Arsenal remain interested in signing Raheem Sterling despite City’s reluctance to sell.

The Gunners were reportedly interested in signing Sterling last summer but City rejected the proposal.

With Sanchez looking increasingly unlikely to sign a new contract at Arsenal, Wenger has begun searching for replacements and Sterling features highly on the boss’ wish list.

Guardiola has been adamant that the in-form England international will not be allowed to leave the Etihad in the January transfer window but the BBC via Sports Mole say Wenger hasn’t given up hope of signing Sterling.

The report says a switch between both clubs could be on the cards, with  Arsenal set to step up Sterling’s pursuit after being impressed with his performance this season.

However, they say we may find it difficult to convince Guardiola to let the former Liverpool man leave.

Sterling is highly rated amongst those at the corridors of the Etihad and not just Guardiola but everyone at City would want to keep him.

Wenger recently criticized Sterling after Arsenal’s loss to Man City last month for a perceived dive but apparently that hasn’t affected his interest in anyway.

Manchester City are not giving up on Alexis Sanchez just yet and has made a last-ditch attempt to sign him, according to reports.

Pep Guardiola made Sanchez his priority target at the end of last season and has been working on a deal for the Chilean but Arsenal have no intention of selling.

Wenger has publicly warned he would rather lose the forward for nothing next year than sell him this summer but City are prepared to test Arsenal’s resolve once more with a last minute bid.

According to the Guardian, City believe Sanchez wants to move to the Etihad this summer and have tabled  a huge bid to sign him.

Wenger had been adamant that Sanchez will remain at the club this season and last week confirmed that the club are strong enough to take the financial hit of the Chilean leaving for free.

But City have now launched a fresh £20m + Raheem Sterling bid in order to convince Wenger into selling Sanchez. However, the boss has asked for Sergio Aguero who City are reluctant to sell.

 Sanchez doesn’t look like his mind is here anymore, he was caught smirking on cameras during the game against Liverpool on Sunday, which doesn’t speak well of the Chilean.

On Monday, it was even claimed he handed in a transfer request but the club has quickly denied those claims. However, it is looking like he may not be an Arsenal player come September.

Gooners will be devastated should a move happen and Wenger who has received a backlash from fans in recent years will be wise to avoid such toxic environments at the club again.

Apparently, Sanchez wants to leave Arsenal but it’s something we can’t afford as a club not now when there is no time to get in a replacement.

Arsenal Agree swap Deal For Mesut Ozil With FC Barcelona star plus cash


Follow Footballbible on all social media platform to get up to date football related news from the English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and other leagues around the World. News From Chelsea, Everton, Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool.

According to reports from the Mirror, Arsenal are preparing themselves for a swap deal-plus cash with FC Barcelona. The Gunners will send playmaker Mesut Ozil to the Spanish side for winger Arda Turan along with a considerable amount of money before Thursday’s transfer window closure.

Ozil has one year left on his current Arsenal contract and the two sides have failed to come to terms on a new deal. Turan has had a disappointing spell at Barcelona since arriving from Atletico Madrid in July 2015 for £31 million. Barcelona is ready to send the Turkish flop to the Emirates along with cash for Ozil as the team look to overhaul their ageing side.

Arsenal are in the midst of  losing both Ozil and Alexis Sanchez for free next season, and the lose of both without compensation could be incredibly damaging to the club.

Chelsea are considering making a late bid for Alexis Sanchez, according to reports.

Sanchez continues to be linked with a move away from the Emirates despite Wenger insisting the Chilean will not be sold this summer.

City have been the most interested in the forward and have already had a £45m bid rejected for the striker rejected.

And while the Etihad club are still keeping tabs on Sanchez’s situation, with the hope of making a late move, Chelsea have joined them in monitoring the striker.

Chelsea were first linked with Sanchez at the end of last season but their interest cooled after City intensified their pursuit of the Chilean.

However, Transfer Market Web via the Express claim Chelsea are still interested in signing Sanchez.

The report claims Chelsea could lodge a bid for the striker before the transfer window closes on Thursday.

It is also claimed the Stamford Bridge club wI’ll face competition from Man City and Monaco who are also keen on the 28 year old.

However, all pursuit are set to fail because Wenger is not prepared to change his mind. The boss is even ready to let the striker leave for free next summer rather than sell him this window.

Although that may not make sense financially, I think it is the best thing to do. We can’t afford to strengthen our rival with such a quality player, it would be suicidal to our chances of winning the league title.

Boss determine than ever to complete deal for £140,000-a-week star

Pep Guardiola doesn’t want to give up on signing Alexis Sanchez despite Wenger’s desire to keep the 28 year old.

City has been linked with Sanchez all summer and have already had a £45m bid knocked back by Arsenal but they aren’t willing to give up on the Chilean until the transfer window closes.

Guardiola has dropped a huge hint that he still hopes to sign Sanchez from Arsenal before the transfer window closes in a few days.

Speaking in his pre match press conference ahead of this weekend’s round of Premier League fixtures, Guardiola remained coy on his club’s pursuit of Sanchez.

‘He’s an Arsenal player, like Mbappe is a Monaco player, like Johnny Evans is a West Bromwich Albion player, he said.

‘You have to ask Alexis. He’s a player and the other clubs have to talk about it. Normally I don’t talk about players from other clubs.’

Guardiola’s chances of signing Sanchez this summer is almost zero because Wenger has decided he will keep the striker at all cost, even if it means allowing him leave for nothing next year.

The club is expected to sell Chamberlain – another player who is in the final year of his contract – to Chelsea and that would strengthen Wenger’s desire to keep Sanchez.

Arsenal have lost key players to City in the past, which left Gooners fuming. The manager would be keen to avoid such happening again.

Finally, Arsene Wenger revealed the happy news for fans

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger confirmed that Alexis Sanchez is returning to pre-season training and Shkodran Mustafi will also join with him on Sunday.

28-year-old striker linked with PSG and Manchester City, but Wenger said that Sanchez is not for sale.

Wenger said ahead of their new training session: “First of all you make a really good check up of where they are, how much they have worked during their break,”

“After, once you know where you stand, they need an adjusted programme and to see how quickly you can fit them in again.

“Of course it depends as well on what is the need in the squad, what is their quality. All of these things together make your decision. Do you put them on the bench when they are not ready [to start]? It is easier to put a striker on the bench than a defender, sometimes. Because in a short period they can make an impact. We’ll see.”

Mesut Ozil has been labeled “Agent Ozil” by Arsenal fans for getting in touch with Alexis Sanchez. Arsenal beat Bayern Munich in the Shanghai pre-season friendly yesterday, but Sanchez is not with the squad as he recovers after international duty with Chile. Sanchez wants to leave for a Champion’s League club with Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain interested.
Ozil reminds Sanchez of Arsenal by tweeting him a picture of some dogs, a nod to the striker’s pet’s “Atom” and “Humber”.
Will Ozil tactics work?
More on PSG interest in Alexis Sanchez. Unai Emery has confirmed the Ligue 1 club is keen on a deal for the Chilean.

Calum Chambers on the way out?
Arsenal have also reportedly rejected a £16M bid from Crystal Palace for the transfer of unsettled defender Calum Chambers. The Gunners are said to be holding out for as much as £20m for the former Southampton man, who spent last season on loan at Middleborough after falling down the pecking order at Arsenal.
Scouting latest
Arsenal has sent a scout to watch the latest up and coming talent at the Belo Horizonte Cup. The bit cup kicks off this week and has proven to be a goldmine for spotting talent in the past. The grassroots competition brings under-17 sides together across the country, attacking the attention from numerous top scouts.
On the field
Petr Cech refused to lift the pre-season trophy Arsenal were bizarrely awarded for beating Bayern Munich on penalties in their friendly in Shanghai. After a late equalizer from Alex Iwobi made it 1-1 after 90 minutes, the Gunners beat Bayern thanks to a penalty shootout victory, with back-up goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez producing crucial saves.
Afterwards Arsenal were presented with a small trophy during a rather awkward on-pitch ceremony, but Cech refuse to lift it telling other players, this is not the trophy we lift guys.
“This is not the trophy we lift; let’s lift the big one at the end of the season. Not this one”.
But Cech cracked a smile when Arsenal’s over enthusiastic players lifted it anyway.

Arsenal Postpone Ozil and Sanchez Contract Negotiations Until Summer


Arsene Wenger has revealed that a decision has been taken with mutual consent to hold off contract negotiations with Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez until the summer. Both players out of contract in the summer of 2018. However, advanced negotiations are yet to take place. This has put the future of both players under a cloud of doubt. Ozil has previously stated that his future at Arsenal would depend on the presence of Wenger at the club. Sanchez, meanwhile, has been silent on the issue amidst increasing rumours linking him with a move to China.

There is plenty of uncertainty surrounding the club. A run of four defeats in the last five league matches has seen place Arsenal at 3/1 to finish in the Premier league top four.

Wenger’s future at the club has become increasingly difficult to predict in recent weeks. A string of poor results in the last couple of months has led to the club not just dropping out of the Champions League at the last 16 stage, but top four now looks a major doubt following the 3-1 loss against West Brom during the weekend. A lot of fans have been calling for Wenger to leave the club. In the past, the manager has retained the faith of the board and fans even during a difficult time. It is clearly not the case this time around.

Even Wenger’s contract is up for renewal in the summer. After the loss against West Brom, the manager revealed that he has made a decision on his future and that supporters will know about the same soon.

The decision to postpone the contract talks of key players like Ozil and Sanchez is something that raises further concern about the club and the direction taken by Arsenal. Both players will be able to leave for a free in the summer of 2018. Wenger has previously said that the club would rather keep the players until the summer rather than sell them for a lower fee in the upcoming summer.

It would not be surprising to see fans’ upheaval increase even further following this news.

Juventus is luring Alexis Sanchez with a swap deal


Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez, who is one of the super Arsenal players, is being monitored by the top teams like Chelsea, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain and Chinese Super League teams.

28-years-old Arsenal player has only 18 months left on his current contract and yet to sign a new contract with The Gunners. There is a negotiation is speculated with the fee of £280,000-a-week to extend his contract.

Arsene Wenger brought this goal-machine from Barcelona to North London and strengthens his squad’s attacking force.

TuttoSport, a Turin based newspaper, stated that Serie A leaders Juventus are preparing a swap deal for Sanchez with Miralem Pjanic, who is bought from Roma.


After losing Paul Pogba for world record transfer fee with Manchester United, Juventus are focusing the Champions League this year and building their team to compete with Champions League giants Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Real Madrid.

If they team up Sanchez with Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain, Juventus believes their front line would be a strong one to make an impact on Champions League.

The sensational Pjanic, who is one of the top summer targets by Wenger, also will be a perfect player for The Gunners and he can fit with Arsene Wenger’s unique game plan.
