Firstly, a surprise report broke earlier this afternoon that claims Houssem Aouar is on the verge of completing his move to the Emirates Stadium at last.

The Lyon playmaker has long been linked with the Gunners and it now seems he’s arrived in London for his medical, with the deal perhaps set to become official by Friday.

The Aouar Arsenal transfer could be one of the most significant deals of the window if it goes through, as it could be that final missing ingredient that turns Mikel Arteta’s side into title contenders, or at least significantly boosts their top four hopes.

Elsewhere, there’s a more worrying update as it looks like Manchester United are in advanced talks over signing Arsenal starlet Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

The 23-year-old has been a key part of Arteta’s side recently, establishing himself as a big-game player who can fill a variety of roles.

United’s deal for Maitland-Niles is now described as being 80% done, with the England international looking increasingly likely to move to Old Trafford for around £20million.

Finally, another exit on the cards is Lucas Torreira, whose agent is in Madrid to finalise a move taking the Uruguay international to Atletico.

Torreira has long been linked with Diego Simeone’s side, and it now looks like the finishing touches are being put on the move.

The 24-year-old could be a good fit for Atletico, though it remains to be seen if this will be a loan or a permanent deal, with Arsenal favouring the latter, presumably to raise funds for the likes of Aouar.

      1. Solely to generate fund to sign Aouar and Thomas PARTEY perhaps. It doesn’t make sense whichever way.

  1. We have come to a situation where we need to clear some players before we can buy. However, I have no misgivings provided the incoming players are upgrade on the departing ones.

  2. Arsenal should do away with redundancy,by laying off some players but Maitland Nails should be kept or sold to any other European team but not Manchester United

  3. Nice one!the deal should be announced quickly and if the board can’t get partey along then we should go for the other man in serie A and be play as a DM.

  4. Superb on Aouar.., but I reckon selling Niles will be another fiasco. #think again#

  5. Any way I won’t be happy to see Niles living there other players who were supposed to be sold but not Niles

  6. Niles – just what United doesn’t need. Is he a LB? No. Is he a center half? No. Is he a striker? No. Typical of their lousy approach to this transfer window.

  7. I think we can sell any player but the problem is we not playing good football and winning through luck every game. I tink we need to sort that out by the coach changing the system suit our best players and not try to change our culture as that will back fire in future games.
