Arsenal News LIVE: Gunners INQUIRIES about N’Golo Kante, Zaha linked to FREE transfer, Rice UPDATE – latest
Morning Arsenal fans
Eddie Nketiah could give Mikel Arteta his ideal headache on Sunday at West Ham
And the Hammers are reportedly preparing for life after Declan Rice – Arsenal’s dream destination.
It’s exciting gossip for Gunners fans, albeit somewhat offset by ongoing concerns over injured centre-back William Saliba.
Frontman Nketiah is back in training after recovering from injury and is said to be ready for this weekend.
The Englishman was devastated when main striker Gabriel Jesus returned to the team after knee surgery.
But Nketiah’s rapid progress means Arteta will soon have the choices he has long craved.
However, Saliba is still questionable after three games.
Arteta is believed to want him back no later than when his leaders visit title rivals Manchester City on April 26.
It comes as Arsenal’s Prem trip to Chelsea has been postponed from April 29 to May 2 following fresh police advice.
Meanwhile, the Gunners will be battling against Man City, Ajax and Benfica for 17-year-old Flamengo winger Matheus Goncalves.
However, the Brazilian is under contract until 2025 with a reported £88million release clause.
The Gunners are said to value their Reims loanee Folarin Balogun at £26.5million in light of AC Milan interest rates.
Finally, West Ham are suggested to monitor Kalvin Phillips and Conor Gallagher.
That certainly boosts hopes that his England midfielder Rice will travel to the Emirates in the summer.
