Arsenal close in on double signing to bolster back division

SportBild (h/t Sport Witness) have reported the Gunners will have to pay as much as €25 million (£22 million) to get a deal done for Leno and that "things can go quickly" on this transfer.

Paris Saint-Germain's last-ditch attempt to prevent youth academy graduate Yacine Adli from signing a professional contract with Arsenal has succeeded, with the 17-year-old now set to pen senior terms with his formative club, a source close to PSG has revealed to ESPN FC.

He is noted to be comfortable both with and without the ball, and is able to chip in at both ends of the pitch - earning plaudits in Serie A this year both defensively for his tackling and chasing and offensively for his passing and movement.


"We played Sampdoria once", Suarez told Uruguayan publication Telemundo earlier this season, via the Metro. He earned his first senior worldwide cap for Uruguay in March 2018. The Uruguay global has a €25m (£22m) release clause in his deal with the Serie A club and while the transfer fee is not likely to become a sticking point, the Gunners still need to reach an agreement with the player's representatives.

News of the midfielder's possible arrival at the Emirates has clearly excited Arsenal fans, as Emery continues to strengthen the Gunners team ahead of next season.

Sokratis will become the second defender signed by Arsenal so far this summer after right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner joined from Juventus on a free transfer.
