Good morning Arsenal fans
Arsenal have contacted West Ham to make an official bid for Jarrod Bowen.
The Gunners are looking to sign a new winger before the summer transfer window closes.
According to transfer expert Ben Jacobs, the North Londoners are considering a move for Bowen but the Hammers are not keen to sell.
When speaking to Give Me Sport, Jacobs said: “With Bowen, West Ham’s stance remains that they really don’t want to sell.
“So there’s a lot of clubs circling over Bowen, but the challenge, much like Declan Rice, is persuading West Ham to sell during this window and West Ham remain pretty intent not to let him go.
“So, there’s lots of excitement about Bowen moving potentially to a club like Arsenal, but it’s all hypothetical at the moment, because West Ham don’t want to sell.
“Arsenal have definitely made an enquiry around Bowen to see what the situation is, but that’s what they’ve been told.”
Meanwhile, Lucas Torreira’s Arsenal exit is stalling after the midfielder refused to get on the plane to Turkey.
Torreira was expected to complete a £7.5million transfer to Galatasaray this week after being deemed surplus to requirements by manager Mikel Arteta.
An aircraft was booked and ready to transport him to Istanbul for his medical and to sign the paperwork on a three-year contract.
But according to Daily Express reporter Ryan Taylor, Torreira decided not to board on Tuesday as planned – instead, he wanted more time to make a final call.
And Arsenal ace Folarin Balogun has joined Reims on a season-long loan.
Despite previous speculation linking Balogun with a permanent move to France, there is no option to buy clause in the contract.
The Gunners still believe that the centre-forward will have a huge future at the club.
A statement read: “Everyone at Arsenal wishes Flo all the best this coming season with Stade de Reims.
“The loan deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.”
Finally, Arsenal ace Pablo Mari is set to move to Monza this summer.
According to transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio, Mari is going to join the Italian outfit in the coming days.
The defender spent last term with Udienese on loan.
The Spaniard is among the players Arteta is looking to offload in the summer
