Arsenal fans, you’re almost there!

Of course, I’m referring to the end of the working week which, at this stage, is around 30 hours away (UK schedule). You can manage it, I’m sure, but if you can’t then allow us to give you some motivation.

Below we’ve compiled all the latest, breaking, news. Take it all in and leave thoughts and opinions in the comments box provided.

Nolito comments

If you’re an Arsenal fan who likes to keep track of the ongoings of the transfer market then you’ll be aware of the links your club had to Celta Vigo striker Nolito during the summer window.

The forward, also pursued by Barcelona, was mentioned in connection with satisfying the apparent need Arsene Wenger has for another frontman, though no deal came to fruition.

He’s recently spoken about the rumours, suggesting that he was trying to keep them out as it wasn’t good to be distracted by such things.

"As I said, I try to keep it out, it's not good to be distracted with these things," he told Mundo Deportivo, as relayed by talkSPORT.

He continues to be linked with the Gunners as the January transfer window approaches.

Benzema regret?

Meanwhile, speculation infers that Karim Benzema may be regretting having not moved to Arsenal in the summer.

It’s believed he’s less than happy with life under Rafa Benitez at Real Madrid, and Wenger is on ‘red alert’ again as a result. Unlikely, but it’s too early to tell if this one’s got any legs.

Walcott on Ali

Lastly, Theo Walcott has admitted he was surprised by the size and ability of Tottenham Hotspur rival Delle Ali when the two trained together for England.

Ali made the squad for the Three Lions’ upcoming fixtures, and Walcott has said he will take the youngster under his wing if need be as he knows how it feels to be a starlet within the international fold.
