I mean, our choices are to talk about it or ignore it until we get a more reliable source, but with the speed of the news cycle these days, ignoring it means you would probably go elsewhere for your Arsenal news, right? The player is in desperate need of some game time to revive his fallen career, and given Chelsea's frustration of buying lack of players, he could well be arriving at Stamford bridge in the weeks to follow. Antonio Conte is now shifting his focus to Colombian midfielder James Rodriguez, and has also been given the green signal by Real Madrid and Zinedine Zidane.

Olivier Giroud is capable of partnering record signing Alexandre Lacazette at Arsenal, claims former Lyon boss Remi Garde.

"If he's selected, he has to perform and, if he doesn't show commitment, he won't play".

The Gunners were finalising paperwork on Lacazette's transfer on Wednesday morning after the striker passed a medical at the London Colney club's training base on Tuesday.

The German defender enjoyed a solid debut campaign in English football, making 37 appearances in all competitions for the club.

Arsene Wenger means business this summer.

Arsenal have reportedly decided to continue with their pursuit of AS Monaco winger Thomas Lemar. A superb distributor of the ball.

"That is something that Arsene could do with these two players".

The Monaco hierarchy have built a reputation for being wily negotiators and with three years left on Lemar's contract, they are under no pressure to sell one of their most potent attacking threats.

The report, from Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, details how Suning are ready to move for the 28-year-old after Bayern Munich pulled out of the race. I'm really happy he's come to the club.

The instinctive centre-forward that Arsenal have longed for ever since RVP's departure.
