    Part of those incomings was the arrival of £45million Brazilian international forward Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City.
    He was also joined by attackers Fabio Vieira and Marquinhos, as well as defender Oleksandr Zinchenko and goalkeeper Matt Turner.
    Despite all of those attacking reinforcements, a new report from Italy claims Arteta is pushing the Arsenal board to fork out over £100m more in January.
    CMW is reporting that he has instructed them to make a move for Juventus star Vlahovic.

    The 22-year-old Serbian had been linked with the North London club for several months before he snubbed them in favour of joining the Turin side from Fiorentina back in January.
    He has since fired 11 goals in 21 Serie A outings – including four in eight appearances this term.
    It seems unlikely that Juventus would be looking to sell him within a year of securing his services, but this fresh report states that has not deterred Arteta.
    And he is not the only man that the Spaniard wants to bring to the Emirates from the Bianconeri.

    Their 19-year-old midfield star Miretti is also allegedly on his wishlist.
    The Italian U21 international has become a key member of Massimiliano Allegri’s squad this term.
    He has featured nine times and is another name that Juventus are unlikely to want to lose, especially midway through the campaign.
    But that has not stopped this fresh report from claiming that Arteta has asked Arsenal to launch a £100.52m double bid for the pair. More

    Murphy slams Arteta for giving 15-year-old Arsenal wonderkid Ethan Nwaneri debut and is ‘concerned’ about repercussions

    DANNY MURPHY has slammed Mikel Arteta for handing Ethan Nwaneri a debut at the age of 15.That’s because the pundit admits he is “concerned” there will be “repercussions” further down the line.

    Arsenal youngster Nwaneri became the youngest ever player to compete in the Premier League at the age of 15 on Sunday.
    The teenage ace came on for the Gunners in their 3-0 win against Brentford as he replaced Fabio Vieira late on.
    The Arsenal fans chanted: “How s*** must you be, he’s only 15.”
    And many will be hoping to see Nwaneri in action soon again.

    However, Murphy reckons Arsenal’s move could backfire.
    He has questioned why boss Arteta didn’t give a more developed youngster a debut instead.
    That’s due to the immense pressure that comes with being jolted into the public eye.
    Murphy also fears that getting senior minutes at such a young age could go to Nwaneri’s head.

    And for every Wayne Rooney or Michael Owen who bursts onto the scene, there are plenty of others who fall by the wayside.
    Murphy told TalkSport: “I’m not convinced it’s the best move for a young player, I’m really not.
    “I have seen superstars come on the scene at a young age and thrive and go on and carry on.
    “But there’s also been a lot who have fallen by the wayside.
    “I think it was a little bit… he’s obviously a super talent, obviously doing well in training, impressing everybody.
    “But surely they’ve got other 18, 19, 20 year olds who are probably further ahead in their development who could have gone on the bench.
    “I think it’s probably trying to keep a young superstar happy a little bit, which is what managers do, I get that.
    “But I would be more concerned with sometimes what that can do, because you can elevate a 15, 16, 17 year old sometimes to a position that becomes very difficult for them to cope with mentally, because they’re already becoming a superstar.

    “I imagine his Insta went up by about 300,000 in a day and things like this.
    “People might laugh at this and say stop being cynical and skeptical, but very few players at 17 – never mind 15 – burst onto the Premier League scene and do what Rooney and Michael Owen did.” More

    William Saliba calmly brought the ball out of defence under pressure and passed to the midfielder.
    The Portuguese ace then found Bukayo Saka to his right who returned the ball to the 22-year-old.
    Vieira then fired a thunderbolt of a shot that rattled David Raya’s left-hand post before hitting the back of the net on 49 minutes.
    That sealed a 3-0 victory for Arsenal, who got revenge for last season’s 2-0 humiliation at the Gtech Community Stadium.

    Arsenal wonderkid Brooke Norton-Cuffy is starring on loan in the Championship and won the Euros with England U19s

    ARSENAL wonderkid Brooke Norton-Cuffy has designs on becoming the best wing-back in Europe.The teenager, just 18, is currently on loan at Rotherham United – where he is getting rave reviews.

    Last season he starred at Lincoln City, where his combination of power and pace also earned the youngster high-praise.
    While back in July, Norton-Cuffy played an important role in England’s U19 Euros triumph against Israel in the final.
    “I want to reach my potential, or go above and beyond what my potential is,” he recently revealed.
    “In my career, I want to be a star player in a top league in Europe, I want to win as many trophies as I can.”
    Striking up a relationship
    Norton-Cuffy joined Arsenal at the tender age of 10. Before that, the Pimlico-born prospect trained with Chelsea.

    However, he wasn’t the swashbuckling defender he is today.
    Just like Ashley Cole did in his younger days, Norton-Cuffy fancied himself as a striker.
    As he developed at Hale End his position soon changed into an attacking full-back.
    Both-footed, he is able to play on each flank – although has been mainly utilised on the right.

    Back in August, he signed a long-term contract with the Gunners who believe he has a big future at the club.
    Earning his stripes
    Last season, Norton-Cuffy joined Lincoln City in the January transfer window in a loan deal.
    Immediately, he was thrust into action for the League One side – making 17 appearances for The Imps and scoring once. For the fans, he was a hit.
    His former Lincoln boss Michael Appleton, now in charge at Blackpool, also tipped Norton-Cuffy to have a huge future at Arsenal.
    He told Lincolnshire Live in March: “I don’t want Arsenal ringing me up saying ‘what have you said that for?’

    “But I’ve been saying it behind the scenes, I think he will play for Arsenal’s first team on a regular basis.
    “It might not be for a couple of years but it’s definitely going to happen.
    “He’ll hopefully continue his progression over the next few games.
    “There’s one or two things that I think I can help him with, but by the time he goes back to Arsenal, he’ll be much better.”
    More first team experience at Rotherham
    After sitting down with Academy Manager Per Mertesacker and Arsenal’s loan manager Ben Knapper, Norton-Cuffy was adamant he wanted another loan move and more experience.
    He told Goal: “I always knew that I was going to go back out on loan. I feel like U23s football is good, but I’ve already had a sniff of senior football and so I wasn’t going to shy away from that.
    “I want to keep progressing and men’s football is a lot more challenging for me than U23s. So as soon as my spell was done with Lincoln, I knew I was going to go back out on loan.”

    Four games into his Rotherham career, Norton-Cuffy has again been championed.
    In a recent match against Sunderland, 80 per cent of fans voted him man of the match in a poll held by supporters.
    He said: “I’m not sure if it’s the Championship, or the club that I’m at right now, but training is intense.
    “It’s a lot of running, a lot of demand on the body – especially as I’m playing wing-back, which is a very key position in this team.
    “I feel like it’s been a lot harder. You can’t switch off. In League 1, if you lose the ball or make a silly mistake, sometimes you don’t get punished. But if you do make silly mistakes in this league, you do. So it’s about learning quickly.
    “This was the next step for me. League 1 last season was a good step up from U23s football, but you always look to improve and I think I just needed to go up a level again. And now I feel myself improving with each game, so it’s good.”
    England hero
    Although the tournament began difficulty for Norton-Cuffy, he certainly came good for England when they needed him.
    Conceding a penalty against Italy was a harsh lesson learned.

    He didn’t start the final against Israel, but came on in the 71st minute with the scores level.
    Instantly, he put himself about – getting a yellow card and firing a shot wide.
    Then, he was involved in the build-up to the decisive goal – passing the ball on to Harvey Vale, who set-up Chelsea summer signing Carney Chukwuemeka to put the Three Lions ahead.
    Norton-Cuffy’s next challenge is to follow the likes of Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith Rowe and Eddie Nketiah into the Arsenal first team.
    Read More on The Sun
    “You see that it can be done,” he said. “Bukayo’s the starting right winger of the Arsenal first-team wearing the No.7. Emile now has the No.10 shirt. 
    “So they are inspirations because you can see it’s achievable. I used to see them at Hale End and now when you go up to London Colney they are the main people in the first-team. It is inspirational.” More

    ARSENAL have been given a huge boost ahead of Sunday’s clash at Brentford.That’s because Thomas Partey has returned to full training following a thigh injury.

    The midfielder, 29, had missed Arsenal’s last three games against Fulham, Aston Villa and Manchester United.
    But CBS Sports claim Partey could be back in Arsenal’s XI when they travel to Brentford this weekend.
    The Ghana international took on a starring role in the Gunners’ opening three games – wins over Crystal Palace, Leicester and Bournemouth.
    And his presence in Arsenal’s side will be a huge boost to Mikel Arteta following the 3-1 defeat to United earlier this month.

    An injury to fellow midfielder Mo Elneny saw Albert Sambi Lokonga play next to Granit Xhaka at Old Trafford.
    Arteta had been hoping to land another powerful midfielder on deadline day.
    But he was left empty-handed when Aston Villa rejected a £23million bid for Douglas Luiz.
    Arteta confirmed last week: “The club has done a phenomenal job and put everything on the table to try to bring the players and the profiles we wanted.

    “We did business pretty early but unfortunately in the last 72 hours, Thomas [Partey] got injured in the same place he got injured last time.
    “And then Mo [Mohamed Elneny] has a long-term injury and we had to react in the market. 
    “We tried but at the end of the day, we have to bring the player that we feel is right for the team and the club – we didn’t manage to do that.”
    Partey is now into his third season at the Emirates following a £45m move from Atletico Madrid.

    The centre-mid has since scored twice in 62 games.
    But previous injury woes means Partey has missed 36 matches for the Gunners. More

    The scene showed Arsenal ace Lokonga having a grumble about falling out of Mikel Arteta’s plans.
    Despite starting the season well, the Belgian soon found himself on the bench.
    And after refusing to respond to Nketiah’s questions about his wellbeing, Lokonga said: “I was playing!”
    This prompted a less-than-sympathetic response from Nketiah, who was also struggling for minutes at the time.

    He declared: “So what my friend? You think you’re the only man not f***ing playing my friend?
    “Stop feeling sorry for yourself.”

    “Do you want to play in the f***ing Champions League?”
    Arsenal ended up missing out on the top four and are playing Europa League football this term.
    Ironically, Tavares is playing in the Champions League after joining French giants Marseille on loan.

    Elsewhere, defender Gabriel Magalhaes has revealed how Arsenal players feel about the documentary.
    He said: “I’ve seen it. It’s good for showing the reality of what is actually going on in the dressing room in the day-to-day.
    “People can understand things a little more and see how different it is from what they might imagine.

    But Neill really made his mark as a tactician back at Arsenal.
    Returning, aged just 34, he led the club from 1976 to 1983, and veteran Gooners still remember the famous 3-2 win over Manchester United in the 1979 FA Cup final.
    Neill took Arsenal to another two FA Cup finals, plus a Uefa Cup Winners’ Cup final.
    And the Gunners led the tributes on social media as they hailed a club icon.

    A statement read: “It was with great sadness that the club learned of the death of former manager and captain, Terry Neill, aged 80.
    “Neill’s status as both club captain and manager made him a major influence on 20th-century Arsenal.
    “His fantastic contribution – and indeed his character – will always be appreciated by everyone associated with the club. 
    “Our thoughts are with Terry’s family and close friends at this difficult time.”
    Arsenal fans hailed Neill and his incredible contribution to football.
    One said: “Terry Neill’s 1979 FA Cup win was the formative Arsenal experience of my childhood.
    “I still remember it vividly and so fondly. Condolences to his family and friends, and may he rest in peace.”

    Another tweeted: “Imagine being Terry Neill, being Arsenal’s youngest ever captain and then going on to win the FA Cup as Arsenal manager, he lived what many us dream about. Sad day today.”
    A Hull fan added: “RIP ex tiger Terry Neill. Great player in his time and did his bit as manager.” More
