Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Thomas Partey alternative identified, Gunners line up Runar Alex Runarsson to replace Emiliano Martinez and Wolves return for Ainsley Maitland-Niles


Arsenal are flying on the pitch as Mikel Arteta’s side swept past Fulham in the Premier League season opener thanks to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang continuing his fine form. 

The Spaniard is already utilising the new options he has at his disposal, with depth t the Gunners’ squad now giving them a great chance to compete for a top four finish. Bukayo Saka and Nicolas Pepe were on the bench against Fulham. While Brazilians Willian and Gabriel have made an instant impact.

There is more to come, too, with Emi Martinez leaving, likely for Aston Villa, so a new back-up goalkeeper will be needed. While Arteta is keen to sell one player to boost his funds, with Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Hector Bellerin good options to fund a deal for Thomas Partey or Houssem Aouar.

LAMPARD REACTS TO ACCUSATIONS OF OVERSPENDING


I found it slightly amusing because I think when you talk about the owners of clubs, I don’t think it matters what line of business they come from. Liverpool have spent huge amounts and have bought very good players as well.

The reality is most clubs that win the league have recruited well and at quite a high level money wise. “You can go through the Liverpool players – Van Dijk, Alisson, Fabinho, Keita, Mane, Salah. Incredible players that came at a very high price. Liverpool have done it over a period of time. What we have done is come off the back of a ban.

I probably mentioned the transfer ban quite a lot last year. Maybe I felt that was some of the reason we were 30 points behind the top two teams.

ARTETA GIVES TRANSFER UPDATE


 I don’t know. I am not going to discuss here what the things that happened internally. But a lot of the things they have been writing, I can tell you they are not true.

TORREIRA EXIT IMMINENT

Arsenal will accept a £22m bid for Lucas Torreira, Tuttosport have reported. 

That will be a hit on the £26m paid to Sampdoria for the Uruguayan midfielder.

Torino would be willing to pay that fee with manager previously coaching the player at Samp.

That money could then be reinvested for a player such as Thomas Partey and Houssem Aouar.

SPURS MAKE STRIKER LIST

Spurs have a list of strikers to boost their attack. 

Mourinho could move for Metz striker Habib Diallo, Benfica’s Carlos Vinicius and Torino captain Andrea Belotti.

Arkadiusz Milik was a target, but the Polish striker’s price will likely be too much, RB Salzburg striker Patson Daka is also being considered, but Football London maintain Braga’s Paulinho is not on their radar.

While Trabzonspor president Ahmet Agaoglu revealed Spurs will compete with themselves and RB Leipzig to sign Alexander Sorloth from Crystal Palace.

RAYA STILL AN OPTION

Brentford’s £10million-rated goalkeeper David Raya is still an option for Arsenal.

Despite interest now in Icelandic goalkeeper Runar Alex Runarsson, the Mail claim the Bees star could replace Emi Martinez.

Raya famously made a mistake in the Championship play-off final to cost his side promotion against Fulham, but his tactical fit intrigues the Gunners.

WOLVES BACK IN FOR MAITLAND-NILES

Wolves are set to reignite their interest in Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

The Telegraph report the England international could be persuaded to move to Molineux due to the lure of a feature role in the first team.

That was always the issue under Mikel Arteta, though a storming display in the Community Shield may have changed the Spaniard’s mind on the player.

DIJON STAR EMERGES AS PARTEY ALTERNATIVE

Arsenal could look to sign another Dijon star in the form of Mounir Chouiar, according to L’Equipe.

The Gunners have failed to make Atletico Madrid budge on their stance over Partey, with the Spaniards demanding the full buy-out clause in order to sell – set at £45m.

Leeds and Wolves are also keen, with the player valued at £18.5m.

ARSENAL WANT DIJON STAR TO REPLACE MARTINEZ

Arsenal have lined up a move for Runar Alex Runarsson to replace Emi Martinez.

The Argentine goalkeeper will join Aston Villa and Mikel Arteta needs a back-up to Bernd Leno, with the Mail reporting that the Icelandic shot-stopper is now the prime candidate.

An unused substitute in England’s win over Iceland, the 25-year-old made 14 appearances for the Ligue 1 side last season but is not involved so far this term.
