Willian's move all but done

Aubameyang is set to sign a new deal

  • The Gunners 'believe' they are on the verge of tying down the striker as they're prepared to hand him a new 3-year deal worth in excess of £250k per week.
  • The Gabonese will stand among the highest ever Arsenal earners if he signs the deal.
  • The manager earlier said that he's convinced that the 31-year-old would eventually commit to fresh terms.

Arteta could get £100m to sign his transfer targets

Gabriel is edging closer to Arsenal?

  • According to French outlet La Voix du Nord, the Lille centre-back wants to join Arsenal 'as quickly as possible'.
  • It seems the exit is imminent, as the 22-year-old was dropped from Lille's matchday squad against AZ Alkmaar and the Ligue 1 side removed his shirt from the club's website.
  • The rumours have been further boosted after Gabriel's brother was spotted wearing an Arsenal shirt and Pepe's on-line exchange with his former teammate.

Coutinho's transfer is still on the cards

  • According to Diario Sport, a Catalonia-based source, Phillippe Coutinho's move to the Emirates is gradually taking shape with Kia Joorabchian willing to take his client to north London.
  • Matt Law of the Telegraph has reported that Willian's expected arrival is likely to put an end to our pursuit of the 28-year-old.
  • However, Sport insists the attacking midfielder could still move to the Emirates as he's asked Barcelona to postpone any transfer talks until the Champions League season is over.
  • As per the Gooner Fanzine, Coutinho and his representatives were at London Colney on Friday to discuss a possible move.
