Gabriel jets in

Lille defender Gabriel Magalhaes has flown to England to complete his long-awaited move to Arsenal.

The Gunners have been involved in a lengthy pursuit of the 22-year-old this summer, fending off the likes of Napoli, Manchester United and Everton to land the defender in a reported £27 million deal.

Excited fans tracked the Brazilian's flight from Lille to London Luton Airport on Monday morning, and Gabriel is expected to visit Arsenal's London Colney training base this afternoon.

Arsenal face Ceballos competition

Arsenal are keen to bring Real Madrid's Dani Ceballos back to the Emirates, but they could face competition from AC Milan.

According to The Telegraph, the Italian giants are hoping to take advantage of the upheaval caused by Raul Sanllehi's departure and steal a march on the Gunners.

Mikel Arteta is desperate to bring Ceballos back to north London after his impressive loan spell last season, with the club eyeing another temporary switch for the Spaniard.

Gunners set to battle Barca for Sarr

Arsenal are locked in a battle with Barcelona to sign free agent defender Malang Sarr, according to The Daily Mail.

The 21-year-old Frenchman has attracted plenty of interest from across Europe after running down his contract at Ligue 1 side Nice, with the Gunners determined to beat Barca to his signature and bolster their defence.

Serie A trio Atalanta, Torino and Fiorentina are also monitoring the situation closely.

Arsenal line up shock loan for West Ham star

With the Gunners already having signed Willian and captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang set to sign a new deal, a move for Anderson seems unlikely.
