The Sun claims Arsenal believe a breakthrough has been made in the club's quest to tie Ozil down to a new £225k-a-week deal, with the World Cup victor reportedly giving the impression that he's ready to put pen to paper. You want the Premier League to be the best league in the world and I think it has to produce this kind of game to produce interest and quality. The Gunners boss signed a new contract in the summer despite growing unrest amongst the club's supporters about their lack of progress in the Premier League.

Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud came off the bench snatch victory from the jaws of defeat for Arsenal, who opened the 2017-18 Premier League season with a topsy-turvy 4-3 thriller against Leicester City.

Ahead of the first game, Wenger was asked if this would be his most hard season and responded in agreement, praising the work his side's main rivals have done with their transfers.

Last season was by far the most hard of Wenger's 21-year tenure as manager, with Arsenal's on-pitch travails exposing him to furious protests from sections of the club's support.

Wenger has been handed a major boost as Ozil is in contention after recovering from an ankle injury that kept him out of the Community Shield last weekend. For fans in the United Kingdom, the game is on Sky Go.

Game Start Time: It is the home play of Arsenal, they host Leicester City and the match scheduled for the kick-off at 07:45 pm local time on August 11.


"And it's not finished - Chelsea have bought [Alvaro] Morata and have not lost [Diego] Costa yet, and they will certainly buy more".

However, the new signings have dried up and Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are yet to sign new deals so there are still plenty of question marks to an answered heading in to the new season. Sanchez, the Frenchman says, is suffering with an abdominal issue.

Iheanacho already brought in by Leicester....

Arsene Wenger has given an update on the potential transfer of Riyad Mahrez from Leicester and claimed that the Gunners were never close to signing the Algerian (via The Mirror).
