All the latest Arsenal transfer news and rumours as Mikel Arteta looks to add new bodies on deadline day.

Arsenal are still enjoying their perfect start to the season after a win over Aston Villa on Wednesday night.

The Gunners came out on top thanks to goals from Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli, with the second goal coming just moments after a Villa equaliser.

Arsenal have now won all of their five Premier League outings, but they have a rampant Manchester City on their tails.

Next up, the Gunners face Manchester United, but in the meantime, they will be looking to perfect their squad on transfer deadline day.

And here we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding the Gunners.

Luiz talks

Arsenal are said to be considering a late deal for Aston Villa star Douglas Luiz, who scored against the Gunners on Wednesday.

According to talkSPORT, the Brazilian midfielder is now a priority for the Gunners as they look to add to the middle of the park on deadline day.

Luiz could well be on the move, yet to agree a new deal with Villa and now in the final year of his contract.

There is said to be plenty of interest, and Arsenal are one of the clubs expected to open talks on deadline day.

Tielemans latest

Arsenal are likely to pursue other options over Youri Tielemans due to Leicester City’s asking price.

“We know that they have had Tielemans on the list for a long time but they never wanted to pay £35 or £40 million for a player who’s out of contract in a few months,” Romano told GiveMe Sport.

“Let’s see if they will go for some cheaper options on the market.”

Maitland-Niles latest

Arsenal star Ainsley Maitland-Niles looks to be on his way out.

The midfielder is available for loan and is not expected to play a part under Arteta this season.

A number of Premier League clubs are said to have enquired, but according to Hampshire Live, Southampton are closing in on a deal.
