The Gunners have shown some promise in FA Cup and Community Shield wins over Chelsea and Liverpool this summer but more recruitment needs to be done.
Willian, Gabriel and Dani Ceballos’ new loan deal have added quality to the Arsenal squad, but Mikel Arteta is still on the search for new players.
With that in mind, here are the latest transfer rumours round-up on Arsenal.
Aouar price tag
Lyon have set their price for Houssem Aouar amid transfer links with Arsenal.
The Gunners are chasing the signature of the 22-year-old midfielder and could offer Matteo Guendouzi as part of any transfer.
Arsenal have been told that Aouar will cost £53 million, per The Express.
Nketiah loan interest
Newcastle are reportedly considering loan moves for Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah.
Steve Bruce has lost Dwight Gayle to a knee injury until at least December and only Andy Carroll has featured in recent warm-up matches for Newcastle.
It was revealed on Sunday that the Magpies have agreed a £20m fee for Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson – but Bruce is still keen to strengthen and is keeping tabs on Nketiah and Liverpool’s Rhian Brewster and their development at their respective clubs, according to The Telegraph.

Demiral to Arsenal claim
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has revealed Arsenal ‘love’ Juventus centre-back Merih Demiral, per The Express.

Speaking to YouTuber Lee Gunner, Romano said: “The real centre-back that Arsenal loves here in Italy is the other Juventus centre-back Merih Demiral, if I had €50m, I would definitely go to buy him.
