Arsenal transfer news and rumours live: Houssem Aouar confirms talks, Lucas Torreira latest

Hello and welcome to Monday's Arsenal live transfer blog, where we will bring you the latest updates from the Emirates Stadium.

There’s one more week left of this summer’s transfer window, and the Gunners are still looking to add to their squad.

Mikel Arteta’s side are in action this evening, as they travel to the reigning Premier League champions Liverpool, with both sides look to continue their perfect starts.

Arsenal are still looking at adding to their squad before the window closes, and the man that’s been talked about the most is Houssem Aouar of Lyon.

There’s bound to be further updates on the French playmaker, as well as Thomas Partey - who continues to be linked.

Here, we will be keeping you updated throughout the day with our Arsenal live blog, dedicated to transfer stories that break throughout the day.

Aouar’s 100th appearance

Arsenal fans have wished Houssem Aouar well on his 100th appearance for Lyon.

But there’s a transfer motive behind the message.

Luna reports

The Mirror report that Arsenal are behind AC Milan and Manchester United in the race for Alex Luna.

Sixteen-year-old Luna scored 16 goals for Atletico Rafaela last season to become one of football's hottest teen sensations.

Whilst the Gunners have watched him closely, they are thought to be behind AC Milan and United in the race to land the attacker.

Torreira latest

Torino have confirmed that they will not be able to land Lucas Torreira this summer.

Arsenal are hopeful of moving the midfielder on in order to make room for Thomas Partey and Houssem Aouar.

Yet their asking price of £20m means that Torino sporting director Davide Vagnati ruled his side out of the running for the player.

He said:

Torreira is a top player but his price is too high. It's difficult to sign him from Arsenal, not just for us."
