Arsenal wanted a new deal agreed before the World Cup, however, talks went on the backburner while the club looked to replace Arsene Wenger.

With his current deal set to expire at the end of the upcoming season, the Welsh worldwide is in discussions over a new contract.

Arsenal open their 2018/19 Premier League campaign with a home fixture against defending champions Manchester City on August 12 (2030 IST).

The north London side have seen Alexis Sanchez and Jack Wilshere run down their contracts, while Mesut Ozil committed to a new deal in February after threatening to leave the club.

Arsenal have not given up hope of signing Sevilla star Steven Nzonzi, a man new Gunners boss Unai Emery previously worked with at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium, BBC Sport reports.

Despite the links, earlier in the month an Arsenal spokesperson told the Arsenal website Arseblog that the club was unaware of any approach from the Italian club.

"It's more for the player that he has the feeling that his situation is resolved and he can purely concentrate on the game. I am concentrating on this season, on the competition between the goalkeepers because we have plenty of options", he said.

The Gunners finished in sixth spot in the Premier League table last term.

Arsenal, unlike their nature, have been quite busy in the ongoing transfer market, having completed five new signings thus far, but Emery believes that he needs one more signing before he deploys his strategy to his new club. The non-league side were swamped by the Gunners 8-0.
