Although it’s not quite the height of transfer silly-season, those days are fast approaching.
The rumour mill was in overdrive on Sunday with a chain of moves linking Arsenal, Southampton and Leicester City together.
According to the Daily Mirror, the Gunners are pursuing a deal for the Saints’ livewire forward Sadio Mane.
The 24-year-old is a regular in gossip columns and did his chances of sealing a big-club switch no harm by scoring six goals in his last five games on the south coast.
With Theo Walcott, Alexis Sanchez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Joel Campbell all operating in the wide forward positions for Arsene Wenger though, the French manager would be oversubscribed in that area should the Senegalese arrive.
On a one in, one out policy, the Mirror suggest that oft-injured Oxlade-Chamberlain gets moved on, with the Foxes his most likely landing spot.
The 22-year-old England international has been out of action since injuring his knee in February and is unfit to take part in the upcoming European Championships as a result.
If the Foxes could get him back to full health, they would have a lively player that perfectly fits their style of play on their hands.
The only question mark surrounds Oxlade-Chamberlain’s ability to remain fit.
