Arsenal have opened the transfer floodgates with big-money bids being submitted.

After landing Marquinhos and Fabio Vieira, the Gunners have turned to the Brazilian trio of Gabriel Jesus, Raphinha and Richarlison.

Mikel Arteta knows the trio could cost north of £150million as he bids a squad capable of challenging the top four.

Here is your latest update of Arsenal transfer news and rumours...

Raphinha

Arsenal have been told to increase their offer for Raphinha after having an opening bid rejected by Leeds, writes Standard Sport’s Giuseppe Muro.

The Gunners have turned their attention to signing Raphinha and wrapping up a deal for Gabriel Jesus after completing the £34million transfer of Fabio Vieira yesterday.

Leeds value Raphinha at around £60m and have told Arsenal their initial offer falls well below their asking price for the 25-year-old, who is also attracting interest from Tottenham, Chelsea and Barcelona after impressing in his two seasons in England.

Arsenal have identified Raphinha as one of their primary transfer targets and are likely to return with a second bid as they seek to strengthen their attacking options.

Richarlison

Arsenal are also leading the chase for Richarlison, according to the Daily Star.

According to journalist Paul Brown, the Brazilian's representatives are looking for avenues out of Everton but Tottenham’s interest in a deal has been "exaggerated" and Chelsea are concentrating on other targets.

However, Arsenal maintain a good relationship with those involved as other clubs weigh up a bid.

Gabriel Jesus

Arsenal will make Gabriel Jesus their highest earner, according to reports in France.

L’Equipe journalist Nabil Djellit says Mikel Arteta has offered a “monster” wage of around £330,000 a week and even more should the club qualify for the Champions League.

That will raise eyebrows.
