According to the Metro, Arsenal are close to completing a deal for Dynamo Moscow striker Aleksandr Kokorin. The 24-year-old is highly-rated and the Metro have picked-up on reports from Russia suggesting Kokorin is close to a move to north London.
The Russia international has previously been linked with moves to Tottenham, Manchester United and PSG. Kokorin scored ten goals in all competitions last season, including two in eight Champions League appearances.
The Gunners have scored just two goals in their opening three Premier League games this season and have failed to score in both their home games. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal have been drawn away at bitter-rivals Tottenham in the third round of the Capital One Cup. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger usually uses the competition to blood youngsters and give players game time.
However, it seems unlikely that Gunners fans will want the veteran Frenchman to do that against their arch-rivals, even if the competition is very low on the clubs list of priorities this season as always. The Gunners are still just odds of 8/1 to win the competition, despite their lack of interest in previous seasons. .......Read more here.....

The France international was mooted as a possible solution to the Gunners defensive midfield conundrum before compatriot Francis Coquelin emerged as first choice in the position. Tottenham were also linked with a bid for the former-Strasbourg star. .......Read more here.....

It seems that every day the Gunners are linked with another French midfielder. Well today is no different as Marseille defensive midfielder Giannelli Imbula is linked with a £15.7million to north London.

According to the Daily Star, Arsenal have agreed a deal to sign Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin his summer, despite the fact that the Frenchman’s odds of joining Tottenham had been slashed.
The Gunners are now the favourites to sign the French midfielder at odds of 6/5 this summer. Two separate sources have apparently confirmed that Schneiderlin is heading to north London to Arsenal and not Spurs.
Morgan Schneiderlin is believed to have been a transfer target for Arsenal for the last few seasons. Last summer he was heavily linked with a move to both Arsenal and Spurs, but Southampton are reported to have refused to sell the highly-rated star. .......Read more here.....

According to the Evening Standard, Tottenham are set to launch a summer bid for reported-Arsenal transfer target Morgan Schneiderlin. The Saints are believed to rate Schneiderlin in the £20million bracket and blocked the Frenchman’s exit last summer.
The Standard claims that Spurs are set to offer either England winger Andros Townsend, or young French midfielder Benjamin Stambouli in part-exchange to sign the highly-rated French international midfielder.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men had a move for Schneiderlin blocked last summer, as the Saints had already lost a raft of their key players to other Premier League clubs. However, they believe they can successfully secure his signature this summer because of his relationship with former-Saints boss Pochettino. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal will face Aston Villa at Wembley in May in the FA Cup final, after the Villans recorded a surprise 2-1 win over Liverpool in the second semi-final on Sunday.
Arsene Wenger’s team will be confident of recording their second consecutive FA Cup final victory over the side from the Midlands. On paper Liverpool looked like the tougher opposition for the final, but relegation-threatened Villa raised their game to defeat the Merseysider’s.
In a strange way maybe playing Brendan Rodgers side in the final would have been better for the Gunners mind set. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal’s winning run will be put to the test by relegation-threatened Burnley on Saturday at Turf Moor. The Gunners recent form has saw them considered by many as potential Premier League title outsiders.
It is a game on paper that Arsene Wenger’s side should and must win if they are to maintain their position in the automatic Champions League qualification spots and keep alive even the faintest hopes of winning the title.
The best way to describe Burnley this season is probably spirited. They unexpectedly gained promotion through sheer graft and being well organised last season. This season has been a similar story, although they may just come up short in the quality department in the Premier League. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal hosts bottom of the table Leicester at the Emirates Stadium looking to bounce back from their weekend derby defeat by Tottenham.

That defeat at Spurs ended the Gunners five game winning run in all competitions. The victory also saw Spurs move above Arsene Wenger’s team in the Premier League table. The Gunners could temporarily move into fourth spot, depending on Spurs result at Liverpool. .......Read more here.....
