Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Zinchenko set to join THIS WEEK, Arthur Melo in talks, Leroy Sane interest

Morning, Arsenal fans

Juventus superstar Arthur Melo is back on the radar but Arsenal might face competition from Manchester United for Youri Tielmans.

Central midfield remains a transfer priority for Gunners’ boss Mikel Arteta.

That’s despite a dominant 2-0 friendly win against Everton.

Impressive new striker Gabriel Jesus made it three goals in two games and Bukayo Saka sealed victory in Baltimore Maryland.

It’s thought Arteta is ready to come in again for Brazil ace Melo, a target last January.

But it’s now claimed new United chief Erik ten Hag is a huge admirer of Arsenal’s dream option – Leicester hero Tielemans.

At least the £30million deal for Manchester City left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko is all but over the line.

And Arteta boosted William Saliba by insisting the Frenchman who has been loaned out three times was now “in my plans”.

The Spaniard added: “We are all excited to watch him. He’s a proper talent who showed what he can do at Marseille.”

Saliba’s fellow centre-back Pablo Mari has emerged as a target for Fenerbahce.

And Arsenal are said to value second-choice keeper Bernd Leno at £15m – after Fulham reportedly wanted the German for £10m last week.
