Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger lost his cool today in his post match interview when continuously pestered by journalists over his rumoured lack of interest in spending big money in the transfer market.

Wenger, who has always maintained that there is no shortage of funds at his disposal at Arsenal, also questioned the sanity of the transfer market after Manchester United spent in excess of 89 million pounds to sign Paul Pogba.

Arsenal's introduction of Mesut Ozil in the 73rd minute of their game against Leicester City gave the Gunners a much needed boost as their link up play in the final third had been seriously lacking till that stage, but despite being considerably under-cooked, Ozil was able to put in a decent cameo as he helped a struggling Arsenal side carve out some late half-chances.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is understood to have shortlisted German youngster Lukas Klostermann as a potential defensive target this summer, according to reports in The Daily Mail.

The 20 year old, who currently plies his trade for Bundesliga side Red Bull Leipzig, is known to be valued in the region of £25m by his club; however, it seems unlikely that the Gunners’ opening bid for him may be anywhere near that amount, with Wenger known for his frugal nature when it comes to transfers.

Arsenal's sole fit senior centre back Gabriel Paulista is leaving Sweden tonight on crutches after his tackle on Nigerian forward Iheanacho saw the young Manchester City striker land on the Brazilian's leg and potentially having ruptured his ankle ligaments.

Gabriel, playing just his second game of pre-season today, was risked for the full 90 minutes by Manager Arsene Wenger despite having young Krystian Bielik to call upon on the subs bench and it proved to be a decision that the Frenchman could well live to rue after the South American defender injured himself in injury time at the end of the game.

Arsenal's veteran manager Arsene Wenger believes that Theo Walcott's future is as a striker rather than a winger at the Premier League football club. Walcott was left out of England's Euro 2016 squad by then-head coach Roy Hodgson after a disappointing EPL season. Hodgson resigned after England exited at the Round of 16 stage.
