The Athletic journalist, David Ornstein reports that the English Premier League club Arsenal are already in some transfer talks that will have them seal a double deal in the coming weeks.
The North London club have just confirmed the arrival of Gabriel Magalhaes from French Ligue 1 outfit Lille to make it the second in this summer transfer window but from the look of things, they are just getting started.
It is understood that they have been linked with a number of players including Thomas Partey and Houssem Aouar from Atletico Madrid and Lyon respectively while a return of Dani Ceballos for a loan deal is still on the cards.

However, the respected journalist claims that the Gunners have opened talks with Lyon over the potential move for the midfielder who scored 9 goals and 10 assists in 41 appearances in all competitions.
Although, the fee for Houssem Aouar will be a major challenge for the Gunners as The Sun reports that the French Ligue 1 outfit will not be listening to offers less than £54 million.
Dani Ceballos remains the second deal that could be announced at the same time after claims that an agreement has been reached with Real Madrid for another loan deal at the Emirates Stadium.
