Arsenal transfer news

In this article, we’ll cover all of today’s Arsenal transfer news.

Ben White back-up plan

Arsenal are working to bring Ben White to the Emirates this summer having already had a bid rejected for the Brighton midfielder.

Now they have changed their offer so that more money would be provided up front in the hope this entices Brighton to change their minds.

However, should they fail to bring in White, Edmond Tapsoba is seen as the back-up choice to White with the Burkina Faso international being a long-term target.

Bayer Leverkusen would however want a sizeable fee who see the 22-year-old as a long-term part of the club’s future.

Saliba buy option rubbished

William Saliba is set to leave the club for yet another loan away from the club.

Marseille are said to be the team vying heavily for his signature and the former Saint-Etienne youngster has already ‘picked’ them as his most favourable option.

However there were suggestions the French side had inserted a buyout clause for the player but reporter Chris Wheatley has now rubbished these claims.

Matteo Guendouzi’s parting words

Matteo Guendouzi could be with Saliba next season with the French midfielder set to sign for Marseille too on loan but with an obligation to buy in the deal.

Arsenal are expected to make around £10 million for the player and he has now spoke out about the ‘failure‘ Arsenal had last season in one of his final interviews as an Arsenal player:

“To see that the club failed to qualify for European competition for the first time in 25 years hurts deeply. Arsenal must return to where it belongs. I don’t know the reasons for the failure because I wasn’t there last season.”

“But I’m concerned about the club’s situation because Arsenal deserve great things. I am a Gunner from the bottom of my heart and will remain so, no matter what.”

Smith-Rowe bid expected for third time

Aston Villa have already had two bids rejected by Arsenal for Emile Smith-Rowe. The Gunners have categorically said that the player is not for sale.

However, this is doing nothing to deter the Villans for coming back again with another offer.

A bid in the region of £32.5 million is said to be lodged in the hope it can persuade Arsenal to part with him.

Villa see Smith-Rowe as possible replacement for Jack Grealish should he leave this summer but also would like him to play with the England international.

Arsenal have been said to be unwilling to accept an offer 3 times Villa’s original bid.
