The big story doing the rounds today (Tuesday) is still Alexandre Lacazette’s move to Arsenal but there’s also plenty of other news and gossip that you may not want to miss.
Here are the five Arsenal stories that you won’t want to miss today.
5. Lacazette deal edges closer
The 26-year-old is apparently in London to complete his move to Arsenal with the announcement set to take place in the coming days.
There were reports that Arsenal’s photographers were awaiting the striker at Colney but the images which accompanied these claims were proven to be fake.
4. Mbappe and his father meet with PSG
Mbappe and his dad have apparently had a successful meeting with PSG, who have reassured him that he’ll be the main man if he signs for them.
Monaco are obviously reluctant to sell the 18-year-old to their direct rivals and the striker is said to still not have come to a conclusion either way.
3. Bad news for Cazorla
While Arsenal haven’t confirmed the news that Santi Cazorla has suffered yet another setback, his injury record makes it likely that the reports are true.
This latest setback is said to be severe enough to keep the midfielder out until April so, with just one year left on his current Arsenal deal, it’s unlikely that we’ll see the little Spaniard play for the club again.
2. Will Giroud stay or will he go?
One minute Olivier Giroud wants to stay at Arsenal, then he’s going to West Ham, then he’s signing for Everton, then he’s staying again…?
Speaking to the Arsenal Weekly Podcast, he said: “I won a few titles in my career, that is an important thing, but there is another thing which is important for me. And that’s the people [see you as a] loyal warrior on the pitch – that you always give your best for the team.
“And that’s why I want to carry on my good journey at Arsenal and I always want to give my best. I would love to win another title, or maybe more until the end of my contract. The motivation is here, always doing your best to make your family proud.”
We can’t keep up.
1. Alexis Sanchez set to stay at Arsenal
It’s the news everyone’s been hoping for: it looks as if Alexis could… COULD… bestaying at Arsenal next season, as Arsene Wenger always said he would, even if it means running down the final year of his contract.
