Arsenal leading race for Copa America star Guido Rodriguez amid Edus decision

It may not seem like it during the craziness of Euro 2020, but there's still plenty going on at Premier League clubs during the summer transfer window.

And that's no different at the Emirates with Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta working hard as he looks to improve his squad.

Players departed the Gunners earlier this week, potentially opening the door to some arrivals in the coming weeks.

Arteta had said: "We have already had an incredible amount of changes at the club over the past year or so, more than ever.

"We are looking to improve and be much closer than where we are at the moment. In order to do that there are certain things that we have to improve."

And Daily Star Sport has taken a look at some of the latest gossip involving Premier League giants Arsenal…

Arsenal 'lead race'

Arsenal are reportedly now the frontrunners to sign Guido Rodriguez from Real Betis this summer.

Rodriguez is currently playing for Argentina in the Copa America having shone in La Liga in recent years.

Spanish outlet Marca say the Gunners could open their bidding at a touch over £25m, with the Premier League giants believed to be leading the race to sign the midfielder.

Ramsey return?

The Gunners have been linked with a move for former star Aaron Ramsey, who has found life tough since joining Juventus.

The Welsh midfielder is earning plenty at the Serie A giants though Italian outlet Calciomercato report he is willing to reduce his salary to go ‘home’.

Though Arsenal do not want to pay for Ramsey having initially let him leave on a free, so a transfer may not be that likely.

Edu decision

Arsenal allowed a trio of players to leave on Monday, and have now let an icon of the club depart.

Steve Bould had been with the Gunners for 33 years though is now out of work having been in charge of the Gunners' U23 side for the last two seasons.

It comes with academy manager Per Mertesacker looking to implement a restructuring of the coaching staff, though the decision would have ultimately been Edu's.
