  • GOOD MORNING, ARSENAL FANS

    Arsenal have suffered a potential blow in signing a key target – and we’re not talking about Lionel Messi.

    Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly joined the race to snap up Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey.

    Arsenal are yet to firm up their interest in the shape of a formal bid, and could fall back in their quest to sign the Ghanaian.

    According to ESPN, Champions League finalists PSG have now entered the running to sign Partey.

    And if the Gunners don't act soon, they could miss out on the £45million star.

    But they have secured Dani Ceballos for another season, a loan deal which was announced late last night.

    But Mikel Arteta has let go of Ben Sheaf. The youngster has completed a season-long loan move to Coventry City.

    SunSport revealed the 22-year-old was set to join the Championship side – with an option to buy at the end of the deal for £750,000.

    Meanwhile, a touch of Invincibles magic could soon be about to return to the club.

    Sol Campbell has revealed he would “love to” replace Freddie Ljungberg as Arteta's No2 at Arsenal.

    Campbell made the shock revelation while testing out Marvel's new Avengers game with his fellow Invincibles.

    As soon as Campbell logged on, Robert Pires said: “I have a question for you Sol because Freddie is leaving.

    “Are you interested in the job working with staff and Arteta or not?”

    Without hesitation, Campbell replied: “Yes, I would. If something came up, I would. I would love to.

    “Put my name forward and I will be there.”

  • 'THRILLED'

    Technical director Edu is a very happy man after Dani Ceballos was secured for another year.

    The Real Madrid loanee is back in North London with the Gunners transfer chief revealing his delight to the club website.

    Edu said: “We’re thrilled to have Dani back with us for the new season.

    “We all know his qualities after an impressive 2019/2020 campaign, which ended with him playing a key role in our FA Cup success.

    “We’re excited to add Dani to the list of quality players we are bringing in.”

  • WE GOT SOL

    Sol Campbell has praised Mikel Arteta for adding a “breath of fresh air” into the team.

    The Gunners have won the FA Cup and Community Shield in recent weeks, raising the ex-defender’s hopes.

    He told talkSPORT: “Arsenal were looking for a breath of fresh air and they’ve got it in Mikel. That’s key really. Players are responding and players are willing to run for each other.

    “Young players are coming in and getting a chance and all the players are inspired by the young players. Everyone is feeding off each other in a positive way. That’s key for me.

    “Edu is there as well and there’s a nice relationship there. It seems to be working really well.

    “They have to go from strength to strength now and keep the positivity.”

  • ART OF THE DEAL

    Mikel Arteta is delighted to have Dani Ceballos back for another year at Arsenal.

    The midfielder has joined from Real Madrid for a second season-long loan.

    And Arteta told the club website:“Dani was and integral part of our team last season and finished the season in excellent form.

    “I love Dani’s passion and commitment and he’s a highly skilful player. We’re all delighted to welcome him back and we look forward to seeing him pick up where he left off.”

  • BREAKING

    It sure is!

    Dani Ceballos rejoins Arsenal on a season-long loan from Real Madrid.

  • DANI BOY

    Dani Ceballos has posted a highlights reel of his time on loan at Emirates Stadium.

    Is a return to Arsenal imminent?!

  • OH TIER

    Kieran Tierney played the full 90 as Scotland drew 1-1 with Israel at Hampden Park, after a late goal from Eran Zahavi.

    It was a better night for Sead Kolasinac and Daniel Ballard.

    Bosnia earned a 1-1 draw in Florence to take a valuable Nations League point off Italy.

    And Northern Irish debutant Ballard played the entirety of a 1-1 draw at Romania, secured with an 86th minute leveller.

  • TOP KOLA

    Sead Kolasinac's Bosnia lead Italy by a goal to nil in Florence.

    An Edin Dzeko goal has put the visitors ahead in the Nations League Group 1A game.

    A clean sheet against the Azzurri would be a hell of a statement to Mikel Arteta from the left-back…

  • YOUNG GUNS

    A host of academy prospects were brought into first-team training at Colney today.

    New signing Salah-Eddine, 17, worked with Mikel Arteta and the senior side.

    Playmaker Catalin Cirjan was also involved, as were Tyreece John-Jules, James Olayinka and Tolaji Bola.

    Check out the emphatic finish below.

    Bukayo Saka also played an hour in Pristina.

  • EDDIE THE EAGLE

    Eddie Nketiah bagged a hat-trick for England Under-21s as they swept aside Kosovo in Pristina.

    With the first three goals of a 6-0 rout, the striker showed he is in hot form ahead of the new campaign.

  • ALF OFF

    Arsenal youngster Alfie Matthews, 18, has left the club.

    The striker’s contract expired at the end of last season but he was allowed to continue training with the Gunners.

    Earlier in the summer, he teased a “big move” via his Instagram account and he is said to have undergone a trial at Crystal Palace.

  • TOP TIER

    Kieran Tierney starts for Scotland against Israel.

    The Group B2 Nations League clash kicks off at 7.45pm from Hampden Park.

    Meanwhile, Bosnia face Italy in Group 1A with Sead Kolasinac at left-back for the visitors in Florence.

    And there is a first cap for academy defender Daniel Ballard as Northern Ireland face Romania.

  • BACK’D OFF

    Arsenal have a fair few big-name players who very nearly signed for the club, before deciding to head elsewhere.

    Will Emil Roback become one of them?

    The ex-Hammarby teenager decided to join AC Milan despite holding talks with the Gunners, their sporting director has stated.

    Sempre Milan quote the Swedish club chief as saying: “Arsenal contacted us and we know of their interest.

    “Emil met them but there are also other clubs. Several big clubs in Europe have looked for Emil, we have agreed with two clubs, so it was Emil who made the final choice.”

  • CLEAR UP THE MES

    Sol Campbell has urged Arsenal and Mesut Ozil to work together and revive the German’s career.

    After being sidelined by Mikel Arteta, the playmaker looks set to spend his final year at the club out of the team, with his contract expiring in June.

    Campbell told talkSPORT: “Obviously, internally there is something going on. It’s all there for everyone to see. I think it’s going to come down to how they approach it and the conversations they have in private.

    “How Ozil trains and things like that. It’s really going to come down to that. They need to come together somehow but if there’s a standoff then nothing is going to happen.

    “Someone’s got to give and to give in is not always to lose. You don’t always have to give in and it means you are losing.

    “It’s just sometimes you have to meet halfway.”

  • PLAYING THEIR PART

    Arsenal have been joined by Paris Saint-Germain in the race to sign Atletico Madrid star Thomas Partey, reports claim.

    The 27-year-old has been on the Gunners' radar for some time, as Mikel Arteta looks to bolster his midfield options this summer.

    But Arsenal are yet to firm up their interest in the shape of a formal bid, and could fall back in their quest to sign the Ghanaian.

    According to ESPN, Champions League finalists PSG have now entered the running to sign Partey.

    And if the Gunners don't act soon, they could miss out on the £45million star.

  • YOUNG LIONS

    Keep an eye out for England Under-21s as they kick off in 40 minutes.

    Bukayo Saka and Eddie Nketiah are in the line-up to face Kosovo.

    Reiss Nelson is on the bench and we will keep you up to date with all the Gunners lads in action.

  • NAP IT IN THE BUD

    Napoli are working on a deal to sign Sokratis Papastathopoulos from Arsenal.

    The Italian club's president Aurelio De Laurentiis has revealed a deal is in the works.

    But he also made clear he is no fan of the murky world of the transfer market.

    He told Naples' Radio Kiss Kiss: “We're working on it.

    “The transfer market is a laugh. In the world of football, balls swell out of proportion, it seems that you are talking to people who are blackmailers.”

  • WILLING HIM ON

    William Saliba is in high demand in North London right now.

    Looking forward to seeing him in action, Gooners?

  • DOUZ NO DEAL

    Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly rejected the chance to bring Arsenal outcast Matteo Guendouzi to Ligue 1.

    Les Parisiens have been linked with a move for the 21-year-old all summer, with the Gunners said to be demanding a £40million fee.

    The North Londoners are keen to offload the ex-Lorient midfielder as they look to raise funds to activate Thomas Partey's release clause at Atletico Madrid.

    Guendouzi has been frozen out of the squad ever since his antics away at Brighton on June 20.

    But in a blow for Arsenal, PSG apparently have no intention of signing the French youth international.

    According to the Telegraph, Thomas Tuchel's side have turned down the player as they have no interest in him.

    However they do state that PSG remain keen on prising right-back Hector Bellerin away from the Emirates.

  • WILL POWER

    Brazilian winger Willian has reported to training for Arsenal!

  • BUK TO THE FUTURE

  • GUNNS OUT

    Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has already splashed the cash this summer, bringing in Gabriel Magalhaes for £27m and Willian on £220,000-a-week.

    But the Gunners, who showed signs of life under the Spaniard towards the end of last season, don't want their summer of spending to end there.

    In order to bring in more new faces, however, the North Londoners will have to raise funds by shipping out existing players.

    Some difficult decisions will have to be made, with some of their FA Cup-winning heroes potentially on the chopping block.

    So, without further ado, let's take a look at who could be shunted out by the Gunners in the coming weeks.

  • SOL SURVIVOR

    Sol Campbell has revealed he would “love to” replace Freddie Ljungberg as Mikel Arteta's No2 at Arsenal.

    The Swedish icon, 43, left the club last month to pursue his own managerial career.

    Campbell made the shock revelation while testing out Marvel's new Avengers game with fellow his fellow Invincibles.

    As soon as Campbell logged on, Robert Pires said: “I have a question for you Sol because Freddie is leaving.

    “Are you interested in the job working with staff and Arteta or not?”

    Without hesitation, Campbell replied: “Yes, I would. If something came up, I would. I would love to.

    “Put my name forward and I will be there.”

    Pires laughed as he responded: “I will send a message to Edu.”

  • YOUNG PLAYER OF THE YEAR

    Arsenal starlet Bukayo Saka has been nominated for the PFA Young Player of the Year award.

    Other nominees include Trent Alexander-Arnold, Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood, Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount.
