Arsenal manager Unai Emery has revealed that he has had talks with Shkodran Mustafi about the defender leaving the Emirates this summer.
Since the Spaniard took over from Arsene Wenger a year ago, it’s fair to say that Mustafi has had quite enough opportunities to convince the new boss that his future lies with the Gunners, and there can now be very little doubt that he has failed to do so. Laurent Koscielny was out injured for the first half of last season, Rob Holding for the second. Even the absence of Hector Bellerin at right-back provided the German with a chance as Emery made it quite clear towards the end of the campaign that he wasn’t counting on Stephan Lichtsteiner anymore. But nothing Mustafi has done on the pitch seems to have helped his cause. .......Read more here.....

As the ever reliable David Ornstein of BBC reports, Arsenal have agreed deals to sign David Luiz from Chelsea and Kieran Tierney from Celtic.
The fee the Gunners will be paying for the services of the Brazilian centre-back is set at £8 million, and he will sign a two-year contract. Luiz was linked with a move to the northern side of the English capital before, but it appears it will truly happen this time around. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal might have lost their star player Alexis Sanchez this winter but all will be forgotten should Arsenal pull off a couple of high-profile transfers that are currently being mentioned in the press.
Arsene Wenger has been given plenty of stick for his transfer policy over the past couple of season during which an apparent lack of high-profile players has been highlighted as the major problem.
The appointment of Sven Mislintat as chief scout seems to have made an instant impact at the Emirates with former Borussia Dortmund man making firm moves to overhaul Arsenal’s outdated scouting system and recruiting service which put too much pressure on Arsene Wenger. .......Read more here.....

Arsene Wenger has denied reports that Arsenal have made a bid to take David Luiz from Premier League rivals Chelsea, whilst also doing the same regarding reports surrounding Monaco’s Thomas Lemar.
The Gunners were held to a hugely disappointing 1-1 draw to bring their 2017 to a close in poor fashion. Alexis Sanchez saw his free-kick deflected in via James McClean in what was surely the winning goal. However, a contentious penalty gave Jay Rodriguez the chance to level the score, which he did. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal are said to be interested in offering the out-of-sorts Chelsea defender David Luiz an escape route out of Stamford Bridge.
The Brazilian defender has fallen out of favour under Antonio Conte and has been involved in only one of 10 games for his team since questioning the manager’s tactics in the 3-0 Champions League defeat at the hands of AS Roma back in October.
Even though the club insists a knee injury is the only thing keeping the 30-year-old defender out of the first team at Chelsea at the moment, it is believed that the story is much deeper than that. .......Read more here.....

On Sunday afternoon, Chelsea and Arsenal played out a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge. The biggest talking about the game turned out to be a late red card for Chelsea defender David Luiz.
Chelsea made a bright start to the game, with former Blues goalkeeper Petr Cech having to produce good saves from Victor Moses and then Pedro. The home side threatened again, as Cesc Fabregas played a one-two with Willian before the Spaniard fire an effort towards goal only for a combination of Danny Welbeck and Cech at the near post to snub out the danger. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal ended a nine-game run without a win against Chelsea in the Premier League with a 3-0 victory over the Blues on Saturday evening.
The first shot on goal came on four minutes. It was the home side who threatened goal first as Santi Cazorla’s effort from the edge of the area was palmed away from Thibaut Courtois. On nine minutes Alexis Sanchez saw an effort on goal deflect over the bar. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal showed great spirit to defeat local-rivals Tottenham 1-0 at White Hart Lane on Sunday. Spurs had more of the ball at times during the north London derby, but the likes of Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny again put in solid displays at the back to keep the home side out.
The victory over Spurs was not pretty on the eye, as Arsenal ground out out the win they needed to keep pace with their rivals. Arsenal sides in recent seasons have struggled to grind out results. .......Read more here.....
