Arsenal transfer news: Three deals Arsenal could still do before the transfer window shuts | Football | Sport


Gabriel Martinelli, William Saliba, Dani Ceballos and club record signing Nicolas Pepe have all arrived at the Emirates.

That’s despite Emery having a reported strict transfer budget, with Pepe’s £72million fee believed to be in instalments.

Emery has admitted he would like more business done as Arsenal look to improve on last season’s fifth-placed Premier League finish.

And Express Sport has looked at three deals that could go through before Thursday’s 5pm deadline.

Wilfried Zaha

Zaha has been linked with a move to the Emirates all summer.

The Gunners made a bid for the Crystal Palace star though fell way below the £80m valuation the Eagles have put on the winger.

Zaha seems to have fallen off Emery’s radar but don’t discount the Gunners going back in for the former Manchester United man.

Attack may not be where Emery needs to strengthen, but that didn’t stop him signing Pepe.

Daniele Rugani

Personal terms have reportedly been agreed with Juventus centre-back Rugani, though a fee is yet to be sorted.

Rugani is expected to replace Laurent Koscielny, who signed for Ligue 1 side Bordeaux.

Rugani would be Arsenal’s first defensive signing this summer, and one that is badly needed.

He helped Juventus to their eighth Serie A title in a row last season and has bags of experience.

Kieran Tierney

Rugani could be joined in Arsenal’s backline by Celtic star Tierney.

Another that Emery has put in bids for, the full-back has long been on Arsenal’s radar.

He missed the start of the Scottish Premiership season with injury but that’s unlikely to put Emery off.

Celtic boss Neil Lennon expected another bid so don’t be surprised to see a late scramble.
