A striker is a top priority for Mikel Arteta this summer. Alexandre Lacazette has rejoined Lyon, while talks over Eddie Nketiah’s new contract continue.
Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus is the top target and talks are being held between the two clubs. Chelsea have also been linked with the Brazil international, though Arsenal are thought to be leading the race for his signature.
The Premier League fixtures were released on Thursday and Arteta’s side will begin the campaign away to Crystal Palace on August 5. Arsenal’s first home match of the season will be the following weekend against Leicester, with a potential match against his former team for Tielemans if a deal can be completed by then.
