Arsenal are forever being linked with attacking targets, and while the circus surrounding the future of Kylian Mbappe continues, we thought we’d look at the more realistic options.
Yes Mbappe would be an amazing capture, but him joining us unfortunately stems in dreamworld for me, and he will end up staying at Monaco, or joining Real Madrid. Even PSG would fail to land him this summer in my opinion.
Mario Lemina has revealed he is set for talks with Juventus as he looks to secure more regular action ahead of the new campaign, with Arsenal keen.
The French midfielder, who has been likened to Manchester United’s record signing Paul Pogba, has admitted to be being flattered by the interest shown in him by the Gunners, and is now ready to talk to his current club about his future.
Paris Saint-Germain manager Unai Emery has told the press that he wishes to sign Kylian Mbappe this summer, and that could actually work out to Arsenal’s advantage.
The Paris-based manager has told the press directly that Mbappe should come to play for him, saying: ‘With all respect to Monaco, he should come to Paris, he has family here. His parents live here, he went to an academy here.’
Arsenal are claimed to have shown a strong interest in signing Yacine Brahimi from Porto this summer.
The forward is expected to leave his current club in the coming window, with Porto said to be in need of funds. West Ham and Everton have both shown an interest, but it is claimed that the Gunners are at the front of the queue.
According to a number of reports, Manchester City are close to landing a deal which will see Alexis Sanchez move from Arsenal, but Sky Sources claim otherwise.
Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas has told Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger that he needs to rid his side of up to seven weak squad members, while bringing in three big signings.
The Frenchman is believed to have been tasked with a fast and effective transfer window, with the board said to have been unhappy with the saga which ran until deadline day in the previous summer.
Arsenal fans are pleading on social media for their club to sign Diego Costa from Chelsea this summer, with the striker definitely on the move this summer. The Spanish international revealed that manager Antonio Conte has told him that he is not a part of his plans for the coming campaign, with Romelu Lukaku strongly linked as his replacement.
