Aubameyangs transfer stance and Roma in for Arsenal ace Lucas Torreira

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta hasn't had the easiest start to the season, despite the Gunners being busy in the transfer window.

Arsenal lost at Brentford on the opening weekend having splashed out on the likes of Ben White this summer.

Deals for Martin Odegaard and Aaron Ramsdale are believed to be close, but that might not be the end of things for the Gunners.

There could be outgoings with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette both linked with moves away after missing the Bees defeat.

Arsenal have since confirmed the reasons for the absences but that hasn't stopped the rumours rolling in, and Daily Star Sport have rounded up the best…

Aubameyang's stance

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been linked with a move away from Arsenal after missing the Premier League defeat to Brentford.

The Gunners have since confirmed Aubameyang had to sit out after testing positive for Covid, along with Alexandre Lacazette.

There have been suggestions that Aubameyang could head to Barcelona, but the Express claim the former Borussia Dortmund star does not want to leave the Emirates.

It's reported Aubameyang is happy at Arsenal and wants to see his contract through to the end.

Roma want Arsenal star

Serie A giants Roma were regularly linked with a move for Granit Xhaka earlier this summer but the Swiss star will remain at the Emirates.

Though Roma are still looking to raid the Gunners with reports now suggesting they are interested in Lucas Torreira.

It's believed Torreira is the target of several Italian sides at the moment with Arsenal open to moving him on before the end of the transfer window.

Wenger rejected Ferdinand

Man Utd icon Rio Ferdinand offered his services to Arsene Wenger in 2014, only for the former Gunners boss to turn him down.

"The maddest thing is I thought about joining Arsenal, as well," Ferdinand told his YouTube channel.

"At the end of my career when I was leaving Man United, I saw Arsene Wenger in a hotel.

"I said, 'Arsene, listen I am leaving Man United and if you want, I will come and try and help the dressing room etc, because I think you need help in that department. I will obviously play but, more importantly, I will come for the culture.'

"He didn't take me up on the offer and he was right because my performances at QPR weren't up to the levels."
