Arsenal fans, hello and good day.
Allow us to present you with a midweek round-up packed full of tantalising rumours and the very latest in the way of breaking news.
Read on below if you’re interested in getting the low-down or alternatively watch the video above to be quite literally spoon-fed it by yours truly. Enjoy.
Guardiola signing almost happened
He’s seen by many as the ideal successor to Arsene Wenger, but few Arsenal fans are aware that the club almost signed Pep Guardiola back when he was a player.
Wenger has confirmed that the Spaniard wanted to move to the Gunners when he was in his early thirties, but Arsenal had the likes of Patrick Vieira and Emmanuel Petit so the deal never materialised.
Guardiola’s since gone on to become one of the most revered managers in world football. It could be that his adventure in north London has yet to come.
Jorginho's agent claim
Back to the present, and ironically another midfielder is trying to broker a move to Arsenal. Napoli midfielder Jorginho is open to said transfer, according to his agent, with Wenger potentially having had him scouted in the recent past.
The priority for the player is to break onto the international scene with either Brazil or Italy, but he might consider a transfer come January.
Reus admission on Rosicky
And to finish, Marco Reus has admitted something that might play into Arsenal’s hands in the future (albeit if you’re an extreme optimist).
The Germany playmaker, long linked, of course, with a move to the Gunners, said that Tomas Rosicky - an Arsenal player, for those who have forgotten - is his favourite player of all time. There has to be a good spin in there somewhere.
