According to the Mirror, Arsenal have entered the race to sign Manchester City attacking-midfielder Jadon Sancho.

Tottenham are believed to have had an approach rebuffed for the coveted youngster.

Sancho, who is being monitored by Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Bundesliga side RB Leipzig, was a standout performer at the U17 European Championships in May, winning the Golden Player award – previously won by Toni Kroos, Wayne Rooney and Cesc Fabregas.

Arsenal’s Chilean superstar Alexis Sanchez is demanding a wage packet of around £400,000 to sign a new deal with the Gunners, according to the Daily Mirror.

As we all know Sanchez has just a year left on his current contract to run and speculation has been rife that he wishes to leave the club.

However, the Mirror claims that Sanchez is willing to sit out the last year of his deal at the Emirates and leave on a free transfer. He would then be able to collect a massive signing on fee with his new club.

Liverpool have made a direct enquiry about Arsenal winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, according to the Daily Mirror.
The club from Merseyside have been linked continually with a move for the England international in recent months.

It seems they have now made their move for the former Southampton star, who is rated in the £25million-bracket.

May be willing to sell this summer

The Mirror report claims that Arsenal are reluctant to sell Oxlade-Chamberlain this summer. However, the midfielder’s contract has just a year left to run and to avoid losing him for nothing the Gunners may well sell him this summer.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has his pick of clubs this summer, with Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea reportedly keen on his signature. The England international, who has just 12 months left on his current deal, looks set to leave Arsenal as a result of a lack of playing time in his favourite position, but where will he go?

Liverpool still lead the race for the midfielder, with manager Jurgen Klopp a big fan of Oxlade-Chamberlain. The Arsenal player’s industry and creativity would see him fit into the Reds side and be a useful player for their Champions League campaign in 2017/18. And with Arsenal out of the prestigious competition, while having reportedly not offered a formal deal to the 23-year-old, it’s hard to see him remaining at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger denied that Chile international could be sold to Premier League rivals, but Manchester City are prepared to test his resolve by an enticing offer.

The Citizens are reportedly ready to submit a £50 million that would also include Belgium international Jason Denayer in order to convince Wenger to sell his most prized asset.

Arsenal kept their hopes alive of securing Champions League football on Sunday with a victory over a much-changed Manchester United team. There also seems to be little to fear from the Gunners remaining fixtures.
