Here is a roundup of the top Arsenal fc news and gossip that we think you guys may have missed today –

Arsenal have reportedly made an offer to Sporting Lisbon for in-demand defender Ousmane DIomande

Over the last few seasons – Mikel Arteta has got this ARSENAL side from challenging for a top six side into challenging for that Premier League title – something that nobody could have predicted.

There is still a lot of speculation surrounding the players that Arteta will look to sign during the summer window, especially with the rumours that Gabriel is a man that could depart the club at the end of the season.

That has led to some rumours in the media which have claimed that ARSENAL tried to get a transfer deal done for Diomande in the last few days of the last Summer window, but a €35million (£30m) bid rejected.

Diomande, who has an €80m release clause, quickly became a regular in the Sporting defence following his arrival at the start of the year, making his European debut against the Gunners in the Europa League.

The Gunners’ manager Mikel Arteta is keen to bolster his defence at the end of the season and Diomande, 20, has stood out in his eyes after some impressive performances in Portugal.

At the beginning it was Chelsea that led the transfer chase with an offer of €60million (£51m), plus bonuses, but according to Record, however, Arsenal have matched their rivals’ bid for the Ivory Coast international.

Reporter Iomie Stanley has said that he could be a very good signing for the club – he is a unit – he told icfootballnews: ‘Diomande has been very impressive this season and it would be interesting to see if he could handle the pressure of playing for one of the big clubs in the Premier League.

‘And the fact that he would add depth to the squad for not a lot of money, it could be a great buy from that Arsenal board and could be a player that adds some more quality to that Gunners squad.

‘£70 million is alot of money for the lad – but he is a real unit and sombody that would add more quality to that side.’



The news will alert the likes of ARSENAL – as they have long admired the German star and will be looking to add some experience to the side at the end of the season.

Kimmich is one of the best midfielders in the world and a man that Bayern fans will not want to see depart the club in the next transfer window – so this news will come as a shock to the system.

ARSENAL have been doing some very good business over the past couple of transfer windows  -but if they are able to get a deal done for this man – he would be a great signing.

He is proven at the highest level of the game – is a proven winner – can play in numerous positions and is a leader on the pitch – he could be a real bargain for the club that is for sure.

But there are quite a few clubs interested – so it will be interesting to see where he ends up if he does move.


If Barcelona cannot afford to sign Manchester City’s Joao Cancelo on a long-term contract, Arsenal is allegedly prepared to make a summer raid for the full-back.

Cancelo has a contract with Man City through June 2027, but after losing favour with Pep Guardiola, it appears that he will not be playing at the Etihad Stadium in the future and is seeking a more permanent move away from the club.



Cancelo has openly stated his desire to join Barcelona permanently, and Man City is reportedly willing to let him go this summer. The Sun claims that Barca’s financial issues prevent them from agreeing to pay Man City’s £40 million asking price for Cancelo, which has opened the door for ARSENAL to try and get  a deal done.

Arteta and Cancelo worked together for a few months at Man City before the Spaniard left to take charge of Arsenal.

And if you believe the words of Reporter Iomie Stanley – he could be a very good addition to that Arsenal side.


‘Man City now feel that ARSENAL will be serious title contenders for next season and will not want to sell anymore players to Mikel Arteta that they believe would improve the squad.

‘Cancelo is a brilliant star that would be a great signing for the Gunners and that is why Man City will not allow him to move to London unless it is for crazy money that the defender is no longer worth.

‘He would be a player that Arteta would love to add to the squad – and a man that would further improve that Gunners squad – Arsenal have spent some serious money over the last few windows – he could be the icing on top of the cake.’
