Arteta ‘looking forward’ following Tottenham defeat

Arsenal still have plenty to play for over the closing weeks of the current season.

The Gunners are aiming to secure a Champions League place under Mikel Arteta at the expense of north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Despite plenty of work still to be done during the current campaign, attention will no doubt be turning to next term already, with the Gunners expected to be busy in the upcoming summer transfer window. A number of names have already been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium, whilst a handful of the current squad could potentially wave goodbye to north London before long.

With all of that being said, Mirror Sport takes a look at the latest Arsenal transfer rumours with just a number of weeks to go until the summer window opens.

Mavropanos exit confirmed

Whilst Arsenal are yet to confirm any incoming signings, it appears that one deal for the window has already been secured, with Greek defender Konstantinos Mavropanos exited the Emirates Stadium on a permanent basis. The centre-back joined Bundesliga outfit VfB Stuttgart at the start of the campaign.

According to HITC, there was a clause slotted into the deal that his initial loan deal would become permanent should they have avoided relegation from the Bundesliga. They did just that with a dramatic injury-time victory over Koln.

It is reported that they have paid just £2.5m for Mavropanos services, with a number of other clubs now interested interested in making a move. Read the full story here.

Gunners joined in Jonathan David race

With Mavropanos set to exit the Emirates Stadium imminently, one man who could potentially be on the way to north London is Jonathan David. The Canadian forward has long been linked with a switch to Arsenal, with Arteta keen to bolster his forward options.

However, there appears to be considerable competition for his services. As per But! Football Club, Premier League rivals West Ham United and Aston Villa are both interested in David ahead of the summer transfer window.
