Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Sandro Tonali £46m interest, Yeremy Pino £34m value, Tielemans deal ON as Torreira exits | The Sun

ARSENAL are still very interested in Youri Tielemans, according to reports.

It is stated that the Gunners will pursue the Leicester ace once a player has been sold.

However, it is not specified whether the sale of Lucas Torreira to Galatasaray, which has just been completed, will be sufficient or whether another player will also have to leave.

The North Londoners are also said to have made an enquiry for AC Milan's Sandro Tonali, who is reportedly available for around £46m.

Mikel Arteta has also reportedly received the go-ahead from owners the Kroenke family to sign France international Moussa Diaby.

The Bayer Leverkusen winger is said to be available for £60m, though it remains to be seen if the Gunners will push the boat out to that extent.

Moussa Diaby is not the only winger Arsenal are looking at, however.

The Gunners are said to be prepared to battle Liverpool for 19-year-old Yeremy Pino of Champions League semi-finalists Villarreal.

    "Well we know they went in for Raphinha, we don't know who they're going for, if they do bring in a new winger. It could depend on Pepe leaving the club."

    Ferdinands Oleks the look of Zinchenko

    Rio Ferdinand has hailed Oleksandr Zinchenko as a "great addition" and reckons Mikel Arteta will use him like Pep Guardiola uses Joao Cancelo.

    Cancelo is employed both at full-back and a midfield playmaker for Manchester City.

    Speaking on his YouTube channel, Ferdinand said on Zinchenko: "He’s a great addition.

    "I think a lot of coaches don’t look at the negatives now. They look at what he brings. Yeah they see the negativity but they’re more about what does he bring?

    "What does he bring that’s going to enhance us with the ball and I think Zinchenko, does far more good for them than bad.

    "I think, even his positions, when they’ve got the ball.

    "I don’t think Arteta really wants him to play as a left-back. I think he wants to play him like a Cancelo-type player, like he did in pre-season."

    Gift of the Gab

    Gabriel Jesus may not have scored on his competitive Arsenal debut, but the summer signing still did enough to catch the eye of Rio Ferdinand.

    The Manchester United described the Brazilian forward as a "joke" following his impressive display.

    But he still picked out where in Jesus' game there is room for improvement.

    Ferdinand told his YouTube channel: "Jesus was a joke, Jesus was unreal first-half. I still want him to be much more of a number nine though.

    "I don’t want him to keep coming back to the play."

    Ferdinand verdict on Odegaard captaincy

    Rio Ferdinand has suggested the Arsenal captaincy could result in a "different" Martin Odegaard this campaign.

    The playmaker wore the armband last season when Alexandre Lacazette didn't play after Pierre Emerick Aubameyang's departure.

    He was named as permanent captain over the summer, but the Manchester United legend said it could actually have a negative impact on Odegaard.

    That's despite the midfielder also captaining Norway.

    Ferdinand said on his YouTube channel: “I said that in the group (that the armband weighs heavy). It could be a different Odegaard this year.”

    He said, via Football365: "Mikel and Edu have got to take a lot of credit for what they’ve done with this guy.

    "This guy is someone we’ve always thought would be special. Even when they sent him out on loan there were fans calling for him to come back.

    "He’s a full international now, he looks composed, calm, he’s got great pace.

    "It’s a decision that was magnificent from Arsenal. It would have been easy to bring him back last year but they gave him the extra season and now he looks like he’s been playing in that position for years."

    Carra gives Gunners verdict

    The Scotland star missed the run-in last season with a serious knee injury.

    But Carragher reckons Mikel Arteta is now short in the position, despite the signing of Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City.

    Gunners eye Tielemans alternative

    Lens midfielder Seko Fofana is being considered as an alternative to Youri Tielemans, according to reports.

    Arsenal are keen on a move for the Leicester midfielder, but the Foxes are keen to keep the Belgian international.

    And the Gunners could instead turn their attention to Fofana, according to the Mirror.

    Lens have slapped a £40million price-tag on the midfielder, who is also attracting interest from AC Milan.

    But Fofana recently hinted that he could leave the French club, saying: "I’m officially here. After that, anything is possible. I want to have fun and take everything I can take.

    "We are in a market period in which there is a lot of reflection. You can tell yourself that you will stay or that you will leave, you don’t really know."

    Take a leaf out of his Brooke

    The 18-year-old has agreed terms on a new deal with the Gunners.

    And Norton-Cuffy named Bukayo Saka as someone who always makes time to talk to the youngsters, having progressed from the academy himself.

    Norton-Cuffy told Scouted Football: "When you see players who have come all the way through Hale End, it definitely gives you added motivation because you can see yourself in that position.

    "Someone like Bukayo (Saka) especially, he’ll come and talk to you, he’ll always make you feel like you’re on the same level. 

    "It’s eye opening to see that pathway but all the guys who have made it, they have sacrificed a lot and it’s not easy."

    "I believe in this team and it was very good. We got a clean sheet and three very good points."

    Jesus should net 20 goals

    Gabriel Jesus should be targeting a minimum of 20 goals this season, according to one former Arsenal ace.

    Mikael Silvestre believes that the forward can blossom under Mikel Arteta, and form a beneficial partnership with his compatriot Gabriel Martinelli.

    In conversation with bettingexpert, Silvestre said: "I think [Gabriel Jesus] should score in the twenties; 20 goals should be his minimum mark this season.

    "It’s an interesting one. A lot of the time he is outside of the box, drifting left and right. A lot of the time on the right, but he ends up scoring a lot of goals in the box.

    "I think that’s what Arsenal needed with the Aubameyang situation, and Lacazette leaving as well. It’s an excellent signing.

    "His energy and the dynamic with Martinelli with them speaking the same language. He’s going to have a big impact if he stays fit because he’s also someone who doesn’t shy away from challenges."
