OX WANTS ARSENAL ASSURANCES


Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Arsenal

Arsenal are confident Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will sign a new £100,000-a-week contract, but the midfielder wants assurances about his role before committing his future, reports the Evening Standard .

Liverpool and Manchester City have shown an interest in the England international, who has a year left on his current deal and wants to know where he fits into Arsene Wenger’s plans next season.


BARCELONA SET BELLERIN DEADLINE


Hector Bellerin Arsenal

Barcelona have set a deadline to agree a deal to bring Hector Bellerin back to the club from Arsenal, according to Mundo Deportivo .

Bellerin is reportedly keen to return to Camp Nou, but Arsenal don’t want to sell the right-back. Barca have now decided that, if a deal isn’t sorted within the next 10 days, they will move on to other targets.


AC MILAN TARGET KOSCIELNY DEAL


Laurent Koscielny Arsenal Premier League

AC Milan have made Arsenal centre-half Laurent Koscielny a prime target as the Italian club look to strengthen their defence this summer, according to Telefoot .

Koscielny has also been linked with the likes of Manchester City, Marseille and Chinese clubs this summer, but it is likely to take a big offer and persuasive argument to get Koscielny to leave Arsenal.


GIROUD WANTS WENGER TALKS


Olivier Giroud Arsenal

Olivier Giroud is set to hold talks with Arsene Wenger over his future at Arsenal as the club close in on the signing of Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette, according to the  Evening Standard .

Giroud, who has also been linked with West Ham, has been tipped to be used as a makeweight in Arsenal’s bid for Lacazette and wants clarification from Wenger over his situation at the Emirates Stadium.


MAHREZ GIVES UP ON BARCELONA


Riyad Mahrez Leicester City

Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez has grown tired of waiting for Barcelona to make a firm offer and is now keen to join Arsenal in a €40 million (£35.1m) deal, according to  Sport .

Mahrez had been a back-up option for Barcelona this summer, but with the Algerian keen to resolve his future, he is keen to agree a four-year deal with Arsenal.


ARSENAL CONSIDER ALEXIS-AGUERO SWAP


Aguero Man City Stoke

Arsenal are considering a swap deal that would see them allowing Alexis Sanchez to join Manchester City in exchange for Sergio Aguero, according to the Daily Star .

Alexis has long been linked with joining Pep Guardiola's side and it appears the Gunners could be open to a sale that would involve the Argentine heading in the opposite direction.


ARSENAL & BARCA BATTLE FOR BRAGA STARLET


Arsene Wenger Arsenal 2017

Arsenal and Barcelona are battling to make Braga teenager Pedro Neto the second most expensive 17-year-old in football history, according to A Bola .

Braga have already rejected a €15 million (£13.2m) offer from Arsenal for the forward and won’t sell for less than his €20m (£17.6m) release clause.

Barcelona are reportedly preparing to make a final offer in the coming days and that could lead to Neto being behind only Alexandre Pato in the list of most expensive 17-year-old footballers.


NIANG WAITING ON ARSENAL OFFER


M'Baye Niang Watford

AC Milan striker M’Baye Niang is hoping Arsenal will make him an offer after stalling on a move to Everton, according to Calciomercato.com .

Everton have agreed a €15 million (£13.2m) fee with Milan to sign Niang, but the player has yet to accept a switch to Goodison Park as he holds out for a transfer to a bigger club.


ARSENAL YOUNGSTER TO JOIN BENFICA


Chris Willock

Arsenal winger Chris Willock has turned down a move to Manchester City in favour of a deal with Portuguese side Benfica, according to O Jogo .

Willock is out of contract at the Emirates Stadium and has decided to leave the Gunners, with Benfica putting together the most persuasive argument to sign him.


LIVERPOOL TO SWOOP FOR OX

Liverpool wants to back up their move for Mohamed Salah with a swoop for Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, claims the Mirror .

The move would cost £30 million despite the England midfielder having just 12 months left on his deal with the Gunners.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has also been linked with Chelsea but would inject even more pace into Jurgen Klopp's side and add depth as the Reds return to the Champions League. 


WEST HAM WANT WALCOTT


Theo Walcott Arsenal

West Ham are preparing to launch a £25 million bid for Arsenal forward Theo Walcott, says the Daily Mirror .

The England international lost his place in Gareth Southgate's squad towards the end of last season, while dropping out of a favour in a 3-5-2 system at club level, and the Hammers are prepared to offer him regular game time.


ARSENAL MULL OVER MARTIAL


Anthony Martial

Arsenal will turn their attention to Manchester United forward Anthony Martial if they miss out on Monaco's Kylian Mbappe, according to Mail Online .

The Gunners face missing out on their top target to Real Madrid, with Martial and Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette among those under consideration as alternatives.


BARKLEY STILL WANTS MOVE


Ross Barkley Everton

Ross Barkley is still looking for a way out of Everton this summer, according to The Sun .

The England international, who has been linked with Arsenal and Tottenham, believes he needs to move on in order to protect his place in the Three Lions fold.


BAYERN COOL INTEREST IN ALEXIS


Alexis Sanchez Chile

Bayern Munich are now focusing on Atletico Madrid winger Yannick Ferreira Carrasco as their interest in Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez has cooled off, according to L'Equipe .

The Bundesliga champions have been linked with Alexis, who is entering the final year of his contract at the Emirates, but now it appears the club are willing to pay €50 million for the Belgian instead. 


ARSENAL LEAD RACE FOR LACAZETTE


Alexandre Lacazette Lyon Ajax UEFA Europa League 11052017

Arsenal are prepared to pay up to €60 million in order to secure the services of Lyon striker Alexandre Lacazette, L'Equipe reports.

The France international was on the verge of joining Atletico Madrid before the Liga outfit saw their transfer ban upheld, but he could be now be in line for a move to the Premier League instead, with Arsene Wenger keen to land the attacker.


ARSENAL STILL KEEN ON €135M MBAPPE


Kylian Mbappe France 2017

Arsene Wenger will oversee a flurry of outgoings at Arsenal this summer which will allow him to make a sensational move for Monaco forward Kylian Mbappe, says the Telegraph

It was thought that the teenage striker had chosen Real Madrid as his next club having spoken with Zinedine Zidane, while Goal understands that Paris Saint-Germain have made an offer of around €135 million.

Arsenal, however, are refusing to give up the fight and are said to be willing to match the bid from Ligue 1 giants PSG.


ARSENAL TARGET BUTLAND


Stoke City | Jack Butland

Arsenal have made Stoke City's Jack Butland their No.1 goalkeeping target to replace Petr Cech, according to  Bleacher Report .

After missing out on Jordan Pickford to Everton, the Gunners have now switched their attention to England international Butland as they prepare for life after Cech.

The feeling at the Emirates Stadium is that the 2017-18 campaign will be Cech's last at the club, and they will continue to monitor Butland if he cannot be signed this summer.


ALEXIS IMPACT ON LEWY


Robert Lewandowski FC Bayern

Robert Lewandowski's future at Bayern Munich will be directly influenced by the German club's pursuit of Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez, claims The Sun .

The Polish striker is unhappy at the terms being discussed for the Chile international and news that he could be looking to move on has alerted Manchester United and Chelsea.


ARSENAL REJECT £4M SZCZESNY BID


Wojciech Szczesny Roma

Arsenal have turned down a £4million offer from Juventus for goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, according to The Sun .

Szczesny spent last season on loan at Roma, and Arsenal are holding out for £13m for the Poland international, who has a year left on his contract and is viewed by Juventus as the long-term replacement for Gianluigi Buffon.


ARSENAL TELL BARCA: HANDS OFF BELLERIN


Hector Bellerin Arsenal 2016

Arsenal have reportedly told Barcelona that defender Hector Bellerin is not for sale, according to the Independent .

The Catalans have identified the defender as their top choice to become their new right-back but the Gunners are adamant that Bellerin will not be allowed to leave in the summer window.

Alexis Sanchez Arsenal Premier League 051317

Real Madrid are considering a summer move for Alexis Sanchez as a possible replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, according to Don Balon .
