The latest Arsenal news and rumours on Sunday.

Arsenal sealed off their run of pre-season friendlies with an emphatic win over Sevilla yesterday.

The Gunners beat the La Liga side 6-0 with goals from Bukayo Saka (x2), Gabriel Jesus (x3) and Eddie Nketiah.

Their first game of the 2022/23 campaign is away to Crystal Palace on Friday.

Here is a look at all the latest news and rumours coming out of the club today....

New interest in defender

Monza are reportedly keen on Arsenal defender Pablo Mari.

The Italian side are preparing for life in Seria A after winning promotion from Serie B last term.

According to TuttoMercatoWeb, they are interested in luring the 28-year-old away from the Emirates Stadium in this transfer window.

Everton want target

Everton have apparently joined the race to sign Gunners’ target Lucas Paqueta.

The 24-year-old, who is a Brazil international with 33 caps under his belt to date, currently plays for Lyon in France.

CalcioMercato claim Frank Lampard’s Toffees want to land him this summer to bolster their squad ahead of the new season.

Former Arsenal ace on the move?

Former Arsenal ace Alexis Sanchez could be on the move again.

He is on the books of Inter Milan still but is wanted elsewhere.

La Provence report that Marseille want to snap him up before the end of the transfer window.

Sanchez was a hit during his time in North London and went on to score 80 goals in 166 games in all competitions before Manchester United swooped to sign him back in January 2018.
