Here is Thursday’s news and gossip concerning Arsenal:
Arsene Wenger has hinted that he plans to do some deals in the transfer market before the window shuts next week, according to the Daily Express.
The Gunners have only signed one player so far, but the boss has suggested that that situation may change soon.
“You have specific targets but as well sometimes you get an idea from somebody where you didn’t know that a player that you like was available,” he explained.
One player that may be coming to the Emirates is Dynamo Kiev forward Andriy Yarmolenko, according to the Metro.
The north London side have held talks with the Barcelona and Everton target about a potential move.
However, it appears that Arsenal have missed out on Real Madrid winger Denis Cheryshev, after the Russian confirmed that he plans to stay at the Bernabeu and fight for his place, the Daily Express report.
“We are here to help, when the manager creates opportunities for us to play, we will do so full of enthusiasm because being here is a real privilege,” he said.
Arsene Wenger has called for technology to be used when making calls over whether a player is in an offside position, according to the Daily Express.
The Gunners were unlucky to have a goal chalked off during their goalless draw with Liverpool, but Wenger insists that it is not just that incident that has led to his support.
“Tomorrow morning it would have my signature, not because we were punished for that goal but because we want justice and the right decisions to be made,” he said.
Finally, injured pair Danny Welbeck and Jack Wilshere are closing in on a return to first-team action, the Daily Express report. However, the pair will not be back in time for the game against Newcastle.
