With the World Cup centre stage, we tend to forget that there are still transfer negotiations going on all over Europe. Arsenal have reportedly been busy. The Express have been helpful in giving us an update. Here are the players currently linked with the Gunners:

Heung-Min Son

Yes, according to German media outlet Sport1, the Germany slayer could be a transfer target for the Gunners, Manchester United and Liverpool this summer.

Son has impressed at Arsenal’s bitter rivals Tottenham. However, a move to the Gunners seems highly unlikely. In fact, I doubt Spurs would be keen to sell the South Korean international, especially not to their rivals.

Sokratis Papasthatopoulos’ move to Arsenal has been announced by Borussia Dortmund Sporting Director Michael Zorc, according to Sky Sports. In fact, the German club have already secured a potential long-term replacement by signing 22-year-old French centre-back Abdou Diallo from Mainz.

Earlier reports claimed the two clubs had come near an agreement for a fee of around £16million.

The long-awaited, likely arrival of the Greece international will be another part of the defensive overhaul the newly appointed manager Unai Emery is currently undergoing at the Emirates, and amid all the glamour of the World Cup in full swing at the moment this is a refreshing piece of news for Arsenal fans.

Turkish international wants Gunners move 0

Young Turkish defender Caglar Soyuncu has revealed that he would like to move to Arsenal. The 22-year-old has been linked with a £35million move to North London this summer.

However, the defender has stated that any deal depends on his German club Freiburg, who have yet to agree a deal with a club for the defender’s services.

Talking about his future, Soyuncu told Turkish media outlet Gunes: ‘Arsenal are an option & I want to go there. But I have 3 more years on my current contract and everything depends on the club [Freiburg],’

The summer transfer kitty to be increased by £20million 0

According to the Telegraph, Stan Kroenke has decided to make extra £20million available for transfers this summer.

It had been initially announced that the club’s transfer kitty would amount to £50million plus any income generated by player sales, but now that sum has gone up to £70million. A small increase, but a welcome one, nevertheless.

Money aside, the first signing of the Unai Emery era might come as a free transfer. The contract of Juventus full-back Stephan Lichtsteiner is about to expire and at Arsenal they believe the presence of the Switzerland captain would bring some much needed leadership qualities to the back line, as Laurent Koscielny remains unavailable at least until November. The team captain suffered knee ligament damage in the second leg of the Europa League semi-final against Atletico Madrid.

According to the Telegraph, Arsenal are set to launch a £35million for highly-rated young Freiburg centre-back Caglar Soyuncu, despite the fact that the club has not yet named a successor to long-serving boss Arsene Wenger.

The Gunners have reportedly interviewed a number of candidates for the job and have made their decision on Wenger’s successor. However, none of the prospective candidates were asked about Soyuncu.

Soyuncu is a highly-rated 21-year-old Turkish international, who has reportedly attracted interest from Premier League clubs and also German giants Bayern Munich.

Arsenal are actively pursuing a deal to bring S.C. Freiburg defender Caglar Soyuncu to the Emirates this summer, according to Matt Law of the Telegraph.

Much has been said about Arsenal’s defence being shambolic lately. With the retirement of Per Mertesacker and injury keeping Laurent Koscielny out for at least six months, the situation is set to become much worse unless the club strengthen the defensive part of the squad significantly during the upcoming transfer window.
