Arsenal target Man Utd's Anthony Martial; Oxlade-Chamberlain to Liverpool

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger wants Kylian Mbappe from Monaco -- this we know -- but the £100 million price tag might be a bit too steep. So Wenger needs a backup plan, and that backup plan is Anthony Martial, according to the Mail.

Martial did not have the best of seasons last year and was publicly criticised by United manager Jose Mourinho.
A bid of around £40m may test United's resolve and give Arsenal funds towards a move, with the Mail reporting that "insiders say Wenger believes 18-year-old Mbappe could have the same impact as Thierry Henry."

Liverpool close in on Arsenal's Ox

One minute Liverpool are signing Mohamed Salah, the next they are swooping for Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, according to the Mirror.
It reports that the Merseysiders will "continue their spending spree" with a move for Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has a year left on his contract "and has become frustrated by a lack of talks."
Manager Jurgen Klopp would be willing to pay £30m, the report says, adding that "sources within Anfield are indicating that the chances of the transfer going through are increasing."
Meanwhile, the Mirror adds that West Ham could also raid the Gunners, with Theo Walcott the man in their sights.
It reports that the Hammers "have made England international Walcott a £25m target amid his reported frustration at a lack of regular playing time."
And after reports that full-back Hector Bellerin was torn between loyalty to Arsenal and a possible return to Barcelona, it seems his mind may have been made up for him.
That's because majority shareholder Stan Kroenke has told him he won't be leaving, with reports in Spain saying Kroenke telephoned Bellerin to tell him he would not return to the Camp Nou.
