Gabriel trains with Arsenal ahead of new season

Arsenal begin their Premier League campaign but they also remain active in the transfer market with Mikel Arteta eager to add reinforcements and build on his incredible momentum.

Brazilian centre-back Gabriel Magalhaes is the most eye-catching arrival so far joining from Lille in a £27million deal. Fellow countryman Willian has joined him too with Dani Ceballos returning on a second season-long loan from Real Madrid.

Arteta is keen for more new faces as he continues to build a new squad, however. A new midfielder is a priority with Houssem Aouar of Lyon and Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey the primary options. Any further spend is likely to require sales though with right-back Hector Bellerin the likeliest to leave. PSG were interested in a loan but have moved on with the Gunners only after a permanent sale. Goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez will leave, however, with Aston Villa set to seal a deal for him to be their new No 1. Sokratis and Lucas Torreira have both been linked with Serie A and are expected to leave before the deadline. We will have all of the latest for you throughout the day:

BURNLEY BUNDESLIGA BID

Sean Dyche is looking for new recruits and the Mail report they’ll bid £8m for Robert Quaison.

The Swede plays for Mainz in the German Bundesliga and he has a £14m release clause, but the Clarets hope to land him for a lower fee.

Quaison can play in behind the striker or down the wings.

SPURS TARGET BENFICA STRIKER

We’re constantly told Spurs want another forward, an alternative to Harry Kane, but finding a successful second in command has proven tricky.

TVI24 in Portugal say that the north London club now want Carlos Vinicius, the 25-year-old striker for Benfica.

They say two other Premier League clubs have also enquired, but he wants to be a starter.

UNITED BOARD SANCTION £23M BID

Benoit Badiashile is on Manchester United’s wishlist for summer and L’Equipe say the Monaco defender could be on the move.

United’s board have sanctioned the £23m asking price, they report, and a move could occur before the window shuts.

Bayer Leverkusen are also keen on him, but United could move quickest if Smalling completes his move to Italy.

VILLA BID FOR LYON STRIKER REJECTED

Aston Villa have offered £16 million for Lyon forward Bertrand Traore, according to reports in France.

FootMercato say the bid was rejected by the Ligue 1 side, as they want more for the versatile performer.

Traore is not a starter under Rudi Garcia, who has opted for all of Karl Toko Ekambi, Memphis Depay and Moussa Dembele in the lineup ahead of him.

Lyon want £23m, says the report.
