Sanchez set for Arsenal return after summer of speculation

Trent Alexander-Arnold sustained a dead leg against Hoffenheim and may enter later in the game on Sunday. "The two are good goalscorers, the two are good passers, the two have good assists - that means they can find each other".

If that move does materialise, the Mirror claim it will trigger a 'domino effect', with the Gunners turning their attentions to Leicester's own Riyad Mahrez, who has been angling for a move away from the club all summer.

Here, we look at some of the top football transfer stories from the British and world media in The Sport Review's Grapevine, published twice a day during the summer transfer window.

"We've won three games and should have won the first one at Watford without a perfect performance". For now, though, Klopp is likely to field the same line-up that deconstructed Hoffenheim midweek.

Wenger's relationship with Sanchez was thrown into the spotlight when the star forward was dropped at Anfield last season, following a training ground spat.

"He did that at Liverpool as well, you had Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling - they scored over 100 goals". He now arrives at a stage of 28, 29 and looks at the quality of his contract.

"But sometimes the way he can marry with people around him decides the quality of the team". But I think what hurt him a lot was to miss the FA Cup Final.

"There are all the ingredients there", Wenger said, quoted by the Daily Mail.

"You have many types of strikers and he is the one who is more of a combination player than a finisher". Sanchez has balked at signing a new contract but is set to stay at the Emirates as Wenger has steadfastly refused to sell his most valuable asset.

"I am fine with defence, I am fine with the offence", added the Liverpool boss. We work with the things we have, we work on the mistakes we make, we work to make the strengths even stronger. Thierry Henry made an interesting observation when analysing Lacazette's debut, inferring that as much as it is about the player finding his groove, his team-mates also need to tune in to Lacazette's game. He has lodged a transfer request, too, and officially is unavailable because of illness and a back injury.

Defensively, Arsenal remain weak and vulnerable, having conceded four goals in two league games so far, and the deficiencies within the squad have hardly been rectified by the arrivals of just two new signings: Alexandre Lacazette and Sead Kolasinac.
