All the latest Arsenal transfer news and rumours from across the British and European press on Saturday, June 17.
The Daily Star says that Arsenal are beginning to firm up their interest in Juventus midfielder Mario Lemina.
The Gabon international, 23, is contracted to the Old Lady until the summer of 2020.

Arsenal are also reportedly set to offer a second world-record bid of more than £100m AND Olivier Giroud for Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe, according to reports in the Sun.
The Gunners are believed to be just one of a number of big-name clubs from across the continent hoping to sign the impressive France international frontman this summer.
Meanwhile, the Mirror claims that Arsenal forward Lucas Perez is a summer target for Sevilla and former club Deportivo La Coruna, according to the player’s agent.
The Spain forward only arrived at the Emirates from Depor last summer, but the 28-year-old was just a bit-part player in his debut campaign in north London.
The biggest hint yet that Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil will stay at Arsenal has occurred after a promotional image of them wearing the new home kit was leaked online, says the Mirror.
The duo had both been expected to leave the club this summer.
Elsewhere, the Daily Mail reports that Calum Chambers could be set to leave Arsenal on a permanent deal with Everton said to be interested in signing him, should they fail to land Michael Keane from Burnley.
The versatile defender spent last season out on loan with Middlesbrough, although he was unable to prevent the club from being relegated from the Premier League and returned to the capital at the end of the campaign.
And finally, the north London club are ready to test Lyon’s resolve over Alexandre Lacazette again with an enhanced bid, according to reports in the Daily Telegraph.
However, the Gunners must still convince the France striker to join a club out of the Champions League rather than wait six months for Atletico Madrid’s transfer ban to end.
