All the latest Arsenal transfer news and rumours from across the British and European press on Monday, June 19.
Arsenal are preparing a big-money move for Barcelona midfielder Arda Turan, reports Turkish newspaper AMK.
Arda has been a bit-part player since joining Barca from Atletico Madrid in 2015 and AMK reports that the club have informed his agent Ahmet Bulut that the playmaker does not form part of their plans for next season.
Bulut has reportedly already held a meeting with Inter Milan to discuss a possible transfer but Arsenal are leading the chase to sign the 30-year-old.
It is believed the Gunners are preparing a £26.2m bid for the Turkish midfielder.
Arsenal are looking to land Genk defensive midfielder Sander Berge for £18m, according to The Daily Mirror.
The Norwegian 19-year-old made 30 appearances for the Belgian side last season and has played twice for the national team.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is demanding assurances over first-team football at Arsenal, according to The Sun.
The newspaper report that the 23-year-old is waiting for a contract offer at The Emirates, but will only sign it if he is promised more playing time.
Liverpool and Manchester City are reportedly interested in the midfielder.
AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca has emerged as a target for Arsene Wenger, according to France Football.
The Colombian has also been linked to Everton, but now Marseille have entered the race, say FF.
Arsenal would have to match Marseille's £3.5m-per-year offer, and Milan would reportedly sell the 30-year-old for £17.5m.
