While the Arsenal transfer rumours surrounding the Chile international star Alexis Sanchez are in full swing and growing by the day, Gooners are also hearing about the players that Arsene Wenger is trying to bring into the club, with Riyad Mahrez and Thomas Lemar top of the list right now but with other names like Asensio, Cuadrado and many more being mentioned by various football sources.
At the same time, the stories linking the Gunners with a world record transfer of the young Monaco and France starlet Kylian Mbappe seem to have drifted away and that is a bit strange when you consider that Arsenal were right up among the contenders for him and that the 18-year old is one of the hottest and most sought after players in the world right now.
No other club has signed him and there are not even reports suggesting that any are about to, so could Arsene Wenger still be hoping to swoop with a big money bid? maybe he could, but I do not put much faith in the Daily Star report claiming that both Arsenal and the French club PSG have tabled offers of around £125 million for Mbappe.
I cannot see any club paying that for a relatively unproven player, no matter how promising they might be, and that goes double for Wenger and the Gunners, but with the furore over Mbappe having died down a bit, do you think Arsenal might go back and test the resolve of Monaco with a mega money bid of, say, 70 or 80 million?
