According to Spanish news outlet Diario Gol, Arsenal and Premier League rivals Arsenal are both interested in signing Real Madrid’s highly talented attacking midfielder Marcos Asensio this summer.
Asensio is one of the brightest young prospects in the Spanish game. The 21-year-old was one of the stars of the under 21 European Championships, where his national team finished runners-up to Germany.
Despite being highly rated, the versatile youngster has understandable had problems getting into the Los Blancos starting line-up. Last season he did make his mark in the Spanish capital and scored in Real’s 4-1 win over Juventus in the Champions League. .......Read more here.....

The Daily Mirror are reporting that Arsenal are set to launch a world-record £125million bid for Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe this summer.
The story seems like a fairytale from a journalist with too much time on his hands or after a few too many drinks. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger hates to part with money, so for the French boss to part with that sort of money for one player, albeit a highly rated player seems ridiculous.

Alexis Sanchez is no doubt Arsenal’s star player, but the situation over his future with the club is now becoming tiresome. The Chilean has just a year left on his contract and there are no signs of him signing a new deal with the Gunners.
Last season Sanchez scored 30 goals in 51 appearances in all competitions for Arsenal. The 28-year-old would be very hard to replace, especially taking into account the fact the Gunners are likely to receive a smaller fee as the months on his contract tick down.

So there we have it veteran Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has signed a two-year extension with the club. It was hardly a surprise was it? There was always a feeling the Frenchman was not yet ready to leave the north London club.
As I stated in yesterday’s article Wenger is part of the furniture at Arsenal. Unfortunately to me he is like that old comfy chair that used to be lovely when it was new but its springs are now sticking out cursing discomfort in the backside.
Whether Arsenal fans like it or not, the Frenchman will probably be the Gunners boss for the next two years. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal suffered three defeats and a draw in five Premier League games in March and the start of April which left their top-four hopes in jeopardy, and Wenger believes the way they were dumped out of Europe by Bayern Munich was reason for the dramatic dip in form. .......Read more here.....
