Meanwhile it emerged that Mustafi’s proposed move to Juventus as cover for Cellini broke down and he is staying at Arsenal at least until January.

In terms of the transfer window deadline, Arsenal have backed changing the date to be in line with the rest of Europe – the beginning of September.

They originally wanted it bringing back to the beginning of the season, after the Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain transfer in 2017, but now favour the later date – along with four of the top six. Only Chelsea want it to remain, arguing any club can say “no”. The change is expected to be ratified on 12 September.
