Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Barcelona talks opened, Dembele hint, Emery told Pavon price
Barcelona talks opened
Arsenal have sensationally opened talks with Barcelona over Andre Gomes, reports have claimed.
The Portugal international is determined to leave the Nou Camp after two turbulent years in Catalonia.
And Paris United claim Arsenal are in talks over a deal for the midfielder.
“Arsenal has contacted André Gomes. FC Barcelona will not hold it,” they tweeted.
“In addition to Adrien Rabiot (PSG), the Blaugranas have targeted İlkay Gündoğan (Manchester City).”
Emery told Pavon price
Arsenal boss Unai Emery has been told how much he must pay to sign Cristian Pavon from Boca Juniors.
That’s according to the Daily Mirror, who claim the player has negotiated a new Boca deal.
That means it will cost Arsenal, and Barcelona, a huge £44million to lure him away from his homeland.
Whether the Gunners and Emery choose to pay it, however, remains to be seen.
Dembele drops hint
Arsenal have been tipped to sign Ousmane Dembele from Barcelona after his torrid first season at the Nou Camp last term.
And the France international has now hinted at a stunning move to the Emirates.
The player commented on a picture of Sokratis, saying ‘big papa’.
And fans seem to think his message to his old Borussia Dortmund team-mate may lead to an Arsenal move.
Good morning and welcome to Express Sport’s Arsenal transfer news LIVE blog.
