Arsenal transfer news: Mikel Arteta handed £27m deal boost as Gunners chase fifth signing | Football | Sport

Roma have an interest in Lucas Torreira but face competition from Italian rivals Lazio, Fiorentina and Torino for the midfielder’s signature.

Matteo Guendouzi and Alexandre Lacazette might be set for the chop too, with Arsenal looking to free up space in their squad as the Arteta revolution unfolds.

Meanwhile, Arsenal added former Tottenham youngster Jonathan Dinzeyi to their youth ranks on Monday and he’s looking forward to being given the opportunity to make a breakthrough.

“Knowing that Steve Bould is the head coach was a big factor for me,” said the new Under-23s recruit. “He’s a legend at the club and he’s played in my position, so I’m really hoping I can learn from him to develop my game.

“Seeing the likes of [Reiss] Nelson, [Bukayo] Saka, [Eddie] Nketiah and [Joe] Willock getting chances was a big thing for me too. That was another reason why I wanted to come here because I believe if you train hard then you’ll play well and the manager will give you the opportunity for you to show what you’re about. I’m really glad I’ve been given this opportunity.”
