Arsenal transfer news: Gabriel Magalhaes exit chance as fresh Newcastle link emerges

The Gunners are claimed to be aware of such interest in the Brazilian defender, but it remains to be seen whether they will be open to a sale.

Gabriel missed out on the starting 11 against Nottingham Forest at the weekend, coming on from the bench in the final few minutes of the win, with Mikel Arteta claiming it was for tactical reasons.

Turkish side Besiktas have made an offer to Arsenal winger Nicolas Pepe this summer that could see his spell at the club come to an end. That’s according to Fabrice Hawkins, who reports that a three-year deal has been placed for the Ivorian, who is off the back of a loan spell with OGC Nice.

The Gunners will have to make a decision surrounding the future of Pepe and whether he will leave on a free this summer, despite costing a club-record £72million.

Newcastle are following a move for Arsenal defender Kieran Tierney this summer as part of their plans to bolster their left-back ranks. That’s from a report in the Daily Mail, which claims the Magpies are eyeing the Scottish international, who continues to be linked with an exit.

Tierney wasn’t involved in Saturday’s clash with Nottingham Forest, having missed out due to selection reasons rather than injury concerns.
