As reported by the Mirror, Arsenal have been told that Benfica defender Ruben Dias will cost them at least £35 million.

Per Mertesacker is set to retire from playing at the end of the season. Laurent Koscielny, the team’s long-serving defensive stalwart, turns 33 in September and has recently been riddled by injuries. While Shkodran Mustafi is a very good player and Rob Holding is maturing into a class defender, the Gunners obviously need to reinforce their defensive line this summer.

As reported by The Sun, Arsenal are supposedly interested in securing the signing of highly rated German goalkeeper Bernd Leno.

The Gunners are believed to be the favourites in the race to acquire the 24-year-old’s signature, in a move that would likely cost them around £25 million. This is the latest in a string of rumours surrounding the North London club as we head towards the summer transfer window, although this is one of the first regarding a non-attacking position.

Arsenal have been handed a major boost in the race to sign Bordeaux forward Malcom as Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich seem to have effectively pull out of the chase.

The Bavarians were believed to be leading the chase for the Brazilian as several club officials confirmed their interest, but it appears that head coach Jupp Heynckes doesn’t share their opinion.

Namely, the experienced tactician has made it clear he is not interested in 21-year-old winger.

“I have never seen him play,” Heynckes told at a press conference. “Therefore, I am not able give an opinion on him.

Manchester United have been reported to have expressed an interest in signing Arsenal fullback Hector Bellerin.

According to Manchester Evening News, Jose Mourinho is looking to bring in a long-term successor to Antonio Valencia. The 32-year-old Ecuadorian has been one of Premier League’s most consistent performers in a fullback position for several years, but as he has reached an age when his overall level is likely to decline, it makes sense for United to start thinking about the future of the position. Bellerin, who boasts similar qualities but is nine years younger, would fit their need well.

As reported by Daily Mirror, AC Milan forward Andre Silva is a target for Arsene Wenger heading into the summer transfer window, although there seems to be competition from an unexpected club – Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The 22-year-old Portuguese superstar has been on the radar of many top European clubs for quite some time now, and as it turns out, the Gunners are a part of that list. Ironically enough Silva recently visited the Emirates as an opposition player, which could’ve actually helped Arsenal’s case as they continue to go in search of Champions League football.

The Express have quoted a report from Spanish newspapers AS that Arsenal are interested in bringing Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Jan Oblak to the Emirates this summer.

Petr Cech has often been criticized this season for some mistakes unusual for a ‘keeper of such class and experience, and the report suggests the Gunners are looking to solve the problem by bringing in the £88 million-rated Slovenian international.

Despite the criticism, Cech recently kept his 200th Premier League clean sheet – the first goalkeeper in the Premier League to do so, while David Ospina has put in a decent performance every time he was given a chance.

The 26-year-old has been sought after for a long time now, with many teams both in Spain and abroad feeling like they can offer him a better home that he’s currently got at the Bernabeu.

Transfer news might be the last thing Arsenal fans want to hear at the moment but we can’t run away from them, especially when they involve some rather tasty players such as Benfica starlet Andrija Zivkovic.

The 21-year-old Serbian winger continues to put in impressive displays for Portuguese champions this season as he hopes to land a regular first-team spot at Benfica.

Arsene Wenger landed Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang during the January transfer window to make a significant boost to Gunners’ attacking line but the Frenchman is now shifting focus to defensive reinforcements.

Arsenal have been linked with a move for Lazio defender Stefan de Vrij but the Netherlands international now looks closest to joining Liverpool.

De Vrij has recently admitted he would not be signing a contract extension with Lazio which prompted speculation about his future but Arsenal have admitted defeat in the race to sign the 26-year-old and shifted their attention to another target.
