Arsenal announced on Saturday that Freddie Ljungberg was leaving the club in order to pursue head coach opportunities. It was sad, but understandable. Let’s hope he means it when he says he’ll be back.

Hello Andreas?

Mikel Arteta held talks with Andreas Georgson about joining his backroom staff and the highly-regarded, set-piece Swedish expert, could already be at the club.

Welcome back fans?

Arsenal have set a date for getting fans back inside the Emirates, but will the pandemic allow them to meet it?

Regardless, the Premier League are unlikely to allow any away fans back into stadium crowds in the upcoming season, according to a report.

Aubas cars

As we all wait for the announcement that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has signed a new Arsenal deal, he’s been showing off all the cars he owns.

Mikel Arteta reportedly wants Dennis Bergkamp to join his coaching staff after Freddie Ljungberg’s departure and I’m doing all I can to keep myself calm.

Arsenal’s women went out of the Champions League on Saturday night, losing 2-1 against PSG Feminines. They will, therefore, not play in next season’s competition as they had to win it this year to qualify after missing out via the league.

Arsenal surprised everyone when they completed the signing of 17-year-old former Feyenoord midfielder Salah-Eddine Oulad M’hand on a free transfer as there hadn’t been a sniff of it in the media.

He will wear the number 74 shirt.

Gabriel done

All accounts seem to believe that Arsenal have full and total agreement with Lille over the signing of Gabriel Magalhaes and with the player about joining Arsenal. Gabriel is expected to be announced as an Arsenal player this week and will probably get the number 6 shirt.

Gabriel will have (another) Arsenal medical on Tuesday.

Thia-go?

Arsenal have apparently ‘checked’ on Thiago Alcantara at Bayern Munich with the club eyeing the midfielder who is up for sale. They’d also like the Germans to lower his £23m price tag.

No swap

There’s no real possibility of a swap deal between Arsenal and Juventus involving Daniele Rugani and Hector Bellerín, according to a report.

Two to go?

Napoli are apparently looking at a couple of Arsenal defenders as potential alternatives to Gabriel Magalhaes in the summer market, according to reports from Italy.

Ceballos to return?

Arsenal apparently have Dani Ceballos’ approval for another move this summer, but his future now depends on Zinedine Zidane and Real Madrid.

Lucas a Gonner?
