In what would be considered a major coup for Arsenal – and such a trademark Arsene Wenger signing – the London-based club are being heavily linked with Lyon winger Rachid Ghezzal.

Former Everton target and soon-to-be a free agent, as his deal with the French Ligue 1 outfit is expiring at the end of the season, could go on to fulfill his wish of moving to ‘a bigger club’, which was the main reason he rejected an agreed £12 million move to Goodison.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger wasted little time and effort dwelling into the latest transfer rumours dealing with Gunners captain Per Mertesacker and West Ham want-away star Dimitri Payet.

Germany international defender has been out with his knee injury since preseason and his return to training has last week sparked rumours linking Mertesacker with a loan move away from the Emirates.
