Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Gabriel Jesus LATEST, Raphinha 'on verge', Turner SNUBS Spurs fan, Martinez bid | The Sun

ARSENAL are set to complete the signing of Raphinha this week, according to reports.

The Leeds United star has attracted interest from several clubs this summer including Barcelona.

Meanwhile, Gunners fans are already hailing incoming signing Matt Turner before even playing a game for the Gunners.

After his last game in the MLS, the New England Revolution star denied signing a shirt for a fan wearing a Spurs strip, calling it 'disgusting'.

Arsenal are putting together a following bid for Ajax star Lisandro Martinez after the Eredivisie champions rejected their offer of €30m for the Argentine international.

    Leeds 'expecting' Arsenal Raphinha approach

    Leeds are expecting Arsenal to make an approach for Brazilian winger Raphinha.

    According to The Times, the Gunners are set to launch a £50million bid for the player.

    However, Raphinha is attracting interest from a number of top clubs.

    Tottenham are also said to be keen, but the player prefers a move to Barcelona.

    Jesus ‘closing in on Arsenal transfer'

    Gabriel Jesus is closing in on his Arsenal transfer, according to reports.

    The Gunners previously saw a bid of around £30million for the Brazilian striker rejected.

    But Goal report they will go back to Manchester City with an improved offer.

    Although it may still not match the champions' valuation of £50m, the second bid will likely include performance-related add-ons which could bump the overall price up and is expected to be accepted.

    Jesus, 25, has just one year left on his deal at the Etihad.

    And the arrivals of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund and Julian Alvarez from River Plate mean he looks set to be on his way out – the Norwegian even looks set to steal his No9 shirt.

    Clarke joins Stoke City

    Highly rated Arsenal youngster Harry Clarke will be joining Stoke City on loan for the 2022/23 season.

    The 21 year-old defender gained valuable experience in Scotland last season on loan with Premiership clubs Ross County and Hibernian.

    Arsenal have wished Clarke the best of luck for the upcoming season.

    Is Arsenal vs Everton on TV?

    Arsenal look to continue their preparations for the 2022/23 season as they take on Everton in the opening game of their US tour.

    Mikel Arteta will welcome another one of his former clubs to the M&T Bank Stadium in the Charm City Match, inspired by the city’s nickname.

    This comes off the back of Arsenal's clash against FC Nurnberg as part of a pre-season training camp at the adidas HQ in Germany.

    The game forms part of the Gunners' three-match tour to the east coast of the United States.

    Following their game against the Toffees, Arsenal will also line up against Orlando City and Chelsea as part of the FC Series.

    What time does Arsenal vs Everton kick off?

    • Arsenal face Everton on Saturday July 16.
    • It is scheduled to kick off at 12am UK time – 7pm local time.
    • The M&T Bank Stadium, home of the Baltimore Ravens, will play host to the all Premier League fixture and seats more than 71,000 fans.
    • The Gunners thrashed Everton 5-1 the last time the teams met on the final day of 2021/22 Premier League season.

    Gooners celebrate Bergkamp anniversary

    It's 27 years to the day since Arsenal completed the signing of Dennis Bergkamp from Inter Milan for £7.5m…

    …and helped change the history of the football club.

    After a slow start to his career at Highbury, Bergkamp soon blossomed in the Premier League, and transformed the reputation of the Gunners from that of a dour, one-dimensional side into one of the most exciting and creative teams in Europe.

    How Partey and Melo compare

    Speculation linking Thomas Partey with a move to Juventus refuses to go away, and there has once again been talk of a swap deal involving Arthur Melo.

    Both players had to deal with stop-start seasons last time around, and this is how their figures compare.

    Gunners getting close to Jesus

    Arsenal are on the verge of completing the signing of Gabriel Jesus, according to Goal.

    They believe a structured deal – eventually worth City's asking price £50m – could be announced in the coming days.

    It is thought that Tottenham's recent interest is of little threat to Arsenal's hopes of landing the striker as his wants assurances of first team football.

    First up for the Gunners

    The new season is just 46 days away, and Arsenal will once again kick it off with a Friday night London derby – this time at Crystal Palace.

    Transfer watch: Raphinha to Arsenal?

    This deal is moving very, very quickly. With Barcelona out of the running, the Gunners look red hot favourites to land Raphinha.

      Barca stall on Gunners target

      Arsenal’s hopes of bagging Raphinha have been boosted significantly after it was revealed that Barcelona are yet to submit a bid for the Leeds ace

      Fabrizio Romano recently revealed that Barca have had personal terms agreed with the player’s agent Deco since February.

      However, no official offer from the club has been forthcoming, and it is said that the Brazilian forward is not prepared to wait any longer.

      Meanwhile, the Gunners are said to have tabled a lucrative bid for the 25-year-old, and are confident of completing a quick deal.

      Leeds are thought to want in the realm of £50m for their star man.

      Turner shows he's a keeper

      Never mind the debate regarding Aaron Ramsdale and Bernd Leno, Arsenal supporters have a new favourite goalkeeper – and they haven't even seen him play yet.

      Matt Turner will arrive at the Emirates next month after agreeing a deal earlier in the year to join the Gunners from New England Revolution.

      And after playing his last game for the MLS side at the weekend, the departing American international stopped to sign autographs for fans.

      However, on seeing a Tottenham strip heading in his direction, Turner quickly shunned the shirt and moved away before labelling it 'disgusting'.

      Legend status: confirmed.

      Ajax reject Arsenal's Martinez bid

      Ajax have swiftly rejected Arsenal's opening bid for Lisandro Martinez, and insist that the defender is not for sale.

      According to TyC Sports, the Gunners approached the Amsterdam club with an offer of €30m for the Argentine international.

      With no release fee in his contract, the Eredivisie champions are under no pressure to sell the 24-year-old centre-back.

      However, the North London club remain undeterred, and are expected to return to the negotiation table soon with an improved deal.

      Oh Jesus! Spurs in for striker

      Tottenham pipped Arsenal to the post in the race for Champions League football – and now may do the same in order to land Gabriel Jesus.

      According to The Mirror, Spurs have emerged as serious competition to sign the Manchester City striker.

      And to add insult to injury, the North London club will use their top-four status to lure the forward from under the noses of their bitter rivals.

      Jesus scored eight goals for the Premier League champions last season, but anticipates missing out on a first team place following the arrival of Erling Haaland.

      Good morning Arsenal fans

      Arsenal are preparing to launch a bid for Atletico Madrid’s Alvaro Morata.

      The former Chelsea man looks set to be the latest target as the Gunners look to replace outgoing Alexandre Lacazette.

      The 29-year-old spent the last two seasons on loan at Juventus, which coincided with the Old Lady losing their grip on the Serie A trophy.

      The Spaniard has not yet seen his loan spell in Turin made permanent, although the Italian giants remain keen on tying him down.

      Arsenal left-back Kieran Tierney has emerged as a shock transfer target for Manchester City, according to reports.

      The 25-year-old is said to be highly-rated at the Etihad.

      Tierney features on City’s left-back shortlist, according to The Scotsman.

      Pep Guardiola is thought to be keen to add in that position this summer with Oleksandr Zinchenko rumoured to be heading for the exit door.

      According to A Bola, super agent Jorge Mendes made a huge sum for negotiating Fabio Vieira’s move from Porto to Arsenal.

      The Gunners paid £35million for the attacking midfield star – and Mendes earned a staggering £4.2million for his part in that.

      Bellerin wants Spain return

      Hector Bellerin will reject a move to Serie A in favour of a return to Spain.

      The right-back spent last season on loan at Real Betis, and was reluctant to return to Emirates.

      Now back with the Gunners, Bellerin wants a move away – but he won't go to Fiorentina and Roma, according to Estadio Deportivo.

      Betis have said they are unable to pay the £10million transfer fee to make the move permanent.

      Bellerin is even said to be threatening to tear up his contract and leave on a free.

      Arthur interest cooled

      Arsenal are no longer interested in Brazil international Arthur, according to reports.

      Tuttosport say the Gunners have gone 'cold' in the chase, and have dropped out the running entirely.

      The 25-year-old midfielder was set to sign for the Gunners on an initial six-month deal, until it fell through in January.

      But now, they are chasing other targets – and Roma are said to have joined the hunt instead.

      Tierney chased by City

      Arsenal left-back Kieran Tierney has emerged as a shock transfer target for Arsenal, according to reports.

      The 25-year-old is said to be highly-rated at the Etihad.

      Tierney features on Manchester City's left-back shortlist, according to The Scotsman.

      Pep Guardiola is thought to be keen to add in that position this summer with Oleksandr Zinchenko rumoured to be heading for the exit door.

      Marc Cucerella has been linked with a £50m switch to the Etihad but Brighton are determined to keep hold of the 23-year-old Spaniard.

      Morata bid

      Arsenal are preparing to launch a bid for Atletico Madrid's Alvaro Morata.

      The former Chelsea man looks set to be the latest target as the Gunners look to replace outgoing Alexandre Lacazette.

      The 29-year-old spent the last two seasons on loan at Juventus, which coincided with the Old Lady losing their grip on the Serie A trophy.

      The Spaniard has not yet seen his loan spell in Turin made permanent, although the Italian giants remain keen on tying him down.

      Morata joined London rivals Chelsea in 2017, although he failed to reach the heights compatriot Diego Costa hit in the seasons before.

      According to The Mirror, Mikel Arteta's side may look to capitalise on the slow negotiations in Italy as they look for a cheaper deal.

        Raphina Prem snub

        Leeds star Raphina is prepared to snub Liverpool, Chelsea or Arsenal for a move to Spain, according to reports.

        Mundo Deportivo claim the Brazil international is waiting for Barcelona to make their move, and is prepared to hold on until that happens.

        Leeds want around £47million for the winger.

        But Barcelona hope they will be able to negotiate a cheaper deal.

        Mendes windfall

        The Gunners paid £35million for the attacking midfield star.

        And Mendes earned a staggering £4.2million for his part in that.

        Porto star Vitinha is also a client of Mendes, who moved to PSG for £30million – netting him another windfall.

        Neto deal

        Barcelona are reportedly working on a deal with reserve goalkeeper Neto that could see him leave the club.

        The Catalans are looking into terminating the Arsenal target 's contract to trim their wage bill, according to reports in Spain.

        The 32-year-old shotstopper is said to be keen on a move to North London, and has other offers on the table.

        Any potential move could hinder on whether Bernd Leno leaves the Gunners for Fulham, after reportedly holding talks with the Cottagers.

        Sterling move may scupper Jesus deal

        Raheem Sterling's potential move to Chelsea could scupper Arsenal's plans to sign Gabriel Jesus.

        Sky Italy say that the Blues are confident of securing a move for the England winger.

        And they believe that if a deal for Sterling is completed, City would be reluctant to lose Jesus as well.

        Arsenal have had a bid of £30million rejected by Pep Guardiola's side, who are holding out for £50million.
