Arsenal transfer news: European giants want Sanchez, Gunners to nab Chelsea youngster in January and more - 3rd November 2017
Bayern Munich rekindle interest in Alexis Sanchez
The Bundesliga giants were interested in the Chilean in the summer before pulling out due to the high price quoted for the player. However, injuries to Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller, coupled with the fact that Sanchez is out of contract next summer has changed Bayern's stance.
ESPN reports that they will bid for the 28-year old once the January window opens. Bayern Munich believe that the player will be available for a lower price with only six months remaining on his contract.
Arsenal would definitely prefer selling to a foreign club than strengthening a rival in Manchester City. However, the decision could finally come down to Alexis Sanchez as Pep Guardiola will match any bid for the attacker.
Arsenal to sign Charly Musonda in January
The Chelsea midfielder has been starved of playing time at Stamford Bridge and recently voiced his frustration on Instagram. Musonda has made only two starts so far and at 21 years of age, he needs to play more regularly.
Now, The Mirror reports that Arsene Wenger is interested in the player and would like to add him in January. The impending departures of Mesut Ozil and Sanchez are set to create space for midfielders in the squad which will allow Musonda to play more.
The Gunners believe a €21 million bid will get the player in January but it remains to be seen whether Antonio Conte will sell to a direct rival.
Gunners looking to sign Miguel Almiron
The Paraguay international plies his trade in the Major League Soccer (MLS) at Atlanta United and The Mirror report that Arsenal are interested in the player. Meanwhile, Italian newspaper Calciomercato claim that Inter Milan and Newcastle United are also monitoring the midfielder.
The 23-year old attracted the attention of these European clubs with good performances in the MLS and the papers suggest that Atlanta are willing to sell the player for £15 million.
Signing players from the MLS is a rare occurrence in the Premier League. So, the news should be taken with a pinch of salt as it is doubtful whether or not Arsenal will pursue the interest.
