But Mikel Arteta is not done yet, with another midfielder on the Gunners boss’ watchlist.

Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey a target, whilst Lyon’s Houssem Aouar has also been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium in recent weeks.

There also looks to be some outgoings, with the likes of Sead Kolasinac, Sokratis, and Lucas Torreira all linked with moves away from north London.

Luis Suarez

Luis Suarez has landed in Perugia this afternoon to take his Italian Language exam, in what appears to be a clear sign of his intentions.

The Barcelona striker, who has been previously linked with Arsenal, must obtain a European passport in order to sign for a Serie A side this summer, amid links with Juventus.

Saliba’s pride at No 4

Defender William Saliba will wear the No 4 shirt at Arsenal this season – following in the footsteps of the great Patrick Viera.

“I had an Arsenal jersey when I was little with Thierry Henry [on the back], so I liked the club since then,” Saliba told Arsenal’s club website. “Now I am very proud to have the Arsenal jersey.

“I don’t know why [I got it]! I went in the shop, and I only wanted Arsenal. I liked Vieira and Thierry Henry because I was little and I only knew the French players and they were very good.

“I am very, very proud to have the number four, so I have to be ready to carry number four.”

Houssem Aouar may have played final game for Lyon

Houssem Aouar may have played his final game for Olympique Lyon.

Aouar has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal this summer with a £50million deal mooted.

Houssem Aouar has been linked with a move to Arsenal throughout the summer.

Aouar fee set

As cited in the Metro, Lyon could hold out for a fee of around £55.5million, which Arsenal may struggle to pay unless they offload some of their current players.

Asked about the futures of both Aouar after Lyon’s loss to Montpellier, Lyon sporting director Juninho told Telefoot Chaine: “For now, there is nothing for these players.

“We have not received anything for Houssem, we have not received anything for Memphis [Depay.]”

Arsenal are interested in Houssem Aouar.
