Arsenal is considering a deal for Eintracht Frankfurt midfielder Djibril Sow this summer to further strengthen their squad. Despite already securing three new signings, totaling around £200m, including a club record fee for Declan Rice, the Gunners remain active in the market, as reported by Calciomercato.
The 26-year-old midfielder has drawn interest from Lazio after impressing in Germany, but Arsenal is reportedly pursuing the move aggressively. However, Sevilla is also reportedly in contention for Sow’s signature, and as per Calciomercato’s report, the player is yet to make a decision regarding his future.
Arsenal and Brentford are currently in discussions regarding a potential move for goalkeeper David Raya. The Spaniard has been linked with a departure from the Gtech Community Stadium this summer, with Bayern Munich considered a top destination. However, the situation changed when both Raya and Brentford turned down a loan offer from the Bundesliga side.
This turn of events has allowed Arsenal to express interest, and the Gunners are reportedly eager to sign the goalkeeper. Romano reports that Arsenal has already made contact with Raya’s agent, and the two parties are currently negotiating personal terms. Simultaneously, the clubs are engaged in talks over the transfer fee, with Brentford seeking around £40m for the 27-year-old shot-stopper.
Football Transfers reports that Arsenal is contemplating a move for Napoli star Khvicha Kvaratskhelia this summer, with a potential boost coming from their sporting director’s existing relationship. The reigning Serie A champions hired Mauro Meluso earlier this summer and he has a good relationship with Arsenal, after Meluso recommended Jakob Kiwior to the club.
This favorable connection could pave the way for a possible acquisition of the Georgian attacker. However, Football Transfers notes that securing Kvaratskhelia’s services won’t be easy. Napoli is determined to retain their forward, and parting with their star player would require a potentially record-breaking bid from Arsenal.
