Maitland-Niles set for Wolves move

Wolves are in advanced talks to sign Arsenal's Ainsley Maitland-Niles, according to Sky Sports.

The 22-year-old looks set to be a casualty of the club's attempts to raise transfer funds this summer and is now closing in on a move to Molineux.

A fee still needs to be agreed between the two clubs, but Maitland-Niles looks set to sign a four-year deal with Nuno Espirito Santo's side, ending his 16-year spell with the Gunners.

Gabriel completes his medical

Gabriel Magalhaes is one step closer to becoming an Arsenal player after completing his medical yesterday.

The Brazilian flew from Lille to England yesterday and underwent all the necessary checks at the club's London Colney training base.

The Gunners are expected to confirm his £27 million arrival in the coming days, with the 22-year-old signing on a five-year deal.

Arteta eyes Bayern star Thiago

Reports in France claim Arsenal are eyeing a move for Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara this summer.

The Spaniard played a key role as the Bavarian giants won the treble this season, but he could be moved on this summer with just a year left on his contract.

According to reports, Mikel Arteta spoke with Thiago in a bid to convince him to move to the Emirates as the Arsenal boss looks to add quality in the middle of the park.

Bayern would be willing to sell the 29-year-old for around £30 million, with Liverpool also holding an interest.

Arsenal set to miss out on Partey

Arsenal have withdrawn their interest in Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey, according to Spanish outlet Sport.

Partey was the club's number one target this summer, but the Gunners have been frustrated in their efforts to bring him to the Emirates, with Atleti rejecting two bids and demanding his £45 million release clause is paid.

Arsenal seem unwilling to match that figure and have seemingly stepped back from any deal, although it could be revived if enough money is raised from player sales.

    I've not seen - and will not be watching - the new documentary about the cockerel jockeys, but there is a pricelessly funny review in today's guardian. Mourinho on arriving in n17 promises to transform the players into a "bunch of c#nts". We'll pardon me but I think there's a compelling case for saying that every single one of the multitudes of spud managers since Bill Nicholson and beyond succeeded in doing that prior to the special one...Also helps to explain why Chelsea and Manure have more pleasant teams and less toxic atmospheres now than they did under the portugeezer. I think this so called show will provide hours of entertainment to the millions of dislikers of Tottingham around the globe.
