Arsenal Transfer News Fellaini shock talks Sokratis medical Lichtsteiner update

There can be a lot of silly rumours in the summer transfer window but this one has more than a little weight to it.

With the squad in need of an overhaul but also with funds limited, Fellaini's availability on a free transfer is a strong motivator in Arsenal's interest in the former Everton man (as is the case with Juventus full-back Stephan Lichtsteiner).

Arsenal have already looked overseas last season with the arrival of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, while they didn't avoid Premier League experience either thanks to a shrewd deal for Henrikh Mkhitaryan that involved Alexis Sanchez going to Manchester United.

Reports in France claim that Arsenal are keen on signing Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini on a free transfer (via The Telegraph).

Fabio Fognini beat Kyle Edmund 6-3, 4-6, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4, while Maximilian Marterer won 6-2, 6-1, 6-4 against Jurgen Zopp. Gasquet was seeded 27th in Paris but has been ranked as high as No. 7 and made it to three Grand Slam semi-finals.

Fellaini wanted to up his £80k-a-week at United but they refused to budge and he wouldn't accept a new one-year deal, believing he has one last big contract in him. However, the club's newly appointed boss Thomas Tuchel is unconvinced.

Fellaini has been selected in Belgium's World Cup squad and the Red Devils had hoped he would sign his extension before he travelled to Russian Federation for the World Cup.

According to The Sun, a proposed move to AC Milan has fallen through due to Fellaini's wage demands and now his representatives are looking closer to home for his next team.

Back in the Champions League next season, the Frenchman has bought into Simeone's vision that they can once again challenge both domestically and in Europe.
