Arsenal started their Premier League campaign but also remains active in the transfer market as Mikel Arteta wants to add reinforcements and build on his impressive momentum.
The most eye-catching newcomer is Brazilian center-back Gabriel Magalhaes, who has so far joined from Lille for a £ 27m deal. His compatriot Willian also joined him with Dani Ceballos returning on loan for a second season from Real Madrid.
Arteta is keen on more new faces as he continues to build a new team. A new midfielder is a priority with Hossam Aour of Lyon and Thomas Partey of Atletico Madrid. Any additional spending is likely to require sales although right-back Hector Bellerin is more likely to leave. Paris Saint-Germain was interested in taking out a loan but moved with Arsenal only after a permanent sale. Goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez will leave, as Aston Villa prepares to strike a deal to be the new first record holder. Both Socrates and Lucas Torreira have been linked to the Italian league and are expected to leave before the deadline. We will have everything new for you throughout the day:

This seems unlikely, given Hakim Ziyech’s injury and the departure of Willian and Pedro, the teenager will definitely start against Brighton on Monday.
“He needs to continue training at the highest level, which is what I’ve seen him do in particular in the last week or 10 days,” Lampard said.
“In the last two matches, he played and made good effects and this is how he needs to continue as a young player with great talent and great potential.
“I want to see that potential realized.”

Lampard: The composition is not separated after Havertz’s signature
Frank Lampard insists that the arrival of Kai Havertz did not bother Mason Mount.
“I saw the Mason Mount story, I know it was totally fabricated by someone, especially if it was on the German side,” Lampard said.
“I don’t know if he has any friends or relatives out there that he’s going to talk to, it’s a weird angle for that to come from Mason.”
