I am not sure how reliable the Italian journalist’s sources are, but it is an interesting story. If it is true then Isco could be heading to north London, if of course another club does not put in a bigger offer for the playmaker.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes young forward Alex Iwobi is progressing well in his development, and could well be given more game time with the first-team this season as a result of the form he’s shown when called upon. The 19-year-old delivered a good performance in Arsenal’s 2-1 win against Burnley in the FA Cup fourth round in only his third start for the Londoners. His manager was glowing in his praise of the teenager, and believes he’s confounded his critics who dismissed his potential in the past.

Arsenal defender Calum Chambers recently revealed how much he’s learning from the players in training and how hard he’s working to compete for a starting place. The England international has found game time limited, but has been training to adjust to being a holding-midfielder, and he believes that could see him getting more action in the second-half of the season.

“If you are (able to play) in different positions it gives you more of a chance to play and having the knowledge where you want the ball in different positions. I’m just concentrating on getting games and training hard and trying to get myself in the squad and the team. I want to be in the first team now. I’m training as hard as I can and learning. I’m pleased with how things have gone,” he said.

Posted on January 28, 2016 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Mirror, Arsenal are set to battle it out with Tottenham for the services of Leicester’s highly-rated young defender Ben Chilwell.

The Gunners are reported to be long-term admires of the 19-year-old left-back, but it seems that Tottenham now hold an interest in the youngster and are believed to have sent scouts to check out the youngster in action.

The Mirror claims that Arsenal had a bid around £3million rejected by the Foxes for the youngster in the summer, but could now be quick to renew their interest. Tottenham had first-hand experience of the youngster’s talent recently, as he appeared in both FA Cup clashes against Spurs.

Loaning out Mathieu Debuchy is the right decision 0

Posted on January 27, 2016 by David Nugent

According to the Guardian, Sunderland and Aston Villa are vying for the signature of Arsenal’s French international right-back Mathieu Debuchy. The 30-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium, with Hector Bellerin now first choice for the Gunners.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is now believed to be willing to allow the £12million signing from Newcastle leave on a loan deal on a loan basis, which could prove a clever move.

Rumours of Aubameyang deal seem like myth 1

Posted on January 27, 2016 by David Nugent

As usual the same names have been reeled-off by the media as potential Arsenal target targets. Karim Benzema, Edinson Cavani and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have all supposedly been spotted in London hotels, or are about to arrive at the Gunners training ground for a medical.

When in truth is probably that none of the trio have ever been anywhere signing for Arsenal. The Daily Star may just have trumped everybody with their rubbish of the day story about the Gunners spending £76million on Aubameyang, because German legend Lothar Mattheus stated he would be available for that fee.  They later published Dortmund’s reply to the rumours.
