Arsenal’s summer business might not be over just yet, despite the significant investment to bring new faces to the Emirates Stadium.
Gabriel Magalhaes has joined from Lille in a big-money deal, while others have joined for substantially less money, but Mikel Arteta still has some areas of his squad in need of improvement.
We have the latest on a few potential ins and outs for the Gunners, including a new name on the targets list and updates on a couple of players who could find themselves on the way out before Arsenal ’s first game of the 2020/21 season kicks off.
Arsenal weigh Anderson loan
Arsenal could be about to further add to their Brazilian contingent with a loan swoop for West Ham United’s Felipe Anderson.
The former Lazio man, who was the Hammers’ record signing when he joined in 2018, was in and out of the team under David Moyes and started just one of his team’s last 10 league games last season.
This has alerted Arsenal to the potential availability of the high-earning winger, with a £5m fee for a season-long loan deal mooted.
Arsenal have already added Brazil international Willian and Selecao under-20 man Gabriel Magalhaes to their ranks this summer, with the two joining compatriots David Luiz and Gabriel Martinelli in Mikel Arteta’s squad.
El Neny may move to Italy
Mohamed Elneny returned to the Arsenal first team for the Community Shield, but the Egyptian international could be the subject of a new transfer tug-of-war.
Elneny, who is under contract until 2022, spent last season on loan at Besiktas and had been linked with a return to the Turkish club.
However, according to TuttoMercatoWeb (via football.london), Sampdoria are also interested in taking the midfielder on a season-long loan.
The midfielder may very well choose to take on a new challenge and make the move to Italy
Aubameyang to Sign
According to David Orstein of the Athletic, Arsenal are very assured Auba will commit his future to the club with the player getting convinced the club is heading to the right direction under Mikel Arteta.
Atletico Madrid may take down price
Atletico Madrid have stood firm on their demands that Arsenal trigger the £44.5million release clause of Thomas Partey if the want the player, with that price proving too expensive for the Gunners and blocking any move.
According to The Telegraph, Arsenal may about to recieve a boost as Atletico consider taking down the price with the player having made his desire to leave clear.
