'I'm looking at transfer targets' - Wenger drops Arsenal future hint

Manchester City must move on from Sunday's FA Cup semi-final loss to Arsenal and focus on getting a win in the Premier League derby against Manchester United, defender Jesus Navas has said.

Alexis Sanchez scored in extra-time to secure a 2-1 win at Wembley and send the Gunners into the final for the third time in four years.

"Alexis Sanchez was like the team", he said. Slowly, we became better and better and in the second half I felt we were very strong, in extra-time very strong, we always looked solid and unsafe. He's an animal, constantly willing to kill the adversary.

"Danny Welbeck comes in and gives them a different dimension, when he takes the game from one penalty box to another with his great loping stride".

"I think he deserves that and hopefully now we can kick on and win it for him".

Arsenal has faced fierce criticism for a campaign that has seen it crash out of the Champions League at the last-16 sage and sit seventh in the Premier League with under a month of the season to play.

"You can be divided or united and we have shown the right response".

Goalkeeper Cech, while relishing the prospect of a final showdown against his former club Chelsea, said: "Obviously the FA Cup is at the end of the season so there's a lot to happen before we play that game".

"We are in the final now so have something to look forward to", Ramsey told Arsenal's official website.

"That is the second time we played this formation so credit to the boys".

The British media reported that French club Marseille are looking to sign Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud at the end of the season. "We've been quite successful in recent years and you can see the passion that the players play with".

Asked at his post-match press conference if Arsenal's Wembley display gave him optimism for next season, Wenger replied: "I don't understand your question".

"We went through a hard period".
