While the focus of the football world may be elsewhere right now, especially in England, Arsenal have their sights firmly set on making the most of the summer transfer window. To them, it doesn’t really matter whether or not the Three Lions progress into the final of the World Cup tonight, because their biggest priority associated with that team will be whether or not Danny Welbeck will be returning to the Emirates as a fully fit forward ahead of the new season.

Arsenal have been about as busy as their fanbase could’ve realistically hoped for them to be in the first month or so of the summer transfer window, and as we look ahead to August and the start of the new Premier League season, it’s clear to see that they aren’t going to be slowing down just yet. We can debate over the quality of the players that they’re going after until we’re red in the face, but at the end of the day, Unai Emery is putting a plan in place to try and get the Gunners back to where they need to be – and that’s an exciting thing to be a part of.

First off: we thoroughly apologise for the title, but if we hadn’t of gone for it, then we probably would’ve hated ourselves forever.

Some people know and others don’t, but Brighton & Hove Albion defender Lewis Dunk has actually been linked to Arsenal a handful of times now. The 26-year-old, who is a hometown hero of sorts, has been at the club since 2010 with many long-since believing that he deserved a move to one of the Premier League’s elite. Alas, it seems as if for now, he’ll have to wait and see what happens throughout the remainder of his tenure with the Seagulls.

Sampdoria president announces Torreira departure 0

Posted on June 20, 2018 by Veselin Trajkovic

According to Sky Sports (and other outlets as well), Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero has confirmed that Lucas Torreira has left the club.

Torreira’s contract with the Italian club reportedly contains a £22million release clause, and Arsenal, reluctant to pay the whole sum up front, offered to pay an increased fee of £26.4million (€30million) in several installments instead.

Ferrero spoke live on Italian television and sad Torreira had left for €30million. He praised the club’s business sense as they signed the midfielder from Pescara in 2015 for just 10% of the sum they are set to cash in on his departure. After spending a season on loan back at Pescara, Torreira made a total of 74 appearances for Sampdoria and scored four goals along the way.
