Arsenal are preparing a £20m bid for RB Leipzig Emil Forsberg. The attacking midfielder has been in sensational form this season in the Bundesliga as manager Arsene Wenger looks to refresh the team next season.
Wenger wants Ox stay
Arsene Wenger has called on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to stay at the club for the next ten years. Wenger sees Oxlade-Chamberlain as a big player who can help lead the club forward and take the mantle from star players such as Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil. Wenger added that he also sees Aaron Ramsey as another player who needs to take charge of the future of the club.
Pep wants Alexis
Pep Guardiola has declared his interest in Alexis Sanchez and suggested Arsenal have caused their own problems by failing to renew the Chilean’s contract. Rumours are suggesting Manchester City are close to securing a £50m deal for the forward, but whether Arsenal would be willing to sell to another Premier League club is debatable. Certainly a more viable team to sell to, if Sanchez does leave would be Paris Saint-Germain who are also interested in the Arsenal forward.
Jankto rumour is back
The Mirror are reporting Arsenal are stepping up their interest in Udinese midfielder Jakub Jankto. Arsenal have been scouting the player for a year and seems they have been impressed by the 21-year-old, who has been dubbed the ‘new Rosicky’. He has scored five goals this season and has a release clause of £6m, which should certainly tempt the club.
Alexis Sanchez turned peacemaker in training after a row broke out between Granit Xhaka and Nacho Monreal. It is unknown what the row was about but Sanchez tried to calm the situation down. Sanchez himself was seen laughing and enjoying training a short time after. A little bit of bite on the training ground has never hurt any team and maybe we are seeing that the players do care about playing for the club.
Gazidis to stay
Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis is set to stay at the club despite possible multi-million pound offers from America. Gazidis name is being linked to the US Soccer Federation president role once Sunil Gulati steps down, however it seems he is keen to stay on in his role at Arsenal with a view of overseeing the Arsene Wenger transition.
We have had Tony Adams last week and now we have Hector Bellerin’s hair. In a word…..why!
