told GMS that the German giants have no intention of selling the former Manchester City star.

Sane was a revelation when he was in the Premier League, scoring 25 goals and providing 32 assists in 90 appearances, according to Transfermarkt.

He would be a great signing for the Gunners, but it appears that Arteta will have to look elsewhere if he does still want to add a new winger to his squad.
