David Ornstein updates Arsenal fans on Jack Wilshere & Serge Gnabry

Arsenal are entering the final day of the summer transfer window concentrating solely on a number of outgoings rather than incomings, according to BBC journalist David Ornstein.

The Gunners have officially announced a deal for Deportivo star Lucas Perez while confirmation of Shkodran Mustafi's arrival from Valencia is imminent.

Once those deals are over the line, Arsene Wenger's transfer business will be over for another summer with over £90million being invested in a mix of established stars and exciting youngsters.

So, unfortunately for Arsenal fans, they won't be seeing their side actively trying to sign another player before Wednesday's deadline but that doesn't mean they won't be busy. According to Ornstein, it could be a very active day indeed.

The well-connected reporter has provided an update with regards to Jack Wilshere's potential loan deal and Serge Gnabry's reported switch to Bayern Munich. He also confirmed Arsenal's spending is over.

He said: "Wilshere loan 1yr no break clause if right club found. #AFC want to keep Gnabry but big #FCBayern offer may change things. No more signings."

Wilshere update

The news about Wilshere appears to suggest no deal for the midfielder is close. Arsenal made him available on a season-long loan on Monday and a host of clubs from around Europe have expressed an interest.

Serie A sides Juventus and AS Roma have been linked while La Liga side Valencia have a long-term interest. Inevitably, a host of Premier League clubs are also keen on a deal.

Gnabry update

News on Gnabry is the more surprising. Reports in Germany seemed to claim that a deal with Bayern Munich was very close but Ornstein rejects this, insisting the Bundesliga giants are simply interested in signing him.

Arsene Wenger has already confirmed his desire to keep the young winger after his impressive performances at the Olympics and only a big offer will tempt him into selling.

Other news

One other player expected to leave before the deadline is defender Calum Chambers. Like Wilshere, much was thought of Chambers but he has fallen down the pecking order with the arrival of Mustafi further reducing his chances of first-team football. He is believed to be closing in on a loan move to Middlesbrough.

Chuba Akpom could also be on his way out on a temporary basis. The signing of Perez means the England youth international is now the fourth choice behind Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez.
