Transfer Talk: Arsenal would sell Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Mesut Ozil to raise cash

The transfer window for Europe's biggest clubs is closed, but click here for all the deals. Transfer Talk will continue to scour the world's media and set correspondents loose to see what's on the agenda for the summer.

Mkhitaryan and Ozil out, Barella in?

Arsenal boss Unai Emery is reportedly looking to sell Henrikh Mkhitaryan in order to free up spending money for new players this summer, says the Mirror, and Mesut Ozil also could be on his way out, with Arsenal reportedly keen to offload...

Way-too-early look at next season: Real Madrid land Mbappe, Sancho to Man United?

The 2018-19 season isn't over yet, but with the international break upon us, we thought it would be a good time to look ahead to next season.

Here, our writers and correspondents give their predictions for what will happen over the summer and how Europe's biggest teams will line up for their first game.

MAN CITY -- Jonathan Smith

Who will be signed?

The spectre of a potential transfer ban is hanging over Manchester City. It's possible that they may be busy in this summer's...

Alex Iwobi's movement and link play essential to Arsenal's rebuilding process

Alex Iwobi has only five goals and six assists in 38 appearances, but his value is about more than goals and assists.

Football is very good at comparing young footballers to previous greats -- there's a desperation to look for the next Diego Maradona, the next Thierry Henry, the next Cristiano Ronaldo.

But what happens when a footballer comes along who doesn't quite fit an obvious template? Well, the simple answer is that such players' talents aren't always appreciated.

Step up Alex Iwobi, Arsenal's Nigeria international who isn't really a winger, a central midfielder or a No. 10 and isn't particularly prolific...

By the numbers: Messi's 51st hat-trick, Salah's long scoreless streak

Lionel Messi celebrates after putting Barcelona ahead 1-0 in their Champions League tie with Lyon.
Lionel Messi scored his 33rd La Liga hat-trick in the course of Barcelona's 4-1 win away to Real Betis.

There's Lionel Messi, and then there's the rest. The weekend's football in Europe seemed to suggest so, although one must put this helpful caveat: Juventus gave Cristiano Ronaldo the weekend off.

Here are the best numbers from the weekend:


33

Lionel Messi scored his 33rd La Liga hat-trick in the course of Barcelona's 4-1 win away to Real Betis, also his 45th hat-trick for Barcelona across all competitions. He also has six hat-tricks for the Argentina national team, taking his overall tally in competitive...

Arsenal ready to embrace pressure of either Champions League path

Paul Mariner and the FC panel agree that Arsenal kept their momentum going from their weekend win over Man United against a lacklustre Rennes side.

All of a sudden, Arsenal's season feels alive with possibility. They are used to flirting with disaster and that is why there was little surprise when, a week ago, they threw away a promising position in Rennes to land on the brink of elimination from the Europa League. It is also why their consummate 3-0 dismissal of the French side on Thursday felt unfamiliar: like a confident and battle-hardened team mastering an unenviable situation in the manner of potential competition winners.

Man United's defeat at Arsenal exposes (a little) the size of Solskjaer's challenge

Winning has two ancillary effects. On the one hand, it gives you sporting capital. Folks point to your record and are more likely to overlook a stumble or a bad decision. That, in turn, means you can be that little bit more daring and experimental, which is a good thing.

On the other hand it raises expectations, sometimes unrealistically so, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer experienced the former on Sunday in Manchester United's 2-0 loss away to Arsenal.
