Arsenal transfer news and rumours live: Ceballos decision, Thiago ‘talks’, £26m Bellerin exit

Hello and welcome to the Arsenal transfer blog.

The Gunners are back in action this afternoon when they face Liverpool in the Community Shield Wembley Stadium.

Off the pitch, Mikel Arteta’s side have made one signing thus far with Willian joining on a free transfer but are pushing to complete several more deals before the 2020/21 Premier League campaign gets underway.

Defender Gabriel Magalhaes thought to be closing in on a move from Lille, while Bayern Munich’s Thiago, Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey and Barcelona’s Philippe Coutinho have also been linked in recent weeks.

There’s also news of some potential outgoings with the likes of Emiliano Martinez, Hector Bellerin, Sead Kolasinac, Lucas Torreira and Rob Holding all possible candidates to leave.

In addition, yesterday it was confirmed that wonderkid Sam Greenwood has joined newboys Leeds United with Arsenal receiving a fee of around £1.5 million, although add-ons could take the fee up to £3 million.
