Wenger working on Arsenal transfer targets for next season


Arsenal defender, Laurent Koscielny, has said that manager Arsene Wenger has given the team a new lease of life, after switching to three at the back.

Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain have been linked with moves for the 28-year-old, who scored the extra-time victor against the former as Arsenal advanced to the FA Cup final on Sunday.

"The question is more, why would you sell him to another [Premier League] club?"

"He is an animal, always ready to kill the opponent", said a delighted Arsene Wenger after the final whistle. Sanchez and Ozil are reportedly looking for deals worth more than £250,000-a-week, which would shatter the club's wage structure.

"When you see the stands and see how big this club is - when fans go home happy I feel happy".

Oxlade-Chamberlain left the stadium on crutches but Wenger said that was "more precautionary" and "it was not for a bad injury".

"The inflation is so big that sometimes today even mathematically there can be advantages to keep a player until the end of a contract".

"I work until the last day of the season for the present and future", he added.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s NASCAR Cup Series career spanned three decades, encompassing 603 starts that saw him with a total of 26 wins. France says: "We're excited about the next chapter of his NASCAR career and wish him success for the remainder of 2017".

Oxlade-Chamberlain was awarded the Man of the Match award for his dynamic performance at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, although after the match the England worldwide conceded he was still learning the nuances of playing in Wenger's newly adopted 3-4-3 formation. At the moment he plays in a mixed role between the flank and the middle.

The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager insists perversely losing more games than he has been used to has helped him improve.

"Once he is on the run he can use his power well".

'He plays in a mixed role and he can turn up with something special in a game.

The same can be said of Mesut Ozil - who put in a real shift against City - so I expect we'll see the German global once again starting in attack with the likes of Theo Walcott and Alex Iwobi having to make do with places on the bench.
