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.
Everton are planning to make an offer worth £30milion for Arsenal’s Theo Walcott.
Manager Ronald Koeman had been hoping to take two Gunners player off the market by snapping up Olivier Giroud too, but the France striker seems intent on a move to Borussia Dortmund as the German club’s replacement for Chelsea-bound Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
That has seen Koeman divert his attention to Crystal Palace’s former Liverpool hitman Christian Benteke.
While it’s no-go over Giroud, he could be more successful in his pursuit ofEngland wide-man Walcott, who was not a permanent fixture in Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger’s plans last season.
With Yannick Bolasie out until the end of the year with a knee injury, Koeman wants a wide player and has also been in contact with Leicester about Demarai Gray.
Having already splashed £100m in the transfer market this summer, Everton are also closing in on a £45m deal for Swansea’s Gylfi Sigurdsson thanks to the financial muscle of big shareholder Farhad Moshiri.
