Arsenal focus on Julian Draxler and Thomas Lemar
Arsenal are focusing on completing deals for Julian Draxler or Thomas Lemar, according to James Olley.
It means that the Alexis Sanchez to Man City deal will not be completed – at least for now.
#afc focus now seems to be on landing one of Draxler or Lemar. Both big-money deals and time running out. Meanwhile, Sanchez must wait.

Arsenal will not let Sanchez leave unless they can find a replacement and Draxler and Lemar appear to be the players that Arsenal have chosen.
City reportedly made a £60m bid this afternoon after seeing their first bid rejected.
The Mail reported earlier that Arsenal had made a huge £90m offer for Lemar.
Draxler has found his position at PSG under threat depsite only joining the club at the start of the year. The arrivals of Neymar and the impending deal for Kylian Mbappe mean that he may have to leave the club to play football.
It is set to be an exciting evening for Arsenal fans but it could end up with very little happening if Arsenal can not push one of these deals through.
