Arsenal transfer news: Thomas swap deal, Willian undergoes medical, Coutinho talks delayed

:Headline: Arsenal transfer news: Thomas swap deal, Willian undergoes medical, Coutinho talks delayed:
Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Arsenal on Tuesday, August 11.

Despite 55 redundancies having been made at the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal remain on the look out for several high-profile additions ahead of the new season.

Although Mikel Arteta's transfer budget has been increased courtesy of qualification for the Europa League, the Gunners will still need to be creative in the summer window.

While the big names continue to be linked with the North Londoners, a number of sales will inevitably have to be made in the coming weeks.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings.


Arsenal 'offer three players in Thomas Partey swap'

With a release clause of £45m, there is a strong argument that Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey represents excellent value for money.

However, as is the case at many clubs this summer, Arsenal would prefer to include at least one player in any proposal put forward for the Ghana international.

According to Spanish journalist Kike Marin, three of Arteta's first-team squad have been offered to the La Liga giants.

Nevertheless, despite Hector Bellerin, Lucas Torreira and Alexandre Lacazette all being mentioned in negotiations, it appears that Atletico have eyes on recouping their asking price in full.


Willian 'undergoes Arsenal medical'

After weeks of speculation regarding his future, Willian announced on Sunday that his seven-year stay at Chelsea had come to an end.

Despite the rivalry between the two clubs, it has been widely reported that Arsenal are the heavy favourites to secure the Brazilian's signature on a free transfer.

According to the Evening Standard, the Gunners have moved closer to getting a deal over the line after the playmaker completed a medical.

The 32-year-old is also said to have agreed terms over a three-year contract, 12 months longer than Chelsea were prepared to offer one of their longest-serving players.


Arsenal 'made to wait until after Champions League for Philippe Coutinho talks'

Having been made available by Barcelona, Philippe Coutinho is another player who has been linked with a future transfer to Arsenal.

That is partly due to his representative Kia Joorabchian having struck a strong working relationship with the club's head of football Raul Sanllehi.

However, according to Sport, Coutinho has requested that any talks regarding his next move are delayed for the time being.

The Brazilian is currently on loan at Bayern Munich, who face his parent club in the quarter-finals of the Champions League later this week.

The former Liverpool man would allegedly prefer to focus on winning the competition, rather than being distracted by any developments off the pitch.
