Arsenal transfer news
In this article, we’ll cover all today’s Arsenal transfer news.
Saliba’s ‘buy option’ confusion
William Saliba looks certain to be on his way out of the door from Arsenal with reports that he has picked to move to Marseille on loan next year.
William Saliba situation isn’t great but all involved accept he needs full season of regular & ideally Euro football. Not realistic at Arsenal but should be on loan (Marseille his choice). How it goes for 20yo + #AFC likely to dictate future @TheAthleticUK https://t.co/RemZlyyb5J

However there was some confusion over a report by French outlet L’Equipe whose report read that am ‘option to buy’ was included in the deal
Report below says Marseille should secure an option to buy Saliba. Re Guendouzi, permanent transfer to Marseille remains a possibility https://t.co/b29rzXeCEs

The report has since been adjusted with the ‘€10 million’ option removed from the report.
Matteo Guendouzi latest
The same report detailed Matteo Guendouzi’s loan move to Marseille and this is where the confusion appears to have stemmed from.
The €10 million buy option is in fact an obligatory purchase option in Guendouzi’s move to Marseille.
Guendouzi spent last season on loan with Hertha Berlin but they chose not to make the deal permanent.
Lucas Torreira departure closer
Lucas Torreira’s Uruguay were beaten on penalties by Colombia in the Copa America quarter-final.
This result eliminated them from the tournament and now Torreira will return to Arsenal.
It is expected that he will leave the club this summer with the likes of Lazio interested. With him now out of the tournament a possible deal is likely to happen sooner rather than later.
Thomas Partey is ‘very likely’ to wear the #5 shirt from next season.
The no.11 will also be among the squad numbers available with Lucas Torreira set to join Lazio.https://t.co/PCmYffZRwh

Sambi Lokonga joins Anderlecht training camp
One player who Arsenal fans have been expecting to be announced soon is Sambi Lokonga.

Mat Ryan unlikely to return
Mat Ryan joined Arsenal on loan from Brighton last January and played a number of games as backup to Bernd Leno.
Despite being in the market for a keeper once again it does not appear that the Australian will return to the Emirates.
He has been linked today with a move to Spain and Real Sociedad. Ryan previously played in La Liga with Valencia.
Mat Ryan is ‘very close’ to a shock Spain transfer!

Sam Johnstone targeted
Arsenal are now moving their attention to West Brom keeper Sam Johnstone according to the Daily Star.
The Gunners were looking at Aaron Ramsdale but Johnston is reportedly available for a cheaper fee.
