ESPN says Koscielny has told Unai Emery he will happily train with the reserves until his future is resolved.

The French central defender refused to travel with the Gunners for their pre-season tour of America, telling the club he wanted to leave.

A host of Ligue 1 teams have expressed an interest in Koscielny this summer.

But the defender remains an Arsenal player for foreseeable future due to the none of the French outfits reaching an agreement with the north London side as of yet.

Koscielny and Emery met last week, with the defender telling his manager he would be happy to train with the reserve squad until his exit is secured.

Arsenal have had two offers rejected for the Scotland international, who reportedly wants to join the Premier League club.

And Petrov has warned the Bhoys they must avoid a protracted transfer saga as they look to claim a ninth consecutive Scottish Premiership title.

He told the Sunday Post: "There comes a point in the careers of footballers that they weigh things up and make important decisions.

"Kieran Tierney may be in that position in this transfer window.

"If he goes, then the club will get excellent money for him. If he stays, then they are holding on to a quality footballer.

"But these are the kind of matters that you want resolved as soon as possible. It's important to know where you stand and what needs to be done."

The Morocco international was expected to be one of the first players sold by Ajax after a stellar campaign, in which he contributed 21 goals and 24 assists.

Meanwhile the Gunners have struggled to offload Ozil and his mammoth wage, but Overmars says it wouldn't take much to sign another flourishing attacking midfielder in Ziyech.

Overmars told Voetbal International of Ziyech: "I am a bit surprised that it is still so quiet around Hakim.

"I think he has played better every year and his statistics are exceptionally good.

"Many clubs are increasingly looking at that. They look more at the numbers than at what he shows and what is happening around him.

"I think Hakim Ziyech is better than Mesut Ozil. I would tell Arsenal: sell him and you will get Hakim for half the price. But they didn't listen to me. So it could just be that he stays with Ajax."

"I wanted the No 8, I wore it at Arsenal and when it was free here I had to take it with both hands," Ramsey said.

"I know Marchisio was an unbelievable player, grew up here and had a fantastic career. I spoke to him a couple of times in J Medical.

"If I can emulate what he did for Juventus I would be pretty proud of that. I know it comes with responsibilities but I am ready for that."

He later added: "When I heard that Juventus were interested in me, I thought it would be a dream to come here, as well as a great challenge.

"You can't turn down this opportunity. This is the right club for me. I hope to be a part of the history.

"I think the squad and the players and the manager have all welcomed me very nicely so far. I have spoken to him (Maurizio Sarri) a few times.

"He is very approachable and easy to talk to. I am looking forward to helping my new team-mates. I am looking forward to the challenge and I hope to play my part."

Marca says coach Zinedine Zidane is ready to keep Arsenal and Tottenham target Ceballos at Real Madrid after growing frustrated in his pursuit of Paul Pogba.

Zidane has made no secret of his interest in countryman Pogba, who is eager to leave Manchester United this summer.

But United are digging their heels in and will not settle for anything less than 180m.

Tottenham have been tipped to make a loan move for 22-year-old Ceballos, with Arsenal also believed to be monitoring the situation.

But Real have come to the conclusion they can't find anyone better than Ceballos at a reasonable price.

The Gunners have been linked with Fekir, who was set to move to Liverpool last summer before the deal fell through.

L'Equipe says Arsenal have made their interest known - but have also made it clear they cannot afford to sign him while Ozil is still on the books at the Emirates.

Arsenal are ready to offload 350,000-a-week midfielder Ozil and are even prepared to pay part of his wages to help push through a loan or permanent deal.

But the Gunners are understood to have received no offers so far.

Interestingly, Edu joined Arsenal after leaving his role as general coordinator of the Brazilian national team.

There is believed to be interest from Italy and Spain for the Brazilian winger but Arsenal are keen to secure a winger this summer, giving them the edge.

Koscielny, who refused to board the flight to the US, left his team-mates stunned by striking in a bid to force his way out of the Emirates.

A Gunners insider told football.london: "None of the first team squad could believe it. They were all shocked.

"Everyone at the club couldn't believe their captain would do that - from [Mesut] Ozil all the way down to the academy lads boarding the plane for [their pre-season camp in] Slovakia."

Koscielny is desperate for Arsenal to cut him loose so he can head back to France, where Bordeaux and Lyon are keen to take him.

RMC says Arsenal are not giving up on signing Saliba having seen Tottenham take the lead in their transfer race over the weekend.

Spurs muscled in on the Gunners' prospective deal for the St-Etienne defender by offering 27m (30m) plus bonuses.

But rather than being scared off by that bid, Emirates chiefs have decided to match it.

St-Etienne are now waiting to see who Saliba would rather sign for, as well as if Tottenham will try to get one over on their rivals.
