Official – Wenger Announce Lemar Deal, £200,000-per-week agreed

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.

The Arsenal manager has been able to dive early into the transfer market this summer as he has signed Sead Kolasinac on a free transfer to improve his defensive options and Alexandre Lacazette n a club record deal ahead of the forthcoming season.

However, Wenger appears to be looking to sign on more defender, considering the fact that some of his key shot-stoppers were out with injuries last term.

And according to an exclusive report by the Daily Express, the Gunners are now planning to make a huge transfer deal with Southampton for Virgil van Dijk.

The 26-year-old has been linked with a move to several Premier League top clubs following an impressive 2016-17 campaign for the Saints.

Even so, Southampton are believed to be holding out for an expensive transfer fee and Arsenal are reportedly ready to make an offer worth $58.7 million (£45 million).
