Thursday's Arsenal transfer talk news roundup: Manor Solomon, Shkodran Mustafi, Yves Bissouma

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Arsenal on Thursday, January 14.

The January transfer window is now open, with Arsenal continuing to be linked with a host of big names.

The Gunners have endured a torrid first half of the season and have been tipped to bolster their ranks this month - in addition to offloading out-of-favour players - in a bid to turn their campaign around.

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:

Arsenal planning move for Shakhtar Donetsk winger Manor Solomon?

Arsenal have reportedly identified Shakhtar Donetsk winger Manor Solomon as a potential summer transfer target.

While Mikel Arteta remains on the lookout for January additions, the Spaniard is focused on reducing the club's first-team squad before the end of the month.

However, according to The Guardian, it has not stopped the Gunners boss from assessing his options for later in 2021.

Arsenal are said to have been scouting 21-year-old Solomon, who made an impression in the Champions League group stages earlier this season.

The Israel international scored home and away against Real Madrid, while he also netted four times in the Ukrainian top flight during the second half of the year.

Solomon still has just under three years remaining on his contract, leaving Shakhtar in a strong position regarding his future.

In-demand midfielder Yves Bissouma will reportedly finish the season at Brighton & Hove Albion before potentially leaving the club during the summer transfer window.

The 24-year-old has been in impressive form for the Seagulls during the 2020-21 campaign, making 17 appearances in all competitions, and his form is said to have attracted the attention of a number of clubs.

Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool have all been linked with the midfielder, who has a contract with Graham Potter's side until the summer of 2023.

According to Foot Mercato, there is January interest in Bissouma, but the Mali international is expected to finish the 2020-21 campaign at the Amex before potentially leaving this summer.

The report claims that the player's entourage would rather that he left in the next transfer window, where more opportunities could be presented.

Bissouma, who joined Brighton from Lille in 2018, is also said to be attracting the attention of Monaco.
