    GOOD MORNING GUNNERS FANS

    Arsenal are keen on signing Lazio forward Joaquin Correa, according to reports.

    Sky Italy are saying that Arsenal have requested information on the Argentine.

    In the report, it states that Lazio have interest in one of Arsenal's players, Lucas Torreira.

    And the Uruguayan midfielder could help sweeten the deal to tempt the Rome-based club.

    Meanwhile, Real Sociedad are negotiating with Borussia Dortmund to remove a £26m buy-back clause for Arsenal target Alexander Isak.

    Sociedad bought Isak from Dortmund back in 2019, with the Bundesliga giants including a £26m buy-back clause.

    According to Sport1, the two clubs are now in negotiations to remove the clause.

    Isak, 21, has three years remaining on his deal in Spain, with Sociedad hoping to reward his form with a new contract.

    The Basque side are expected to pay around £5m to remove Dortmund's clause.

    Finally, Brighton defender Ben White is keen to join Arsenal this summer, according to reports.

    Football Insider have also revealed that the 23-year-old has already begun house hunting in the expectation that the move will go through.

    Arsenal are ready to launch another attempt to sign Lyon’s Houssem Aouar.

    The Gunners were priced out of a move for the 22-year-old Frenchman last summer – with Lyon demanding up to £55m.

    And SunSport understands that Arsenal are readying a contract worth £100k-a-week to lure the midfielder to the Emirates at the second time of asking.
