Arsenal consider move for Celtic forward Moussa Dembele?

Arsenal consider move for Celtic forward Moussa Dembele?

Arsenal's summer will be classed as a success or failure depending on the outcome of Alexis Sanchez's future. Sanchez had said that he wants to leave the English club to be able to realise his dream of playing and winning the Champions League.

Wenger also believes that Dembele could replace Sanchez at the club, but he is also looking to boost his defence as he also prepares a bid for Southampton's Holland worldwide Virgil van Dijk. We've embraced him, everyone has embraced him at the club, so I am confident.

Arsenal could recoup in-excess of £50million for Sanchez, who can start negotiating a free transfer move to an overseas club from January 1. "Unfortunately we are not the only ones to decide the pace of the transfer market". Wenger is also refusing to rule out Sanchez signing a bumper new deal. Sanchez wants a deal in-excess of £300,000-per-week.

Alexis grabbed the headlines once again this week following comments he made in South America, where he reiterated his desire to play in the Champions League, but he stated that the ultimate decision lies with Arsenal- and the Gunners intend on keeping his services.

If Arsenal feel they have no other option but to sell Sanchez, they will look to send him overseas.

He said: "I do not know what he said, we are no longer involved".

Meanwhile, Mathieu Debuchy is set to join Nice, while Wojciech Szczesny is close to signing for Juventus in a £10million move.
