Hello and welcome along to Thursday’s football.london Arsenal news and transfer news live blog, keeping you right up to date with all the very latest from the Emirates Stadium as it happens.
With the start of the 2021/22 Premier League campaign now just a month away, the Gunners, who face Rangers in their second pre-season friendly on Saturday afternoon, are looking to try and get as many new signings over the line as possible, with manager Mikel Arteta desperate to strengthen a number of areas within the squad.
Although the club is desperate to add a wave of new talent to the squad ahead of their Premier League opener against Brentford on August 13, the only new signing they have made so far is that of Benfica left-back Nuno Tavares, who sealed his switch to the Emirates Stadium last weekend.
However, it is understood that Anderlecht midfield ace Albert Sambi Lokonga is set to become the club’s latest addition, with his arrival expected to be announced anytime soon.
As well as being keen on him, Arsenal remain optimistic of signing Brighton & Hove Albion defender Ben White.
