7am Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Aouar drops future hint, Sokratis set to leave, Ozil LATEST, Garcia eyed


Arsenal have reportedly made Borussia Dortmund star Julian Brandt their No1 target in January.

According to Calciomercato, the Gunners are keen to bring the German playmaker to the Emirates in their bid to add creativity to their side.

And it has been claimed that the Bundesliga side are willing to let him go having failed to impress this season.

He could replace Mesut Ozil at the club, with the World Cup winner said to have been offered to Juventus.

Tuttosport claim that the out-of-favour Arsenal playmaker is in contact with the Italian giants and a deal has been proposed.

The Gunners are said to be willing to let Ozil go for free while subsidising his wages in a six-month loan.

In other news, Lucas Torreira could reportedly be on his way out of Atletico Madrid in January.

The Uruguay international has struggled for game time while on loan in Spain, and he could now be on the move again in the New Year.

According to Mundodeportivo, the 24-year-old is being eyed up by Serie A outfit Torino.

And finally, Sokratis could be on his way out of North London in the summer.

Turkish journalist Sardar Ali has revealed the Greek centre-back is being eyed up by Fenerbahce.

Sokratis is available on a cut-price deal with the player set to become a free agent in the summer.
