Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Arsenal on Friday, August 2 ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.

Arsenal ultimately suffered a disappointing first campaign under Unai Emery in 2018-19, missing out on a top-four finish in the Premier League and then seeing their final chance of Champions League qualification ended by defeat in the Europa League final.

The Gunners are eager to bolster their squad this summer in an attempt to return to the top table of European football, but Emery is understood to have been given a transfer budget of just £45m to work with.

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