Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in the Premier League on Friday, August 7.
Friday morning's Premier League transfer talk news roundup:
Chelsea attacker Willian has reportedly agreed a three-year contract with Arsenal worth £100,000 a week.
The speculation surrounding the Brazil international's future continues to gather pace with his contract at Stamford Bridge due to expire later this month.
A recent leaked clip from video game PES 21 appeared to confirm that the 31-year-old was heading for the Emirates Stadium ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
According to ESPN, the experienced attacker has now agreed a three-year deal with the Gunners, and a move is expected to be announced before the end of August.
Willian had allegedly been keen to remain with Chelsea, but the Blues were not prepared to grant a three-year extension due to their policy on over 30s.
The South American has been in strong form for Frank Lampard's side this season, scoring 11 times and contributing nine assists in 47 appearances in all competitions.
Arsenal are expected to be busy during this summer's transfer window despite suggestions that the Gunners will be unable to make any big-money signings due to the financial impact of the coronavirus outbreak.
A number new defenders continue to be linked with a switch to the Emirates Stadium, while head coach Mikel Arteta is also said to be keen to improve his attack ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings at the Emirates Stadium.
Thursday morning's Arsenal transfer talk news roundup:
Chelsea attacker Willian is seemingly heading for Arsenal ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
Indeed, a leaked clip from video game PES 21 has given Arsenal supporters further hope that their side have won the race to sign the Brazil international, who is expected to leave the Blues later this month.
The seven-second trailer for the next Pro Evolution Soccer game was posted by The Sun and shows Willian in Arsenal's new adidas shirt, accompanied by the message "new signing".
The experienced attacker has been in impressive form for Frank Lampard's side during the 2019-20 campaign, scoring 11 times and contributing nine assists in 47 appearances in all competitions.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is allegedly waiting to see whether Barcelona make a move for him before deciding whether to sign a new contract with Arsenal.
The Gabon international will see his existing deal at the Emirates Stadium expire next summer, and the Gunners are determined to tie him down to an extension.
However, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano, the 31-year-old wants to see if Barca will make an offer for his services.
Speaking to The Beautiful Game podcast, Romano said: "Aubameyang is waiting to see if other top clubs offer him a contract, like Barcelona. At the moment, no-one has made a bid.
"Yes they are talking and it's up to Aubameyang because the contract has been offered to Auba many months ago, they did what they can, they offered him an important contract and he's going to decide soon."
Arsenal are reportedly closing in on the loan signing of Barcelona attacker Philippe Coutinho.
The 28-year-old has spent the 2019-20 campaign on loan with Bayern Munich but is due to return to Camp Nou later this month.
Barca were thought to be keen to offload him on a permanent basis this summer, although the financial impact of the coronavirus outbreak means that a big-money switch away from Camp Nou is unlikely.
According to Sport, though, the Catalan giants are open to a loan exit, and Arsenal are now at an advanced stage in talks with Barca over the former Liverpool playmaker.
