WELL UP FOR IT
Arsenal are interested in Todd Cantwell as he gets close to the end of his current deal at Norwich, report Fichajes.
The report says he doesn’t want to keep getting relegated with them and is now targeting a free transfer to a top club.
At 23, he fits into the profile of the players that Arsenal has signed recently and the Gunners could win the race for his signature.
The report says Mikel Arteta remains keen on reducing the average age of his squad and that explains why he has spent much of his transfer budget on the likes of Martin Odegaard and Albert Sambi Lokonga.
‘ONE OF THE BEST’
Lionel Messi has claimed former Arsenal goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez is one of the greatest in the world.
The 29-year-old, now at Aston Villa, spent eight years at Arsenal before filling in for the injured Bernd Leno during the 2019/20 season where he was instrumental in winning the FA Cup.
Messi said: “When they come to him, he always responds.
“The truth is that, once again, he established himself after the Copa America.
“We have one of the best goalkeepers in the world, without a doubt. We take advantage of it.”
Kevin Campbell believes Arsenal should not sign Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Liverpool in the January transfer window.
Campbell said on Highbury Squad: “I just think that we know that we are going to be a bit short in midfield. If we can get a permanent signing, that’s what we want, but if we can’t get a permanent signing in, then we get a loan signing.
“The Ox, for me, obviously he has been at Liverpool, he suffered injuries like he did at Arsenal a lot of the time, hardly plays.
“When he has played, he has looked pretty lively in Liverpool’s team, but how many games does he play a season?
“We have been down that road, it’s not the road we go down anymore. Definitely not.”
