While Arsenal’s battle for the top four is put on hold for a couple of weeks due to the international break, there’s been no slowing down when it comes to the usual transfer speculation that surrounds the Gunners.

With striking reinforcements seemingly top of the agenda at the Emirates, and the possibility of a high-profile French arrival being mooted from some quarters, there’s plenty of gossip doing the rounds.

Here’s a roundup of all of the latest Arsenal transfer news....

Everton ready to sell Calvert-Lewin

According to The Sun, Everton will “cash in” on Dominic Calvert-Lewin at the end of the season - a decision that has put both Arsenal and West Ham on “red alert”.

The England international has been hampered by injury this term, and has been limited to just 10 appearances in the Premier League.

The Gunners are said to be in the market for striking reinforcements this summer, and have identified Calvert-Lewin as one potential option.

Mikel Arteta’s men have been linked with the 25-year-old previously, but have been put off in the past by the Toffees’ £60 million valuation of the player.

With new manager Frank Lampard at the helm, however, Calvert-Lewin could be allowed to leave for considerably less in the summer.

Arsenal eye Rashford

Arsenal could look to make an ambitious move for United forward Marcus Rashford, according to a report from the Mirror.

The Gunners are in the market for a new striker after losing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and said to be willing to offer the England international an “escape” from his career at Old Trafford.

The England international has stagnated somewhat in recent times, and has been limited to just 10 starts in the Premier League this season.

Rashford’s contract with United is due to expire next summer.

Gunners meet with Dembele

Arsenal have reportedly met with Ousmane Dembele’s entourage over a potential deal which could see him quit Barcelona for north London this summer.

The French winger is widely expected to leave the Catalan giants at the end of the season after failing to agree to a contract extension in Spain.

And while a number of clubs have been touted as potential destinations in recent times, El Chiringuito claim that the Gunners have already held talks with Ousmane’s agent as they look to steal a march on their rivals.
