8.10am Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Aouar ‘refusing to train’, Isco targeted, Saliba set for Saint-Etienne loan


Arsenal host Wolves on Sunday evening, looking to get back to winning ways in the Premier League.

They do so on the back of a decent 3-0 win in Norway against Molde, which proved to be special for one youngster in particular, as Folarin Balogun netted his first senior goal for the Gunners.

Nicolas Pepe and Reiss Nelson also got on the scoresheet, although the former will be suspended for the clash with Wolves, following his red card against Leeds United.

Nelson, however, is hoping to have forced his way into contention.

Asked if the Europa League is a competition that can make Arteta take notice, he replied: “Of course.

“Joe [Willock] is in excellent form and it just shows that if you do your business on the pitch the manager is not afraid to throw you in like he has with Joe and with everyone else.

“You see young Balogun got a goal as well and it is nice to see young prospects coming through and getting the goals.”

The January window may still be over a month away, but speculation is already gathering pace surrounding ins and outs at the Emirates.

According to Defensa Central, Isco could be tempted to join the North Londoners in January – although £27million 2019 signing William Saliba appears on the brink of returning to St-Etienne on loan.

The Frenchman featured in an experienced three-man defence alongside Calum Chambers and Pablo Mari, as Arsenal’s Under-23s defeated Derby County 3-1 last night.
