Arsenal not preparing Malcom bid — Wenger

Arsenal not preparing Malcom bid — Wenger

His power and pace was second to none as the England international captained the side for the first time this season.

Arsene Wenger has insisted that Arsenal are not pursuing Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur target Malcom at the moment.

"People don't know Alexis well", Wenger continued.

"Did you see how he came on today?"

Kevin De Bruyne's comments on the whole transfer saga are pretty ominous, too. He doesn't need to tell me he speaks to anybody else. Both these players have received interest from clubs outside the Premier League. One goal would surely unlock his best form again, but one miss has the opposite effect. We live with facts, not with psychological theories.

"I hope so. He is not ready 100 per cent, but I think he can start to help us for the rest of the season". But Wenger says Sanchez will not leave until his replacement is through the door.

"Of course I want a quick resolution", he told reporters at Arsenal's north London training base.

Earlier this week, a report claimed that Iwobi attended a party less than 48 hours before starting in the club's FA Cup tie at Nottingham Forest, a game which ended in a 4-2 defeat.

Arsenal have scheduled a meeting with Bordeaux to discuss a potential deal for Brazilian forward Malcom, Sky in Italy are reporting.

He admitted the experience of being surrounding by reporters during the match had been strange. That's what I want and I want him to stay for longer.

Meanwhile, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte was left frustrated by his side's failure to turn a dominant display into a victory.

Headed chances went begging for the hosts either side of halftime as Fabregas could only steer Cesar Azpilicueta's diagonal ball straight at David Ospina while Christensen twice failed to find the net from close range after the break.

"We shot 20 times". "Every game we create chances, this season we might be a bit unlucky, but haven't taken the chances". I think in the last period we must be more clinical.

'Nothing is decided one way or another'.

Secondly, more importantly, Arsene Wenger is still the Arsenal manager and has been so for over two decades now.
