Good morning Arsenal fans
Arsenal are monitoring Lille midfielder Renato Sanches, but they’re yet to make an approach for the player, according to reports.
La Voix du Nord report that Arsenal are one of a few major European clubs tracking Renato Sanches at the moment, along with the likes of AC Milan and Juventus.
Meanwhile, Fiorentina are reportedly ‘desperate’ to keep hold of Arsenal transfer target Dusan Vlahovic until the end of the season.
The Gunners are rumoured to be eager to land Vlahovic in this month’s transfer window so the striker can help fire them into Europe next season.
But Fiorentina want to keep hold of the Serbian hitman for the same reason, Football London report.
Mikel Arteta’s side are also interested in taking Juventus midfielder Arthur Melo on loan, according to reports.
The 25-year-old Brazilian is on a shortlist of three, according to trusted Italian sports journalist Fabrizio Romano.
But despite the Gunners’ interest they have not yet contacted the Serie A giants about Melo, says Romano.
And finally, Gunners starlet Folarin Balogun will join Middlesbrough on loan today, reports claim.
According to Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, terms and clauses have all been agreed between Arsenal and Boro.
He adds that Balogun will undergo his medical tomorrow.
And when this formality is completed, the 20-year-old will be announced as a Middlesbrough player.
