  • Arsenal stars at fan party

Attracted a lot of criticism for his displays last season, but grew in confidence throughout the campaign and has the talent to become a vital player for Arsenal over the coming seasons. He made a total of 51 appearances in all competitions for the club last season - scoring 14 goals and providing 14 assists.

Mbappe, a reported target of Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Arsenal, had a low shot saved by Jeroen Zoet early on, but that was the only chance of note for either side until the latter stages of the first half. I have made my decision, but now we wait for a response from Arsenal.

As a result, Monaco have reportedly put their foot down and are willing to refuse Lemar's move to Arsenal, much to the player's disappointment.

Wenger added that Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez had not agreed a new contract with the club, despite both the manager and his fellow players wanting him to stay. "People have big imaginations".

Monaco believe Mendy is worth more than Walker by virtue of the fact he has won a major title, performed better in the Champions League and is more than four years younger.

With a wide range of skills up his sleeve, the youngster never shies away from testing the goalkeeper from range and has a mean left foot to go with it. He is also a solid set-piece taker and that's a skill which will come in handy in England.

That's after a fresh update from the BBC's David Ornstein, who is widely considered to be the gold standard of reporting when it comes to updates out of the Emirates Staduim.

Don't you just love the transfer rumour mill, the way that just one little comment from an Arsenal groundman or an inconsequential journalist can spark a feeding frenzy amongst the fans. "It will be very hot, so we have to adapt to that as well".
