Arsenal Transfer News: Mahrez, Mustafi & Lacazette

As is the case every summer, Arsenal have been linked with the signing of many players. Unfortunately, with just about one month left until the close of the transfer window, Granit Xhaka remains Arsenal's only real signing of note.

In the last few days, there have, however, been rumours linking Arsenal to a couple of players, and what makes it good news for Arsenal fans are these rumours are quite believable. The Loose Cannon is about to bring you a round-up of the three most likely Arsenal signings before September 3rd.

Mahrez - Claudio Ranieri has maintained his stance that he believes the Algerian will be playing for Leicester City next season, amidst interest from both Arsenal, Chelsea and PSG. However, according to reports, the Algerian is ready to leave Leicester this summer and has rejected the Foxes' offer of a new contract. Arsenal are reportedly the most likely club to sign the Algerian. According to earlier reports, the Algerian has agreed personal terms with Arsenal, but a fee has not yet been agreed between both clubs.

Alexandre Lacazette - That Arsenal need to sign a striker this summer is a fact that virtually all football fans agree to. And judging by reports, there is a real chance that the France international could be playing in Arsenal's colours before the end of the transfer window on September 3rd. Arsenal have had an initial €35m bid rejected by Lyon, but reports claim Wenger hasn't given up and will go back to Lyon with another bid.

Mustafi - With Per Mertesacker injured and reportedly out for five months, Arsenal could do with the signing of yet another centre back. According to Sky Germany, Arsenal are very keen on signing the highly-rated Germany and have opened talks with Valencia. The Telegraph reckons Mustafi is also keen to play under Wenger and is open to moving to Arsenal before the transfer window closes. Reports claim Valencia are looking for €30 million plus €8 million in add-ons.
