Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
On the day Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger released an official statement claiming that Lucas Perez and Shkodran Mustafi have both passed their medicals with the Gunners, as dashed off all speculations linking the club with Antoine Griezmann and Robert Lewandowski.
According to The Sun, it claims the north London club had keen interest on signing one of the duo only to be knocked back by both.
The Frenchman according to reports apparently held talks with his compatriot Griezmann during the 2016 European championship about a move to the Emirates stadium. He was said to have replied the Frenchman that he is settled in the Spanish capital.
However, ESPN FC suggested we might be willing to resurrect a deal with the Rojiblancos for the France striker probably in January.
An offer for Bayern Munich’s Lewandowski was also tabled, but Arsenal were unable to match the Polish striker’s wage demands.
