Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa is close to a move to the Italian Serie A, with the Brazilian is 1/6 to join Juventus this summer. According to The Sun, the two European giants have reportedly agreed a £35m deal. But given Arsenal are desperate for attacking reinforcements due to the players potentially leaving ahead of the new season, why didn’t the Gunners try to sign Costa?

The 26-year-old lost his place in the Bayern side last season after a fallout with the club over his contract. He made just 23 Bundesliga appearances under manager Carlo Ancelotti, scoring and creating seven goals. Signed from Ukrainian side Shakhtar in 2015, Costa was an ever-present in his maiden season in the Bundesliga but he’s set to move on.

According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez wants to leave the north London club because his teammates are not performing to the best of their ability.

The North London club appear to be coming to terms with Alexis Sanchez leaving the club at the end of the season as there are currently no indications that the Chilean superstar is prepared to commit himself to a new contract at Arsenal.

In recent weeks, months and even years people have questioned Arsene Wenger’s position as Arsenal boss. Those questions have once again raised after the Gunners 5-1 hammering at home to Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.

The defeat at the Emirates Stadium meant that the Gunners suffered a 10-2 aggregate loss against the German champions. Wenger quite rightly talked about the official’s poor decisions against Bayern, but he needs to take a share of the responsibility.

However, the players do not seem to be getting the criticism they deserve for the Gunners current poor run of form.
