As the week draws to a close, Arsenal are being linked with a number of players.

It looks as though Arsene Wenger will have to start early if he is to keep pace with Manchester United and Chelsea.

There could be comings and goings at the Emirates, though, with a number of big-name players on the verge of leaving the club.

The biggest of these looks to be that of Samir Nasri, with the talented Frenchman exploring the possibility of joining Manchester United, according to The Daily Mail.

The Premier League champions are said to be prepared to offer £10 million for the player who is out of contract next summer.

United are also on the verge of completing a deal for Aston Villa midfielder Ashley Young, according to Sky Sports. The England midfielder looks set to join before getting married this weekend.

Back at the Emirates, another Frenchman could be on his way out. Left-back Gael Clichy is also said to be leaving the Gunners, says a goal.com report.

According to The Guardian, it looks like Liverpool would be interested in Clichy, who is available for around £5 million as he also has only one year left on his contract.

There could also be a few new arrivals at the Emirates, too.

One of those, according to Mirror Football, could be Southampton midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain—the highly-rated English prospect does not turn 18 until August, but he still could fetch a fee in the region of £12 million.

He could be joined at the club by a pair of talented flyers from Ligue Un champions Lille, Gervinho and Eden Hazard are classy players and would prove to be astute additions.

 

Best of the Rest

Across North London, it seems as though Harry Redknapp could face a battle to keep England striker Peter Crouch.

Sunderland are said to be keen with Steve Bruce willing to pay up to £20 million for the striker, says goal.com.

Tottenham though have other ideas and would want Ghanaian Asamoah Gyan in exchange.

Someone who could be leaving White Hart Lane is Robbie Keane, as he looks set to join Tottenham boss Martin Jol at Fulham.

Another player who could be heading to Craven Cottage is Newcastle skipper Kevin Nolan, says metro.co.uk.

Finally, after a brilliant season with Wigan, The Mirror says Charles N’Zogbia could be a summertime target for Everton, who will look to offload Joesph Yobo and Yakubu to raise funds.
