Arsenal and Manchester United have been handed respective transfer blows in their pursuit of Leicester City players after Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers revealed that none of his players will leave the club when the winter transfer window reopens in January.

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers talked about his players and transfers during his pre-match press conference on Friday before the league trip to Brighton and Hove Albion.

The ex-Liverpool and Swansea City boss said that the least expectation is to maintain the same squad at the club when the January transfer window shuts.

Brendan Rodgers talked about adding new players to his squad but he’s contented with the team.

He dismissed the various transfer rumors linking some of his players with other Premier League teams by saying that they are not for sale.

Leicester City players like Jonny Evans, James Maddison, Ricardo Pereira and Caglar Soyuncu have been linked with bigger Premier League teams.

Arsenal and Manchester City have an interest in Turkish international Caglar Soyuncu.

Manchester City are the Premier League champions but they face a big battle to retain their title mainly due to defensive issues.

The Citizens have been linked with Leicester City defenders Jonny Evans and Caglar Soyuncu.

James Maddison and Ricardo Pereira are transfer targets for Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur respectively.

Philippe Coutinho

North London outfit Arsenal have been tipped to move in for the signature of Brazilian international, Philippe Coutinho from Spanish La Liga club, Barcelona, this summer transfer window.

The Gunners have been linked with the player who is out-of-favour at the Bernabeu with his future left hanging as German Bundesliga outfit, Bayern Munich are unwilling to give him a permanent stay at the club.

Reports now claim that the North London club are the only solution to Philippe Coutinho as the player has already decided that he does not want to play for the Spanish giants anymore.

Most clubs are refusing to look the direction of Philippe Coutinho because of the wage bill and the same reason why Barcelona are having it tough with him to stay.

Should the North London club propose a loan deal for Philippe Coutinho, it would solve a lot of problems as the wage bill could be shared between the two teams.

However, there are fears that the North Londoners have already rejected the chances of having the former Liverpool player at the Emirates Stadium as they prefer his Brazilian counterpart, Willian from West London club, Chelsea.

Willian is reported to have completed medicals at the Emirates Stadium and a three-year deal is set to be announced by the club.

Arsenal and Man United have failed to capture the signature of Canadian forward, Jonathan David as he has reportedly completed a move to French Ligue 1 outfit, Lille.

Jonathan David is highly rated as he has been consistent in the past two seasons with a total of 48 goals and 20 assists in all, a feat that is amazing for a player at his age.

The 20-year-old forward was seen as a very big prospect by the two Premier League teams and tipped to succeed with English football but they were unable to agree on terms that will give them victory in the chase.

The Gunners and the Red Devils were not alone in the chase of Jonathan David as a list of English Premier League clubs; Leicester City, Leeds United, Brighton, and Crystal Palace were also in the chase.

However, Arsenal are in search of a new forward with reports that that French striker Alexandre Lacazette could be part of the exits at the Emirates Stadium this summer window.

The Gunners team are hoping to cash in from his sale to be able to secure their transfer targets as they are in a battle to compete with other clubs because of funds.

Meanwhile, Man United are also bent on more attacking options ahead of next season.

Dani Ceballos

The North London outfit, Arsenal were hoping to have Dani Ceballos at the Emirates Stadium next season but it is feared that it might not happen with his owners, Real Madrid considering keeping him.

Dani Ceballos spent a season at the Emirates Stadium on a loan deal and the end of it was sweet for him. He actually wanted to stay. Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta also shares the same sentiment as he enjoyed the service of the 24-year-old and wanted him as part of his plans for next season.

Already, the Gunners have made their intention known to the Spanish giants but the latest report by Spanish outlet, AS claims that they will be turned down.

The report claims that Real Madrid boss, Zinedine Zidane now feels he can work with Dani Ceballos, adding that the player’s career can come alive again for Los Blancos in the coming season.

The report claims that the decision by Zinedine Zidane is influenced by the need to have a long-term replacement for Luka Modric in the team as Dani Ceballos has been tipped to fill in that role.

From all indication, Mikel Arteta will now face other options to be able to forge ahead in his transfer plans if Dani Ceballos will not be joining Arsenal again.

Alexandre Lacazette

The latest report have claimed that Italian Serie A outfit, Juventus are keen to land Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette and are willing to offer a player in his exchange.

The Old Lady team is reported to have provided three options to the North London outfit for a swap deal to make the deal happen for Alexandre Lacazette this summer window.

Alexandre Lacazette is loved at the Emirates Stadium but he has not been consistent as a first-eleven player and that leaves him with the option of considering his future at the club and manager Mikel Arteta is opened to let that happen.

With Juventus ready to land the former Lyon striker, a swap deal is being proposed as they are willing to offer Brazilian winger Douglas Costa or centre-back Cristian Romero in the swap deal.

However, Arsenal will prefer to cash in on Alexandre Lacazette, especially if they do not get the player of their choice in the swap deal so that they can use the funds for other deals.

The Gunners have valued Alexandre Lacazette for £30 million and that could be their target for releasing him this summer window but a final decision would be made in the coming weeks as talks are yet to be opened between the two clubs.
