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.

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.

The Gunners have made an enquiry over the defender, but are yet to make a formal bid at this stage.

Arsenal had a bid for Evans rebuffed by West Brom last year but Arsene Wenger wants to sign a centre-half after his side’s calamitous start to the season and could look to muscle in on City’s efforts to sign the player.

West Brom want at least £30 million for Evans and are opposed to sanctioning his sale unless his valuation is met.

They have already rejected two offers from Leicester City first was a £10m Bid and report suggest they have also rejected a £21m bid for the 29-year-old.

However, City are expected to make a third offer worth up to £30 million for Evans today but Arsenal are understood to have enquired about the former Manchester United defender last night.

Reports from the British media claims Arsenal are on the verge of agreeing to a deal to sell Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain this summer.

The Blues had a bid accepted by Arsenal on Monday which will see it rise above £35m with add-ons and it is understood they moved quickly as they fear Liverpool in the background.

It now remains to be seen whether Liverpool will try and make a last-ditch bid but Chelsea know that there have been strong overtures from Anfield to try and get him.

The Gunners acted swiftly to sign Sead Kolasinac on a free transfer from German side Schalke back in June.

And they then followed that up with a £52million deal for Alexandre Lacazette, who arrived from Ligue 1 giants Lyon.

However, Arsene Wenger knows more players are needed if the Gunners are to finally end their agonising 14-year wait for the country’s biggest prize.

Nice’s Jean-Michel Seri has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirate stadium this summer.

Now, Jean-Michel Seri has issued issued a ‘come get me plea’ with Arsenal name as one of the clubs he’d like to play for via Sport Witness

“I want to be optimistic and think that there are still options,” Seri told Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo. “Let the two clubs talk quietly again and come to an agreement.

“We are not talking about any club, where you are going to sign for money. I want to sign for a big European club, like Juventus, PSG, Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool… For example, Roma has made several offers.”

“not acceptable ” Wenger Needs To Leave, He Has No Business With The Club

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger giving his own take in the 4-0 defeat at Anfield on Sunday; he revealed his side’s performance is “not acceptable ” and admitted they had been an “easy Opponent” for Jurge Klopp side.

The Gunners were swept aside at Anfield in a way that was embarrassing at times as Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and substitute Daniel Sturridge got on the scoresheet.

Asked afterwards about what had gone wrong for his side, Wenger – who opted to drop record signing Alexandre Lacazette to the bench and saw Alexis Sanchez fail to sparkle on his return to the team – said: “Everything.

“I think from the first to the last minute we were not at the level requested for such a game – not physically, not technically, not mentally were we at the level, and we were punished.

“That’s basically it. You can analyse the chances we gave away. But I just think overall the performance was not at the requested level.”

Arsenal’s previous two Premier League matches this season had seen them beat Leicester 4-3 at home, then lose 1-0 at Stoke.

And Wenger added: “I believe in our first two games we looked quite good – our performances were good.

“But today the performance was not acceptable at that level. It is true that today we were an easy opponent for Liverpool.”

When asked why the performance had been so sub-standard, the Frenchman said: “That is a question that is very difficult to answer straight away after the game.

“There are some reasons, but I don’t think I have too much to comment on that now.”

Wenger was asked about reports suggest Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain might be allowed to leave.

He said: “That is not the kind of question I can answer after a game like that. What will happen in the transfer market in the next three or four days I don’t know.”

Asked further about Shkodran Mustafi, he said: “Similar question, similar answer.”

Breaking News: Arsenal agree to sell £35m defender Shkodran Mustafi

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.

Just one year after arriving at Arsenal from Valencia for £35 million, defender Shkodran Mustafi is set to leave the Emirates for Serie A side Inter Milan.

The Italians will most likely take Mustafi on loan with a mandatory buy clause inserted into the deal. The sale of Mustafi comes on the heels of Arsenal agreeing to sell Gabriel to Valencia.

The Gunners aren’t expected to replace Mustafi with a like for like central defender this transfer window as Per Mertesacker, Rob Holding, Callum Chambers and Laurent Koscielny will be used as the team’s main centre-backs.

According to a report from the Daily Star, Mustafi hasn’t clicked with his teammates, which is why the big defender wants to leave this summer before the end of the transfer window.

It is believed Inter Milan are the front runners in signing Mustafi, Juventus are also considering a move for the German international.

While Arsenal won’t sign another central defender, the Gunners are still looking for other players to strengthen the side.

Finally, Arsene Wenger revealed the happy news for fans

sanchez 2017

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.”
