Good morning Arsenal fans
Arsenal are reportedly leading the race to sign Benfica ace Darwin Nunez ahead of Premier League rivals West Ham and Newcastle.
The Prem trio are all keen to recruit Nunez this summer to bolster their respective attacks.
But according to the Record, the Gunners are in pole position to snap up the striker as they are the club among prospects most likely to offer him Champions League football.
Meanwhile, ex-Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has been omitted from the Fenerbahce first-team photo.
Turkey’s titans today declared Ozil’s ban on social media.
However, no explanation was given for the midfield outsider’s omission.
Elsewhere, David Seaman has praised Arsenal star Bukayo Saka for upping his game and always putting in 8/10 performances.
Seaman said: “What I love about Saka is that when he gets the ball, he wants to go forward, turn around and attack the defenders.
“He did that with England in the summer and he’s taken it on and gone to a different level. He’s almost always 8/10 in every game.”
Finally, Buyako Saka has shown he is disappointed at having to leave the England squad due to illness.
He wrote on Twitter: “I am disappointed to be withdrawing from camp in England but I have tested positive for Covid-19 and will be isolating until I am negative.
“I’ll be supporting the boys from home this weekend and can’t wait to get back to doing what I love.”
