Thursday’s Arsenal transfer roundup was made up of a club veteran making a shock refusal, a new bid for a Premier League star and an approach made for a Portuguese right-back. Today’s edition focuses on an update on a Real Madrid forward, a South coast side potentially willing to let a top Gunners target leave on a free, and the confirmed loan departure of a youngster.
Arsenal target Mariano Diaz wants to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu this summer and fight for his place according to AS. The Gunners had reportedly been offered the opportunity to sign the 25-year-old for £18m, but the former Lyon forward sees his future in Madrid.
According to The Daily Express, Bournemouth are prepared to see Ryan Fraser run down his contract and leave as a free agent next summer rather than sell him during this transfer window. Unai Emery’s side have been linked with the 25-year-old Scottish international.
Doncaster Rovers have confirmed the loan signing of Ben Sheaf. The 21-year-old will join the League One outfit for a sixth-month spell. The versatile youngster said of the move, “I’m really happy to take this step up, I feel like I’m past U23s football now and this is a great opportunity to get experience in the men’s game.”
