But Wenger has also revealed he has a problem at the Emirates. The Arsenal manager needs to trim down his giant first-team squad before he can bring in any new signings, The Independent reports.

West Ham is on the verge of signing 25-year-old midfielder William Carvalho from Sporting Lisbon, according to Sky Sports. The midfielder is likely to become the club’s record signing, with Sporting demanding a fee of around £40 million (about $51 million).

Crystal Palace is unlikely to complete the permanent signing of Mamadou Sakho, the French defender who became a fan-favorite at Selhurst Park in just a few months last season, according to the Guardian. New manager Frank de Boer says 27-year-old Liverpool center back is too expensive.

And finally, Leicester City players are urging wantaway forward Riyad Mahrez to remain at the King Power Stadium this summer, according to the Leicester Mercury. Leicester rejected a £30 million (about $39 million) bid from Roma for Mahrez, as the club wants around £50 million (about $64 million) for the 2016 PFA Player of the Year.
