Tielemans is being linked with the Gunners

Arsenal will already be fully concentrating on putting this summer’s transfer plans into action.

The Gunners enjoyed an impressive campaign by recent standards, improving significantly to finish fourth.

And while they will have been very disappointed to miss out on fourth place and the Champions League at the last, they will be pleased to return to Europe next season.

The Europa League awaits Arsenal, but they will need to improve their squad this summer, both in terms of quality and depth.

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

Arsenal’s bid to sign Leicester City star Youri Tielemans could get complicated.

The Gunners are understood to be keen to improve their midfield this summer, and Tielemans could be available for a cut price, out of contract in 2023.

According to football.london, Tottenham are also interested in the Belgian, and they could hold the upper-hand due to securing Champions League football.

Raphinha interest

Arsenal’s interest in Leeds United winger Raphinha has been dubbed as ‘genuine’.

The Whites winger has a number of clubs pursuing his signature this summer after an impressive campaign, netting 11 goals.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Arsenal’s interest in landing Raphinha is ‘genuine’, but they have not reached the stage of talks, prioritising Tielemans and Gabrel Jesus.

Leeds are said to want £55million for Raphinha.

Milinkovic-Savic links

The Gunners are said to be chasing a move for rumoured Manchester United target Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

The Lazio star has been heavily linked with United this summer, but according to Correre dello Sport, it is Arsenal who are making a move.

It’s claimed Arsenal are willing to offer £51.2million to complete a deal, but Lazio want as much as £55million.

It will be interesting to see if the Gunners do go after this one, especially given the price of it and the fact they are understood to be chasing Tielemans and Jesus.
