Kvaratskhelia confirms Arsenal transfer stance as Alexis Sanchez plays key role

Arsenal have just under a month left to conduct any more transfer business they desire.

The Gunners spent heavily earlier in the window as they secured the signings of Declan Rice, Kai Havertz and Jurrien Timber. There could well be even more signings as Mikel Arteta attempts to prepare his side for their Champions League return this season.

Focus could turn to sales, too, with a host of players linked with exits before the window slams shut early next month. Take a look at the best rumours and confirmed deals coming out of the Emirates over the past 24 hours.

Kvaratskhelia ‘annoyed’ by Arsenal talk

Napoli star Kvicha Kvaratskhelia has reportedly been left ‘annoyed’ by talk that Arsenal are interested in signing him this summer. The Georgian wideman was one of the shining lights in Serie A last season as Napoli lifted the Serie A crown.

It has recently been claimed that Arsenal are potentially considering a move for him, whilst Newcastle were also thought to be eyeing him. Kvaratskhelia is unlikely to be on the move any time soon though given his response.

According to Il Mattino, he is not thinking about leaving Naples any time soon. He reportedly wasn’t moved by talk of a move to Newcastle, whilst fresh talk regarding Arsenal irritated him.

It is further suggested that Aurelio De Laurentiis is ready to tie him down to a new contract at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

Sanchez to play role in Balogun future

Former Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez could play a huge role in the future of Gunners academy graduate Folarin Balogun. The striker has been linked with making a move to Inter Milan as a replacement for Romelu Lukaku.

However, the Italian giants have yet to meet Arsenal’s £50m asking price for the American which has led them to consider alternatives. Sanchez, who represented Inter for three seasons, is available on a free transfer.

He could be drafted in as a stop-gap option should they fail to agree a deal for Balogun, according to Corriere della Sera. Roma and Barcelona have also both been linked with the Chilean.

Midfielder deal complete

Arsenal midfielder Ben Cottrell has departed North London to join NS Mura on a permanent deal. The 21-year-old initially arrived at the club in 2010 and had made one senior appearance.

Speaking after the move was made official, he said: “I'm delighted to be here and I can't wait to join my new team-mates in training.

"I know about the successes that the club has achieved in the past years and I hope that we have a good and successful season ahead of us, in which we will manage to qualify for the European competitions and also do well in the cup competition.

“I believe that I made the right decision to come to Mura, where I can progress and I promise that I will do everything to restore the trust of the club with successful games"
