Arsenal have apparently been given a double blow in their effort to strengthen the midfield section. The two players they’ve recently been linked the most in that aspect are Houssem Aouar of Olympique Lyon and Thomas Partey of Atletico Madrid.

According to The Telegraph, Aouar and his representatives have been contacted by an unnamed Champions League club, and that puts a rather obvious obstacle in the Gunners’ path to bring him to the Emirates. One of those clubs could potentially be Bayern Munich, who lost the services of Thiago Alcantara to Liverpool a few days ago. It has also been claimed that Serie A champions Juventus have been monitoring the 22-year-old for a while with a view of taking him to Turin.

While many fans rarely look twice at the Carabao Cup, it’s still a competition that holds some kind of prestige – if only because it’s been going on for so long now. Arsenal will be entering the field of play this week as they prepare to lock horns with Leicester City in the third round, knowing that a win could set them on their way to another Wembley appearance.

There’s some sense of normality behind people moaning about the Carabao Cup, and even if there are some out there who won’t watch, it’ll be an intriguing game between two of the Premier League’s finest.

Arsenal have completed and officially confirmed the signing of goalkeeper Runar Alex Runarsson from Dijon. The amount of the fee for this transfer remains undisclosed, but reports suggest Arsenal will be paying just over £1 million for the services of the Iceland international.

The Gunners parted ways with Emiliano Martinez recently, with the 27-year-old now gone to take the next step in his career at Aston Villa. This left them momentarily without a backup option for first-choice goalkeeper Bernd Leno, and that is where Runarsson comes in.

Arsenal had to go through the wars against West Ham United on Saturday night, but in the end, they were able to get the job done as they secured their second straight win of the new Premier League season. The Hammers put up a pretty good fight and looked like they were going to come away with a result, but a late goal from youngster Eddie Nketiah ensured that the Gunners kept up their strong 100% start to the new season.

After the game, manager Mikel Arteta spoke with the media in the wake of what turned out to be a pretty tense affair.

Arsenal edge past West Ham at the Emirates 0

Arsenal were able to kickstart their new Premier League campaign with a win over Fulham last weekend, and heading into their clash with West Ham United, the expectation was that they’d make it two from two. They did manage to do that, but boy oh boy did they make hard work of it at the Emirates.

At some points it was pretty clear to see that the Gunners just weren’t at the races and while you have to commend them for picking up the three points, there’s nothing wrong in throwing a few criticisms their way, either. Mikel Arteta is still in the early stages of building his first team, and it’s going to take some time before they really start to thrive as a unit.

Arsenal are absolutely flying to start off the new Premier League season, from the positive signing of Gabriel to beating Fulham 3-0 to getting Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to sign a new contract with the club. This weekend, they’ll be attempting to keep that positive run of form going when they take part in their second straight London derby of the campaign – this time against West Ham United.

Mikel Arteta took part in his usual pre-match press conference prior to the game against the Hammers, and it’s safe to say that a whole lot of topics came up.

While Arsenal may have gotten off to a flying start in the Premier League last weekend against Fulham, there are still a handful of issues that need to be resolved. A few of those problems stem from injuries and while the Gunners do have a near enough fully fit squad, there are two players that are still working their way back up to full fitness.

Kolasinac in Leverkusen talks

After goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, who left to join Aston Villa, Sead Kolasinac could be the next senior player to leave the Emirates in this transfer window. According to PA Sport, the Bosnian left back is currently in talks with Bayer Leverkusen about a proposed return to Germany.

Kolasinac gradually lost his place on the left defensive flank to Kieran Tierney, and though Mikel Arteta has utilized him in a back three, some howling mistakes clearly indicated that he can’t be a long-term solution there either.

Emiliano Martinez has left Arsenal and joined Aston Villa, it has been officially confirmed by both clubs.

The 28-year-old Argentinian joined Arsenal reserves 10 years ago, but most of his time on the club’s books was spent on numerous loans. Last summer, he returned from his temporary spell at Reading to act as the first deputy to regular number one choice Bernd Leno, and when the German injured his ligaments in a clash with Brighton and Hove Albion’s Neal Maupay on June 25, he finally got a proper chance to show what he can do.
