Arsenal in transfer battle as outcast set to leave and Joe Willock drops hint

Mikel Arteta will be desperate to strengthen this summer following a difficult season for Arsenal.

The Gunners struggled in the Premier League though there were certainly glimpses of promise throughout the campaign.

And Arteta knows more evolution is needed, saying: "We have already had an incredible amount of changes at the club over the past year or so, more than ever.

"We are looking to improve and be much closer than where we are at the moment. In order to do that there are certain things that we have to improve."

And Daily Star Sport has gathered the latest transfer news from the Emirates…

Transfer battle ensues

Arsenal are reportedly one of several Premier League teams looking to sign Josip Brekalo this summer.

The Wolfsburg star has regularly impressed in the Bundesliga and scored seven times and provided three assists this season.

Corriere Dello Sport report that Arteta is interested, though he could face competition from Leeds United and Everton.

Gunners outcast set to leave

Matteo Guendouzi has spent the season on loan with German outfit Hertha Berlin and could now be set for a permanent exit from Arsenal.

Foot Mercato report that Marseille are in advanced talks to sign Guendouzi, who previously found himself exiled from the Gunners squad.

And he could now be out of the club for good.

Joe Willock hint

Joe Willock impressed at Newcastle United in the second half of the season, on loan from Arsenal.

And he has left the door open to a return, saying: “I’m going to sit down with my team and think about what’s best for me next season.

“Newcastle will always have a special place in my heart.

“Wherever I go, this club will always have a special place in my heart so I just want to say thank you to all the fans who have helped me so much and made me feel so welcome and opened their arms for me.

“I wish I could give each of them a hug, but I can’t. Hopefully, you’re satisfied with what I’ve done for the club so far.”
