Arsenal News Transfer Rumours

After failing to win the Premier League title for the thirteenth year, and, finishing outside the top four for the first time in over twenty years, Arsenal are reportedly ready to bolster their attacking threat to strengthen their chances of winning the title next season, and push back into the Champions League places.

According to a variety of reports, Arsène Wenger wants to significantly improve his attacking options with potential deals for AS Monaco duo Kylian Mbappé and Thomas Lemar along with Olympique Lyonnais striker Alexandre Lacazette.

Interestingly, the club has already had two bids rejected for two of the players, having seen their record-breaking £100m bid (including add-ons) for Mbappé and £55m bid (including add-ons) for Lacazette rejected.

According to the club, the hope of key-player Alexis Sánchez renewing his contract appears significantly slim and has been rumoured to have agreed to deals with Bayern Munich and Manchester City. With only one year remaining on his contract, the Gunners may have to offload the Chilean to bolster their transfer funds. In addition to this, the club are also prepared to let go of other players such as Olivier Giroud and Lucas Pérez in the hopes of signing at least one of the trio.

Other Arsenal squad players such as David Ospina, Kieran Gibbs, and, Jack Wilshere have all also been linked with moves away from the club in the transfer window, and any departures are said to benefit the overall budget the London club has ready to spend. Wenger and Ivan Gazidis have been working on possible replacements for these players since last season concluded, with some of the former bids enlisting proving that for once Arsenal fans could be in store for a very special summer.
