Arsenal have finally made their first signing of the summer transfer window as Gabriel Martinelli joins from Brazilian side Ituano Futebol Clube. What else does Unai Emery have up his sleeve? Today’s Gunners transfer roundup includes La Liga interest in a star striker, the pursuit of a Barcelona star and the potential departure of a club veteran.
According to the Daily Mirror, Atletico Madrid are interested in signing Alexandre Lacazette from Arsenal to replace Barcelona-bound Antoine Griezmann. Champions League football may be of interest to the Frenchman, who scored 13 goals in 35 Premier League games last season.
Spanish outlet Sport is reporting that Arsenal are interested in taking Barcelona’s Malcom on loan for next season. However, the Catalan club are more interested in letting the 22-year-old Brazilian go on a permanent deal rather than on a temporary basis.
Bordeaux have made Arsenal centre-back Laurent Koscielny their priority this summer according to L’Equipe. The report also states that the 33-year-old has told Les Girondins that he is interested in making a move to the Ligue 1 outfit.
