Arsenal transfer news and rumours live: Gunners dealt Houssem Aouar setback, Torreira deal nears

Arsenal have just days to wrap up their transfer business ahead of Monday’s deadline.

Mikel Arteta is still working away in an attempt to strengthen his midfield but so far, he has come up short.

Atletico Madrid star Thomas Partey looks to be out of reach, while Houssem Aouar has come into sharp focus in recent weeks.

Though, Arsenal have failed to submit a bid good enough to impress Lyon who say Aouar will not be available unless a deal is reached by today.

And what’s more, last season’s Champions League finalists PSG are said to have held talks with Lyon over a move for Aouar at the 11th hour.

Arsenal have lots of work to do and very little time in the race to land Aouar, and if their bid fails, they will be well and truly up against it with the deadline on Monday.

Meanwhile, we could yet see a number of exits from the Emirates Stadium with the likes of Lucas Torreira, Matteo Guendouzi and Saed Kolasinac all linked with exits.
