Report have shown that premier league club Arsenal have refused to meet the price tag for Renato Sanches during the summer transfer window.

Although the Gunners already signed Albert Sambi Lokonga from Anderlecht over the summer, but they are also in need of another midfielder.

Report have shown that Sanches was one of the players linked with them, but a deal did not materialise before the transfer window closed on August 31 between the player and the two clubs involved.

It is now revealed that the Gunners could have signed the Lille midfielder for £35m, but deemed the valuation to be high as at that time.

With the look of things the north London giants are likely to return for him in January, but are set to face competition from AC Milan and Liverpool who are also monitoring the player situation for now.

Sanches’ injury record over the years remains a concern, and clubs are eyeing a potential cut-price deal for his services.

information shows that the Gunners are currently without Granit Xhaka until January with a knee injury. Irrespective of this they still have plans for another midfielder.

Aside from Sanches, they have been linked with Denis Zakaria whose contract at Borussia Monchengladbach expires next summer.
