In terms of Arsenal transfer latest, there isn’t much going on in North London at the moment.

The Gunners have spent more money than anyone else in the Premier League this summer, following an outlay of around £120 million across five players.

However, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has admitted recently that he remains active in the market if the right player is available.

One more addition could really strengthen the North Londoners’ hopes of qualifying for the Champions League come the end of the season.

But is two more signings possible? Well, according to David Ornstein of The Athletic, potentially.

Ornstein has revealed that Arsenal remain interested in signing a winger, something that could hinge on whether Nicholas Pepe leaves the club or not.

But the journalist also added that midfielder Youri Tielemans of Leicester City is still a target, even if there’s ‘no movement’ on that front yet.

Ornstein told NBC Sport today: “They want to do more business, I think they want to add a winger to what they’ve got and if they manage to get somebody in, I think they’ll be pretty happy. Everyone will be asking, ‘Who is that winger?’. Well, we know they went in for Raphinha. I don’t know who they’re going to go [for], if they do bring in a new winger. It could depend on Pepe leaving the club.

“Youri Tielemans is a player Arsenal like. Leicester City would sell with only a year to go on his contract, but there’s no movement on that one yet and I think Arsenal would need to let someone go if they’re to bring someone in.”

Who is the winger?

Whisper it, but Cody Gakpo seems a realistic candidate.

Despite the trail going relatively cold, Ryan Taylor of The Express revealed on Saturday that the £40 million-rated PSV Eindhoven wide man is still on Arteta and Edu’s radar, so it would appear to be a case of watch this space for now.
