Arsenal learn ‘asking price’ for La Liga star as defender ‘rejects’ transfer proposal

All the latest Arsenal transfer news and rumours as Mikel Arteta looks to continue strengthening his squad this summer.

It’s already been an exciting summer for Arsenal as they prepare for the new season.

Mikel Arteta’s men return to Europe this season, competing in the Europa League, and they will be looking to qualify for the Champions League with a top four finish.

Additions are required to secure that fate, and Arsenal have already begun adding key pieces, with the £45million signing of Gabriel Jesus already wrapped up.

The Gunners have also secured further additions, and they may not end there, with more incomings expected by time the end of the window comes around.

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

Asensio price

Arsenal now know how much they will have to pay if they want to sign Real Madrid star Marco Asensio this summer.

The Spaniard is out of contract next year and could be sold this summer, with no new deal on the table just yet.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Los Blancos are asking for between £21.6million and £25.8million for their forward this summer.

Martinez latest

Amid reports aplenty over recent weeks, Arsenal are said to be ‘very keen’ on signing Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez this summer.

CBS Sports say Arteta would like to sign the Argentine, who would go straight into his starting XI.

But the big issue is that Manchester United are said to be ‘very, very confident’ of pulling off a deal for the centre-back this summer.

Bellerin rejects offer

Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin is said to be receiving approaches aplenty this summer.

According to Estadio Deportivo, Bellerin’s latest offer has come from Villarreal, who are looking to add depth at right-back this summer.

But it’s stated that Bellerin only wants a return to Real Betis after an enjoyable spell on loan with the Seville club last season.
