GREEN LIGHT ON BENZEMA
Arsene Wenger has been given the green-light to smash Arsenal's transfer record and sign Karim Benzema from Real Madrid.
According to the Daily Mail, the Gunners are prepared to pay £45 million for the France international, plus £150,000-a-week in wages.
Wenger is reportedly desperate to sign the 27-year-old - believing the striker is the man required to turn Arsenal into genuine title contenders this season.
Olivier Giroud started up front and failed to produce in the 2-0 opening day defeat to West Ham.
WENGER REJECTED OXFORD
It has been revealed that Wenger declined the opportunity to sign West Ham youngster Reece Oxford.
Oxford became the second youngest debutant in Premier League history as he impressed at the Emirates.
It could have been so different as Oxford was brought to the attention of Wenger and a number of other Premier League managers following his performances for the Hammers at youth level.
The Telegraph are claiming that is the reason the Arsenal boss neglected to praise the youngster following his performance.
