The Russia international has previously been linked with moves to Tottenham, Manchester United and PSG. Kokorin scored ten goals in all competitions last season, including two in eight Champions League appearances.

Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck has been out of action for nearly five months with a mysterious knee injury that was misdiagnosed initially. The England international, 24, picked up the injury back in April, and was expected to return after a matter of weeks according to his manager Arsene Wenger.

The ‘Karim Benzema to Arsenal’ rumour has once again flared-up, with the Telegraph publishing a story which states that Gunners have chartered a jet for the French striker to travel to England to have a medical in England.

The claims of Benzema heading to Arsenal are seemingly coming from Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli, who seems to enjoy participating in what has become an ongoing speculation about the Real Madrid striker.

The 27-year-old has been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium since before he made the move to Spain with Real Madrid from Lyon. Despite the constant rumours, he remains a Los Blancos player.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has rubbished claims that German playmaker Mesut Ozil could leave the club this summer. The veteran Frenchman’s comments came after Ozil was linked with a move to Turkish club Besiktas.

Talking to the media on Friday about Ozil, Wenger said: “He is completely committed to the club. He is focused on getting results.”


Erol Kaynar, a former Besiktas board member had claimed the Turkish clubs chief transfer negotiator Erdan Torunogullari had talked to Ozil’s agent about a move to the Turkish top-flight club. The claim has been swatted away by the North London club.

Posted on August 20, 2015 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Star, Arsenal have been told they will have to £35million for PSG and Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani if they want to nab the striker this summer.

The Gunners have recently been linked with a move for Cavani, with a deal for Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema now looking less likely. The 28-year-old is definitely not a bad alternative to the French international.

Cavani has been prolific in both the Italian top-flight and French top-flight in recent years and definitely has the sort of predatory instincts that the Gunners need in a striker.

Should Arsenal make a swoop for Monaco star? 1

Posted on August 20, 2015 by David Nugent

According to L’Equipe and the Daily Express, Monaco have turned down a bid of around £12.9million from Ligue One rivals PSG for reported Arsenal target Layvin Kurzawa.

The 22-year-old is highly-rated and is believed to be a transfer target of both the Gunners and Premier League rivals Manchester United. Monaco value the 22-year-old at £18million and will only listen to exceptional options for the left-back.

Monaco are second favourites to win the French Ligue One title at odds of 11/1 this season, but noises coming out of France suggest Kurzawa is looking for a move to a bigger club this summer.

Arsenal 11/10 to sign Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema this summer 0

Posted on August 20, 2015 by Crippy Cooke

Bookmakers have cut odds for Arsenal to sign Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema during this season’s summer transfer window following a flurry of bets in the last 48 hours.

News broke of a £48M bid made from the Gunners for the former Olympique Lyonnais striker on Wednesday, but given there’s been little talk from either side suggesting such a deal is even in the pipeline, many aren’t convinced at the rumours.

This summer, Real have been more focused on signing Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea than letting other players go. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is unlikely to smash the club‘s transfer record to sign a position he doesn’t think Arsenal lack in.

According to the Metro, Arsenal are close to sealing the signing of PSG’s Uruguayan international striker Edinson Cavani. A bid has not yet been put in, but reports in Spain suggest that the Gunners are going to turn their attentions to signing Cavani, after frustration in their bids to sign Real Madrid striker Karim Benzema.
