Premier League leaders Arsenal have their focus on a third straight win in all competitions ahead of their North London Derby clash with Tottenham Hotspur this weekend. The two North London teams have started the new Premier League season well and they occupy two of the top three teams on the log. They will meet to examine their respective league title credentials at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday lunchtime.
North London side Tottenham Hotspur reportedly inserted a £30m buyback clause into the transfer that took England international Kyle Walker-Peters from Spurs to fellow Premier League team Southampton two years ago. The said buyback clause has been revealed by The Athletic in the wake of the interest in the player’s services from Arsenal and Manchester United.

Several newspapers from England are claiming that Arsenal are contemplating selling star striker Alexandre Lacazzette in the summer. According to the Daily Star, Lacazette could be part of the summer clear out at the Emirates.

One of the biggest transfer targets for this summer Alexis Sanchez looks set to remain at the Emirates for the forthcoming season, according to reports in England.
He is set to see off his final ten months left at the Emirates before he exits for free next year.
Arsene Wenger insisted that the Chile international would not be allowed to leave the club no matter the amount offered. After back and forth, it seems the player would remain in north London.
