Which are the most credible Arsenal transfer rumours right now?
Sky Sports has teamed up with Football Whispers to bring you the hottest transfer talk of the moment, as Arsene Wenger looks to improve his squad ahead of the upcoming Premier League season.
Football Whispers have developed a unique algorithm to take all of the transfer rumours from across the globe and calculate the likelihood of them happening.
They track transfer stories and give them a score out of 5.0, with the hottest Whispers closest to 5.0.
The top three are:
1. Alexandre Lacazette (Lyon) - 4.5
As the clock counts down until the end of the transfer window, Arsenal continued to be linked with Lacazette.
Asked about the striker at his press conference on Thursday, Arsene Wenger said: "We do not talk about individual players. When the buyer is English, it is true that it multiplies the transfer by two or three or sometimes by 10 because if for the same player an English club does not come in, he is worth five million. But if an English club comes he is worth 35 or 40 or 50."
2. Marcel Tisserand (Monaco) - 4.4
Having been without several defenders for their Premier League opener against Liverpool, Arsenal have been linked with Monaco's Tisserand.
The DR Congo international impressed on loan at Toulouse last season, and his versatility could be useful for Wenger. Tisserand, who can play centre-back or right-back, is reportedly being considered to ease Arsenal's defensive injury problems.
3. Simon Kjaer (Fenerbahce) - 4.1
Sky sources understand Kjaer, along with Bayer Leverkusen defender Omer Toprak, is a target for Arsenal.
The Denmark international, who signed for Fenerbahce from Lille in 2015, is an alternative option for Wenger should Arsenal fail to agree a deal for Valencia centre-back Shkodran Mustafi.
