To some David Ornstein at the BBC is the oracle when it comes to Arsenal transfer news and they will be very pleased with what he has had to say today.
Ornstein has confirmed that Arsenal is set to see off Tottenham in the race to sign 18-year-old St Etienne defender William Saliba.
Arsenal will have to pay £27 Million for the teenager, however, the good news is that it is in instalments.
The bad news is that he will remain with the Ligue 1 outfit for another season but then we already kind of knew that.
There was no mention of the initial fee but regardless, it means that we will still have a healthy chuck of our transfer budget intact.
Additionally, Ornstein also confirmed that Arsenal is in talks with Real Madrid to bring Real Madrid midfielder Dani Ceballos to the Emirates on loan next season, another Tottenham target.
Ceballos is seen as the ideal replacement for the position vacated by Aaron Ramsey.
Finally, he also stated that Arsenal has not given up on signing Celtic left-back Kieran Tierney and are continuing to pursue that deal as well.
So, all in all not a bad update from the oracle.
