Alexandre Lacazette has left Arsenal and has been confirmed as an Olympique Lyon player again. His departure follows fast in the wake of that of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Barcelona in January, and Arsenal have found themselves desperately short of strikers, despite Eddie Nketiah reportedly changing his mind about leaving and being close to signing a new contract.

Naturally, the club have turned to the transfer market in order to sort the issue out, and here’s what the Evening Standard are reporting about that mission.

A few days ago, Sassuolo sporting director Giovanni Carnevali named Arsenal as the favourites among the clubs outside of Italy interested in Manuel Locatelli, though he also said there were talks with Juventus as well. It seems there have been fresh developments in this matter, however, and as relayed by Fabrizio Romano, Carnevali says the talks with one club abroad are ‘really advanced’.

“We’re gonna meet with Juventus in the next days, but there are no negotiations yet with Juve as Italian clubs are in difficult financial situation,” Carnevali adds.

Arsenal and Juventus are set to compete for the signature of Sassuolo’s Manuel Locatelli, according to the Serie A side’s sporting director Giovanni Carnevali. As relayed by Sky Sports, Carnevali said Sassuolo were in talks with the Old Lady, but also that Arsenal are leading the race when it comes to clubs outside Italy.

Sassuolo spoke to Juventus, the only Italian club in the running at the moment, last week, in a meeting between Carnevali and the Turin giants’ own sporting director, Federico Cherubini.

Premier League outfit Arsenal have joined chase for the in-form French forward Gregoire Defrel, according to reports from Daily Mail.

Gunners have joined chase for in-demand Sassuolo striker, who has been closely watched by Crystal Palace, Swansea and Liverpool.

Swansea were keeping an eye on the striker last January as the Welsh side utilised their Italian contacts through manager Francesco Guidolin to keep Defrel in the loop.

Arsene Wenger was also alarmed by the in-form striker having reportedly sent his scouts to watch the 25-year-old striker in action on three different occasions this season and is likely to continue to monitor his progress ahead of a potential January deal.

According to Sky Italia and the Guardian, Arsenal are set to launch a £22million bid for Juventus forward Simone Zaza in January. No sooner had the transfer window shut, there is already a rumour linking the Gunners with a striker.

Reports are suggesting the Gunners made a late attempt to sign Zaza on transfer deadline day, but the couple of magic beans that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger offered was not enough to persuade the Turin club to part-company with the forward.

Arsenal on the trail of Italian wonderkid 0

According to the Metro, Arsenal are interested in signing highly-rated young Sassuolo striker Domenico Bernardi this summer.

The 20-year-old is currently co-owned by the Serie A minnows and reigning champions Juventus, but it seems that Italian champions are unlikely to exercise their right to sign the youngster. Bernardi has never actually appeared for Juventus and spent the last three seasons with the Neroverdi.


The Gunners could sign the highly-rated striker for a fee in the region of £11million, as co-ownership is being abolished as of the summer transfer window in Italy. That means if Juventus do not exercise their right to sign the striker this summer, then Sassuolo can sell the striker to whoever they wish.
