Good morning Gunners fans
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is about to move to Barcelona on loan.
Fabrizio Romano claims Arsenal are happy to let their underpowered captain go to Spain.
However, Barca cannot meet Aubameyang’s salary and are hoping to negotiate a lower salary package.
Meanwhile, Tottenham are tipped to have a £32m battle with Arsenal for Aston Villa star Douglas Luiz.
The Mail claim that Antonio Conte is a huge fan of the Brazilian midfielder, who has only 18 months left on his contract with Villa.
Arsenal are said to be inquiring about a final day for Luiz, 23.
But the Samba star, who has nine caps for his national team, could end up with rivals Spurs instead.
Elsewhere, Arsenal are tipped to offer a great deadline date for Alvaro Morata.
According to AS, the failed former Chelsea player has been linked with Mikel Arteta on loan.
And Morata is ready to return to England after Juventus launched Dusan Vlahovic – Arsenal’s top target this month.
Ultimately, Tottenham’s signing of Juventus midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur means it’s more likely that Arthur Melo will stay where he is.
Arsenal have been in talks with the midfielder throughout January and hope to finalize the deal within the last few days of the deadline.
However, for now, Juventus letting him go on loan is unlikely.
