Arsenal transfer news - Mikel Arteta eyes 22-year-old Aaron Ramsdale replacement

According to Football Transfers, Arsenal have shortlisted the 22-year-old goalkeeper from Ajax, Diant Ramaj, in case Aaron Ramsdale leaves in the summer.

Ramsdale has been pushed out of the starting eleven since the start of the season and as much as Arteta claims that he plans to use Raya and Ramsdale interchangeably, little evidence has been shown of this.

It would be a shame to see Ramsdale leave after he completely transformed the club last season. However, given his age and desire to be England number one, fans wouldn't hold any ill-feeling against Ramsdale if he were to leave, providing he doesn't join a league rival.

Arsenal transfer news - Competition from Chelsea and PSG for Victor Osimhen

There has been an update on Victor Osimhen. According to GIVEMESPORT, Arsenal are still in the race to sign Victor Osimhen as they remain interested, however, they face competition from Chelsea and PSG.

At the end of the day, this transfer boils down to two things - Arsenal and PSG needing to sign a goal-scorer and Chelsea needing to fuel their spending addiction. If Osimhen had any sense, he'd choose Arsenal or PSG.

Arsenal transfer news - Arsenal monitor Evan Ferguson

According to Football Insider, Arsenal are currently monitoring Brighton and Hove Albion forward, Evan Ferguson. It is believed that Mikel Arteta would like to bring in a world beater to fill the striker's boots, hence the interest in Osimhen too.

I don't think I'm going out on a limb by saying that Osimhen is a better option than Ferguson but hey, no Arsenal fan would turn up their nose at the chance of signing Ferguson, who has great Premier League experience already in his career.
