According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal are looking to swap wantaway Alexis Sanchez with PSG’s Julian Draxler in January. Sanchez is of course out of contract next summer and is not signing a new deal with the Gunners.
Meanwhile, Germany international Julian Draxler has found himself out of favour in Paris after the summer arrivals Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, two of the most highly-rated attacking players in Europe.
This deal would make financial sense
If we are looking at this from a purely financial sense, it would be a good deal. Arsenal will receive absolutely nothing if Sanchez leaves in the summer and it would take mega money to replace the Chilean. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has down the years scouted most of the best stars in European football. He has not signed many of them, but was highly aware of all them and came close to signing them.
The way Wenger talks sometimes it sounds like he has known the players since they were babies. For once, though, a star has claimed that Arsenal were a ‘real option for me’. That young star is France wonderkid Kylian Mbappe.
The 18-year-old joined big spending French giants PSG on deadline day on loan. He will be making a reported £165million move to the French capital next summer. However, it seems Mbappe did consider Arsenal as a viable option. .......Read more here.....

The Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger faced media on Tuesday morning shortly after arriving in Australia on a pre-season tour.
the French tactician addressed a number of topics in his press conference but the media were most interested in finding out if the Gunner will be making any further signings this summer.

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.
Mbappe is hot property .......Read more here.....

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is prepared to pay around £40million for Manchester United forward Anthony Martial, according to the Daily Mail.

Out of favour at United
Martial has not quite lived up to his potential since arriving at the club from Monaco in the summer of 2015 for a fee that could eventually reach an eye-watering £57.6 million. .......Read more here.....

Here we are at the beginning of another summer at Arsenal under veteran French boss Arsene Wenger. Last season was a poor one in terms of the Premier League, as the Gunners failed to finish in the top-four for the first time in a decade.
However, the Gunners also won the FA Cup for the third time in just four seasons. The FA Cup triumph has not papered over the cracks at the Emirates.
Arsenal were simply not good enough last season and the majority of the fans know that, even if Wenger likes to bury his head in the sand. .......Read more here.....
