From Lacazette to Lemar, here are seven Arsenal stories that you don’t want to miss today.
The rumour mill has been spinning into overdrive already and it’s only Monday.
7. Alexandre Lacazette medical this week
Keeping on top of all the latest Lacazette updates is like trying to stand on quick-sand.
The story is developing quickly and it seems as if a deal is set to go ahead this week with a medical rumoured to be taking place on Tuesday or Wednesday.
Arsenal are said to be paying Lyon £52m.
6. Riyad Mahrez to sign for Gunners this week
Like Lacazette, the Mahrez to Arsenal story is developing at lightning-quick speed.
The Leicester forward is reportedly set to sign for the Gunners this week for £35m.
5. Kieran Gibbs linked with Newcastle
Contrary to previous reports, Gibbs could leave Arsenal for just £8m this summer – almost half of what the Gunners were originally rumoured to be demanding.
Newcastle are the latest club reportedly interested.
4. Arsenal to bid record-breaking amount for Mbappe
One minutes it’s off, then it’s on. The latest update on the Kylian Mbappe story is that Arsenal are willing to bid £125m for the 18-year-old Monaco striker and blow Real Madrid out the water.
However, other reports claim that the Gunners are set to end their pursuit of the France international (again), as they’re instead choosing just to focus on Lacazette and Thomas Lemar.
3. Thomas Lemar’s dad
Lemar‘s dad has supposedly said that he doesn’t want his son to sign for Arsenal because he wants the 21-year-old to stay and develop at Monaco, which is something the winger himself apparently said recently.
With the World Cup next year, Mr. Lemar wants Thomas to have the best possible chance of making the France squad.
Other outlets are saying that Lemar is trying to push a move through, despite reports last week saying completely the opposite.
2. Olivier Giroud linked with everyone
Not only is Giroud being linked with West Ham, Marseille and Lyon, he’s now also being linked with a £20m move to Everton this summer as the Toffees look for a Romelu Lukaku replacement.
1. Jens is back, back again
Jens Lehmann could be set for a third stint at Arsenal. This time, as a goalkeeping coach.
Apparently, the Gunners are in talks with the legend to bring him back to north London and kick some of our players into gear.
