Emirates Stadium side set to welcome in Barcelona & Southampton stars.

Check in to France vs Nigeria

Two World Cup stars are apparently on their way to the Emirates Stadium with respected iTELE Mundial journalist Francois Pinet claiming France midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin and Chilean attacker Alexis Sanchez are both on their way to the north London club.

Barcelona’s 25 year old forward Sanchez will offer Wenger some much needed quality up front as he seeks to beef up an attack that overly relied upon Olivier Giroud last season.

Sanchez had a superb season at Barcelona last term, scoring 19 goals in 27 La Liga starts, but could be set for a Nou Camp exit with incoming boss Luis Enrique perhaps ready to re-shuffle his squad.

Southampton’s defensive midfielder Schneiderlin has seen Rickie Lambert and Luke Shaw follow boss Mauricio Pochettino to a St Mary’s exit and may feel the time is right to follow suit.

The tough tackling 24 year old has helped the south-coast side from League One to the top half of the Premier League and now that he has forced his way into the French national team set-up may be looking to take the next step ‘up’ to a side that can offer him a first taste of Champions League action.

Schneiderlin could be seen as a more viable long term option than veterans Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini.
