One deal that Arsenal will not be striking this summer transfer window is the deal for Espanyol midfielder, Marc Roca.

This name has been on the wish list of the North London club for many transfer windows in the past and the speculations were raised again in this summer transfer window but it has been confirmed that a deal will not be happening.

This is because Marc Roca is now on his way to the German Bundesliga club, RB Leipzig to sign with the club, according to Mundo Deportivo.

However, the likes of AC Milan, Sevilla, and Villarreal who are keen on Marc Roca in this summer transfer window will have to seek other options as he would be heading to Germany for a new life.

Although, Marc Roca was not a priority for the Gunners as manager Mikel Arteta is very keen on Ghana international midfielder, Thomas Partey to help the depth of his midfield.

With the chances that Dani Ceballos would be returning to the Emirates Stadium for another season loan, the Spanish boss will be satisfied with his midfield for next season’s challenge.

Meanwhile, Marc Roca is highly rated, the reason why he has been on the wish list of several European clubs.
