PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG has agreed a loan move to Barcelona, according to reports.

However, the former Arsenal captain will have to wait and see whether Barca can offload Ousmane Dembele in order for the move to go through.

Meanwhile the North Londoners have begun talks with Wolves over the signing of Ruben Neves, according to reports.

The Molineux club remain confident of keeping the midfielder, who they rate at £40million, and Manchester United are also keen to sign the 24-year-old.

It’s also being reported that the Gunners are battling with Newcastle for the signing of Dominic Calvert-Lewin from Everton.

And defender William Saliba is a shock target for Real Madrid, having enjoyed a successful loan spell with Marseille.

However, the former captain’s wages are believed to remain a sticking point for both clubs.

  • Spurs and Arsenal want Luiz

    Tottenham are reportedly set for a £32million battle with Arsenal over Aston Villa star Douglas Luiz.

    The Mail claims Antonio Conte is a big fan of the Brazilian midfielder, who has just 18 months left on his Villa contract.

    Arsenal are believed to be exploring a late deadline day swoop for Luiz, 23.

    But the Samba star, who has nine caps for his country, could end up at rivals Spurs instead.

  • Next up for Mikel Arteta

    Let’s take a look at Arsenal’s next five games…

  • Arthur Melo to Arsenal unlikely

    Tottenham’s signing of Juventus midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur means it is likely that Melo will remain where he is.

    Arsenal have been in talks with the midfielder throughout January and were hoping to finalise a deal in the final few days of the window.

    However, it is now unlikely that Juventus will let him leave on loan.

  • Arsenal ‘not close’ to any incomings

    According to The Athletic, Arsenal are not close to completing any deals ahead of transfer deadline day.

    There was lots of speculation yesterday about a potential move for Real Sociedad’s Alexander Isak after he was spotted in London, but there have been no official developments.

  • Barcelona ‘close to reaching an agreement’ with Aubameyang

    According to The Athletic, Barcelona are close to reaching an agreement with Arsenal which would see Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang join the club on loan until the end of the season.

    The main thing that could be an issue is the striker’s wages – Arsenal want Barcelona to cover as much as possible.

    There will be no loan fee.

  • Arteta keen for Nketiah to stay

    Earlier this month Mikel Arteta said: “I’ve already spoken about Eddie, how I feel about him, the intentions of the club.

    “He’s with us and every day he shows me that he wants to stay with us.”

    However, Crystal Palace and Newcastle are both keen on signing the young star.

  • Arsenal REJECT transfer offer for Eddie Nketiah

    The Gunners have rejected an offer from Crystal Palace, according to Sky Sports.

    The exclusion of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has left Mikel Arteta with few options in attack.

    Nketiah’s current contract expires in the summer, but Arsenal have made it clear that they do not wish to sell him.

  • Arthur Melo to Arsenal COULD still happen

    Arsenal have been heavily linked to the midfielder throughout January, but Juventus made it clear that they would not let go of him unless they had a suitable replacement lined-up.

    However, the Italian side are set to make a formal offer for Denis Zakaria, according to reports.

    The move could leave Melo free to join the Gunners.

  • Nou recruit for Barca?

    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has reportedly reached an agreement with Barcelona over a loan deal until the end of the season.

    Spanish reporter Gerard Romero tweeted: “Aubameyang enters if Ousmane leaves.

    “Barca has a closed economic agreement with the player, until June on loan. Conditions that can allow your arrival.

    “Arsenal needs the footballer to leave.”

    “When you’ve been out the game, you never know which way it will go, but it has convinced me that my playing career isn’t over.

    “The manager is top class, and I wouldn’t still be training with the first team if I was bringing the standard down or couldn’t keep up.
