Goal summarises the biggest transfer talk involving Arsenal as they continue the fight to hold on to Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez

ARSENAL SCOUT BORO WINGER


Marcus Tavernier, Middlesbrough, 17/18

Arsenal are on the trail of Middlesbrough’s teenage winger Marcus Tavernier, reports the Daily Mail.

Tavernier recently scored the winner against Sunderland, and the England Under 19 international has also been watched by Everton, Bournemouth and Aston Villa.


OZIL IS BARCA'S COUTINHO BACK-UP


Mesut Ozil Arsenal

Barcelona are lining up Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil as a back-up signing to Philippe Coutinho, reports Mundo Deportivo .

Liverpool star Coutinho is again expected to be targeted by Barca during the January transfer window after they failed to push through a deal in the summer.

But, if Liverpool stand firm once more on Coutinho, Barca will instead move for Ozil, who is out of contract at the end of the season and could be available for a reasonable fee in January.


BARCA MAKE FEKIR CONTACT


Nabil Fekir Saint-Etienne Lyon Ligue 1 05112017

Barcelona have stepped up their interest in signing Nabil Fekir following reports Arsenal have made an offer for the Lyon attacker, according to Sport .

Fekir has enjoyed an impressive season so far for Lyon and is a prime target for Arsenal, while Real Madrid have also scouted him.

However, Barca are determined not to miss out on a deal for Fekir and have made contact regarding a deal which could cost in excess of €50 million.


BETIS LOOK TO SIGN WILSHERE


Jack Wilshere Arsenal

La Liga side Betis are closing in on a move for unsettled Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere, according to the Sun.

Wilshere is one of several Gunners stars whose current deals are coming to an end at the end of the season. 

And with little progress made on a fresh contract, the Spanish club have moved in to try and convince him to seek new climes.


ARSENAL WILL SWAP ALEXIS FOR STERLING


Raheem Sterling Manchester City 101717

Alexis Sanchez may be allowed to join Manchester City if the Citizens are willing to release Raheem Sterling as part of the deal, claims the Daily Mail.

Arsenal's Chilean star has been widely linked with a move to join Pep Guardiola at the Etihad Stadium, although the Gunners have as of yet refused to sanction a transfer.

But his contract is up at the end of the season, and Sterling would be an acceptable makeweight to allow Arsenal to cut their losses, although it is far from clear whether Pep would agree to such a deal.


BAYERN WANT GIROUD


Olivier Giroud Arsenal 2017

Bayern Munich are apparently eyeing a move for a back-up striker to Robert Lewandowski, with Olivier Giroud seen as a possible target, according to  Sport Bild

The Frenchman has seen his opportunities limited at Emirates Stadium in recent times, with the summer signing of Alexandre Lacazette further blocking his path to the starting XI.

Ajax forward Kasper Dolberg is seen as another option, with the Dane having apparently caught the attention of a number of Europe's top clubs with his performances.


ARSENAL CLOSE IN ON FEKIR


Nabil Fekir Lyon

Arsenal are closing in on a £60 million move for Lyon forward Nabil Fekir, according to the Daily Star.

The Gunners have been in talks with the 24-year-old for some time, and are hopeful a deal can be tied up in January.

That would pave the way for both Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez to leave before their contracts run down in the summer.


ATLETICO MAKE OZIL CONTACT


Mesut Ozil Arsenal

Atletico Madrid have contacted Arsenal attacker Mesut Ozil over a possible summer move, according to The Sun.

The Germany international will be out of contract at the end of the season, allowing him to potentially sign a pre-contract with a new club in January. Atletico are willing to offer Ozil a salary of £200,000-a-week and a significant signing-on fee, though that falls short of the £330,000-a-week number his representatives have requested from Arsenal.

Ozil could be tempted by a return to Madrid, however, after enjoying success at Santiago Bernabeu from 2010 to 2013.


LIVERPOOL LINE UP WORLD CUP WINNER


Morgan Gibbs-White, Wolves

Liverpool want to beat Arsenal and Tottenham to the signing of England Under 17 World Cup winner Morgan Gibbs-White, claims The Sun .

The midfielder has come through the ranks at Wolves and has already made his first-team debut, with Liverpool willing to pay £5 million for the 17-year-old.


MADRID TARGET LYON STAR


Nabil Fekir Lyon

Lyon attacker Nabil Fekir has emerged as the latest target for Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane, claims SFR Sport, via AS

Fekir is enjoying an impressive campaign for Lyon and the 24-year-old, who can play as an attacking midfielder or striker, has been scouted by Barcelona.

Arsenal, Juventus and Manchester United are also reported to be interested in Fekir, and now Madrid are keeping a close eye on his form this season.


GORETZKA WANTS PREMIER LEAGUE MOVE


Leon Goretzka, Schalke, 17/18

Schalke midfielder Leon Goretzka wants to move to the Premier League when his contract expires next summer, according to Sport .

Germany’s national team general manager Oliver Bierhoff has suggested the money on offer in English football is a persuasive factor for the likes of Goretzka, who has been interesting Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

However, the 22-year-old will ignore interest from those clubs in order to head to the Premier League, with Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham all having been linked with an approach.


ARSENAL WANT ZAHA TO REPLACE SANCHEZ


Wilfried Zaha

Arsene Wenger has lined up Crystal Palace attacker Wilfried Zaha as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez, according to The Sun.

With the Chilean's contract expiring after the season, Wenger will make a £35 million bid for the 25-year-old Ivory Coast international. 


JUVENTUS PLOTTING BELLERIN BID


Hector Bellerin Arsenal

Juventus are piecing together a move for Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin, reports Tuttomercatoweb .

Contact has already been made with the Spaniard's representative regarding a possible big-money switch to the reigning Serie A champions.


ARSENAL SET OZIL ASKING PRICE


Mesut Ozil Arsenal

Arsenal will demand £30 million for Manchester United target Mesut Ozil in January, according to the Daily Star. 

The Gunners appear ready to cash in on the German, whose contract expires at the end of the 2017-18 campaign, and Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho is eager to be reunited with a player he enjoyed coaching at Real Madrid. 


OZIL DEMANDS WILSHERE'S NO.10 SHIRT


Mesut Ozil, Arsenal

Mesut Ozil wants Jack Wilshere’s No.10 shirt as part of any new contract he signs to stay at Arsenal, claims The Sun .

Germany international Ozil is out of contract at the end of the season and he has been linked with a move to the likes of Manchester United.

Ozil currently wears the No.11 jersey at the Emirates Stadium, but has his eyes on the No.10 of Wilshere, who is also out of contract next summer.


NAVAS TO REPLACE CECH AT ARSENAL?


Keylor Navas Costa Rica

Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas is wanted by Arsenal as a long-term replacement for Petr Cech, reports Diario Gol .

Navas’s future at Madrid is uncertain as the Costa Rica international is reportedly unhappy at the club’s interest in the likes of Manchester United keeper David de Gea.

Liverpool are already reported to have registered their interest in Navas, and now Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is looking at the Madrid No.1 to take over from Cech.


ARSENAL EYE £10M DEAL FOR FORMER PLAYER


Oguzhan Ozyakup Besiktas

Arsenal are lining up a £10 million deal to bring Oguzhan Ozyakup back to the club as a replacement for Mesut Ozil, claims Fotomac, via Turkish-Football.com .

Ozyakup left Arsenal for Besiktas in 2012 after making just two substitute appearances for the Gunners, but he has impressed during his time in Turkey.

The midfielder has caught the eye in the Champions League this season and Arsene Wenger is considering a January approach for the 25-year-old as he assesses potential replacements for Ozil, who is out of contract at the end of the season.


ARSENAL & CITY WANT £5M AJAX MIDFIELDER


Frenkie de Jong Ajax Manchester United Europa League final

Arsenal and Manchester City want to sign Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong in a £5 million deal in the January transfer window, claims The Sun .

De Jong, who appeared as a substitute in last season’s Europa League final against Manchester United, is also being watched by Chelsea.

But Arsenal and City head the chase for the 20-year-old, and have already been in contact with Ajax about a potential deal in the New Year.


SPURS TO FIGHT ARSENAL FOR GORETZKA


Leon Goretzka Schalke

Tottenham Hotspur are set to join Arsenal in the race to sign Leon Goretzka from Schalke,  The Mirror  reports.

The 22-year-old has long been a target for the Gunners and continues to attract interest from across Europe. Spurs are said to have watched all of his games this season and could make a move as his contract expires at the end of the season.


BETIS PLOT WILSHERE BID


Jack Wilshere Arsenal

Real Betis are planning on making another move for Jack Wilshere, according to  The Sun .

The Arsenal midfielder rejected a move to the Spanish side in the previous transfer window in order to stay in north London. The 25-year-old has returned to action after his recovery from injury, but is yet to secure a place in the starting XI.

In the final year of his contract and with a World Cup coming up, Betis will return in January to try to snap him up or sign an agreement to join them ahead of next season.
