GOOD MORNING GUNNERS FANS
Arsenal will face either Southampton or Shrewsbury Town in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
And if they manage to cruise through the round, they’ll go on to face either Chorley or Wolves.
Fenerbahce president Ali Koc has revealed the club are ‘closer’ than ever to completing the signing of Arsenal outcast Mesut Ozil.
Responding to the recent speculation, Fenerbahce president Koc told Turkish outlet TRT Spor: “Ozil would be a dream for us at Fenerbahce.
“The club knows what the coach wants and our transfer policy is guided by that.
“There hasn’t been an official announcement. What I can say is we are closer than before.”
Arsenal are ready to ditch calamity goalkeeper Alex Runarsson after just four months at the Emirates if they can sign a replacement during the January transfer.
But renewed efforts to lure David Raya from Brentford are unlikely to succeed after the Spaniard signed a new Bees contract in October.
Icelandic international Runarsson has failed to impress as back-up to Bernd Leno since his £1million move from Rennes in September.
Rob Holding is seen as an emerging leader by boss Mikel Arteta and Edu, according to The Athletic.
The 25-year-old very nearly joined fellow Premier League side Newcastle United on loan last summer, so this new revelation indicates quite a turnaround.
The report states that both Arteta and Edu – two big decision makers – hold Holding in high regard and see him as an important player for the future.
Arsenal are reportedly ready to test Norwich’s resolve of Emiliano Buendia by making an official offer for the playmaker.
It was claimed last month that the Gunners were weighing up a move for the 24-year-old, with Reiss Nelson and Joe Willock to be potentially included in any deal.
Buendia has caught the eye of Mikel Arteta following his dazzling displays this season, with the Arsenal gaffer desperate to add creativity to his side.
No other player in Europe has created more chances than the Argentina youth international this season.
Napoli are eying a move for long-term target Kieran Tierney, according to The Telegraph.
The report states that Napoli were interested in signing the Scotland international when it became clear he was going to leave Celtic at the start of last season.
Arsenal beat the Italian side to the 23-year-olds signature, but Napoli haven’t given up hope.
