There continues to be speculation over the futures of Arsenal duo Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.

The contracts of both players are due to expire at the end of the season and several clubs have been linked with them in recent months.

The Sunday Mirror reckon Paris St-Germain have overtaken Manchester City in a battle to sign Sanchez and are now favourites to capture the Chilean forward.

PSG have apparently earmarked Sanchez as a replacement for Neymar, who has been linked with Real Madrid.

The Sun on Sunday say Ozil, who has been linked with Manchester United, is set to open talks with Barcelona.

The German is said to favour a move back to La Liga, where he played for Real before joining the Gunners.

Meanwhile, the Mail on Sunday say Arsenal are expected to launch a new bid for Monaco’s Thomas Lemar in January but it will be well below the £90m they reportedly offered for him in August.

Arsenal will go head to head with Liverpool in a battle to sign PSG’s Julian Draxler in the January transfer window, the Sunday Mirror reckon.

And the Sunday Mirror also claim Chelsea are close to agreeing a deal to sign 17-year-old Hamburg forward Jann-Fiete Arp, who is apparently also wanted by Arsenal and Manchester City.
