The physical pressure on "frustrated" Alex Lacazette is massive - Arsene Wenger

Still, the French boss does not think Arsenal fans will feel the same anger over the move that they felt when Van Persie left for the Red Devils.

The Brazilian winger has been in scintillating form for the Ligue 1 side this season and had been identified by the Arsenal manager as a potential replacement for the Manchester United-bound Alexis Sanchez. "And the fact that it will not be one-way traffic, it will be other-way traffic as well [with Mkhitaryan], so that makes the whole thing a bit smoother maybe, a bit less disappointing".

Wenger added: "We took Van Persie when he played in the reserve team at Feyenoord and we [put in] long work with him".

Arsenal's Premier League campaign has been largely underwhelming thus far considering they look poised to miss out on a top four spot for the second time in a row, and the second time in Arsene Wenger's 21-year stay at the club.

"Why? Because we have big players that are at the end of their contract and that is the first time that it happens, that we have such influential players close to the end of their contracts and it has been more destabilising than ever".

Speaking to the press, Arsene Wenger said, ahead of this game: "I am confident yes, but it is down to our performance". "Financially, yes. That doesn't mean that you can not compete on the pitch", said Wenger. "Today it looks ridiculous".

Jose Mourinho and Man Utd will be more relaxed about that scenario, believing they already have convinced Ozil to move, and would prefer to get him on a free transfer as they have cover in the number 10 role.

"We have to revisit the way we structure our club and our scouting policy", he said.

"Certainly these players are not affordable".

"Because they are not competitive on the pitch at the moment, they need to be more competitive with wages".
