Arsenal fans, a very warm welcome on this winter day.

We’ll assume you’re all gagging to be spoon-fed the latest Gunners news so there’ll be no dilly-dallying on this page, we can assure you of that.

Instead, all you need to do is read on below or watch the video above for the latest information. Leave thoughts and comments in the box provided.

Sanchez contract

The words 'superstar' and 'Alexis Sanchez' go together like Arsenal and FA Cup success of late, so it’s no surprise that the Chile international wants to be rewarded for his efforts in north London.

Claims this morning focus on the idea that Sanchez is vying for a new Emirates Stadium contract, one that would make him the highest-paid player at the club.

At the moment the former Barcelona man is on just £130,000-a-week - I know, ‘just’- and that puts him behind Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil.

Given the fact he’s arguably their standout performer he wants more and the club have apparently been receptive to his demands.

Koscielny view

Moving on, Laurent Koscielny is clearly buoyed by the Gunners' fine start to the season, having suggested that he and his teammates are capable of great things.

The French defender hailed Arsene Wenger’s rotation policy, though he did admit he didn’t know if it was the best Arsenal team he had played in.

Mourinho backup

Lastly, Wenger himself has been handed backup from an unlikely source concerning his reservations about Premier League referee Jon Moss.

Fierce rival Jose Mourinho apparently referenced with the Frenchman during his expletive-ridden rant at Moss at the weekend, informing the official that he was ‘****ing soft’.
