Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma has reportedly told his agent he wants to join Arsenal this summer. Arsenal are in the market for a midfielder and Wolves star Ruben Neves has emerged as a target. Sheffield United’s Sander Berge has also been linked with the Gunners.

Granit Xhaka has been strongly linked with a move away from Arsenal after five seasons in north London.

New Roma boss Jose Mourinho wants to take Xhaka to the Serie A club.

Arsenal would need to replace the Switzerland international and have a number of options they are looking at.

Bissouma had a fine season at Brighton and is also a reported target of Liverpool.

Football.london claim the 24-year-old has instructed his agent Michael N’Cho that he wants to move to Arsenal.

However, Arsenal are yet to make an offer for Bissouma, who could be available for £30million.

Arsenal are also looking at Neves though and would unlikely sign both players.

The Times say Neves has been made available for transfer by the Wolves owners and the Gunners have ‘begun work’ to sign the Portugal international.

Neves has two years remaining on his Wolves contract and has been a key part of their success since promotion to the Premier League in 2018.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have seemingly missed out on the signing of Norwich City star Emi Buendia.

Buendia looks set to join Aston Villa for around £35m after Dean Smith’s side offered a better package than the Gunners.

Arsenal maintain a strong interest in bringing Martin Odegaard back to the club following his loan spell in the second half of last season.

Speaking in May, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta outlined his desire to keep Odegaard.

“We have a very clear and strong opinion on what we would like to do,” Arteta said.

“He’s not our player. We will have discussions in the next few weeks. And respect first of all because he’s a Real Madrid player, and we will have those communications.

“We’ve tried to make everything that we could to get Martin performing for the team, which I think he’s done.

“And he’s adapted really well to our way of playing and to our football club. And hopefully we have given him as well the hope and the feeling that it could be a good place for him.”
