Bordeaux: Arsenal will have a "hard time" signing Malcom

Arsenal target highly-rated Brazilian youngster Malcom as a potential replacement for Alexis Sanchez

Jack Wilshere limped off with an ankle sprain during the tie, although Wenger didn't think the injury was "too bad".

Arsene Wenger is running out of excuses.

The Frenchman signed a new two-year deal ahead of this season and it is understood there is no break clause in the contract. The previous season they had finished fifth: not outstanding by any means, but would anyone really back the 2018 team to finish above City, United, Tottenham, Chelsea and Liverpool?

Wenger has got himself into this mess by allowing his three best players to enter the previous year of their contracts at the same time. The two clubs have agreed a deal but it is being held up with manager Jurgen Klopp considering his options after Coutinho's departure, per Joe Bernstein for MailOnline.

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City are on a roll this season. He also possesses real pace and good finishing ability. It nearly didn't matter if Arsenal sold Sanchez to Manchester City or United. At his weekly pre-game press conference, Wenger was asked if Ozil could stay at Arsenal.

He is also being pursued by several English clubs, although Liverpool's valuation of £30 million has been seen as a risk. Jurgen Klopp does not rate the England striker's work rate as high enough for a role within his pressing system.

A photo from Zhou Hongxu's Facebook page shows him in front of the Republic of China (Taiwan) flag and a portrait of Sun Yat-sen. He called the investigation an attempt by President Tsai Ing-wen's government to intimidate opponents of Taiwanese independence.

United are different. Arsenal are supposed to be able to compete with United, not hand over their best player - again.

It looks nailed on that Alexis Sanchez will depart the Emirates in the near future, whether that is this month, or in the summer is yet to be decided.

One player who looks set to follow Coutinho out of Anfield is Woodburn who could join Sunderland on loan.

Hector Bellerin fired Arsenal into a second-half lead on the south coast, only for Callum Wilson and Jordon Ibe to pounce and turn the game on its head. It was very disappointing today. "A hugely disappointing result and performance from Arsenal". "Especially when you're 1-0 up and we made mistakes in areas where you wonder where they come from".

- It could be a case of "if at first you don't succeed" for Hull in their efforts to sign Aberdeen defender Scott McKenna, the Hull Daily Mail reports. That alone proves he's no longer the man for the job.
