Arsenal news and transfer rumours live: Mesut Ozil offer, Houssem Aouar blow, Nuno Mendes linked

Hello and welcome to ’s Arsenal live blog.

We are now into the second week of the international break, with the Gunners back in Premier League action this weekend.

It’s a tough trip to Manchester City on Saturday evening for Mikel Arteta’s side – with Thomas Partey potentially making his debut for his new club.

Arsenal secured the dramatic late signing of Partey on deadline day last week, with the Gunners continuing to be linked with even more players.

The international window may be shut, but it appears that Arteta and co are already searching for players to potentially add to the squad in January.
