Arsene Wenger says that there’s been no progress when it comes to Alexis Sanchez signing a new deal, and that he has made a decision to keep him at the club rather than cashing in because of what he can bring to the team in the new season. It’s always a temptation, and sometimes a […]

Craig Burley says his opinion of Arsenal hasn't changed as the FC crew critique the Gunners' win over Leicester.
LONDON -- Arsene Wenger is intent on keeping both Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jack Wilshere at the club this season, even if it means losing both on a free transfer next summer.
Wenger ruled out selling Oxlade-Chamberlain amid reported interest from Chelsea, and predicted that he is about to develop into one of England's biggest stars.
"I rate him highly and he's one of the players who is on his way up. In the last year, he has made huge progress and personally I want him to stay here for a long...

Arsene Wenger is full of praise for new signing Alexandre Lacazette after his goal in Arsenal's win over Leicester.

Arsene Wenger expresses joy and relief after Olivier Giroud opted to stay at Arsenal instead of pursuing more minutes.
Throughout his time at Arsenal, which dates back to 2012, Olivier Giroud has become accustomed to fighting for a starting place with another, very different type of centre-forward.
Upon Giroud's arrival he was billed by Arsene Wenger as an alternative to Arsenal's main striking option, Robin van Persie, who was a more modern and technical forward. But his subsequent departure to Manchester United meant Giroud became the de facto No. 9 and his bulky, physical presence felt considerably different...

Costa, on the other hand, is in limbo with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte saying the striker is not part of his plans for the upcoming season with the player pushing for a return to Atletico...

The FC crew discuss whether Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain should leave Arsenal.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been the subject of much transfer speculation this summer, with the latest reports on Tuesday -- his 24th birthday -- linking the Arsenal midfielder with a move to Premier League champions Chelsea.
The England international has entered the final year of his contract at the Emirates, just like teammates Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.
Oxlade-Chamberlain signed for the Gunners from Southampton as a 17-year-old in 2011, but should his time at the club end after six seasons,...

Craig Burley says his opinion of Arsenal hasn't changed as the FC crew critique the Gunners' win against Leicester.
Jack Wilshere was back in an Arsenal shirt on Monday night, a sighting that has become increasingly rare in recent years.
The midfielder's latest injury comeback was an outing with the club's Under-23s as he tries to regain match fitness following a fractured ankle -- a route he also took two seasons ago when returning from a more serious leg break. Wilshere has made just five Arsenal first-team appearances in the past two years and with little more than two weeks to go before the transfer window...

But, after plenty of goals were scored in a thrilling opening weekend in the Premier League, which player will bag the most after 38 games?
Click here for ESPN FC Arsenal correspondent Mattias Karen's reasons why Alexandre Lacazette will be part of that conversation.

Arsene Wenger is delighted Olivier Giroud is staying at Arsenal.
Normally when a regular first-team player gets a bit older and starts games less frequently, his stock begins to fall. When his club goes out and breaks their transfer record to sign a player to play in his position, he can very quickly become yesterday's man.
In the case of Olivier Giroud, however, the converse seems to be true. After his role diminished last season, he appeared to be further marginalised by the €53m arrival of Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon.
The 26-year-old got his Arsenal...
