Arsenal transfer news

In this article, we’ll cover all today’s Arsenal transfer news.

Saliba’s ‘buy option’ confusion

William Saliba looks certain to be on his way out of the door from Arsenal with reports that he has picked to move to Marseille on loan next year.

However there was some confusion over a report by French outlet L’Equipe whose report read that am ‘option to buy’ was included in the deal

The report has since been adjusted with the ‘€10 million’ option removed from the report.

Matteo Guendouzi latest

The same report detailed Matteo Guendouzi’s loan move to Marseille and this is where the confusion appears to have stemmed from.

The €10 million buy option is in fact an obligatory purchase option in Guendouzi’s move to Marseille.

Guendouzi spent last season on loan with Hertha Berlin but they chose not to make the deal permanent.

Lucas Torreira departure closer

Lucas Torreira’s Uruguay were beaten on penalties by Colombia in the Copa America quarter-final.

This result eliminated them from the tournament and now Torreira will return to Arsenal.

It is expected that he will leave the club this summer with the likes of Lazio interested. With him now out of the tournament a possible deal is likely to happen sooner rather than later.

Sambi Lokonga joins Anderlecht training camp

One player who Arsenal fans have been expecting to be announced soon is Sambi Lokonga.

The Belgian midfielder has been linked with a move to Arsenal for a long period of time now and the deal is dragging on somewhat.

Now Lokonga has been named in a 5-day training camp between the 5th and 10th of July with his current club. Should any deal take place with Arsenal he will simply leave the camp to sort the completion of the transfer.

Mat Ryan unlikely to return

Mat Ryan joined Arsenal on loan from Brighton last January and played a number of games as backup to Bernd Leno.

Despite being in the market for a keeper once again it does not appear that the Australian will return to the Emirates.

He has been linked today with a move to Spain and Real Sociedad. Ryan previously played in La Liga with Valencia.

Sam Johnstone targeted

Arsenal are now moving their attention to West Brom keeper Sam Johnstone according to the Daily Star.

The Gunners were looking at Aaron Ramsdale but Johnston is reportedly available for a cheaper fee.

Whilst Ramsdale would cost in excess of £25 million, the West Brom man is said to be gettable for £20 million.

Arsenal want a homegrown keeper for their squad.
