Arsenal news and transfers live: Kylian Mbappe imminent, Yves Bissouma blow, Aubameyang interest

The Gunners returned to winning ways on Wednesday night with a 6-0 win in the Carabao Cup over West Brom, but they return to Premier League action against Manchester City tomorrow hoping to prevent a third loss in a row in the competition.

Off the pitch, the last few days of the summer transfer window could be very important for Arsenal.

Following on from Lucas Torreira’s move to Fiorentina, a number of players in Mikel Arteta's squad are still being linked with a transfer away from the Emirates before the window closes, whilst Edu is still on the lookout for some potential new signings.

The likes of Kieran Trippier and Houssem Aouar are among names linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium, but there could well be some twist and turns before Tuesday’s 11pm deadline.
