NEVER AUBA AND OUT
Bernd Leno insists Arsenal's players always believed skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang would stay – despite Barcelona's transfer-deadline interest.
And the Gunners' Germany keeper claims that's because the squad is still excited by Mikel Arteta's arrival as boss in December.
Leno said: “You never had the feeling that any player was thinking about another club or wanted to leave or was refusing to train, or something like that, or they didn't have the mentality in the training.
“Everybody can see we have a new manager and a new mentality.
“We want to build something here at Arsenal.
“Maybe it takes a little bit of time, but of course we also want to have good results straight away now.”
LAMP'S FLASHY SPREE
Frank Lampard is ready to make up for his empty transfer window by spending £150million in the summer.
Borussia Dortmund's England attacker Jadon Sancho and Lyon frontman Moussa Dembele are already top targets, according to London's Standard.
SELL SALAH IF YOU CAN GET MBAPPE
Signing Kylian Mbappe or Jadon Sancho to replace Mo Salah could STRENGTHEN Liverpool, ex-England frontman Darren Bent claims.
Bent believes selling Egpyt striker Salah for a huge sum would enableKop boss Jurgen Klopp to shape his team even more as he would like it.
He told talkSPORT “It's not about selling him and getting £100million and that's it, but if you can replace him with an Mbappe or someone like a Jadon Sancho, I think it's worth thinking about.”
JACK 'TOPS OLE WISHLIST'
Jack Grealish is Manchester United's summer transfer priority, reports say.
The ex-England Under-21 midfielder has been in peak form since Aston Villa's return to the Premier League this season, with nine goals, five assists and a key role in their run to the Carabao Cup final.
Now the Mirror suggest Old Trafford boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to add the 24-year-old to new £55million signing Bruno Fernandes in mid-pitch.
FOXES FIGHT TOON FOR SAID
Brentford are preparing for a major summer fight to hang on to Leicester and Newcastle target Said Benrahma.
he Premier League duo are willing to pay £15million for the Algerian winger, who has helped the Bees to fifth in the Championship.
Other top clubs are also watching Benrahma, 24, who scored a hat-trick in Saturday's 5-1 win at Hull.
Considered by many fans as the best player in the second tier, he has proved a huge bargain since arriving from Nice for just £1.5m in 2018.
Brentford will have to get promoted to have any chance of holding on to their star man.
Aston Villa appeared to be frontrunners for Benrahma early in the season, with a £20m bid mooted.
