Hello and welcome along to football.london’s daily Arsenal news and transfer news live blog, keeping you posted with all the very latest news from the Emirates Stadium as it happens.
With the start of the new Premier League season now just five weeks away, the Gunners are in a race against time to get those all-important summer signings through the door so that they can familiarise themselves with their new surroundings ahead of the serious business getting under way.
Although the Gunners are yet to complete any new signings this summer, they are poised to be one of the Premier League’s busiest clubs, perhaps even the busiest.
It is understood that the deals to bring Benfica left-back Nuno Tavares and Anderlecht midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga to the Emirates Stadium are edging closer and closer to being completed, meaning those two are almost certain to become manager Mikel Arteta’s first new additions.
As well as hoping to land those two, the Gunners also hope to wrap up the signing of Brighton & Hove Albion centre-back Ben White.
