Good morning Arsenal fans
Arsenal’s midfield once again dominates the transfer talk.
Napoli have been linked with Albert Sambi Lokonga as the Belgian is reportedly unhappy with his small role for the Premier League leaders.
Lokonga hoped this would be his breakthrough season but instead boss Mikel Arteta still favors Thomas Partey.
And Arteta is expected to target two big signings in January.
So it wouldn’t be a surprise if Lokonga moved on to make room.
The Gunners are said to be keen on Marco Asensio.
But the 26-year-old Spanish wideman took time off from the World Cup to insist he wants to stay at Real Madrid for “10 more years”.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are said to be increasing their offer for Palmeira midfielder Danilo after the World Cup.
And long-term target Youri Tielmans is still seen as an option for Arteta as he nears the end of his Leicester contract.
Finally, Bukayo Saka, England’s star against Iran, was one of the many weak players in last night’s 0-0 draw against USA in Qatar.
