  • 'BALL HOG

    Arsenal are ‘confident’ they can keep Dani Ceballos at the Emirates past June 30, if the season goes that way.

    If the season continues into July, the Spanish midfielder’s load deal would be null and void.

    But, as with so many other loan agreements, Arsenal are confident they can get an extension.

  • HIT THE WAL

    Arsenal are in talks with Walce, the Sao Paulo centre-back according to reports.

    Football.London claim the Gunners and technical director Edu are looking to do a deal for the 21-year-old, who plays on the left side of a centre-back pairing.

    They won't be going off much evidence of game time though, given Walce has only played four times in Serie A last season.

  • JOINING THE FIGHT

    Hector Bellerin, Reece James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are just a few Premier League stars to help raise £100,000 to help battle coronavirus.

    Top-flight players have vowed to put their rivalries aside and band together to help each other through the global pandemic.

    A host of stars have already pitched in to raise funds for the National Emergencies Trust – including James' sister Lauren, Callum Wilson and Andros Townsend.

    A joint statement on behalf of the players read: “Football has such a big role to play in communities and our clubs are a huge part of people’s lives.

    “Without football, we want to put our rivalries aside and show togetherness at such a critical moment for the country.

    “These are uncertain times for communities, but as players we want to show some recognition for the incredible work that is being done for the most vulnerable.”

  • REAL CHANCE

    Arsenal’s hopes of signing James Rodriguez have been boosted by the news they could buy him on the cheap this summer, according to reports.

    The Colombian is braced to leave the Bernabeu having fallen out of favour under boss Zinedine Zidane.

    Rodriguez, 28, has made just four LaLiga starts following a return from his loan spell at Bayern Munich.

    The attacking midfielder has never been able to win over his manager and supporters at Los Blancos following his £63million move from Monaco in 2014.

    It appears Zidane is finally set to cut his losses when the transfer window reopens.

    But any hopes of selling him for a similar fee appear unlikely, according to Spanish publication Marca.
