Goal summarises the biggest transfer talk involving Arsenal as doubt continues to cloud the futures of the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez

MAN CITY TO BID £70M FOR ALEXIS


Alexis Sanchez Arsenal

Manchester City will continue their pursuit of Alexis Sanchez until the end of the transfer window as they prepare a fresh £70 million bid for the Arsenal star, reports the Mirror .

Arsenal have so far refused to negotiate their Chilean forward, and could even let him leave on a free next summer in order to keep him for 2017-18. 

But Pep Guardiola is equally determined to take him to the Etihad Stadium, with City preparing a much-improved offer in order to finally convince the Gunners board into a sale.


MAN UTD, ARSENAL & LIVERPOOL VIE FOR DRAXLER


Julian Draxler Dijon PSG

Paris Saint-Germain star Julian Draxler has no shortage of suitors from the Premier League as he weighs up his future at Parc des Princes, according to the Mirror .

The arrival of Neymar and the possible signing of Kylian Mbappe has heightened speculation that the Germany international will have a limited role if any at PSG this season. 

And the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal are attracted by a reported knock-down fee of £32 million to take Draxler this transfer window.


€500M RELEASE CLAUSE FOR ASENSIO


Marco Asensio Real Madrid Barcelona Supercopa 16082017

Real Madrid want to reward Marco Asensio with a new contract until 2023 and increase his buy-out clause to €500 million, according to  Marca .

Asensio has been linked with a move to Arsenal, but Madrid are determined to ward off any interest with a new deal which will also bump his salary up to €4.5m a year.


INTER MAKE MUSTAFI APPROACH


Mustafi

Inter have made an approach to take Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi on a season-long loan deal, according to  GIanlucaDiMarzio.com .

The Serie A giants are looking to bolster their defensive ranks and have turned to the Germany international after failing to complete a deal for Manchester City's Eliaquim Mangala.

Arsenal are reluctant to let Mustafi leave, however, having spent around £35 million on him around a year ago.


PSG WANT £32M FOR DRAXLER


Julian Draxler Germany

Arsenal are ready to make their move for Julian Draxler, with PSG wanting around £32 million to complete a deal this summer, according to The Times .

The German winger joined the French side just seven months ago for £35.5m and is being chased by the likes of Borussia Dortmund and Inter Milan as well. 


MARSEILLE TARGET ARSENAL FULL-BACK


Mathieu Debuchy Arsenal Bournemouth

Marseille are targeting a move for Arsenal’s Mathieu Debuchy as the Ligue 1 club look to improve their options at right-back, reports France Football .

Debuchy isn’t in Arsene Wenger’s first-team plans and could secure a move to Marseille, who had previously been interested in the defender’s Gunners team-mate Olivier Giroud.


VILLA TARGET WILSHERE DEAL


Jack Wilshere Arsenal 20082016

Championship side Aston Villa have made an enquiry to sign Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere, according to the Mirror .

Wilshere has also been linked with the likes of Newcastle and Juventus, but Villa boss Steve Bruce is hoping to put together a suitably tempting package to persuade the England international to drop out of the Premier League.


PEREZ SET TO END ARSENAL STAY


Lucas Perez Arsenal

Lucas Perez is set to complete his move away from Arsenal in the coming days, with an £11 million return to former club Deportivo La Coruna, according to the Daily Mail.  

The 28-year-old has failed to establish himself at the Emirates following his transfer last summer, scoring just once in his 11 Premier League appearances. 

Perez played no part in the Gunners' opening game of the 2017-18 season, a 4-3 victory over Leicester City, and is on the verge of returning to Spain.


MAN CITY TO MAKE ALEXIS BID


Alexis Sanchez Arsenal

Manchester City are set to make a £60 million bid for Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez,  The Telegraph   reports.

Pep Guardiola is determined to sign the Chilean attacker in the current transfer window, but Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists he will not be sold. The ex-Barcelona star's contract expires at the end of the season, but City are not prepared to wait.


CHELSEA MOVE FOR OX


Alex Oxlade Chamberlain Arsenal

Chelsea are plotting a £35 million deal for Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, according to the Evening Standard .

The winger is out of contract at the Emirates Stadium next summer, and with no renewal on the horizon, Arsene Wenger will let him depart for the Gunners' London rivals.


ARSENAL TABLE FRESH ALEXIS OFFER


Alexis Sanchez Arsenal

Arsenal have made Alexis Sanchez a £300,000-a-week offer to stay at the club, reports Mail Online .

The Gunners have seen the Chilean enter the final year of his current contract, sparking interest from Premier League rivals Manchester City.


CHELSEA READY £35M OX BID

Chelsea are ready to test Arsenal with a £35 million bid for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, according to the  Daily Mirror .

The 23-year-old has just one year left on his contract with the Gunners and Antonio Conte hopes a large bid will persuade Arsene Wenger into allowing a move. 


PSG TO MAKE £80M ALEXIS BID


Sergio Aguero Alexis Sanchez September 2014

Arsenal's determination to keep Alexis Sanchez will be tested by a £80 million bid from Paris Saint-Germain, according to The Sun .

The Chilean has been linked throughout the summer with a move away from north London, with PSG and Manchester City two of the likeliest destination.

And while Arsenal seem set on keeping him at the club until his contract expires next June, a hefty offer from France may tempt them into a U-turn. 

Alexis, however, favours a move to City, where he would join up with former mentor Pep Guardiola - although the Gunners are reluctant to sell him to a Premier League rival.


WENGER BLOCKED ARSENAL LEMINA PURSUIT


Arsene Wenger Arsenal

Arsenal scouts were interested in Juventus' Mario Lemina but saw Arsene Wenger block any potential move, reports the Evening Standard .

Wenger remains largely in control of transfer policy after signing his two-year extension, and chose to prioritise other targets, including the signing of Alexandre Lacazette.

The report also notes Wenger is the driving force behind the Gunners' decision to keep Alexis Sanchez for this season and risk losing him on a free next summer.


CHELSEA TO BID FOR OXLADE-CHAMBERLAIN


Oxlade-Chamberlain Arsenal Chelsea FA Cup

Chelsea have made a £25 million bid for Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, reports the Daily Mail .

Initial overtures from the Blues over the England international have been dismissed by Arsenal. 

But the club see him as a perfect fit for Antonio Conte's 3-4-3 system and will heighten their interest in the hope of forcing a sale before deadline day.


VALENCIA WANT ARSENAL DEFENDER


Gabriel Paulista

Valencia are interested in signing Arsenal defender Gabriel Paulista, claims The Sun .

Arsenal are willing to sell Gabriel for £10 million, with the former Villarreal centre-half not a key part of Arsene Wenger’s first-team plans this season.


ALEXIS TO LEAVE ARSENAL ON FREE


Alexis Sanchez Arsenal

Alexis Sanchez has resigned himself to staying at Arsenal for another season before leaving the club on a free transfer, according to the Mirror .

The Chilean is out of contract in June 2018, leading many to expect a summer departure with Manchester City one of the clubs linked with a deal. 

Arsene Wenger's refusal to negotiate his forward, however, has led to Alexis cooling his desires to leave immediately, and he will now wait until he is a free agent in just under 12 months' time. 


ARSENAL LEAD LUCAS CHASE


Lucas Moura Paris Saint-Germain PSG

Arsenal are leading the battle to sign Lucas Moura, whom Paris Saint-Germain are looking to sell during the current transfer window,   UOL  claims.

The arrival of Brazil team-mate Neymar has done nothing to increase Lucas' hopes of staying in the French capital and clubs from England and Italy are hoping to land him. Arsenal have already had a bid rejected for the 24-year-old, but PSG would be willing to sell for around €30 million.

EVERTON CONSIDER WELBECK

Everton are ready to launch a £30 million raid for Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck if they miss out on his club mate Olivier Giroud, according to the Mirror .

FOUR-WAY BATTLE FOR LEMAR


Thomas Lemar Monaco

Arsenal have been joined in the hunt for Monaco winger Thomas Lemar by Liverpool, Manchester City and Barcelona, reports the Mirror .

The Gunners have seen three bids knocked back already, with the France international valued at £50 million.


MONACO READY £45M ALEXIS BID


Alexis Sanchez Arsenal

Monaco are looking to further strengthen this transfer window and are preparing a £45 million offer for Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez, according to the Sun .

Arsene Wenger is determined not to sell the Chile international, but Monaco want to prise him away after Ligue 1 rivals PSG brought in Neymar for €222m from Barcelona.


CITY STARLET SET FOR EXIT


Jadon Sancho Manchester City

Manchester City starlet Jadon Sancho has stopped training with the club in order to force a move away, according to The Independent .

The 17-year-old is highly rated at City and has been offered a professional deal, but feels he has very little chance of breaking through in the first team.

Arsenal and Tottenham are seen as the favourites to sign the England youth international.
