The latest Arsenal transfer news and rumours from across the British and European press on Tuesday, July 25.
Alexis Sanchez wants his future resolved by August and is willing to take a pay cut in a bid to force through a move to Manchester City, according to The Independent.
Bayern Munich, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are also keen on the Chile international but his preference is to remain in the Premier League and join up with Pep Guardiola's revolution at The Etihad.
And The Sun claim Pep Guardiola is willing to help Sanchez fulfil his ambition, with the City boss prepared to go all out with a £50m bid for the forward he managed at Barcelona.
Could that £50m be on its way out of the Gunners' coffers as soon as it arrives? Well, the Daily Mail claim Leicester are holding out for £50m for Algeria international Riyad Mahrez, who has been linked with Roma and Liverpool.
Elsewhere, Antalyaspor are keen on Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere, according to the Turkish club.
The Daily Mirror claim the Gunners have rejected a £7.5m bid from Sampdoria for Wilshere, who spent last season on loan at Bournemouth, but they are open to letting Wilshere leave the club for the right fee.
Another player whose future at the Emirates appears in doubt is that of striker Lucas Perez.
The £17m signing from Deportivo has reportedly told the Gunners he wants to leave after feeling "cheated" by handing his No. 9 shirt to Alexandre Lacazette.
And The Sun claim Marseille and Bayer Leverkusen has offered the Spaniard a lifeline out of his ordeal in north London.
