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.

Gooners in Total Shock as Arsenal Linked with Surprise Move for Fellaini

Follow Footballbible on Facebook and Twitter 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.

Arsenal are looking to sign Manchester United’s Marouane Fellaini, according to reports.

The Belgian’s contract at Man Utd expires at the end of the season and he has rejected all attempts by his club to extend his contract.

According to a report in the Express, Utd offered Fellaini a two year contract in September but the midfielder wants to leave Old Trafford. He turned down the contract offer despite Mourinho keen on keeping him.

And Arsenal are reportedly one of the numerous Premier League clubs looking to sign the towering midfielder.

Man Utd aren’t prepared to sell Fellaini in January and are may lose him for nothing next summer, making him an attractive target to many clubs.

Inter Milan and Besiktas are also believed to be keen on the Belgian who was linked with a move to Turkey last summer.

Arsenal being one the clubs linked with Fellaini will come as a surprise to many Gooners. He doesn’t fit into our style of play and unless Wenger wants him as an ‘option B’, I don’t see any need why we should be moving for him.

Another reason why it is unlikely that Arsenal will be pursuing a move for Fellaini is that the Belgian would have clocked 30 by next summer, which doesn’t fit into our transfer policy of signing young players with good resale value.

Fellaini is rarely a starter at Manchester United and will be looking to join a club where he would be guaranteed regular playing time, he won’t get that at Arsenal.

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.

Not Chelsea But Liverpool, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Transfer Saga Continues

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

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

The England international have reportedly rejected a £180k a week contract extension deal with the Gunners insisting he wants a move away from the Emirate Stadium.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte had made it clear he wanted to add further to his squad before the transfer window closes on Thursday.

But fear a late attempt from Liverpool in their bid to sign the talented wing-back.

The Mirror says Chelsea are trying to rush through a £40m deal for Oxlade-Chamberlain to fend off Liverpool.

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.

” Disgrace ” A Team With No Ambition- Club Insider lambast cowardly Arsenal

Having been torn to pieces in their humiliating 4-0 defeat at Liverpool, a similar fate befell Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal in the post-match post-mortems.

Wenger’s players were variously described as “lazy”, “pathetic”, “arrogant” and “disgraceful”, while the manager himself is under scrutiny once again just three months after signing a new two-year contract.

“Last season, I called them ‘cowards’,” former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher said on Sky Sports after Sunday’s match.

“And afterwards maybe I got a little bit of criticism. Maybe that’s a bit too strong and you can’t say that on live TV, but I’ll say it again –- cowards.”

“How can you play like this in a big game for so many of Arsenal’s players?” asked former Manchester United captain Gary Neville.

“Forget not turning up, forget not playing well, but just the general attitude or lack of respect for the shirt from three or four of them in not running back and not bothering is disgraceful.”

Arsenal great Thierry Henry, analysing the game for Sky Sports, confessed: “At one point I wanted to leave. I didn’t want to watch the game anymore. It’s too much to take.”

While it was Arsenal’s defensive shortcomings that were exhibited at Anfield, the player who featured on almost all the British newspapers’ sports pages was star forward Alexis Sanchez.

The Chile international was despondency personified as he traipsed to the dugout following his 62nd-minute substitution.

After the game, he took to Instagram to post a caption-free picture of himself sitting on his haunches on the Anfield pitch and dejectedly gazing at the ground.

Sanchez has been repeatedly linked with a move to Manchester City and Henry said none of Arsenal’s players could be blamed for casting glances elsewhere.

“Everything that you see on the day has been happening for the past 10 years,” said the Frenchman.

“We talk about Sanchez and is he staying, but they are not going to want to be part of this team. That is why players are not renewing their contracts. They can see something is wrong.

“The word I have used for a long time — comfort. Everyone is comfortable at Arsenal. It’s not the same pressure you have at a big club. Everything is… nice.”

The Daily Mirror branded Arsenal “a lazy, arrogant, broken team with no ideas and no hope” and directly blamed Wenger, who last led Arsenal to the title in 2004.

The Sun called Arsenal “lazy” and “pathetic” and said their torment at the hands of Firmino, Salah and Sadio Mane represented “a new low”.

The Times called it “unacceptable, unwatchable, unforgivable”.

 

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.

 

Club Desperate As £13.8m Star Signing Expected To Undergo Medicals In Coming Day

Marseille are considering a swoop for Liverpool forward Divock Origi, reports claim.

It’s believed Origi, 22, is fearful of losing his place in Belgium’s World Cup squad having been reduced to a bit-part player at Anfield.

And he’s seriously considering his options.

According to Marseille Mercato, Origi is firmly on the Ligue 1 club’s radar with a bid worth £13.8million expected in the coming days.

There’s plenty of time for Origi to rediscover his own form, but consistency rather than impact has been his issue at Anfield up until now and Solanke, along with a fit-again Daniel Sturridge, means there’s extra competition to face.

The news was also confirmed on Manchester United official website and the swede will wear the no 10 jersey this season.

“I am back to finish what I started. It was always mine and the club’s intention for me to stay. I cannot wait to get back out on that Old Trafford pitch, but I also know that I have to take my time to make sure that I am ready. I have been working hard and will continue to do so to make sure I am in the best possible condition for my return to the pitch”, the former Juve, Milan and Inter told the club’s official website.

​Ibrahimovic and Manchester United parted companies a few months ago as the Premier League giants refused to extend the player’s stay at the Old Trafford. His return to the Red side of Manchester, however, is now a deal.
