Donyell Malen, if you don’t know the name and you’re an Arsenal fan you should be ashamed of yourself. Alright, we’ll admit we’re joking, but you will probably learn the name in the coming days, as the highly-rated youngster has confirmed that he’s penned a deal with the Gunners.
The Dutch striker was wanted by both Arsenal and Manchester United but posted a picture to his Instagram account revealing that he’s opted for north London.
Unsurprisingly it was quickly deleted, probably on the orders of his new club, but that hasn’t stopped the internet from doing what it does best and sharing the story to all corners of the earth.
Naturally fans aren’t going to see him representing Arsenal’s senior team anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t one to keep an eye on for the future.
Since bigwig Dick Law and notorious agent Mino Raiola - who represents Malen - were present in said photo, it’s safe to say he’s got a stellar reputation for someone so young.
Fabregas' olive branch
Meanwhile Francesc Fabregas has looked to rid the bad blood between himself and Arsenal, by declaring that he still loves the club.
The former Gunners captain claimed no amount of abuse from fans would diminish his feelings for his former side, saying that the most important thing he had were memories. Even if they are fairly trophy-less.
Will Arsenal fans accept the olive branch and cease with haranguing Fabregas every time he crosses their path? Probably not, but it was worth a try, Cesc.
Another arrival from Chelsea?
Finishing up it’s over to Stamford Bridge, were another Chelsea man could follow Petr Cech to north London. Before you get too excited it’s not a player, but goalkeeping coach Christopher Lollichon, who shared a good relationship with Cech before his move to Arsenal this summer.
Reports say that Lollichon has been granted permission to switch allegiance to the Gunners. Whether or not he’ll take his club up on their offer remains to be seen.
