According to the Express, Arsenal are set to renew their interest in Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno, who reportedly has a release clause of £22million in his contract.

Leno has often been linked with a move to the Gunners, as Czech Republic goalkeeper Petr Cech is starting to look his age. The former Chelsea stopper produced a number of unconvincing displays last season.

The 36-year-old’s position as Arsenal number one is now looking very vulnerable, with Leno looking like a very viable target.

According to Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis, keeping Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez this summer is a statement of ambition from the north London club. The pair both have less than 12 months left on their contracts in north London.

In truth, though, Arsenal would have sold Sanchez to Manchester City if they could have signed French winger Thomas Lemar on deadline day.

Gazidis is quoted by the Express as saying: “It was a clear statement of our ambitions and should help refute suggestions we are just about the money. That is simply nonsense.”

According to the Express, Premier League champions Leicester and Liverpool are set to do battle for Arsenal England midfield Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. The British tabloid also claims that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger will consider selling the former-Southampton star.

Not good enough

There is too much talk about potential at Arsenal. The likes of Calum Chambers, Jack Wilshere, even Theo Walcott are all waiting to fulfil their potential. Unfortunately there has to be a point when potential is not enough for a player to stay at a club.

According to the Express, Arsenal could be set for a triple swoop for young defenders Lucas Hernandez of Atletico Madrid, Ben Chilwell of Leicester and Ryan Sessegnon of Fulham.

All three are highly-rated youngsters, but Arsenal fans will be worried that boss Arsene Wenger will not be signing established players ready for the first team this summer.

Highly-rated youngsters

Lucas Hernandez has emerged this season in the Atletico Madrid team and has appeared in the Champions League when Diego Simeone’s team had personnel issues. The 20-year-old looked at home against top opposition, despite his tender years and it looks like he could be a star of the future.
