Arsenal to hold off on Goretzka

Monreal expects stars to remain with Gunners

Monreal expects stars to remain with Gunners

The star duo's contracts expire at the end of the season and Gunners chiefs are scrambling tie them down on new deals.

The latest story today is that Barcelona are eyeing a move to bring him to the Nou Camp in the new year, with the player demanding a substantial signing on fee, but Nacho Monreal insists that "the feeling" is that they will be at the Emirates until the end of the term at the very least.

"They are committed to the group and we will see what happens". The Catalan officials clearly haven't forgotten about Ozil's time with their league rivals Real Madrid and they'll hope he can replicate the same form for Barcelona as he did with Los Blancos.

"I can't say much about it".

He finished 9 of 18 for 157 yards passing, hitting a few deep passes to receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones and tight end Zach Gentry. Defense gave MI its best chance to upset Wisconsin on the road, and it looked as if that might happen for two-plus quarters.

"There are other clubs out there who can offer good contracts as well".

Arsenal are said to be watching the situation closely with an open mind to making a move if Schalke make it clear they would be willing to sell in January.

Schalke - who also lost defender Joel Matip to Liverpool on a free transfer in 2016 - are facing a third successive summer of losing a key player for nothing, with Leon Goretzka's contract running down. Bayern Munich claimed they had landed the midfielder earlier in the year but that proved to be false and with Arsenal showing their hand, the Gunners join Manchester City and Roma as admirers. Failing that, €20 million for the World Cup victor is nowhere near enough, even if he does have just six months left on his contract.

Arsenal almost sold Sanchez on the final day of the summer transfer window, but a deal with Manchester City collapsed when they couldn't bring in Monaco's Thomas Lemar as a replacement.
