rsenal could breach the £200m barrier with one last big splash in the summer transfer market.
Mikel Arteta has promised to keep spending and Yeremy Pino has become the latest target to emerge for the Gunners.
A central midfielder also continues to be on Arsenal’s agenda with Youri Tielemans, Seko Fofana and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic eyeing up.
On the flanks, Wolves winger Pedro Neto is a long-term target who is being talked about again as an option this summer.
Here’s your latest Arsenal update transfer news and rumors…
Villarreal fear an offer from Arsenal or Liverpool will be hard to turn down for Spain international Pino.
The teenager has caught the eye at El Madrigal and has a £67.5million release clause built into his contract.
However, AS report that Villarreal need to sell players before they can make any serious moves in the market – potentially paving the way for what should still be a big supply.
Wolves winger Pedro Neto has been under investigation by Arsenal in recent weeks.
That’s according to transfer journalist Dean Jones, who claims the Gunners could advance their interest in the coming days.
It was reported last summer that Wolves wanted £50m for the Portuguese star.
After it emerged over the weekend that £40million Lens captain Fofana was Arsenal’s ideal alternative to Youri Tielemans, the French club’s manager has pronounced in an attempt to deny the rumours.
Franck Haise told L’Equipe: “I’m very frank when I say that. Since June 24, and the resumption of training, Seko has been there and is training very well. He’s still the same competitor, he wants to win every game, like us. We are all aware that there could be departures. But today, he’s my captain and I don’t ask myself any other questions.
Fofana, also wanted by AC Milan, said earlier in the summer: “Anything is possible. I want to have fun and take whatever I can take. We are in a market period where there is a lot of reflection. You can tell yourself that you’re going to stay or that you’re going to leave, you don’t really know.
