Arsenal transfer news latest: Lucas Vazquez, Dani Ceballos, Marcelo, Wilfried Zaha, Yacine Brahimi.

Arsenal have made approaches for three Real Madrid players, enquiring over Dani CeballosLucas Vazquez and Marcelo.

Spanish publication AS claim Vazquez could sign for the Gunners as early as next week, after the club signalled that they are willing to meet Madrid’s £30m evaluation.

Veteran full-back Marcelo is being eyed as a possible replacement if the Gunners fail to secure the signature of Celtic’s Kieran Tierney

The Gunners’ £17.5m bid for the Celtic player was turned down by the Scottish champions due to nonsensical add-ons.

Unai Emery’s side are also one of a number of clubs monitoring Madrid midfielder Ceballos.

The 22-year-old starred for Spain in the recent Under-21 Euros and as Real look to recoup some cash from their fringe players could be available for the right price.

Marca say Arsenal are joined by Liverpool and Tottenham in the race for his signature.

Arsenal have apparently been offered a fresh alternative to Wilfried Zaha in the form of Barcelona’s Malcom.

The Gunners came close to signing the 22-year-old Brazilian last summer and have been offered the opportunity to do so again after a stuttering season with the Spanish champions.

There appears to be no movement in Arsenal’s move for Zaha since an opening bid of £40m was dismissed out of hand by Crystal Palace with the club seeing it as an intentional attempt to unsettle the Ivorian.

The Mirror are reporting that the south London club may cut all communications with the Gunners unless there is a significant improvement in their offer.

Zaha is desperate to make the move with his brother recently describing the move as a “dream”.

Free agent Yacine Brahimi is edging closer to a move to North London, with the Evening Standard reporting the former Porto player is Arsenal’s second choice behind Zaha.

Brahimi will demand a £3m signing-on fee but personal terms are not thought to be an issue.

The Mirror have also reported that Alexandre Lacazette is a target for Atlético Madrid as a replacement for the Barcelona-bound Antoine Griezmann but Arsenal are reluctant to sell the Frenchman.

In other outgoings, young defender Daniel Ballard has joined Swindon Town on a season-long loan.

L’Equipe are also reporting that Bordeaux have made Laurent Koscielny their primary transfer target this summer with Arsenal demanding at least €10m for the 33-year-old.
