Here is a roundup of the top Arsenal news and gossip from icfootballnews that we think you guys may have missed –

Mikel Arteta has confirmed that Arsenal  are on the lookout for a new midfielder due to a fresh injury concern for Mohamed Elneny.

The Egyptian midfielder was not named in Arsenal’s matchday squad for the 3-2 win over Manchester United, with the Gunners linked with a number of players over the past few days.

And now Arteta has opened up and admitted that he is keen to see another midfielder makes the move to the Emirates – Speaking about Elneny’s injury, Arteta said: “There are concerns. Mo is a player who never complains about anything but let’s see.

“We need some more cover in midfield, ideally, if we can. But this market is complicated. But as I always say, the most important thing is we get the performances and the time on the pitch with the players we already have on the pitch are really good.”

At the start of the season is would have been very hard for Arsenal to atrract top players – simply because Liverpool and Man City have been signing the best. But that is no longer the case.

Arsenal are sitting top of the Premier League with one of the most exciting and entertaining sides in Europe  – and now most players would like to make a move to the Emirates.

The Gunners have been linked with so many players – so it is very hard to say who will arrive – but Edu knows what Arteta wants and will get that – and surely it will be a player that will make a very good impact on the Arsenal squad.

Kiwior just the type of player Arteta wanted –

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta praised January signing Jakub Kiwior as he is the type of left-sided centre-back he has long wanted.

The Gunners have been linked with so many players this transfer window and many fans have been hoping that a few players will be signed by Mikel Arteta.

Leandro Trossard is the latest player to join the Arsenal revolution – as the former Brighton star will add some much needed depth to that Gunners attack – and now fans have welcomed a new arrival.

Kiwior is a player that Arsenal have been tracking for a while now and after a few days of talks – the Gunners agreed to bring Kiwior to the Emirates in a deal that has cost the club £20 million

And after seeing the gifted young defender complete the move to the Emirates – Arteta has now opened up and admitted that he is just the type of left-side centre-back that he wanted at the club.

Arteta said: “It’s great that Jakub is joining us.

“He’s a young versatile defender who has shown huge potential and qualities with Spezia in Serie A, and also at international level with Poland.

“Jakub is a player who will give us strength and quality to our defensive unit”

We have not seen too much of the young man but we are certain that he will be impressive – the transfer business that Arsenal have done in recent windows just shows that they are looking at quality players.

the lad has a long way to go before he can be a regular starter at the club – but we are all excited to see just what he manages at Arsenal

Mckennie wanted?

Arsenal are considering a bid for Juventus star Weston McKennie as a possible alternative to West Ham star Declan Rice.

Over the past few seasons Declan Rice has developed into one of the best players at the club – and one of the most impressive midfielders that the Premier League has to offer.

He really is the leader at the Hammers and a man that they are hoping to keep at the club for as long as they are possibly too – but that has not stopped speculation regarding his long-term future at the club

Arsenal are continuing to be linked with a move for the England International – and it is believed that Rice has already made up his mind about leaving the Hammers after rejecting the clubs massive contract offer

However – if Arsenal are unable to complete the signing of Declan Rice in the coming transfer windows – rumours have claimed that McKennie is a man that is now on the radar of the Premier League giants – According to Calciomercato,

He lifted the Coppa Italia in 2021, and to date has won 41 caps and scored nine goals for his country.

While he has played well in Turin, he has not been able to establish himself as a guaranteed starter in Massimiliano Allegri’s side, and as such the 24-year-old has been, for some time now, been linked with a move to the Premier League.

This comes amid a turbulent time for Juve, who were hit with a 15-point deduction by an Italian court.

That is because of capital gain violations involving alleged inflated transfer values registered by the club in the past few years.

If the reports are true and McKennie is open to a switch to the Premier League – he is certainly a player that impressed at the World Cup.

Again he is a player that could add some real depth to Arsenal squad.
