That is some major transfer news and there is still even more being reported with Arsenal having reportedly managed to fend off interest from Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City for one of their most promising young stars. Elsewhere, there has been a major update surrounding defender William Saliba and his contract. Here are the latest Arsenal transfer news headlines on Thursday, July 6:

Per a report from 90min, Arsenal have confirmed that teenage prodigy Ethan Nwaneri is staying with the club despite attempts from London rivals Chelsea to poach him. The player is also said to have been of interest to both Manchester United and Manchester City.
It is claimed that Nwaneri has ‘rejected the advances of Chelsea’ to remain at the Emirates Stadium. That is because the Gunners have named him among 13 first year scholars for the 2023/24 season.
