    Arsenal get transfer tips

    The acquisition of Gabriel Jesus won't be enough for Arsenal to challenge the Premier League big boys.

    That's according to Kevin Campbell who reckons the Gunners need another forward who's more versatile to break into the Prem elite.

    He told Football Insider: "We need another forward.

    "I would sign a versatile forward who can play across the front line. This is where Liverpool and Man City have got it right in my opinion. They have interchangeable pieces up top."

    Keane said on Sky: "I think last season was their big opportunity [to return to the Champions League].

    "They blew it, they got into a great position, four, five games to go in the season you think they’re in pole position and they blew it. They couldn’t get over the line."

    Good morning Arsenal fans

    Leicester are expecting Arsenal to swoop in and make an offer for Youri Tielemans this month.

    But is has been reported that the Gunners are yet to turn their interest in Tielemans into a formal bid.

    SunSport exclusively revealed last month that the Gunners were weighing up a £30million bid for the midfielder.

    According to The Guardian, the Foxes are expecting the North Londoners to submit a bid for the Belgium international.

    But they claim there have been no offers for Tielemans yet from any club, with Manchester United also said to be keeping tabs.

    Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has warned teams looking to raid his side that they will not be "exploited" into selling any their best players.

    Meanwhile, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta’s cull is gathering pace as he looks to offload 11 players who were part of the pre-season tour of America, reports SunSport's Mark Irwin.

    Bernd Leno will be next out of the Emirates after agreeing an £8m move to newly-promoted Fulham.

    Nuno Tavares as well as Arthur Okonwko have already been loaned out to Marseille and Crewe respectively.

    And Folarin Balogun is set to spend a season on loan over in France with Reims.

    But the Gunners have still not found any buyers for Hector Bellerin, Pablo Mari, Lucas Torreira, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Reiss Nelson.

    Record signing Nicolas Pepe will also be shifted if Arteta signs another winger.

    Alex Runarsson is also up for grabs despite offering potential Europa League back-up to Aaron Ramsdale and Matt Turner.

    But Arteta confirmed he wants more signings to help him find the “perfect balance”.

    The Spanish tactician told Sky: “We are still hoping to do something else if the market allows us to do that.

    “You have seen some movement in the few days as well. We want to get the perfect balance and the plan we wanted from the beginning.

    “Whether we accomplish that or not is another story.”

    Finally, Arsenal are weighing up a shock swoop for Chelsea’s Timo Werner in the summer.

    The Blues are open to parting ways with Werner before the transfer window closes.

    The Gunners are interested in poaching the struggling forward from their London rivals, according to Defensa Central.

    The Germany international has endured an underwhelming two-years with the Blues – scoring only 10 goals in 56 Premier League matches

    Chelsea have been knocked back in their approach for Inter Milan wonderkid and Arsenal target Cesare Casadei after his club rejected their £6.7million opening offer.

    But the West Londoners aren’t giving up on their pursuit of the highly-rated teenager, with La Repubblica insisting they are preparing a new offer.

    Though it has been said that the Nerazzurri will refuse to part ways with Casadei unless they receive a bid in the region of £17m.

    They also declare that they face competition from the Gunners in the race to secure the 19-year-old’s services.

    "She [manager Sarina Wiegman] has used that XI through the whole of the tournament but the people that are coming on know that they’ve got a role to play and they’re happy to come off the bench and play their role.

    “Every single player has played a part. It hurts [to lose a final]. I walked past the trophy in 2009 and it stayed with me forever. I’m so happy”

    Appearing on a Sky Bet debate, Keane said: "I couldn’t agree more I think this [previous season] was their opportunity [to return to the Champions League].

    "They blew it, they got into a great position, four, five games to go in the season you think they’re in pole position and they blew it.

    "They couldn’t get over the line. They were poor, the Newcastle game was a real blow to them where they never turned up.

    "The manager was quite critical of them after the game, some of the players were – senior ones – so you wouldn’t be putting any bets on Arsenal to finish top four next season because the other teams.

    "Man United will get better you’d of thought. Tottenham will be stronger, you can’t see it, big set-back"
