  • GUNNERS ROUND-UP

    After another busy week of preparation, it now looks likely that the Premier League will be returning on June 17.

    Arsenal will face Man City on that date, knowing that three points would take them above North London rivals Spurs into eighth place.

    In the transfer market, Ryan Fraser’s move to the Emirates has moved a step closer after he signed up with Mikel Arteta’s agent, according to the Mirror.

    The Bournemouth winger has left long-term representative Jon McLeish and will become a free agent on July 1.

    Arsenal are confident of landing the left winger, who had 15 assists and eight goals last season, on a Bosman.

    In the long-running Thomas Partey saga, the Gunners are reportedly still the side “most interested” in signing the Atletico Madrid star.

    Partey has been repeatedly linked with a move to North London but talks surrounding a deal appear to have been pushed back by the outbreak of Covid-19.

    Spanish media outlet AS suggest that before the coronavirus crisis, the Gunners and boss Mikel Arteta were ready to stump up the money for the 26-year-old's release clause.

    And finally, TalkSport host Georgie Bingham has labelled the decision to give Mesut Ozil £350,000-per-week as Arsenal's 'biggest mistake of the last 10 years'.

    She said: “Listen, nobody’s career can be all flowers and rainbows and I realise that and I think Ozil has had a really tough time.

    “I also think there are times when he gets hung out for no reason. But I also think it is Arsenal’s biggest mistake of the last 10 years.

    “I think Arsenal were really stupid handing it out and it’s something that we beat them with.”
