Here are the freshest from Arsenal:
Arteta may have signed Gabriel Jesus and Oleksander Zinchenko from Manchester City, and given their success, he may be tempted to bring Kevin De Bruyne to the Emirates. However, Arsenal legend Tony Cascarino believes Arteta already has his own De Bruyne and that this is not necessary.
"One player that stood out, he’s so much like Kevin De Bruyne, is [Martin] Odegaard," Tony said, as per TBR. "His ability to pass the ball, move it, and you have to give a lot of credit to [Mikel] Arteta because he had been on loan and he didn’t send him back.
"He made him one of his primary recruitments, the one he wanted to bring through the door, and he’s so gifted."
With Nicolas Pepe gone, could Arsenal correct their 2019 summer transfer blunder of selecting Pepe over Wilfred Zaha? According to HITC, Arsenal could go that route because the Ivory Coast international is one player the Gunners are keeping an eye on before the transfer window closes this week. Zaha's contract expires next summer, and there's no sign of him extending it, so Palace could cash in on the 29-year-old.
So far, Arsenal are the closest to signing him in the Premier League: "And if Arsenal can sign a proven Premier League star at his peak, for much less than what he would cost ordinarily, then it’s so difficult to argue that that wouldn’t be a stunning piece of business by Edu and Mikel Arteta at the Emirates Stadium," writes Shane Callaghan of HITC.
