Arsenal remain in pole position for a Champions League spot heading into the business end of the season. The Gunners currently sit fourth in the Premier League, three points ahead of north London rivals Tottenham after Mikel Arteta’s side impressive 1-0 win away to Aston Villa. Arsenal now look like the favourites to claim the final top four spot behind Chelsea, Liverpool and Man City, which may help them secure the transfer targets on their shortlist.
With a number of players’ contracts expiring at the end of the season, Arsenal could be set for another big summer transfer window with plenty of incomings and outgoings.
As Arteta’s side march on towards a top four spot, rumours of big name targets continue to circle the club. We’ve rounded up the latest Arsenal transfer news and rumours below.

Eden Hazard ‘frustrated and confused’ at Real Madrid
According to GOAL, former Chelsea and Real Madrid winger Eden Hazard is reportedly “frustrated and confused” over his playing time under Carlo Ancelotti.
Hazard moved to Madrid in July 2019 for fee in the region of £90million, but has struggled to have the same impact at the Bernabeu as he did at Stamford Bridge.
The Belgian has been linked with a move to Arsenal and his lack of minutes could push through a potential move.
Arsenal keep Victor Osimhen on transfer radar
Arsenal will be in the market for at least one new attacker this summer, as the club look to replace Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who left the Emirates in January to join Barcelona.
Arsene Wenger tried to bring Osimhen to Arsenal five years ago, but the Nigerian international admitted he did not feel ready to make such a big move at that stage in his career.
Osimhen has since impressed at each club he has played at including spells at Wolfsburg, Lille and now Napoli, scoring 11 goals in 20 appearances so far this season.
The 23-year-old ticks a lot of boxes for Arsenal and according to the Mirror, Osimhen is one of the top transfer targets at Arsenal this summer.
Noa Lang’s value revealed
Club Brugge playmaker Noa Lang has been linked with a move to the Emirates this summer after an impressive season with the Belgian outfit.
The 22-year-old has scored eight goals and registered 13 assists in 40 appearances so far this season, playing predominantly as a left winger and centre forward.
With the futures of Eddie Nketiah, Nicolas Pepe and Alexandre Lacazette all uncertain, HLN reports that the valuation set for Lang is €30million (£25million), which could be an attractive proposition for the Gunners to take advantage of.
