Arsenal continues to fight off interest from Premier League rivals for the signature of their best players.
The Gunners are on the verge of losing the key trio of Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, as they enter into the final years of their current deals with the Gunners.
Alexis Sanchez is wanted by Manchester City, and the Chilean appears keen on moving to the Etihad, but Arsenal has informed him that he cannot join a direct rival.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is also a target for Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp and has rejected a new contract offer from the Gunners.
The Gunners have come to regret selling their stars to Premier League rivals as they tend to help their new team win the Premier League.
Van Persie moved to Manchester United in the summer of 2012 and helped Manchester United win the Premier League. Gael Clichy, Emmanuel Adebayor, and Samir Nasri also left the Gunners and helped Manchester City win the Premier League.
After completing the signing of their primary transfer target, Alexandre Lacazette, the Gunners have now turned their attention to securing the future of their stars with new talks planned within the next few weeks.
