Having lead the race for fourth spot for much of the campaign, Arsenal will be left playing Europa League football unless they win and Tottenham somehow fail to beat already relegated Norwich City.

It will feel like a long wait for Arsenal until Sunday’s final day, and in the meantime, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours.

Jesus problem

Arsenal could be set to miss out on Gabriel Jesus due to their Premier League misteps.

The Gunners could now miss out on Champions League football, and they may well miss out on Jesus as a result.

That’s according to The Sun, who say the lack of Champions League football could prove crucial in Arsenal’s pursuit to land Jesus.

Umtiti option

The Gunners are said to be considering a move for Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti.

Arsenal are said to have received interest from Juventus over Gabriel Magalhaes and may be lining up a possible replacement.

According to the Daily Star, Arsenal are lining up Umtiti, who is likely to leave Barcelona this summer having dug his heels in this time last year.

Saka talks

Arsenal are expected to begin contract talks with key man Bukayo Saka in the near future.

Saka is not out of contract until 2024, but according to the Daily Mail, Arsenal want to reward the winger with new terms.

It’s reported that the talks will begin at the end of the season, but nothing is guaranteed, especially given the likelihood Arsenal will miss out on Champions League football.

Saka is a top talent who is likely to attract interest from Champions League clubs.
