Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Gunners suffer Locatelli blow, Ben White £50m exclusive, Aouar PSG battle, Maddison LATEST


    Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta expects to see new faces at the club this summer.

    Arteta told the Arsenal website: “Now [it’s time for] a little bit of recovery.

    “We trained really hard, played two games, and now we’re going to be travelling to America in the next week.

    “We didn’t have any injuries which is really positive in the first week.

    “We’re going to have some new faces arriving probably, so very positive.”

    Juventus are leading the race to sign Sassuolo and Italy star Manuel Locatelli.

    The player is pushing a move to Juventus.

    Arsenal are also interested in the midfielder and are willing to pay the price Sassuolo demand.

    But the player prefers to stay in Italy.

    Juventus are still in contention to sign Houssem Aouar, according to Tutto Mercato.

    PSG and Liverpool could also rival Arsenal for the Frenchman’s signature.

    Losing out to a rival would be a crushing blow for Mikel Arteta, who has been keen on the midfielder since last summer.

    Arsenal are closing in on the signing of Brighton and England defender Ben White.

    According to the Times, the Gunners have agreed to pay Brighton £50million for White.

    The 23-year-old completed his first full season in the top flight last season, and made his England debut.

    Tony Cascarino has backed Ben White to succeed at Arsenal under Mikel Arteta.

    He told talkSPORT: “He’s a very versatile defender, who ticks the box of can you play him in different positions, can you play him in a four and in a three? Most certainly so.

    “I watched him at Leeds and Brighton and I think they’re getting a very accomplished player of a certain age.”
