Arsenal suffer transfer blow with Michael Olise 'set to reject move to the Emirates'

Arsenal suffer transfer blow with Michael Olise 'set to reject move to the Emirates'

This is not what Gunners fans wanted to hear.

Arsenal transfer target Michael Olise looks set to reject a move to the Emirates this summer, according to fresh reports.

The Gunners are currently leading the Premier League title race, but lost valuable ground against West Ham on Sunday.

It was the second game in a row that Mikel Arteta's side blew a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2, after making the very same mistake at Anfield the previous week.

The result leaves Arsenal four points clear of second-placed Manchester City, with a mouth-watering clash scheduled at the Etihad in just over a week's time, when both sides will battle it out for the title.

But in the midst of the drama, Arteta will have half an eye on the summer transfer window, with the Spaniard keen to add a winger to his ranks for next season.

One of the names rumoured with a move to north London is Crystal Palace winger Olise, although the player looks set to turn down the Gunners should an offer materialise.

Arsenal dealt Olise transfer blow

Olise has been in scintillating form for the Eagles recently, helping his side to three consecutive victories which have all but ended the club's relegation fears. In turn, he has allegedly caught the attention of the Gunners.

However, The Sun claim that Olise plans to stay at Selhurst Park next season, with the Frenchman eager to establish some consistency.

Wilfried Zaha is another Palace attacker linked with a move to the Emirates this summer, with the 30-year-old yet to commit to fresh terms.

According to Spanish journalist Santi Aouna, Arsenal are interested on signing the Ivory Coast international on a free transfer.

While Cristiano Ronaldo's club Al-Nassr are reportedly keen to bring him to Saudi Arabia, with Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund also said to be keeping tabs on the Palace star.
