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

Paul Merson has urged Arsenal to sign Conor Gallagher this summer if the Blues go ahead and allow him to depart the club when the transfer window opens up

The England international has just over 12 months remaining on his deal with Chelsea but the club are yet to open talks with the midfielder over an extension to his stay, football.london understands.

Gallagher would stay put at Chelsea and is keen to get talks opened over a new deal at the club, but there are some within the club who are said to believe selling the midfielder makes more business sense for the Blues.

From Chelsea’s point of view, they need to try and quash any speculation over his future before the window opens, but if they are open to letting him go then his good performances will only push up the value of the midfielder.

With Gallagher facing an uncertain future in west London, Merson has urged Arsenal to sign him. Speaking on Sky Sports’, he claimed the England international would get into ‘every team’ apart from Manchester City.

“If they sell Conor Gallagher, it’s five steps back,” said the former ARSENAL midfielder. “I am a big Conor Gallagher fan, he gives you absolutely everything. I think he gets into virtually every team, probably Man City he doesn’t get into, any other team, I think he gets into.

“I would even go as far as to say at Arsenal you would, go and get him at Arsenal where you have got Rice, Odegaard and Gallagher.

‘He gives you everything. He gives you energy, he gives you goals and he closes down. He is a fan’s dream. Everybody wants a trier.”

Gallagher has had a decent season for CHELSEA and scoring seven goals is not a bad return for the club – but if Chelsea want to push on and compete for the best – they need players that can score and create a whole load more.

We can see him making that move to ARSENAL – but he probably wont.

RAPHINHA EYES PREM MOVE – 

Arsenal have been placed on high alert as Raphinha is keen on a move back to the Premier League if he leaves Barcelona at the end of the season.

ARSENAL have had a busier few transfer windows than many people expected, with a number of stars departing the club over the last few windows, and a number of players making their ways to Stamford Bridge.

There was also speculation in the media that the likes of Raphinha and Frenkie De Jong were also players that Arsenal were interested in signing, but were unable to get any deals done as they wanted to stay at the Camp Nou.

Recent reports in Spain claimed that the Catalan giants will consider selling the player if the right offer arrives in the upcoming summer transfer window. After Ousmane Dembele left for Paris Saint-Germain last summer, Raphinha was promoted as the first-choice right winger by Xavi.

Now – according to Mundo Deportivo, Raphinha is prepared to leave Barcelona only in favour of a return to the Premier League. The development will come as a boost for Arsenal, Liverpool, and his other English suitors.

Raphinha has been a useful player for Barcelona since joining the club in a €65 million deal, including add-ons. There is no doubt that he would improve Arsenal and Liverpool as well. The 27-year-old has nine goals and 12 assists in all competitions this season.

ARSENAL have been signing some quality players over the last few windows and adding players to the side that have been making a real difference to the side. If there is a chance to sign Raphinha – it would be a great signing for the club that is or sure.

However – he has shown a desire to stay put this coming transfer window and we believe that will happen as Barca do not have the funds to sign an adequate replacement.

ARSENAL TOLD SIGN JADON SANCHO

Emmanuel Petit has told his old club Arsenal to take a chance on Jadon Sancho and sign him this summer.

Before Sancho made that move to Man United just a few seasons ago – he was rated as one of the best and most creative wingers in the Bundesliga and a man that could add about 20 assists a season.

The move to Man United was meant to be tat next step in his career – but issues off the pitch and the inability to get on with his boss – coupled with some dodgy performances has meant that he did not live upto expectations – and was shipped back to Borussia Dortmund on loan.

But Sancho has scored three goals and registered one assist in all competitions for Dortmund since returning to the club on loan in January and looks every bit like the player he was just a few seasons ago.

Now Petit believes ARSENAL could reap the rewards by signing the England international in a similar way to how they revived Kai Havertz’s career after a sticky spell at Chelsea.

Speaking to Grosvenor Sport, Petit said: “I was saying how impressed I was with Jadon Sancho in the Champions League on commentary – he looks like a new player, so fit, thin and explosive.

‘He’s like dynamite on the pitch, so explosive on the ball with [Karim] Adeyemi on the left flank – so hard to catch.

‘He’s back to his best and Man United look so far away from them, so if Arsenal want him, why not? You can put the best player in the world at Man United at the moment and they’d look average in two months.”

There is no doubt that there is a special player inside that body of Sancho – he just needs the right League, the right coach and the right place to get the very best out of him and maybe the Bundesliga is just that.

He would not be a regular starter at ARSENAL – meaning he wouldnt feel compelled to make the move to London. So even though he could be a solid signing – it is not the right move for Arsenal or the player.
