The club have made a slightly improved offer to the player.

According to the London Standard, Arsenal will hold talks later today with former PSG boss Unai Emery about becoming the clubs new boss. Former Arsenal captain and Manchester City coach Mikel Arteta was reported to be close to the job. However, it now seems the north London club want to speak to Emery before any appointment.

Emery an interesting choice

Unai Emery would certainly be an interesting choice of replacement for veteran boss Arsene Wenger, who is leaving the role after 22 years with the club this summer.

It’s time for yet another trip down memory lane, but unfortunately, this one isn’t quite as favourable. Twelve months ago today Arsenal finished off their strong end to the Premier League season with a convincing 3-1 victory over Everton, but unfortunately, the Gunners missed out on a spot in the top four as a result of Liverpool running out 3-0 winners over Middlesbrough.

Arsene Wenger’s side needed to ensure that they bettered Liverpool’s result in order to stand any chance of qualifying for Europe’s top club competition, but for the first time in what felt like forever, they failed.

As reported by Mirror, it seems as if Mikel Arteta and Jack Wilshere are destined to be at the Emirates with Arsenal next season. Mikel is far and away the favourite to take over as manager in the wake of Arsene Wenger’s departure, whereas Wilshere’s ongoing contract situation finally seems to be sorting itself out as he prepares to sign on the dotted line of a new three-year deal.

According to the Metro, Arsenal are set to compete with a host of rival Premier League clubs to sign Bayer Leverkusen starlet Leon Bailey this summer. The 20-year-old is also reported to be of interest to Chelsea and Manchester United.

However, the Premier League trio are not the only ones interested in the highly-rated winger. Reports from German suggest that Bayer has already turned down a £52million off from Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich, telling the Bavarian giants that they want £88million for the Jamaican-born star.

On This Day In 2013: Arsenal seal UCL qualification 0

Posted on May 19, 2018 by Harry Kettle

We’re back for yet another trip down memory lane, and once again, it’s time to look back on another edition of St Totteringham’s Day! Yes, that’s right, five years ago today, Arsenal fans all around the world were celebrating the fact that they’d pipped bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur to fourth spot which ensured they would be playing in the UEFA Champions League for another year.

As sound as that may sound, by 2013, any realistic hopes of Arsenal crashing the title race picture had pretty much been and gone. Because of that, qualifying for the UCL was considered to be the bare minimum that Arsene Wenger should’ve been achieving, and he did so after masterminding a narrow 1-0 victory over Newcastle United.

France boss Didier Deschamps named his 23-man World Cup squad on Thursday. Deschamps has an abundance of talented players to choose from but decided to omit Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette from his squad for Russia 2018.

The decision will have come as a slight surprise for the former Lyon striker after he played in France’s November friendlies, scoring a brace in a 2-2 draw with world champions Germany.

French boss has a lot of attacking talent at his disposal

Deschamps admitted his omission was due to the sheer number of attacking players available to him. The likes of Kylian Mbappe, Olivier Giroud, Antoine Griezmann and Nabil Fekir were all named in that 23-man squad.

Are there benefits to Mikel Arteta? 0

Posted on May 18, 2018 by Harry Kettle

Mikel Arteta is considered to be the frontrunner to become the new Arsenal manager, and isn’t that sentence just a little bit strange? Seriously, doesn’t it just feel a bit odd? After all, the guy is still in his mid-30s, and he was playing for the Gunners as recently as 2016. Plus, his only real form of managerial experience comes as an assistant gaffer to Pep Guardiola at Manchester City – which is a role he’s been in for less than two years.
