Juventus had a bid for the player rejected by his current club earlier in the summer, and their general manager believes it would take an astronomical fee for them to even listen.

He said: “If another club makes an astronomical offer for a player, for the good of the club you must always at least consider it."


Mathieu Flamini is refusing to leave the club unless he receives a fee, having been told he has no future at the club, according to reports.

Turkish side Galatasaray and Ligue 1 Bastia are reported to be interested in the services of the 31-year-old.

The French midfielder has made 68 appearances since returning to Arsenal in 2013, but has found his first-team chances limited since the emergence of Francis Coquelin. 

Flamini is currently earning £40,000-a-week and has 12 months left on his current deal, meaning Arsenal may have to pay up to £2 million to get him off the books.


Arsenal are plotting a £22million bid for Sevilla star Grzegorz Krychowiak, after sending scouts to watch him in last nights Super Cup final.

The midfielder has a release clause in his current deal and, according to reports, the Arsenal boss is prepared to match the fee to bring Krychowiak to the Emirates.

It was heavily reported Wenger wanted to bring the Polish international to North London in the January transfer, but a deal never materialised. 

The 25-year-old is seen as a perfect rival for Francis Coquelin as Wenger looks to add more bite to his midfield.
