    SERGE OF SUCCESS IN LONDON

    Ex-Arsenal player Serge Gnabry took a dig at both of the Gunners’ London rivals, Tottenham and Chelsea, ahead of Germany’s clash with England at Wembley.

    Bayern Munich wideman Gnabry devastated both sides last year in the Champions League and led his team to the top of Europe.

    Germany winger Serge Gnabry and Co are warming up for England on Tuesday

    Gnabry told Bayern’s official website: “So far I’ve done very well when I’ve come back to London, hopefully on Tuesday as well.

    “For me, there’s always a lot of history when we go to England because I still have some friends there as well. Hopefully they’ll be in the stadium.

    “I’ve never played at Wembley before. I personally and we as a team are really looking forward to the game”

    ARSENAL HAPPY TO SHOW AUBAMEYANG IS A DIVER

    Gunners' striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is lapping up pre-season freedom in Mykonos – in contrast to the drama of last summer.

    The Gabon superstar eventually signed a new three-year contract in September 2020 – but struggled to match that big-money deal during a disappointing season.

    Arsenal posted a picture of Aubameyang doing an impressive head-over-heals into a swimming pool, labelling it: "Checking in from Mykanos."

    GUENDOUZI 'WANTS TO JOIN MARSEILLE'

    Matteo Guendouzi and Granit Xhaka seem to be vying to become the first out of Arsenal's batch of unsettled midfielders.

    Roma are strong favourites to land Switzerland star Xhaka, while journalist Fabrizio Romano says France Under-21 ace Guendouzi is keen on joining Marseille.

    ARSENAL TARGET WHITE IS MOST IMPROVED LION

    Phil Foden and Bukayo Saka have both named Ben White as the England player that has impressed them the most on Euro 2020 duty.

    Brighton defender White is closing in on a £50million deal to Arsenal following a standout season.

    Mikel Arteta wants to revamp his squad after the Gunners missed out on European football for the first time in 25 years.

    A string of other clubs had been interested in the England centre-back, 23, including Paris Saint-Germain, Tottenham and Liverpool.

    White was rewarded for his impressive form with a place in the England squad after Trent Alexander-Arnold pulled out through injury.

    And potential new club mate Saka has already hailed the former Leeds United loanee after watching him up close in training.

    When asked by ITV's Gabriel Clarke who has surprised him, the 19-year-old said: "Earlier I said I was impressed the most by Ben White.

    "I haven't seen him a lot this season but coming here and training with him, I've been impressed with him."

    DUEL OVER ALEXANDER

    Arsenal are set to battle Real Madrid over Real Sociedad ace Alexander Isak.

    According to AS, Real are keen on Isak and the same goes for a number of Premier League teams, such as the Gunners.

    In fact, the north Londoners have already made contact with the centre-forward’s representatives and there is a possibility they could meet his release clause, worth €70million (£59m)

    But Sociedad are said to have offered the Sweden international a new deal that would see his release clause boosted to €90m (£77m), which may well put off any suitors in the current market

    TOP TIER DEAL

    Kieran Tierney has signed a new FIVE-YEAR contract with Arsenal worth £110,000 a week.

    The star man left-back said: “Delighted to announce I’ve signed a new long-term deal with the club.

    “I’d just like to thank you all for your support and messages always.

    “Can’t wait to get started next year”

    CAMAVINGA AGENT REACTS

    Rennes ace Eduardo Camavinga’s agent Jonathan Barnett has hinted that the midfielder could be among his clients set for a major move amid interest from Manchester United and Arsenal.

    Barnett told The Athletic: “It is going to be harder. I’m expecting three or four very big deals of my own that will break a lot of records.

    “Hopefully, they’ll come about. For the smaller clubs, I think there won’t be as many transfers. We have some very good players.

    “We have probably the best young player in the world in Camavinga. We’ve got [Jack] Grealish. We’ve got [Ibrahima] Konate at Leipzig. But then I’ve got over 100 players”

    CAMAVINGA SITUATION

    Rennes ace Eduardo Camavinga’s agent has hinted that his client could be on the move during this summer transfer window.

    Camavinga enjoyed a stunning campaign in Ligue 1 and has thus attracted interest from some of Europe’s top bidders, such as Manchester United, Arsenal, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.

    Reports suggest the midfielder will be United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s transfer priority after Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho signs with the club.

    According to The Athletic, the France international’s agent, Jonathan Barnett, who also represents Luke Shaw and other elite players, has hinted that the 18-year-old could be on the move this summer

    CAMAVINGA BOOST

    The same report below from Fabrizio Romano also includes an important update regarding Rennes star Eduardo Camavinga.

    The Gunners seem to be very keen on Camavinga, who had a stunning campaign in Ligue 1 last season.

    However, Romano claims the north Londoners haven’t made an official bid for the France international

    In fact, there has been absolutely no contact between the player and the club

    SELL FIRST, BUY LATER

    Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano claims Arsenal will sell players first in order to fund transfers.

    And it looks like they're on the right track as Granit Xhaka is closing in on Roma and Matteo Guendouzi is keen on joining Marseille.

    Hector Bellerin and Lucas Torreira could be sold for €20million (£17m) each.

    BELLERIN FUTURE

    Hakimi is set to join Paris Saint-Germain while Bellerin seems set to leave the Gunners.

    WHAT’S NEXT?

    England face rivals Germany on Tuesday in Euro 2020’s Last 16.

    This encounter brings back some bad memories for the Three Lions, who will look to exorcise the demons of the past against Joachim Low’s side.

    If Gareth Southgate’s men emerge victorious then the quarter-finals are next.

    And that is where Bukayo Saka and co will face either Ukraine or Sweden

    CAMAVINGA BLOW?

    Manchester United are set to meet with Rennes star Eduardo Camavinga's representatives next week.

    That is according to RMC, who report that United are stepping up their interest for Camavinga.

    That works as a blow for Arsenal, who have also been keeping tabs on the France international who has been dubbed the "new Patrick Vieira".

    CAM AND GET HIM

    Manchester United have been linked with a move for Rennes wonderkid, and Arsenal target, Eduardo Camavinga.

    That is according to the Daily Mail, who claim United could battle the Gunners for Camavinga.

    The Red Devils are closing in on top target Jadon Sancho and are already thinking ahead in the summer transfer window.

    BELLS RINGING

    Hector Bellerin is among the Arsenal players linked with an iminent departure.

    Bellering is said to be keen on a move as he is seeking a new challenge in his career.

    According to Football London, the full-back has a handful of potential suitors.

    That includes the likes of Inter Milan, Atletico Madrid and Villarreal

    WHITE REACTS

    Brighton star Ben White has played down transfer rumours linking him to Arsenal.

    That is mainly because the defender is focused on England's upcoming clash with Germany in Euro 2020's Round of 16.

    White told talkSPORT: “You don’t know what’s true and what’s not.

    "So, there’s no real point talking about it"

    COME AND GUEND HIM

    Arsenal outcast Matteo Gundouzi is likely to sign a new contract with the Gunners.

    That is according to Le10Sport, but that doesn't mean that the north Londoners are planning on holding on to Guendouzi.

    On the contrary, Arsenal are looking to extend his contract in order to preserve his transfer value.

    TRANSFER BOOST

    Brighton ace Ben White was linked with Manchester United recently following a string of impressive Premier League performances that led to an England call-up.

    United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is determined to sign a top centre-back to partner up with Harry Maguire at the back.

    According to Manchester Evening News, however, the Red Devils were not willing to meet his £50million asking price for the England international and are thus concentrating their efforts on other defensive targets.

    That paves the way for Arsenal to sign their man as they are willing to splash the cash for the 23-year-old defender

    GOLDEN BOY

    Arsenal are targeting Lille star Renato Sanches and are weighing up a potential summer transfer.

    Sanches is reportedly interested in returning to the Premier League to prove his worth after a poor loan spell at Swansea back in 2017-18, which saw him make a mere 12 Premier League appearances.

    According to 90Min, the Gunners have asked the Ligue 1 champions to keep them informed on any potential developments regarding the midfielder's future.
