Get all the latest news and transfer gossip from North London here…

  • RAM-GO

    Aaron Ramsey is facing the boot from Juventus as new boss Andrea Pirlo plots a massive summer clearout.

    The former Arsenal star, 29, has struggled to make an impact since moving to Turin on a free transfer last July.

    Despite pocketing a reported £400,000 a week, the Welshman managed just 24 Serie A appearances and three goals under Maurizio Sarri.

    And following the former Chelsea boss’s sacking on Saturday, new manager Pirlo is ready to move the midfielder on, the Daily Mail claims.

    Ramsey, who has been hit by injuries, has been linked with an early exit from the Allianz Stadium for a large part of this season.

    That includes a move back to the Premier League in a swap deal for Manchester United’s Paul Pogba.

  • PSG IN FOR GUEN

    Arsenal will demand £40million for Matteo Guendouzi after Paris Saint-Germain reportedly entered the race for the midfielder.

    The fiery Frenchman has been training away from the Gunners first-team after a falling out with boss Mikel Arteta last month.

    The 21-year-old infuriated his manager after he was embroiled in a scuffle with Neal Maupay following the club's 2-1 defeat to Brighton on June 20.

    The pair reportedly clashed again in a mid-season training camp in Dubai and Guendouzi seems set to leave this summer.

    According to Football London, Arsenal have set a £40m price-tag on the French ace after PSG joined the race for his signature.

  • MAG YOUR MIND UP

    Manchester United and Arsenal are in a transfer battle for Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes, according to reports.

    And the Brazilian will reportedly make a final decision on his future later this week.

    Both teams have been linked with the 22-year-old for months.

    And the centre-back will decide between the two Premier League giants and Everton and Napoli, according French outlet L’Equipe.

    Whichever club gets the nod will reportedly have to pay £27million plus add-ons.

    The Brazilian defender looks almost certain to leave the Ligue 1 side this summer and is said to have been particularly impressed by talks with the Gunners last week.

  • 'REIR SIGNING

    Arsenal will have to fork out “something close” to £27m for transfer target Danilo Pereira.

    Gunners boss Mikel Arteta has target a move for the Porto midfielder this summer transfer window.

    Portuguese news outlet O Jogo report that Pereira will be available to leave.

    However, Porto have not yet received an offer for the star that meets their valuation yet.

    Various reports have stated Arsenal are only willing to spend around £18m on him, but according to the latest speculation, that sum would be instantly rejected.

    Porto rejected a bid of £27m for the 28-year-old Portugal international last year.

  • HAIR TO STAY

    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has given Arsenal fans a hair-raising hint that he'll be sticking around in North London – by dying his barnet red and white.

    The Gunners' skipper banged in 29 goals in 44 matches in the 2019-20 season, providing a key presence for Mikel Arteta's new-look team.

    But having entered the final year of his contract, there has been much speculation that Aubameyang, 31, could part ways with Arsenal this summer.

    The Gabonese star appears to be as enamoured with the Gunners as they are with him, however, as he donned the red and white jersey on holiday – as well as sporting his newly-dyed hair.

    Aubameyang decided to throw a party in Italy, in order to celebrate Arsenal's FA Cup triumph.

  • GOOD MORNING GUNNERS FANS

    Willian is on the brink of joining Arsenal after undergoing his medical, according to reports.

    The Brazilian is braced to join Chelsea's London rivals on a three-year deal after announcing his departure from Stamford Bridge.

    And The Standard claims a free transfer is close after Willian agreed to wages of £100,000-a-week with the FA Cup winners.

    Meanwhile, Arsenal have reportedly offered Atletico Madrid their pick of three players as part of a swap deal for Thomas Partey.

    The 27-year-old has emerged as a top target for Mikel Arteta, but the Gunners boss is not prepared to meet his £45million release clause.

    Instead, Arsenal could include Alexandre Lacazette, Hector Bellerin or Lucas Torreira as part of the deal.

    But according to Spanish football journalist Kike Marin, Atletico want the release clause paid in full.

    Finally, Arsenal fans are getting excited after transfer target Gabriel Magalhaes's brother and sister started following the club on Instagram.

    The Gunners have been linked with a £27m swoop for the Lille defender.

    Boss Arteta, who guided the side to FA Cup glory this season, is set to make further changes to his playing staff.

    The Spaniard is keen on bringing a defender in to shore up his leaky back line.

    Now it has been revealed on social media that the 22-year-old's sister Mayara follows the London side on Instagram.

  • FROM THE HART

    John Hartson has urged Celtic to demand at least £40million if Arsenal come looking for star striker Odsonne Edouard.

    He said: “The manager and board want him to stay, but the club have been known to sell players when the right offer comes in.

    “What would you price him at now? £40million?

    “Moussa Dembele went for £20m and Chelsea were looking to pay £70m for him.

    “Why would Celtic let Edouard go cheap? If you are going to sell him you need to get top dollar for him.”

  • PARTEY HARD

    Atletico Madrid have reportedly snubbed a swap proposal from Arsenal for Thomas Partey.

    Spanish journalist Kike Marin claims the Gunners have offered Atleti their choice of Lucas Torreira, Hector Bellerin or Alexandre Lacazette in exchange for the midfielder.

  • LET THE SON SHINE

    Marseille ace Morgan Sanson is a reported target for Arsenal.

    Le10Sport claims the midfielder could arrive as a replacement for Matteo Guendouzi this summer.

    But the Gunners will have to battle Spurs and West Ham for his signature.

  • PIRLS OF WISDOM

    Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo has reportedly highlighted Real Madrid target Isco as a key target after replacing Maurizio Sarri in Turin.

    According to SportMediaset, Real could offer Isco or Toni Kroos to Juve in exchange for Paulo Dybala.

    In addition to offering one of the midfielders, it has been said that Madrid are also prepared to hand over £89.9million.

    Isco has long been linked with a Premier League switch following interest from Man Utd, Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal in the past.

    Arsenal legend Robert Pires has hailed tough diamonds John Terry and Rio Ferdinand as his hardest Premier League opponents.
