Nicolas Pepe among players on sale

Reports claim that record signing Nicolas Pepe tops the list of players the Gunners are looking to offload.

The defensive trio of Hector Bellerin, Pablo Mari, and Ainsley Maitland-Niles are all available for transfer.

Others include Bernd Leno, Lucas Torreira, and Reiss Nelson, who Arsenal are keen to cash in.

Incredibly among the seven, only Leno has attracted a serious offer, with Fulham strongly linked with the shot-stopper.

According to Metro UK, the Cottagers are ‘trying hard’ to sign the 30-year-old Arsenal goalkeeper this summer.

Leno has one year left on his contract at the Emirates Stadium but is expected to leave during this transfer window after being replaced in the first team by Aaron Ramsdale.

Arsenal finally sign Gabriel Jesus from Man City

Earlier, Sports Brief reported Arsenal have completed the signing of Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus.

According to transfer guru, Fabrizio Romano, the Brazilian striker penned a five-year deal with the Gunners.

Arsenal have been in the market for a new prolific striker after losing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in January and Alexander Lacazette at the end of last season.

Jesus is expected to bolster Areta's attack line as the Spaniard seeks to challenge for titles next season.
