Arsenal: Arteta to Block Barca's Bid for this Player, Defender Becomes New Captain, and More

Charlie Patino

Rumor has it that Arsenal is currently planning on tying down Hale End product Charlie Patino who has apparently attracted the attention of Barcelona. Reports from yesterday have indicated that Barcelona scouts had visited Arsenal’s Under 23 training camp inorder to analyze the young midfielder’s playing style and report their findings back to Camp Nou.

Following this report, Mikel Arteta has moved swiftly to launch contract extension negotiations with the player so that he lengthens his tenure at the Emirates when he turns 18. Inside sources have hinted that it won’t be a difficult task to persuade the youngster to stay because he is very happy at Arsenal and is not planning to leave the club any time soon.

Ben White

As is expected today, Ben White will shoulder a lot of media responsibility and attention especially after Arsenal play against Burnley at Turf Moor. Today’s result will determine whether Arsenal fans will slaughter or praise Ben White because he will certainly be the player who will be looked upon the most in today’s fixture.

Mikel Arteta has always been very supportive towards the 23 year old and today will be no different regardless of the final score at Turf Moor. But with the help of Tomiyasu and Gabriel in the backline today, everything is expected to go on smoothly and less problematic for Ben White.

Leah Williamson

Recently, Arsenal Women’s FC defender Leah Williamson was announced as New Zealand’s new captain after Emma Livid retired from international football at 33. Arsenal fans have been delighted by the announcement and have accordingly congratulated the 24 year old defender for her promotion. The fans have also said that Williamson’s diminutive presence on and off the pitch will be a key ingredient in New Zealand’s race to qualify for the 2023 World Cup.
