BENITEZ WANTS WILSHERE, CARROLL

Arsenal's determination to keep Alexis Sanchez will be tested by a £80 million bid from Paris Saint-Germain, according to The Sun .
The Chilean has been linked throughout the summer with a move away from north London, with PSG and Manchester City two of the likeliest destination.
And while Arsenal seem set on keeping him at the club until his contract expires next June, a hefty offer from France may tempt them into a U-turn.

WENGER BLOCKED ARSENAL LEMINA PURSUIT
Arsenal scouts were interested in Juventus' Mario Lemina but saw Arsene Wenger block any potential move, reports the Evening Standard .
