Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Houssem Aouar, Thomas Partey, Boubakary Soumare – latest Premier League


Arsenal were humbled by Liverpool at Anfield on Monday night, proving Mikel Arteta’s journey is only just starting and that reinforcements are needed for the Gunners before the 5 October deadline. Midfield is the priority area to strengthen with the lengthy pursuits of Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey or Lyon’s Houssem Aouar.

Sales are needed to fund those moves however, with the difficulty in extracting value from the sale of Lucas Torreira, Matteo Guendouzi or Mesut Ozil, given the lack of suitors. A cheaper alternative midfield option could be Boubakary Soumare, with Lille ready to sell imminently.

Elsewhere, Reiss Nelson and possibly Emile Smith Rowe could earn loan moves to further develop with increased game time not available under Arteta, with Premier League clubs thought to be keen. And in defence,  Shkodran Mustafi, Sokratis and Calum Chambers also appear to be available as the Gunners look to cut their squad down.

LATEST AOUAR BID

Arsenal’s problem with Lyon for Houssem Aouar is less about meeting a daunting asking price and more about negotiating with OL.

The latest offer is thought to be £36.5m plus £9m add-ons.

But Lyon are still holding out for around £50m.

ATLETICO DEMAND FULL CLAUSE FOR THOMAS

Atletico Madrid will not sell Thomas Partey to Arsenal for a penny less than his buyout clause.

That’s according to The Athletic, with the Gunners now left to decide whether they want to trigger the £45m clause.

The Ghanaian was only a substitute in the second half of the 6-1 win over Granada at the weekend.
