We’ll get straight onto the main target Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang where Arsenal’s Chief executive Ivan Gazidis is still in Germany today for talks with Borussia Dortmund about a possible deal.
We understand a deal is likely to be agreed by Wednesday but it might mean Giroud going the other way on a loan deal to save the German side searching for an immediate replacement. Should all of the above happen it will mean Welbeck will stay.
Jorginho of Napoli appears to be on the verge of signing a new contact which will mean Arsenal will have to look elsewhere for a Francis Coquelin replacement.
As for a centre back there are rumours of Arsenal taking an interest in Juventus centre back Daniele Rugani. The 23 year old has represented Italy at every age level including 4 senior caps.
Arsenal like Richarlison but believe he’s best gaining experience at Watford for the moment so should interest remain there could well be a move during the summer window.
