10am Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Ozil future LATEST, Saliba loan, huge Spurs derby day build-up

GOOD MORNING GUNNERS FANS

Arsenal face competition from Real Madrid in the race to sign £18million-rated Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai.

According to Bild, Real boss Zinedine Zidane has spoken on the phone with the Hungary international in a bid to persuade him to choose Madrid as his next destination.

Arsenal are also interested in Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma, according to talkSPORT.

Boss Mikel Arteta is reportedly a big fan of the Mali international and could look to partner him with summer signing Thomas Partey in the Gunners’ midfield.

The north London outfit could also make an approach for Istanbul Basaksehir midfielder Berkay Ozcan, with Arteta desperate to strengthen in the middle of the park.

Ozcan, 22, has impressed in the Champions League this season and has been dubbed the ‘new Mesut Ozil’.

Meanwhile, the Gunners are hoping to arrange a loan deal away from the club for 19-year-old defender William Saliba in January.

However, Saliba and Arsenal are at odds over where to send him.

Saliba would prefer a move back to his native France, while Arsenal would be happy for him to join a club in the Championship.
