Arsenal are set to move three players – and to sign three big names in their place, Liverpool close their next signing, while Wednesday’s transfer gossip claims Chelsea are ready to loan out a big Barcelona star.
WHITE, KEHRER, NEVES IN THE ARSENAL SITES
Arsenal remain confident in securing the signings of Ben White, Ruben Neves and Thilo Kehrer as they try to strengthen their squad.
Mikel Arteta is set to reshape his Gunners squad after a disappointing season that saw them finish eighth.
And that will likely mean a number of ins and outs as Arteta seeks to balance both numbers and finances.
According to Daily Express, the Gunners are set to step up their pursuit of Ben White after the conclusion of the European Championship.
The Gunners appear ready to pay Brighton £ 54million for the defender – a direct replacement for David Luiz.
There will be another addition at the back with the Gunners also inquire about PSG defender Thilo Kehrer.
The German can also cover in central defense and has a big admirer at Arteta. A loan deal seems the most likely outcome.
Meanwhile, the Express claims Jorge Mendes remains in contact with Arsenal technical director Edu over a move for Wolves star Ruben Neves.
His signing would cost the Gunners around £ 40million. It could be a signing too far for the Gunners after the deal for White.
However, the departures of some players could free up funds.
To this end, Hector Bellerin should now join Inter Milan replacing Achraf Hakimi.
He will be joined in Serie A by Granit Xhaka, who is expected to sign for Roma.
A third start will be Joe Willock, who looks set to join Newcastle on a season-long loan, according to the Times.
The Gunners hope to raise around £ 40million from those three outings – which should cover the costs of winning Neves de Molineux.
