The Premier League champions had targeted Roma hitman Edin Dzeko after losing out to Manchester United in the race to sign Alexis Sanchez, but they were met with more disappointment.

Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is also on the brink of joining the Gunners in a club-record deal worth around £55 million.

Chelsea To Get The Best Of Deals?

Dortmund, in turn, have been linked with Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi, Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud and FC Koln's Anthony Modeste.

"One minute [after scoring the first goal] we didn't track Clucas and straight away it's 1-1". Their pursuit of Andy Carroll was cut short when the target man got injured.

Tottenham, meanwhile, should complete the £25m signing of Lucas Moura from Paris St Germain.

Paris Saint-Germain's Lucas Moura. His imminent departure feels understated and anti-climactic, as if no-one at Arsenal is really bothered. France has one of the finest stables of strikers in the world.

But it hasn't been that easy since his arrival.

More importantly, Giroud has always offered Arsenal something different: his hold-up play, his technical quality and unique skilfulness and, of course, his physical presence, make him unlike most forwards in the Premier League.

It is possible for all three teams and all three players to benefit from the moves. City will close the window with Aymeric Laporte, and there is a chance that Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred could also seal a move.

The Gunners have refused to pay the £20m that West Brom want for Northern Ireland centre-back Jonny Evans.

Verdict: Almost a done deal.

Wenger reportedly wanted £30 million for the 31-year-old striker, but when you're so desperate to sign an upgrade, negotiations become that much harder.

But the fact that Wenger talked about Giroud in the past tense suggested the striker is about to end his six-year association with Arsenal.

PSG need to sell to reduce their wage bill and raise funds after their £198m outlay on Neymar last summer.

PIERRE-EMERICK Aubameyang's flight path from Dortmund to London was tracked enthusiastically by Arsenal fans when news emerged overnight that he was on his way from Germany in a private jet. "We have to find solutions".

However, amid reports of a £90m asking price, both clubs appear to have dropped their interest.

Swansea's response was instant and from Arsenal's point of view it was a desperately poor goal to concede.
