Arsenal ‘enter talks’ over loan deal as Oleksandr Zinchenko medical plan emerges

All the latest Arsenal transfer news and rumours as Mikel Arteta and his men continue their preparations Stateside.

Arsenal kicked off their Stateside tour with a win on Sunday thanks to a 2-0 victory over Everton.

Gabriel Jesus was on target again, while Bukayo Saka was also on the scoresheet to see off the Toffees.

After their date in Baltimore, the Gunners will now head down to Florida to take on Orlando City and Chelsea.

In the meantime, Mikel Arteta continues to work on new signings, with Arsenal still in need of improving in key areas, while some players could also leave.

With that in mind, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding the Emirates Stadium.

Melo talks

Arsenal are said to be in talks with Juventus over the potential signing of Arthur Melo.

The Brazilian has been linked with the Gunners this summer, and according to TuttoJuve, the Gunners are in talks over a possible deal, which would initially be a loan deal.

Juventus are said to be open to losing the midfielder this summer.

It’s reported Arsenal agreed a loan deal for the midfielder back in January, but the deal fell through.

Zinchenko medical

According to the Express, everything has now been agreed, including a four-year deal.

It’s reported Arsenal are trying to get the midfielder’s medical done in America so that Zinchenko can instantly join the summer tour across the pond.

But either way, it seems Zinchenko will be an Arsenal player this week.

Jesus’ agent opens up

Arsenal did some fine work in getting the signing of Gabriel Jesus over the line.

According to the striker’s agent, Chelsea made a late move to sign the striker ahead of the Gunners completing the deal.

“Chelsea were one of the teams that tried to hijack the Arsenal move,” he said.

“They tried very hard in the final days to get him. By that point, we’d already chosen our new project.”
