According to reports from Portuguese outlet A Bola, Arsenal had sent scouts to Portugal to cast a close eye on Yacine Brahimi during Porto’s encounter against Feirense.

Following consecutive defeats against Everton and Manchester City, Arsenal’s Premier League title challenge has stuttered a bit in recent times and the Gunners have now fallen a sizeable nine points behind leaders Chelsea in the standings.

Although the gap can still be closed down in the coming weeks, Arsenal certainly do not have any more room for errors if they are to harbor hopes of ending their long title drought during the current campaign.

 

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed that fit again Danny Welbeck has impressed during training upon his return.

Danny Welbeck has proven to be a very good signing for Arsenal since he joined the Gunners from Manchester United during the summer of 2014 but his playing time on the pitch was limited last season due to a plethora of long term injury problems.

Welbeck only made his first appearance for Arsenal last term in February before once again being ruled out for the rest of the campaign with a serious knee problem in May.

Speaking to Dubai Eye Sport, United Arab Emirates international Omar Abdulrahman has gone on to reveal that he is keen on joining Premier League giants Arsenal in the foreseeable future.

Omar Abdulrahman is arguably one of the most recognizable faces of Asian football at the moment. The attacking midfielder has consistently been delivering quality performances for United Arab Emirates giants Al-Ain over the past few years and in addition to his brilliant displays, the 25-year-old’s extravagant afro haircut cannot be missed.

To add another feather to his cap, Abdulrahman was voted the 2016 Asian Player of the Year and now many feel that the UAE international is ready to make his mark in Europe.

 

According to reports from the Daily Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur have joined the race to secure the services of Arsenal target Ross Barkley.

Ross Barkley managed to impress many after he enjoyed a breakthrough campaign with Everton back in 2013/14 and many had touted at the time that the attacking midfielder would go on to become a star in the Premier League as well as for the England national team.

Fast forward three years on though, Barkley has not quite been able to match his hype and although the 23-year-old remains an extremely talented young player, he will have to add consistency into his game in order to fulfill the wonderful potential he possesses.

Marco Reus and Christian Pulisic being targeted by Arsenal

Arsenal are currently sweating over the possibility of losing both star men Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil next summer after failing to reach agreements over contract extensions for the star duo and although the Gunners are still doing their best to come to agreeable terms, they also seem to be preparing for the worst case scenario.

According to reports from the Sun, claims have been made that Arsenal will be making moves for Borussia Dortmund stars Marco Reus and Christian Pulisic next summer in the event that they lose the services of both Sanchez and Ozil.
