Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Gunners make Nikola Milenkovic BID, Yeremy Pino 'set to sign for £33m', Tielemans latest | The Sun

ARSENAL are reportedly close to signing Villarreal wonderkid Yeremy Pino for a cut price £33m.

Unai Emery's Champions League semi-finalists have only made the Conference League this season, meaning savings have to be made.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have also bid for Fiorentina and Serbia defender Nikola Milenkovic, according to reports.

And cult hero Hector Bellerin is reportedly set to terminate his contract.

The right-back's agent is in London to negotiate the parting of ways as the Spaniard looks to return to Betis, where he spent last season on loan.

Arsenal are still very interested in Youri Tielemans though, and have also been linked with AC Milan's Sandro Tonali.

    Legend Adams heads on Strictly Come Dancing 2022

    Football fans have been poking fun at Tony Adams after it was confirmed he was joining Strictly Come Dancing – as they remembered his hilarious moves.

    The Arsenal legend, 55, will be eyeing up another piece of silverware on the BBC show later this year to add to his impressive trophy cabinet.

    Adams said: “To say I’m excited is an understatement – the lure of the sequins and the call of the salsa has me swapping my battered old football boots for a set of Strictly soft shoes."

    White sparks injury fears

    Ben White has sparked injury fears ahead of Saturday’s clash against Leicester having been spotted wearing a knee brace in training.

    However the fact he was still training with the brace on could show that his problem isn’t too serious.

    Still, if Mikel Arteta decides to rest the defender, he may decide to start Takehiro Tomiyasu instead.

    A look back on opening night

    What a night eh Gunners fans?

    For the second season in succession, Arsenal kicked-off the new campaign with a Friday night London derby.

    But that was the only similarity with last term’s horror show at Brentford when the Gunners were embarrassed by the top-flight newcomers.

    This time it was Mikel Arteta’s team that impressed and eased to a 2-0 success to leave their fans dreaming of a memorable season.

    Mari joined the Serie A newcomers on Wednesday for the season’s duration.

    And Fabrizio Romano has revealed that Monza will pay £4.2m for his services on a full time basis.

    But that depends on if they manage to stay in the Italian top-tier division.

    Zinchenko a touch of class

    William Saliba may have earned the plaudits against Palace, but it was another Arsenal debutant that did the hard graft all over the pitch.

    New signing Oleksandr Zinchenko filled in for Kieran Tierney at left-back, and showed his versatility in getting forward whenever possible.

    And the Ukrainian also highlighted his willingness to play centrally, often coming inside to support and create.

    Zinchenko is expected to move into a central midfield once Tierney has fully regained fitness.

    Jesus goal tally prediction

    Gabriel Jesus has been tipped to score a minimum of 20 goals for Arsenal this season.

    The prediction was delivered by former Gooner Mikael Silvestre.

    Silvestre told Betting Expert: “I think he [Gabriel Jesus] should score in the 20s. 20 goals should be his mark this season, minimum.

    “It’s an interesting one because a lot of the time he is outside of the box, drifting left and right.

    "A lot of time on the right, but he ends up scoring a lot of goals in the box."

    20 goals should be Jesus' mark this season, minimum

    Ramsdale and Xhaka lose sleep over losses

    Arsenal’s losses give keeper Aaron Ramsdale and Granit Xhaka sleepless nights, the midfielder revealed.

    He said: “Me and Aaron [Ramsdale], for example, can’t sleep when we lose.

    “Nobody can see that this makes me very disappointed and very sad that people say we don’t get everything from the club. This is bulls***, you know. It’s difficult in England to bring people to the training ground. In Germany it’s different.

    “In Germany you have two, three, four thousand people that come every day.”

    Arsenal defender tipped for exit

    Ben White has been slammed as a waste of money that Arsenal will get rid of soon by Gabby Agbonlahor.

    He told Football Insider: "This is what I said a few weeks ago. It’s a waste of money what Arsenal paid for him. For me, he’s not good enough.

    “To pay £50million for him, Brighton must be laughing their heads off because he’s not better than Webster or Dunk and he’s not going to start for Arsenal.

    “You can see it in a year’s time, Arsenal will probably be looking to get some money back for him because he’s not going to play at right-back and they’ve got two better centre-halves.”

    White's unique start to career

    Ben White had a peculiar start to his football career as his family didn't like the sport.

    He revealed on Arsenal's Amazon Prime documentary that it was infact

    White explained: "It's weird because my family don't like football. They've never played it. Dad hates it. He would never, ever watch a game.

    "It was actually someone who my mum used to cut hair for. She would come out in the garden with me and she would get in goal and I would boot the ball at her.

    "That's where it all started, really. I don't think I was ever talented, like 'special'. I've just worked so much harder than everyone else.”

    Arsenal transfer targets assessed

    Arsenal have more chance of signing Cody Gakpo from PSV than they do of acquiring Bayern Leverkusen ace Moussa Diaby.

    That's the view of sports reporter Dean Jones who told Give Me Sport: " Diaby is going to be a hard one. Leverkusen basically just don’t want to lose him at this point.

    "They feel like they’re going to have a good season, so I don’t think that doors going to open.

    “Cody Gakpo is still one to look out for if they look abroad for the signing.”

    Xhaka speaks on captain role

    Granit Xhaka has insisted he doesn't need to be captain to lead at Arsenal.

    He told The Athletic: "Of course, you don’t need [the captaincy to lead].

    “Everyone can see the leaders in this team. Of course, you need a captain for the team when we need him.

    "But I don’t believe a lot in the armband. At the moment I have a feeling that it’s not only one, but a lot of people who are so good in this team who can speak with and they will help you.

    "This is what makes a big difference at the moment.”

    Jesus tipped for lead role

    Gabriel Jesus has been tipped to lead Arsenal to the heights Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette weren't able to.

    That's the opinion of Rio Ferdinand who told William Hill: "I think he goes and gives Arsenal what they’ve been missing.

    “He’s somebody that they can rely upon up front to score the goals. They’ve had (Pierre-Emerick) Aubameyang, who was indifferent at times. They’ve had (Alexandre) Lacazette, who didn’t get to the level they were expecting.

    “Jesus goes in there and the fact that he’s now the designated number nine and the man they’re relying on, with that responsibility, I think his confidence will give him another 10% minimum.

    "At City you weren’t seeing the best Jesus because he always thought, ‘I’m always going to get pulled out of the team, they’re always going to put someone else in instead of me, they’ll play a false nine instead of me’ – and that does something to your confidence.”

    "He’ll have different ways to speak to different people.

    “It gets the best out of me and him together when we have a little argument. We get back in the changing room and everything is fine.”

    Arsenal star Ben White has revealed how youngsters gave him stick over the price the Gunners paid to sign him.

    White joined the Gunners for £50m from Brighton last summer, and younger football fans weren't impressed.
