    GUNNER BE DIFFERENT

    Arsenal are set for a busy summer transfer window with Mikel Arteta and Edu aiming to build on this season’s disappointing eighth place finish.

    According to football.london, technical director Edu has five clear targets going into the transfer window.

    They claim that the Gunners are after Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana for a fee as little as £7million.

    Arsenal also want Lille right-back Zeki Celik as a replacement for Hector Bellerin, with the Spaniard likely to leave this summer.

    Ruben Neves has been linked with a £35m move to Arsenal, with Wolves dropping their asking price as they seek to refresh their squad following the arrival of new manager Bruno Lage.

    Yves Bissouma is another on their radar, with the midfielder reportedly ‘keen’ on making the switch.

    Arsenal missed out on target Emi Buendia, after the Norwich star opted to move to Aston Villa.

    But they could opt to make Martin Odegaard’s loan spell permanent instead.

    PRICE IS WHITE

    Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool have been warned Ben White will cost £50million, according to reports.

    The Brighton defender, 23, enjoyed a fine debut Premier League season this term.

    And he was rewarded for his form by replacing the injured Trent Alexander-Arnold in England's final 26-man squad for Euro 2020.

    Brighton are unsurprisingly desperate to keep hold of the Three Lions star beyond this summer.

    And to do so, the Seagulls have slapped a £50m price tag on the Dorset-born defender – as we revealed they would do back in October.

    RAM RETURNS

    Aaron Ramsey has been offered back to Arsenal by Juventus, according to reports.

    And Hector Bellerin could be involved in a swap deal heading the other way.

    The Welshman, 30, left the Emirates for Turin on a free transfer in 2019 when his contract expired.

    But two years on, Sport in Spain say he could be in line for a stunning comeback in exchange for his former team-mate.

    Ramsey – currently preparing for Euro 2020 – has made 65 Juventus appearances across his two seasons in Italy, but just 22 in Serie A this term scoring two goals.

    It is not quite the impact he was hoping to have and the report suggests he is considering his future.

    Despite running down his deal and leaving for nothing, Ramsey was a popular figure at Arsenal and would surely be welcomed back with open arms if a return was on the cards.

    BELLERIN TO ALLOW TRIPPIER MOVE

    Arsenal have told all parties interested in Hector Bellerin they must cough up at least £20million for the Spaniard.

    And with Atletico Madrid waiting to pounce, it could see Kieran Trippier move to Manchester United.

    Atletico were said to be considering a swap deal involving Trippier and Bellerin.

    But SunSport exclusively revealed this week Trippier has told his England team-mates he wants to move to Old Trafford.

    As a result, Atletico have been told to cough up the dough if they want to bring Bellerin back to his homeland to replace Trippier, according to CBS.

    STEPH’S STRESS

    Steph Catley has revealed that her debut Arsenal season has been the most difficult in her career so far due to a series of injuries.

    The 27-year-old told My Football: “It’s definitely been the hardest year of my football career.

    “The injuries just kept coming and I couldn’t find the answers. But I found strength in myself I didn’t know I had and also strength in my relationships with the people around me.

    “I learnt to lean on people and overall I feel like I’ve come out the other side of it all a much better athlete.

    “I’m better at preparing, I feel stronger physically and mentally and just have a real appreciation for being out on the field every day doing what I love.

    “I’m feeling really good. My body feels strong and I’ve been back on the field for the last few months now so I’ve got a good amount of load back there too.

    “But mentally I feel really fresh and just excited to be on the field every single day.”

    FRONT ROWE SEAT

    Arsenal star Emile Smith Rowe is reportedly set to finally sign a new long-term contract with the club.

    Fabrizio Romano claims the playmaker will pen new five-year terms as the Gunners flog Willian, Granit Xhaka and Matteo Guendouzi.

    Smith Rowe, 20, is ready to commit the next stage of his career to the Gunners after a stellar season.

    The versatile attacking midfielder played 33 times in all competitions last term, scoring four goals.

    And he has the chance to cement his spot as Arsenal’s chief playmaker following the end of Martin Odegaard’s loan from Real Madrid.

    Smith Rowe’s current contract expires in 2023 but Arsenal are keen to reward his efforts with a pay rise and extension.

    HEC OF A MOVE

    Villarreal have reportedly made an offer to sign Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin.

    According to Di Marzio, Unai Emery is looking to be reunited with the Spain international.

    It’s understood that Bellerin is keen to depart the Emirates after ten years left at the Emirates.

    And Villarreal would be able to offer the defender Champions League football having won the Europa League.

    HAK OF THE NET

    Arsenal are reportedly considering making an offer for AC Milan star Hakan Calhanoglu if they miss out on Martin Odegaard.

    The Gunners brought in Odegaard from Real Madrid in January, but his short-term loan has expired.

    Arsenal are now waiting to hear whether the 22-year-old Dane features in Carlo Ancelotti's first-team plans.

    But according to CBS Sports reporter James Benge, the Londoners have shortlisted an alternative in Calhanoglu, 27.

    He posted on Twitter: "Arsenal still retain strong interest in Martin Odegaard.

    "What sort of deal can be done there [if any] will depend on decision of new Real Madrid coaching staff and Florentino Perez.

    "Another target who Arsenal are understood to have broached internally is Hakan Calhanoglu, out of contract with AC Milan this summer.

    "He is an option, not clear how high on the list he might be but expectation is he's an alternative to Odegaard."

    IT'S A JU DAY

    Joe Montemurro has been named as the new Juventus Women boss after his Arsenal exit last month.

    The former Gunners boss was unveiled by the Serie A giants as the new man in charge today.

    The 51-year-old will take charge at the Italian champions on July 1.

    In a club statement, Juve said: "It’s official, Joe Montemurro has joined Juventus Women as their new head coach.

    "In what marks the beginning of what will certainly be an interesting and exciting journey together."

    Montemurro's appointment comes following the news of Rita Guarino's decision to leave the Italian champions after four years at the helm.

    RATE YOUR MAIT

    Ainsley Maitland-Niles has admitted it may be time to 'kiss goodbye' to Arsenal if he is not a part of their plans next season.

    The 23-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at West Brom after he was deemed surplus to requirements by Mikel Arteta.

    And despite the Baggies getting relegated, the England international impressed and has been linked with a move to Manchester United.

    But first a decision on his future with parent club Arsenal must be made – and Maitland-Niles has revealed not received ANY contact from Arteta or technical director Edu.

    He told the Telegraph: “If I was to get a phone call from someone at Arsenal and they said they'd like a meeting tomorrow, then it would be easier that way.

    “They can tell me whether they've got plans to play me in the future or if they want to sell me.

    “I've heard they want to make some space [in the squad] and some money so I'm not sure.”

    Arsenal are set for a busy summer transfer window, as Mikel Arteta and Edu aim to build on this season's disappointing eighth place finish.

    The Gunners fell short in many departments, but finished the campaign on a high with five consecutive Premier League wins.

    Arteta, 39, came under immense scrutiny at times – but managed to ride out that pressure.

    But the Spaniard knows that things will have to improve.

    According to football.london, technical director Edu has five clear targets going into the transfer window.

    Here's how Arsenal could look should they sign all their targets.

    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has taken his £205,000 Ferrari 488 Spider Mansory out for a spin in his hometown of Laval.

    The Arsenal captain, 31, returned to France following the end of the 2020-21 season, with his side finishing their poor Premier League campaign in eighth.

    Aubameyang has shown off his black, £205k Ferrari 488 Spider Mansory in a post on Instagram.

    He captioned the snap: "Nice time in my Hometown Laval.

    "Next stop to @willy.aubameyang."

    Last week, Aubameyang's brother Willy revealed on Instagram the Gunners skipper was going to lend him either the Ferrari or the Lamborghini Urus.
