Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Gunners ‘PUSHING’ to sign Rabiot, Saliba contract issues, Edu’s cryptic post – latest

Good morning Arsenal fans

Arsenal look set to lose out on Brazil star Matheus Cunha with Wolves confident of landing the forward, according to reports.

Julen Lopetegui is looking to bring reinforcements into Molineux after taking over as boss of the Midlands club.

The Spaniard has a big job on his hands with misfiring Wolves propping up the Premier League table heading into the World Cup break.

But the club look to have gotten a boost as the Mail indicates they are closing in on Cunha.

The striker is out of favour at Atletico Madrid and had been linked with a Premier League move.

Arsenal were among several English clubs linked with the 23-year-old.

Meanwhile, Arsenal will extend Charlie Patino’s contract for a further two years.

The youngster was out of contract next summer and attracting interest from top teams including Barcelona.

Arsenal have now moved to prevent Patino’s immediate exit by triggering a two-year extension clause.

But that still doesn’t solve the ace’s long-term future, with Patino wanting a pay rise and promises of a role in the first team.
