Lucas Torreira

Arsenal fans had their heart in the mouth when they saw Lucas Torreira pulled out of action during Uruguay’s 4-1 win over Mexico last week due to injury.

To further deepen their fear, the former Sampdoria man was seen putting an ice break on his knee.

However, there is good news for the Gunners faithfuls as it was reported that the player is back to full fitness and he’s in contention for a place in the manager’s starting lineup against Newcastle on Saturday.

In one of Unai Emery’s tweet on Wednesday, Torreira was seen on training ground taking orders from the Spanish gaffer.

It remains unseen if the Uruguayan would be given the nod to start ahead of Granit Xhaka, who’s been far from convincing since the start of the campaign.

Many Arsenal fans can’t wait to see the player in the manager’s first XI, this is because he’s one of the best players in the team despite being used from the bench.

After four matches, Torreira is still searching for his full debut as Arsenal player, though, that might change this weekend as there are numerous calls from fans and pundits for his inclusion in the starting lineup.

Players are back to their respective clubs after a two-week international break and they are getting ready for the busy schedule ahead.

mesut ozil

Former Arsenal star and Skysports pundit Charlie Nicholas has admitted that Arsenal could partway with Mesut Ozil in January, should the player fail to improve his performance with the North London club.

The Sky Sports pundits claimed the German international hasn’t been in fine form for the team since the start of the campaign and he could be sold out to either Manchester United or any Chinese Super League club who are ready to spend big on the player’s signature.

While analyzing the player’s performance against Everton yesterday, Nicholas said he won’t be surprised if the Gunners couldn’t keep the player beyond this season due to his recent uninspiring displays for the team.

Though the player played a major role in the play up that led to Aubameyang’s goal, Nicholas said the 29-year-old was far from convincing at the right flank of attack.

According to him, Turkish giants Fenerbahce are interested in his service, they might make a huge money offer to the Gunners for his signature in January.

United are also said to be monitoring the German’s situation at the Emirates Stadium as Mourinho is hoping to reunite with him at Old Trafford in the second half of the season.

Ozil has played five Premier League matches this season, scoring a goal and assisting once. He was equally on target against Vorskla in the Champions League last week to help his team to a 4-2 victory against the Ukrainian side.

Rennes winger Ismaila Sarr is reportedly attracting interest from Arsenal as Unai Emery begins plans for the January transfer window.

The 20-year-old winger was wonderful for Senegal during the summer World Cup in Russia but he was unable to help the West African country progress to knockout stages of the competition.

According to the Mirror, Unai Emery is impressed with the youngster’s display at the Mundial and he’s ready to make an offer for his signature.

Sarr is turning heads in the French Ligue 1 with Rennes so far this season, having scored two goals in six matches.

He also scored an eye-catching thunderbolt last week in the Europa League fixture when he released a long-range effort that went straight into the top corner against Jablonec.

The British publication also claimed that the youngster is set to cost the North London outfits nothing less than £20m.

Rennes have placed a price tag on Sarr’s signature and the Ligue 1 side are looking at the prospect of earning £20m from his sale.

In other Arsenal news, Unai Emery is set to rotate his starting XI when his side tackles Brentford on Wednesday.

It’s believed that the former Sevilla boss will deploy Bernd Leno in goal as the former Bayer Leverkusen goalie would be making his second competitive appearances for the team.

Alex Iwobi, Rob Holding, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Danny Welbeck are all likely to start against the Championship side on Wednesday.

Lucas Torreira

Arsenal manager Unai Emery often start Granit Xhaka alongside Matteo Guendouzi in the opening matches of the season but both players didn’t gel together as one performs brilliantly than the others.

Matteo Guendouzi, was awesome against Chelsea and Manchester City while Switzerland star Granit Xhaka wasn’t near any perfect.

However, after the two opening fixtures, Unai Emery would introduce summer signing Lucas Torreira – to partner Xhaka – in the second half of every match and the combination looks awesome.

After the Uruguayan’s fine performances coming from the bench, Emery finally gave the 22-year-old midfielder the opportunity to start against Everton yesterday, paring Granit Xhaka at the middle of the pitch.

The combination was awesome throughout the game as they seem to understand each other. Despite being under intense pressure from Everton’s strikers in the opening 45 minutes, the pair stood their ground and helped the team get their first clean sheet of the season.

Meanwhile, former United player Phil Neville has praised the two players for the understanding between them.

The England’s female national team coach told Sky Sports that Torreira brings out the best out of much-criticised Granit Xhaka.

“The thing with Torreira is, he actually makes Xhaka play well,” Neville told Sky Sports

Just like Neville, former Arsenal player Martin Keown admits Torreira has been the source of inspiration to Xhaka and both players covered each other’s back during their victory over the Merseyside club.

Arsene Wenger

Former Arsenal star player Santi Cazorla, on Saturday, revealed that the Gunners lacked self-confidence during Arsene Wenger’s reign at the Emirates Stadium and that was the main reason for their inability to lay hold on many Premier League titles.

The Villarreal man, who spent six seasons with the North London club, admitted that the Frenchman didn’t trust in the team to compete with top Premier League clubs for the titles.

However, Petr Cech, who joined the Gunners in 2014, has made another shocking revelation on the main reason the team failed to win Premier League trophies during Wenger’s 22-year spell at the Emirates Stadium.

According to the former Cech goaltender, Wenger wanted his players to play his style of football rather than playing to win.

The Czech international revealed to newsmen, after keeping his first clean sheet of the season, that the Frenchman always tell his players to play his tiki-taka style of football even if they won’t pick maximum three points.

Cech put in a man-of-the-match performance against Everton yesterday as his wonderful saves were all that the Gunners needed to remain in the game before halftime.

Though the Gunners were awful in the start of the game, Cech was a busy keeper as the Merseyside club continue to test him.

Goals from Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were enough to give Emery his fourth consecutive victory of the season.
