All the latest transfer news and gossip from The Emirates Stadium.
After the injury suffered by Olivier Giroud yesterday it was inevitable that strikers were going to be linked with The Gunners this morning. And it is an old face doing the rounds with Edinson Cavani apparently the man wanted by Arsene Wenger.
Cavani is said to want a move in order to play in his favoured central striking role.
However, Arsenal will have to pay an extortionate amount for the player, whose wages would also be a major stumbling block to any deal.
Arsenal are said to be looking for a central defender before the end of the transfer window. Many names have been linked but there has now been developments in the race for a Thomas Vermaelen replacement.
Greek international defender Kostas Manolas has been the subject of interest from Arsenal all week, and it now appears that he could be on his way, after he missed Olympiakos' opening game of the Greek season.
Valued at £8 million Manolas is also being tracked by teams in Germany and Italy.
The West Ham United New Zealand international is out of contract next summer and The Hammers are said to be interested in selling the player.
The German World Cup winner stated:
"Right now I'm a little out of Real Madrid. But until August 31 anything is possible."
Bayern Munich are however keen, and would prove a big rival in his pursuit.
