Arsenal make ‘contact’ with Asensio, update on Trippier, and fans want Torreira

After losing their opening fixture of the season, Arsenal have bolstered their squad with the additions of Aaron Ramsdale and Martin Odegaard.

The Gunners' summer spending now totals £132million as Mikel Arteta looks to break back into the European spots after losing out last campaign.

Arsenal finished outside of the European placings for the first time in 25 years last season.

And Arteta's start for the 21/22 campaign didn't get off to the best start as the Gunners fell apart while playing away at newly-promoted Brentford.

Daily Star Sport has rounded up all the day's transfer dealings at the Emirates.

Arsenal eye Madrid star

Arsenal are eyeing a £35million move for Real Madrid star Marco Asensio, according to Spanish outlet Fichajes.

Arteta has reportedly made 'contact' with the star over a potential move to North London after his former teammate Odegaard also made the move.

Asensio's future is unclear at Madrid after a string of ankle injuries.

Trippier update

Arsenal have lined up Atletico Madrid's wantaway wing-back Kieran Trippier as their number one priority, according to the Express.

The Gunners are short on the right side of the pitch with Hector Bellerin falling out of favour and Callum Chambers struggling at Brentford.

Atleti have so far rebuffed any approaches for the Englishman.

Torreira had looked set to leave this summer, but he's now training with the first-team squad.
