According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal are looking to offload a number of players in order to up their bid for Monaco winger Thomas Lemar. The report suggests that the French champions want a fee close to £80million for the youngster.

Always the economist Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is attempting to raise the funds by selling players, including the likes of Lucas Perez, Theo Walcott, Wojciech Szczesny, Jack Wilshere and Kieran Gibbs.

A club-record fee

Arsenal have already broken their club transfer record to sign striker Alexandre Lacazette for a fee of around £52million. However, it seems that Monaco are playing hardball over Lemar and the Gunners would need to break their transfer record to sign the youngster.

Arsenal goalkeeper Wojchiech Szczesny is set to leave Gunners for good with a permanent contract offer from Napoli already agreed, according to the reports coming from Italy.

Arsenal goalkeeper Wojcieh Szczesny is believed to be subject of increased interest from Serie A hot-shots Napoli, La Gazzetta dello Sport has learned.

Partenopei are not thoroughly satisfied with their goalkeeping options and are willing to bring the Arsenal goalkeeper to challenge Pepe Reina for the spot in goal next season.

Napoli’s back-up ‘keepers Rafael Cabral and Luigi Sepe are both likely to leave the club at the end of the season, whereas Spanish shot stopper Pepe Reina has come under heavy criticism this term due to some rather shaky performances.

Could Szczesny be on his way to Dortmund in the summer? 0

Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is reportedly the subject of interest from a number of European sides, but Borussia Dortmund are said to be leading the chase for his signature. The Polish international has been on loan with AS Roma for two seasons, but the Serie A giants may not be able to match his agreed fee of £13M to make the deal permanent.

With Petr Cech and David Ospina as first and second choice at Arsenal, Szczesny has stiff competitions for a starting place if he returns to his parent club, and the 26-year-old may well be open to a move away from the Emirates Stadium at the end of the season as a result. Juventus and Napoli are two sides keen on the goalkeeper, but perhaps not to be an immediate regular.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal are interested in making a summer move for Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart, who is currently out on-loan at Italian club Torino.

The England number one is reportedly being considered as a replacement for Gunners number one Petr Cech, who has come in for criticism of late. My question would be is Hart an upgrade on the veteran ‘keeper and I am highly unsure.

Hart is younger than Cech, but the Czech Republic keeper is arguably more reliable than the City goalkeeper, even after his recent mistake against Chelsea.
