It’s all a bit quiet on the Arsenal front at the moment but here’s the latest news and gossip from Friday.
Arsene Wenger has explained why he didn’t sign France’s Dimitri Payet, despite wanting him, earlier in his career – and he’s got a point.
Santi Cazorla, meanwhile, had loads to say about Jack Wilshere – all good.
Alex Iwobi has been talking about that time Arsenal almost released him back when he was a youngster and how he wants to do more for the senior team next season.
Woj also showed off the injury (essentially a big bruise) that he sustained against Northern Ireland and forced him to miss the Poland v Germany clash. As painful as it looks, I’m sure he’ll live.
As far as gossip is concerned, we explained why Lewandowski wouldn’t be coming to Arsenal, shared the sad news that Arteta is most likely off to Manchester City, and revealed that Vardy could end up costing us extra money now that his release clause has increased.
And we explain why Arsenal suffering a ‘blow’ because Cavani may have signed a new deal with PSG is nonsense.
In the Euros, Petr Cech featured in the Czech Republic’s 2-2 draw against Croatia but off the pitch violence overshadowed what was otherwise a brilliant match.
