All the latest Arsenal transfer rumours, with updates on Ousmane Dembele and Marouane Fellaini.
Arsenal are keen on Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele, according to the Daily Star. The paper says Dembele, who endured an injury-ravaged first season the Nou Camp, is admired by head of recruitment Sven Mislintat, though a limited transfer budget – and priorities in defence and midfield – means a deal is unlikely.
The Gunners, however, are still weighing up a move for Marouane Fellaini, says the Daily Mirror. Fellaini’s contract at Manchester United expires at the end of the month but his next move – with AC Milan also linked – remains unclear.
Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic is another Arsenal target, the Sun reports. But the Gunners face competition from Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, the paper says, while the player is hoping for a move to Manchester United.
Arsenal and Tottenham are among several Premier League clubs keeping track of Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy, the Mirror says.
Tottenham will battle Arsenal for Marseille midfielder Morgan Sanson, according to the player’s agent. Speaking to Foot Mercato, Michael Manuello said: “Tottenham are looking at Morgan. Very much so. Arsenal are looking at him also, but I don’t know what Unai Emery will want.”
Arsenal are being linked with a move for Juventus defender Mehdi Benatia. Italy’s Calciomercato claims the 31-year-old wants out of Turin because of a reported breakdown in his relationship with manager Massimiliano Allegri.
