Arsenal news and transfers LIVE: Joao Felix update, £50m Asensio price, Alexander Isak contact
Hello and welcome to football.londonArsenal’s live coverage on Saturday.
The Gunners hosted Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday night in a crucial Premier League game.
Mikel Arteta’s side trailed 1-0 in the opening moments following a huge error from Gabriel Magalhaes, but they responded well in the second half. Substitute Nicolas Pepe equalized in the 82nd minute before Jose Sa scored an own goal in the dying embers of the clash to hand Arsenal an important 2-1 victory.
The win leaves the north London side just one point behind fourth-placed Manchester United, who have played two more league games. They now have over a week to prepare for a visit to local rivals Watford who currently sit in the relegation places.
Away from the pitch, Arsenal are still looking to strengthen their squad ahead of what looks like a busy summer transfer window.
A number of leaders including Joao Felix, Jonathan David and Alexander Isak continue to be mooted with a move to the Emirates and we’ll stay through all the latest rumors and gossip throughout the day.
With all of this in mind, be sure to stay tuned so you don’t miss any developments.
