Latest Arsenal transfer news and team news
Wilfried Zaha has made a decision to leave Crystal Palace during the summer window.
Reports state that the player is eager to leave.
Arsenal have been in for him before and we’ll see if the Gunners do so again.
Dani Ceballos has opted against a move to Arsenal in favour of joining Real Betis.
Talks were believed to have taken place between Arsenal and Madrid over a fresh loan deal which would see Ceballos return to London for next season.
Real Betis are also keen on welcoming the 24-year-old back and were looking to rival Arsenal for his signature.
According to Mundo Deportivo, the midfielder has told Real Madrid that he would prefer a move to Betis.
Bellerin price tag
Arsenal have informed Juventus that they will only part with Hector Bellerin for no less than €30m, according to Corriere dello Sport via the Mirror.
The report adds that Bellerin is believed to be Andrea Pirlo’s first choice to strengthen his side’s right side of defence.
The defender has been with the Gunners since 2011 and still has another three years remaining on his current contract.
Mikel Arteta has held talks with Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara over a move to the Emirates Stadium, according to reports in France, via talkSPORT .
Thiago has been heavily linked with a switch to Liverpool this summer, but if these reports are to be believed, then Arsenal are also interested in the 29-year-old.
According to French journalist Patrick Moreau, Arteta has held talks with the former Barcelona man on the phone.
The Bayern Munich playmaker starred in the German side’s Champions League final victory over Paris Saint-Germain last weekend.
Mikel Arteta seemed pretty positive over the prospect of Dani Ceballos returning to Arsenal when asked about it yesterday.
Yet Mundo Deportivo claim that Ceballos has told Real Madrid he wishes to join Real Betis this summer.
The report says that the Spaniard knows he will get game time at Betis and feels he has no future at the Bernabeu.
Yet Real Madrid are said to have asked their La Liga rivals to pay in full in order to sign Ceballos permanently – something they currently cannot afford to do.
It means that Betis may have to sell in order to buy Ceballos – giving Arsenal some hope that they may be able to reach a deal for the player first.
