Arsenal transfer rumours: Three players to be sold to fund Houssem Aouar deal

Arsenal have less than a week now to finalise deals with clubs from abroad in the current transfer window.

Clubs have until 11pm on Monday, October 5 to add to their squads before the window slams shut for 2020.

The Gunners are still looking to strengthen, with central midfield a key area for Mikel Arteta’s side.

Transfers could go down to the wire with clubs looking to get the best possible deals.

Here are the latest Arsenal transfer rumours for Wednesday morning.

Duo to depart

Respected Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano says Arsenal are willing to sell both Lucas Torreira and Sead Kolasinac before the end of the transfer window next Monday.

Both players have been linked with departures this summer having fallen down the pecking order at the Emirates.

Fabrizio says that the Gunners are ‘working to sell’ midfielder Torreira to Spanish giants Atletico Madrid.

Defender Kolasinac, meanwhile appears to be heading to Bayern Leverkusen in the Bundesliga.

It is hoped should these deals go through, this would then provide Mikel Arteta with the funds to secure a deal for Lyon’s Houssem Aouar.

Guendouzi to leave

French midfielder Matteo Guendouzi could be leaving Arsenal at some point over the next 12 months.

That’s according to David Ornstein from The Athletic, who reckons the player could be earmarked for a move in January or next summer if he remains at Arsenal before the end of the current transfer window.

Guendouzi has fallen out of favour at the Gunners after a bust-up in the game at Brighton at the end of last season.

Ornstein says there has been interested in the midfielder from various clubs this summer, but none have followed it up with concrete offers.

He added (via The Express): “If that was to change before the window closes, it might be deemed desirable for all parties that he moves on.
