Arsenal news and transfers LIVE: Raphinha twist, Gabriel Jesus to sign, Saliba contract talks

The Gunners are set for yet another busy summer window ahead. Mikel Arteta and director Edu will be looking to strengthen their squad ahead of a huge 2022/23 campaign, where Europa League football is back on the cards.

The club have already added two signings in Marquinhos and Fabio Vieira, while USMNT goalkeeper Matt Turner is expected to join too. More incomings are expected, with Gabriel Jesus and Raphinha heavily linked with a move to the Emirates.

With that in mind, sit back and let us keep you up to date with the latest from north London.

Jesus claim

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Gabriel Jesus was approached by six different clubs but it was always Arsenal that were his priority.

Writing on Instagram, Romano said: "Gabriel Jesus joins Arsenal on permanent deal, it’s now 100% done and completed: here we go! Arsenal had a new direct contact with Gabriel’s agent Marcelo Pettinati @energysports13 & his partners Paulo Pitombeira and Caca Ferrari, full agreement reached on personal terms.

"Gabriel Jesus will sign until June 2027 as new Arsenal player, his main priority since long time - deal is now all completed and 100% done. Man City already accepted final proposal for £45m guaranteed fee received from Arsenal, as revealed here on Friday.

"Six clubs approached agents of Gabriel Jesus but his priority has always been Arsenal - director Edu and Mikel Arteta, key to complete the deal. Arsenal will announce Gabriel as third signing after Matt Turner and Fábio Vieira… and then it’s absolutely not over yet."

Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has reported on social media Arsenal have scheduled a meeting with Leeds United regarding Raphinha for some time this week.

Writing on Twitter, Romano said: "Raphinha deal. Arsenal have already scheduled a meeting with Leeds next week - Leeds will ask again for £65m fee."
