According to the Guardian, Arsenal and Tottenham are in a transfer battle to land Manchester United centre-back Eric Bailly in the January transfer window.
Both clubs are looking to strengthen at the heart of their defences, for different reasons. It seems that Bailly has become a prime target for the north London pair.
Endured mixed fortunes at United
When Bailly arrived at United in 2016 from Villarreal for a fee of around £30million, the Ivory Coast international was seen as the answer to the Red Devils central defensive problems. .......Read more here.....

One of the main concerns when Unai Emery first arrived at Arsenal this summer was the defence. The defensive situation has not changed radically and the team could still be slightly more solid. However, at the minute the way the attacking players are performing, the defensive issues have been cast aside.
Fantastic second half at Fulham
The Gunners 5-1 win at Fulham on Sunday was a superb result. However, at half time the game was truly in the balance at 1-1. Emery’s side had not produced first 45 minutes of football. .......Read more here.....

According to the Times, Italian club Internazionale are in pole position to sign Bordeaux’s Brazilian starlet Malcom. Inter have reportedly offered an initial fee of around £8.8million to sign the youngster on loan before the deal becomes permanent next summer for a fee of £26.5million.
Malcom had reportedly previously been a transfer target for Arsenal. However, that was during Arsene Wenger’s reign as Gunners boss.
Malcom a talented youngster
Last summer and in January, there were persistent rumours that Arsenal were on the verge of signing the youngster. One of the biggest reasons for the reports was the potential of the youngster. .......Read more here.....

File this one under the “wait, what?” section.
The rumour mill in football is a funny thing. Sometimes it can throw up moves that are genuine possibilities that you can start talking about in a realistic way. Sometimes, however, it throws up some utterly bizarre ideas that leave you wondering whether or not we’re being taken for a ride. This specific article focuses on the latter, with Arsenal apparently being interested in acquiring the services of Tottenham Hotspur striker Son Heung-min. .......Read more here.....

Highly-rated Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure revealed three Premier League clubs are interested in signing him, while he also stated his preference which is set to be music to Arsenal fans’ ears.
Doucoure appeared on a French talk show Telefoot where he was subjected to a series of questions dealing with his future at Watford.

Arsenal are reportedly interested in signing highly-rated youngster Ben Wilmot but the London side face a battle with Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur as the Stevenage defender has been attracting a lot of interest.

The loss was one that consigned Arsenal to their eighth defeat of the season, while they are now seven points behind Tottenham in fifth, and eight behind Chelsea in fourth. .......Read more here.....

Paul Merson has questioned the intensity of Arsenal’s front three as they struggled to give Tottenham’s defence any kind of problems in their Premier League derby last weekend.

The victory has seen Tottenham open up a seven-point lead over the Gunners, while Chelsea in fourth are eight points ahead of Arsene Wenger’s men. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal has a reputation for failing to show up in big games. Saturday’s north London derby 1-0 defeat by Tottenham was a prime example. Yet, the previous week the Gunners smashed Everton 5-1 at home. The two results suggest that Arsene Wenger’s team are just track bullies.
Good enough to a point
For me, until the January transfer window, it felt like the quality of the Arsenal squad was deteriorating. The signings of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan were good signings. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal returned to type on Saturday afternoon, suffering a 1-0 defeat at arch-rivals Tottenham in the north London derby.
The Gunners kept the home side relatively quiet at Wembley in the first half of Saturday’s game. However, in the second half, Mauricio Pochettino’s side could have added to their one-goal lead.
Arsene Wenger’s side did have some limited chances in the second period. However, it would be a stretch to say that Arsenal deserved anything out of the game.
Big attacking players failed to turn up .......Read more here.....
