Rumours are flying on Deadline Day and of course, David Ornstein will be a major source of transfer news and updates regarding Arsenal throughout the day.
The BBC Sport correspondent has just given an indication of how much business we can expect to see at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday and it’s certainly mixed news.
Perisic to Arsenal off – #Inter ended all player talks yesterday, #AFC attempts to structure loan + option (+ penalty fee if option not taken) of no interest. Nkunku efforts ongoing but now very unlikely #PSG. Suarez announcement soon. Smith Rowe #RBLeipzig loan, no option to buy

Ornstein has ruled out a deal for Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisic, described a swoop for Christopher Nkunku as unlikely, mentioned a potential loan deal for Emile Smith-Rowe and claimed there will be an announcement soon (presumably meaning from the club) on Denis Suarez.
According to BBC Sport, Arsenal have signed the Barcelona midfielder on loan until the end of the season and the Gunners have an option to sign him permanently – despite the Spaniard signing a new contract at the Nou Camp.
Gunners fans are obviously eager to hear about late window developments at their club, so here’s a look at how they reacted to David Ornstein’s latest transfer update…
I hate you today tbh ornstein

Delete this and try again. “Nkunku likely after breakthrough in talks” works better for me. Thanks.

We’d be lucky to finish 6th this season, might as well cancel it and start over again next season

Terrible window for the club. Midfield is the only area we actually have numbers. pic.twitter.com/bBYljY7O0w

Shame this. Really need to make sure we make CL otherwise we’ll suffer again with transfers.
