Arsenal's Arsene Wenger believes the transfer window should be closed before the start of the season to avoid playing the same players more than twice.
Arsenal defender Gabriel Paulista is on the verge of joining Valencia in a reported €12 million deal.

Arsene Wenger has said he'd rather keep Alexis Sanchez at the club and take a financial loss at the end of the Chilean's contract.

Arsene Wenger expects the injured Alexis Sanchez to miss Arsenal's opening two Premier League fixtures.
Alexis Sanchez has been called up for Chile's upcoming qualifiers against Paraguay and Bolivia, despite a recent injury.
Sanchez, whose future at Arsenal has been a talking point for most of the year, was ruled out of the Gunners' Premier League opener with Leicester last week due to an abdominal strain, with Arsene Wenger stating his star forward was likely to be "out for a while."
However Chile, who will re-open their qualifying campaign on Aug. 31 against Paraguay, have seen fit to include the...

Thierry Henry scored 228 goals for Arsenal.
As Thierry Henry turns 40, it's safe to say that Arsenal will probably never see another player like their record goal scorer. But will the English football?
Henry celebrates his landmark birthday on Thursday and his status as one of the Premier League's greatest ever players remains unchallenged -- especially in an era when most of the game's biggest stars are playing in other countries. In honour of the French striker's milestone, here's a look at five things that made him so unique.

Africa's richest man says he is plotting a bid to take over Arsenal -- and that his first move as owner would be to fire Arsene Wenger.
Nigerian billionaire Aliko Dangote told Bloomberg in an interview that he is planning to make an offer to majority owner Stan Kroenke once the construction of a new oil refinery in Lagos, Nigeria, is completed.
"The first thing I would change is the coach," Dangote was quoted as saying. "He has done a good job, but someone else should also try his luck."

Arsene Wenger is in favour of the transfer window closing before the start of the season.
If Arsenal's Premier League turnaround against Leicester City hinged on one moment, it might well have been an immaculate Aaron Ramsey first touch.
At that point, Leicester appeared to be heading for an unlikely 3-2 victory. However, when Granit Xhaka's pass found the Welshman at the far post, he showed exquisite technique to bring the ball under control before firing expertly beyond Kasper Schmeichel. Ramsey's brilliance turned the tide, and from that point on Arsenal's victory felt inevitable....

Arsenal's Arsene Wenger believes the transfer window should be closed before the start of the season to avoid playing the same players more than twice.
LONDON -- Arsene Wenger remains "optimistic" that Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez will both sign contract extensions -- but only if Arsenal deliver success on the pitch this season.
Ozil and Sanchez have entered the final year of their contracts and could leave the club for free next summer, a scenario that could deal a huge financial blow to the club. While the standoff has mainly been attributed to money, Wenger said he thinks it's the results on the pitch that will determine whether the star duo...

"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...
