Arsenal will resume their Premier League campaign this coming weekend when they welcome Newcastle United to the Emirates Stadium.
After having the weekend off due to the Premier League winter break, the Gunners will resume their league campaign against Steve Bruce’s Magpies on Sunday afternoon, with them looking to end a run of four successive draws.
Having been out of action since a-week-last-Sunday, the break will have offered Gunners boss Mikel Arteta plenty of time to take stock of what he has made to his first few weeks in the job, as well as, potentially, looking ahead to the summer transfer window, as he plans to try and bolster his squad.
With that in mind, here is a close look at the very latest Arsenal transfer news.
Lacazette has Gunners decision to make
Striker Alexandre Lacazette could leave Arsenal in the summer once the window opens, according to a report in the Express.
The striker has struggled for form since Arteta’s arrival in mid-December and currently finds himself on a run of nine games without a goal in league and cup.
Arteta has plans to revamp his squad in the summer and it is thought that Lacazette could be offloaded to free up some funds.
Roma to listen to Under offers
Roma will be prepared to listen to offers for Turkish winger Cengiz Under in the summer after deciding they are ready to sell the 22-year-old.
A report on Turkish Football confirms that Roma will let him go in the summer, with them prepared to listen to offers around €25million.
Arsenal are said to be keen on bringing Under to the Premier League, as are Manchester United and the Gunners’ North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.
Gunners scouts keep watchful eye on Milan derby
Arsenal had scouts in attendance for Sunday night’s Milan derby between Inter and AC at the San Siro, report Caught Offisde.
In a highly entertaining clash between the two rivals, Inter ran out 4-2 winners, recovering from 2-0 down, as Arsenal officials kept a watchful eye on Milan midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu.
Calhanoglu has been on Milan’s books since 2017 and would offer a new lease of life to Arteta’s attacking options.
