There have been quite a few transfer rumours today focussing on the Arsenal defence, both incoming and outgoings, according to a variety of media outlets.
We have already covered a couple of the rumours today,Kieran TierneyandDayot Upamecanoand I could easily have written another three articles on different rumours circulating in the media throughout the day.
Basically, this is what I have read about today.
Arsenal are going to make a concerted effort to get this deal done this week according toSky Sports
According to German tabloidBILD, Arsenal have tabled a bid of £55 Million but have been told by the players club Leipzig that he will cost £70 Million.
The Mirroris claiming that Arsenal will be making a fresh attempt to loan the Juventus centre half before the transfer window closes.
Guardian journalist Daniel Taylor has taken toTwitterand tweeted that talks are underway between Arsenal and Nottingham Forest over a potential transfer.
I am sure there is more elsewhere but that is what I have come across so far and what it is telling me is that while some of these are pure speculation or even just clickbait there is a pattern developing and that is Arsenal are looking to overhaul the defence before the transfer window closes.
Going to be an exciting few days ahead.
