Latest Arsenal transfer rumours: Battle with Spurs for Barcelona midfielder, star open to move

Arsenal transfer news includes links from across Europe ahead of the summer transfer window




On the pitch, Arsenal remain in the chase for both the Europa League and a Premier League top four spot. But off it, things are also starting to heat up.


The summer transfer window is getting closer every day and Arsenal are still yet to bring in the technical director they had hoped for to guide them through it.

Despite that, the rumours linking the Gunners with a variety of players from around the globe are not going away any time soon.

Here are the latest updates and rumours for the players the Gunners have been linked with in the press in the last 24 hours.

 

Andre Gomes

Arsenal have reportedly entered the race to sign Barcelona midfielder Andre Gomes this summer.

The 25-year-old is currently on loan with Everton, and the Gunners have been following his appearances on Merseyside closely, according to  ESPN .

The Toffees are hopeful of concluding a permanent deal for the €30m-rated midfielder, and Spurs have also been linked with the Portuguese star. Despite Arsenal’s interest, there has apparently been no contact with Barcelona over a move.

Arsenal’s director of football Raul Sanllehi was involved in the deal that took Gomes to Barca from Benfica, and along with Unai Emery is said to be an admirer of the midfielder.

 

Samuel Umtiti

Samuel Umtiti has reportedly told Barcelona that he wants to stay at the club and is willing to see out his current contract, despite losing his place in the team.

A knee injury saw him forced out of action, with Clement Lenglet seizing the opportunity to establish himself as a first-team regular alongside Gerard Pique.

Arsenal reportedly have their sights firmly set on Barcelona' Samuel Umtiti.

A number of teams including Arsenal and Manchester United have been tracking Umtiti ahead of a potential summer transfer, but according to  Le Parisien , Umtiti has told Barcelona that he will not be considering offers from any other clubs this summer.

The 25-year-old is valued between €60m-80m, and has told his representatives that he believes a move away from Barca would be a step down in his career. He has apparently outlined his ambition of staying at Camp Nou for a number of years and one day becoming captain of the Spanish giants.

Umtiti’s knee problem is apparently fully healed now, though he will need to continue muscle-strengthening exercises on his thigh.

 

David Neres

Ajax star David Neres has offered Arsenal and their competitors hope this summer by suggesting that he will listen to transfer offers.

The 22-year-old is having a good end to the season for the Dutch side, impressing in both the Eredivisie and the Champions League. Arsenal and Liverpool are both said to be watching him ahead of a possible move in the summer.

Neres told  Voetbal Primeur  that he’s aware of the speculation, and nothing is being ruled out at the end of the season.

"I have to see what is best for me, for my career and my family.

"We will see what the future holds, but I have a contract here and I am satisfied here."

According to  Kicker , the 23-year-old, who can play in either defence or midfield, was not allowed to leave Mainz last year but a move at the end of the season will be sanctioned if they received an offer of around £30m.
