Arsenal transfer news: Gunners linked with German defender, set to miss out on another

A round up of transfer stories this morning about Arsenal.

AC Milan reportedly met with Arsenal yesterday over the future of Joel Campbell.

The Costa Rican forward is being linked with a loan move to the Serie A giants.

Campbell bagged his first goal for the Gunners in the Emirates Cup game against Benfica over the weekend.

Arsenal have reportedly joined the race to sign Mats Hummels from Borussia Dortmund.

The German defender has been strongly linked with a £20 million move to Manchester United this summer.

Arsenal could have the edge if they go for him owing to their Champions League status.

Newcastle United have reportedly landed the first blow in the race to sign Jamaal Lascelles.

The Daily Mail claims Newcastle have made a £3 million bid for the highly rated 20-year-old defender.

Lascelles has been tipped to move to North London to continue his development under Arsene Wenger.
