Here is the latest transfer news from Arsenal as the club is reportedly among three teams monitoring an exciting teenage forward at EURO 2024.


Semih Kilicsoy

We begin with news from Turkey about Besiktas striker Semih Kilicsoy. According to Turkish outlet Sabah, scouts from Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, and Manchester City will be observing Kilicsoy during the European Championships. Turkey won their opening game against Georgia, with scouts from these three English clubs reportedly in attendance. HITC has noted that Arsenal and Manchester City are leading the race for the talented 18-year-old forward.


Youssouf Fofana

A report from The Athletic suggests that Arsenal is considering a move for a defensive midfielder to partner with Declan Rice. Ben Jacobs has mentioned that both Arsenal and AC Milan are interested in AS Monaco midfielder Youssouf Fofana. Fofana could be a relatively inexpensive acquisition for Arsenal, potentially costing just £15 million. He is capable of playing as a number six and could be a good fit for the team if they decide to pursue the transfer.


Joshua Zirkzee

Arsenal is also in the market for a striker following Benjamin Sesko’s decision to stay at RB Leipzig. One of the forwards they have shown interest in is Bologna’s Joshua Zirkzee. HITC reported that Arsenal, along with Manchester United and Liverpool, were keen on the Dutch forward. However, David Ornstein from The Athletic has stated that Manchester United is currently in advanced talks with Zirkzee’s camp. United is exploring a deal for the striker, who has a £34 million release clause, which would be a significant setback for Arsenal.


Bruno Guimaraes

The final name in this roundup is Newcastle United midfielder Bruno Guimaraes, who has been linked with a move to Arsenal. Guimaraes’ future at Newcastle is uncertain after the club failed to secure European football. HITC has reported that Manchester City is interested and willing to pay the £100 million release clause for the Brazilian. However, Arsenal is not prepared to meet this fee. Nonetheless, a report from Spanish outlet Sport claims that Guimaraes is enthusiastic about the idea of leaving Newcastle this summer, which could open the door for Arsenal to make a move.
