Arsene Wenger says that the era of a £ 200 million signing is not far away.
The Arsenal manager was speaking ahead of the new Premier League campaign which starts this weekend. After almost 2 decades, the English league will see the debut of a world’s most expensive player. Alan Shearer was the previous world record transfer, but he moved within the league from Blackburn to Manchester United. Since then, however, Spanish clubs have dominated the transfer market at the upper end of the segment.

Arsenal FC are keen on landing Alvaro Morata from Juventus amidst reported interests from other clubs, leaving the player now wanting to cash in on the interests.
The summer transfer window is fast approaching with Morata already making demands. According to Express, the star player wants £6m in annual wage for any of the top club that wants his services this summer.
Arsenal and Chelsea are leading the pack to sign him in England and Real Madrid are reported to be willing to activate the buy back clause for the player when they sold him to the Italian side two years ago. The club is believed to want the striker back so they could sell to the numerous c6ed7edlubs who want his services.
Arsenal have seen moves to land a top rated striker like Edinson Cavani and Mario Gotze stalled and will be willing to get Morata. They are currently planning on making Jamie Vardy the main man in front but the Gunners move for the Leicester City have been rebuffed leaving Morata as a good alternative to add to the team.

Theo Walcott has been omitted from the provisional England squad for the Euro 2016, but this news will not come as a major surprise to the player according to Alan Smith.
Walcott has been struggling for game time at Arsenal especially in the second half of the 2015-16 season. There have been heavy rumours about Walcott being prepared to leave Arsenal in the summer with even Arsene Wenger admitting that the future of England international at the Emirates stadium was not certain. Wenger promised Walcott a role as the central striker when he was persuaded to sign a new four-year contract in 2015.
Now with only three years left on his existing deal, Arsenal are reportedly considering cashing in on the player. Walcott remains a saleable asset as he is only 27 years old. Even the player will feel confident about featuring for the England national team at a major tournament before the end of his career. Even though he has made 43 appearances for the national team since his debut in 2006, he has played in very little major tournaments. Walcott has been forced out of rage tournaments like the World Cup 2014 because of injuries. He was last seen in the Euro 2012 making an impact as a substitute.

Sir Alex Ferguson recently released his autobiography in which he has criticised several of his former players like David Beckham and Roy Keane.
The former Manchester United manager is currently in his retirement, but several former players and pundits have said that Ferguson should not have criticised players who had been integral towards getting him success at United. The controversy created by Ferguson’s autobiography has raised questions about the possibility of other big managers coming out with books of their own.
After managing Arsenal for more than 15 years, Arsene Wenger is definitely considered as one of the big managers around. He will have a lot to say on numerous aspects like his former players and title winning teams. The Frenchman, though, have said that he does not know whether he would write a book or not. Wenger has said that he will definitely not be bringing out a book at this moment, but he has not ruled out the possibility of publishing one in the future. Ferguson has spoken about in the rivalry he shared with Wenger in the book.
The Frenchman has said that he has not yet read the book and cannot comment on the words used by Ferguson to describe him. Swansea manager Michael Laudrup criticised Ferguson for opening up on the aspects that were spoken in the dressing room.
“I say no at the moment – maybe one day I will be inspired. I do not say never. I just do not feel that need at the moment. The past is history and history has to be written. We have a saying in France – it is not just about making history, it is writing history. It is good for Sir Alex to have a legacy of his career. He was a manager of Manchester United for 27 years – hardly an anonymous person,” said Wenger.
