Morning, Arsenal fans

Edu expects more ‘exciting, young’ signings after Fabio Vieira became Arsenal’s third summer recruit.

Technical director Edu claims recruiting £34million Porto playmaker Vieira shows the Gunners are developing a squad for the next SIX YEARS.

He said: “We have to go into the market for exciting players with the right age, right attitude and right mentality.

“We want to see a club like Arsenal with a young squad, an exciting squad with a big, big future.”

USA keeper Matt Turner and Brazilian forward Marquinhos have also arrived at the Emirates.

Leicester midfielder Youri Tielemans, Manchester City frontman Gabriel Jesus, Leeds winger Raphinha and Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez are regarded as top targets.

Talks over signing Brazil star Jesus for around £50m are a ‘critical stage’.

Goal suggest there is ‘hope between all parties that an agreement can be reached quickly’.

But the Gunners could face a duel with Tottenham for another Brazilian, Raphinha.

Lastly, it’s thought Arsenal and Newcastle head Manchester United and City in the hunt for Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz.
