Arsenal are having great trouble landing any of their targets this summer with Jonny Evans rejecting a move to the Emirates, Kylian Mbappe going to Real Madrid, and Monaco rejecting every offer from the Gunners for Thomas Lemar even though we have increased our offer up to 100 million Euros.
It has been reported that the Ligue 1 champions finally accepted the massive offer from Arsenal for the 21 year old, but the player himself has made it clear that he would much rather join Liverpool. Could this be anything to do with the massive reversal Arsenal suffered at Anfield on Sunday? Or simply because the Reds beat Arsenal to a Champions League place by one point?
This is what the SkySports reporter Jim White has just tweeted….

This is beginning to look like a nightmare day for Arsenal fans, with all our players desperate to leave, but none of targets willing to come along and work under Wenger chasing the Europa League!
Well at least Arsene will have got his wish to trim the squad down to a manageable size….
