Arsenal have been busy during the summer transfer window adding five players to their ranks, defenders Ben White and Nuno Tavares Goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, midfielders Albert Sambi Lokonga and Martin Odegaard.
However, Arteta has been under pressure to keep his job and plans to add at least one more player.
The Gunners are now focused on outgoings to help ease their wage bill and make move before the end of the transfer window.
Willian set to leave
Arsenal are interested to remove £100k weekly wages from their outgoings and ready to allow Brazilian forwards to leave the club on a free transfer.
Such an agreement may also require the Gunners having to pay a portion of the player’s wages after he departs from the club, however, would still be making a significant saving overall.
While it is reported that there is a keenness from both teams to conclude a deal, the player’s preference is keen on remaining in Europe.
Arsenal continue the chase for Trippier
The report suggests that Atletico Madrid would only be interested in strikers Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in a player-plus-cash deal, however, the Norht London giants have no replacements for them lined up.
The Gunners are intent on adding a right-back to their team after unconvincing performances from Calum Chambers and Cedric Coares at the start of the 2021/22 season.
Trippier – who has also played for the Gunners direct Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur and could easily settle in Mikel Arteta’s squad.
Torreira to Fiorentina
Another player who looks set to depart from Arsenal has been Uruguayan Lucas Torreira who is widely expected to make a move to Fiorentina.
The Uruguayan playmaker has joined the North London giants three years ago from Sampdoria, however, despite impressing under Unai Emery, he struggled to remain at Mikel Arteta’s time in the dugout.
It had been also reported that Eintracht Frankfurt are also keeping tabs on Torreira’s situation, however, the player himself is keen on making a return to Serie A, having previously played for Sampdoria.
