Malcom to Arsenal: Bordeaux president deals Arsene Wenger transfer blow

Malcom to Arsenal: Bordeaux president deals Arsene Wenger transfer blow

Near neighbours and bitter rivals, Tottenham Hotspur have also registered an interest in the Brazilian, but it's Arsenal who seemed to have made the first move for the much talked about 20-year-old.

"He's always been committed until now but he could have gone yesterday and he could go in the next 48 hours".

Sanchez had looked certain to join City and enjoy a reunion with Pep Guardiola, the manager under whom he played for one season at Barcelona. "That is why I chose to focus on the game".

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is another name that has been making waves in recent days and the Gabonese forward, who has 21 goals in 24 games this season, is said to have told Dortmund he is done with the club.

"Will he go or not, I don't know, but at the moment it's the transfer period".

More news: David Silva Plays - Manchester City Team vs Bournemouth Confirmed

Ahead of a trip to Bournemouth tomorrow, Wenger is under some pressure with his side sitting sixth in the table - five points behind fourth-placed Liverpool. I don't think Ibe got into the game particularly quickly. I just do, in every single decision I make, what is right for the club. We weren't sharp enough to create chances. You could see at 1-1 it was inevitable, there were no characters out there, nobody pulling people into position. It was very disappointing today.

"I want him to stay for longer because he's a very important player for us".

Never mind the top four, Arsenal are not even the fifth-best team in the country and their best players want out.

A detailed analysis of Callum Wilson's equaliser and Jordon Ibe's victor may not reflect well on the Arsenal defence, Wenger issuing a strident criticism of his side's efforts at the back.

Eddie Howe hailed Bournemouth's resolve in turning the game around as the Cherries climbed to 13th in the table.
