Arsenal transfer news: The latest & LIVE player rumours from the Emirates Stadium

Arsenal's chances of keeping Alexis Sanchez in north London may have taken a further hit with the Mirror's revelation that Paris Saint-Germain have joined the battle for the forward.

Long linked with Pep Guardiola's Manchester City, the Chilean has so far refrained from signing a new deal with the Gunners.

But the saga has taken a further twist with the newspaper's assertion that PSG have contacted his agent, after interest from Bayern cooled.

Crystal Palace are keen to bolster their squad with the acquisition of Jack Wilshere on a temporary basis from Arsenal, according to the Sun.

The England midfielder has struggled desperately with injuries, which have pushed him down the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium.

And after spending 2016-17 at Bournemouth, he could well go out again on loan as Palace seek to complete a deal on a player they lost out to the Cherries last time round.

Monaco have told Arsenal in no uncertain terms that they will have to break their transfer record should they wish to sign Thomas Lemar, according to the Mirror.

The French club have seen several of the players who led them to a Champions League semi-final leave already in the close-season.

But unless Arsene Wenger is willing to shell out £80 million for Lemar, smashing the record set last month with the arrival of Alexandre Lacazette, they are unlikely to close a deal for the winger.

Arsenal are preparing a £45 million bid for Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk, according to the Daily Express .

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is keen to keep improving his squad ahead of the new season, and is also targeting Celtic striker Moussa Dembele to replace Alexis Sanchez.

Arsenal are considering a move for Celtic star Moussa Dembele should Alexis Sanchez leave north London, according to the Daily Star.

The Gunners reportedly know they can’t afford to turn down a £50 million offer for Alexis, and manager Arsene Wenger has targeted Dembele as his top choice to replace the Chilean.

Arsenal are set to offer Alexis Sanchez a new deal worth £275,000 a week to convince him to stay in north London, according to The Sun.

Alexis has indicated he wants to leave Arsenal in search of Champions League football, but Gunners manager Arsene Wenger reportedly remains confident the Chile attacker will stay.

Arsenal have turned to Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata in their bid to replace Alexis Sanchez, according to Don Balon.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger believes Morata could form a deadly partnership with new signing Alexandre Lacazette but faces competition from Chelsea and AC Milan.

Everton are planning a £30 million move for Arsenal forward Theo Walcott, according to the Sunday People .

The England international has fallen down the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium, and Ronald Koeman is keen to bring him in to add some pace to his squad.

Monaco winger Thomas Lemar has demanded the club allow him to join Arsenal, according to the Daily Star .

The Gunners are set to make a £45 million offer for the France international, but the Ligue 1 champions are worried about losing too many players this summer.

Arsenal are the latest club to show an interest in signing Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic, according to Gianluca Di Marzio .

The Serbia international has been linked with Manchester United and Juventus, with the Blues willing to sell as they bring in Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco.

Arsene Wenger is even willing to use Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as part of the deal as he looks to improve on a fifth-placed finish last season.

Sampdoria have inquired as to the availability of Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere, according to Sky Sport Italia .

The Gunners are likely to want around £9 million for the England international, with him no longer in Arsene Wenger's first-team plans.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has given the green light for Chris Smalling to be sold during the transfer window, reports The Sun .

Mourinho has already signed Victor Lindelof from Benfica this summer and is keen to further improve his defensive options before the end of August.

That is likely to spell the end of Smalling’s seven-year United career, with Arsenal and West Brom among the clubs to be linked with a bid for the England international.

West Ham have ended their interest in signing Olivier Giroud after learning they are not the Arsenal striker’s first choice, according to Sky Sports.

Giroud has been linked with a move away from Arsenal following the club record signing of Alexandre Lacazette, and West Ham had been keen to sign the France international.

However, with Everton, Borussia Dortmund and Marseille also reportedly chasing Giroud, the Hammers have pulled out of the race.

Borussia Dortmund will look to sign Olivier Giroud as a replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should the striker depart for Chelsea, reports the Mirror.

The France international is not confident of his place at Arsenal after the arrival of Alexandre Lacazette and may now be keen on a move away from the Gunners.

Dortmund would join Everton, West Ham and AC Milan in the race to sign Giroud.

Arsenal are looking to land West Ham's promising young talent Domingos Quina, according to Sky Sports.

The 17-year-old joined from Chelsea last season and took part in the club's Europa League campaign early on.

A series of strong showing at the U-19 Euros have the Gunners, who made a contract offer to Quina before his move to West Ham, once again looking to sign the youngster.

Barcelona have ditched plans to sign Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin during the summer transfer window, according to Sport .

Bellerin had previously been Barca’s leading target to fill the right-back role next season, but Arsenal were unwilling to sell the Spaniard.

And, with new coach Ernesto Valverde reportedly having doubts over Bellerin’s physical and technical capabilities, Barca have decided against pursuing a €40 million deal.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger met with French prodigy Kylian Mbappe on June 14 in Paris, according to France Football.

The French manager tried to convince the Monaco teenager that London would be the best home for him in a meeting that lasted more than three hours, appealing to the 18-year-old to follow in the footsteps of French legend Thierry Henry.

Paris Saint-Germain coach Unai Emery met with Kylian Mbappe’s entourage last weekend in an attempt to convince the Monaco striker to move to the Parc des Princes, reports L'Equipe .

Arsenal and Real Madrid are among the clubs trying to sign the teenage sensation, but PSG are determined to win the race for the France international.

Club president Nasser al-Khelaifi and sporting director Antero Henrique met Mbappe’s entourage earlier in July, and now Emery has made his pitch to persuade the 18-year-old to choose PSG.

Arsenal are ready to battle Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City for Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk, claims The Sun .

The Dutch centre-half has emerged as one of the most sought-after talents in the Premier League, with big-money bids being readied from across the division.

Manchester United passed up the opportunity to move for Alexandre Lacazette before landing Romelu Lukaku, according to The Guardian .

Having decided against making a move for the Lyon striker, the France international ended up completing a £46 million transfer to Arsenal.

Sporting Lisbon midfielder William Carvalho is expected to complete a move to the Premier League this summer, according to A Bola .

Carvalho has regularly been linked with a transfer to England, and Sporting are now prepared to sell the 25-year-old after reinforcing their squad.

West Brom have seen a €20 million offer rejected, while Arsenal, Manchester City, Newcastle and Tottenham are all reportedly willing to bid in the region of €30m.

Marseille have made in-demand Celtic striker Moussa Dembele their No.1 summer transfer target, according to Sky Sports .

Dembele proved a revelation during his debut season at Celtic last term and was wanted by Chelsea during the January transfer window.

Arsenal, Everton, Liverpool and Manchester United have also previously shown an interest in Dembele, with Marseille likely to face fierce competition for the Frenchman if they make a concerted move.

Arsenal have told Manchester City they want £80 million for Alexis Sanchez, according to the Sunday Mirror .

The Gunners have resigned themselves to losing the Chile international to their Premier League rivals, but City's initial offer of £50m falls well short of their valuation.

Arsene Wenger has marked Inter midfielder Marcelo Brozovic as a summer target as he looks to reinforce his Arsenal midfield ahead of the new season, according to a report from ESPN .

The Gunners have already added Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette to their squad, though Wenger is keen on strengthening his options in the middle of the park.

Arsenal have agreed personal terms of £90,000 a week with Thomas Lemar, but have still to reach a deal with Monaco for the winger, according to The Sun .

A second bid of €45 million for Lemar has reportedly been rejected by Monaco, who are under no pressure to cash in on the 21-year-old.
