With just one game on Monday featuring Arsenal players to entertain us, a little more gossip than we’ve had lately creeped into the equation.

That game saw Petr Cech and Tomas Rosicky lose to a Hector Bellerin-less Spain. The youngster was on the bench with Juanfran picked ahead of him. Nothing much of note happened in the game apart from Tom setting a new record.

In other news, Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng was talking about how an Arsenal legend inspired him, Kelechi Nwakali confirmed, again, that he’s signed for Arsenal. I think he really has this time, although we await official confirmation.  His chum, who was meant to be signing with him, is off to Porto.

In gossip, we’re heavily linked with Elseid Hysaj, but things might not be as they seem with that, something I investigated here. Same with Edinson Cavani, who is allegedly back on Arsenal’s radar but, well, you can read for yourself here what’s going on with that.

Other players linked include Samuel Umititi, whom Chelsea are supposed to be moving for, Ramadan Sobhi who Stoke have bid for, and a few others that we’ll investigate more over the coming days on the site.

As always, if you’ve come across a rumour you’d like us to investigate, or have spotted some news you think should be covered or dug into, let us know on Twitter or by sticking an [email protected] before the dailycannon.com.
