Arsenal are the biggest Premier League spenders this summer as they have made five signings thus far paying £129million.

The Gunners completed the signing of Real Madrid playmaker Martin Odegaard for £30m on Friday, while also adding Sheffield United’s stopper Aaron Ramsdale

The pair will join the likes of Nuno Tavares, Ben White and Albert Sambi Lokonga – who arrived at the Emirates Stadium this summer.

But it doesn’t look like he is finished with the transfer market just yet, with a number of other names are on the shortlist of under-fire manager, Mikel Arteta.

Barcelona defender rules out Arsenal move

Emerson Royal has believed that he is very happy with the Spanish giants, Barcelona amid interest from Arsenal.

The Athletic claimed that the 22-year-old defender could be involved in a swap deal which could see Hector Bellerin making a return to his boyhood club.

However, Emerson ruled out departure from Camp Nou during his interviews with the Spanish media outlet  Sport.

“When I was asked about my future, I told the truth,” he said.

“I respected Betis and I worked to help the club, but I couldn’t lie [about my ambitions]. I’ve always wanted to play for Barca, it was my main goal.

“Other teams showed an interest when my contract was up, but I didn’t want to hear about them.

“I was sure that I wanted to be here, and I’m very happy that I’ve achieved my goal.”

Battle for Lyon playmaker

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur will go head-to-head to sign Lyon playmaker Houssem Aouar.

The Gunners have been rumoured with securing the services of the French midfielder throughout the summer, however, they are facing stiff competition from their bitter rivals Tottenham.

The Lyon star, who was valued at £37.8m as reported by football.london, could be available for a cut-price deal.

The two Premier League sides are ‘really interested in signing Aouar despite the Gunners new arrival Martin Odegaard.

With less than two weeks to go before the August, 31 deadline Arsenal are likely to make additions this summer.

Arsenal planning to sell Willian

Arsenal are reportedly planning to get rid of Willian’s contract and planning sell him this summer.

Fabrizio Romano reported on Thursday that the Gunners were ‘working hard’ to offload Brazilian forward offering his services to several MLS teams.

The 33-year-old has endured a terrible spell at the Emirates Stadium after his arrival from Chelsea.

Willian may be tough to shift, however, with two years left on his current contract worth a reported £100,00-a-week that he signed in September 2020.
