Arsenal are back in action on Sunday as they look to continue their excellent start to the season.
The Gunners edged past PSV on Thursday night to all-but guarantee top spot in their Europa League group, and that win followed a narrow victory of Leeds United in the Premier League last week. Arsenal are guaranteed to remain in top spot after this weekend, but they will want to maintain - or perhaps even extend - their lead when they face Southampton on Sunday.
In the meantime, we have rounded up all the latest transfer news and rumours surrounding the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal are said to be in with a chance of signing Eintracht Frankfurt star Evan Ndicka. Ndicka is out of contract at the end of the season, and Frankfurt still can’t seem to agree a new deal, meaning they may have to sell the defender in the January transfer window.
According to Tutto Juve, Arsenal are one of the clubs ‘very interested’, with reports Frankfurt want £7million in January if they can’t agree a new deal by then. The Bundesliga club want to avoid losing him for free at all costs. Calciomercato say Frankfurt are still working on a new deal, but it seems there could be a chance to strike a deal.
Arsenal star Kieran Tierney says he cannot rule out a return to former club Celtic at some point. “I think when a player who loves the club leaves there’s always that, ‘what if he comes back’ and you can’t rule anything out,” he told BT Sport, as cited by Football Scotland.
“I’m always going to love Celtic, I’m always going to support Celtic so you never know in football, you genuinely don’t. “There was a stage I thought I would never leave Celtic, you never know what can happen like anything, you need to take it game by game.”
