GOOD MORNING GUNNERS FANS
Bukayo Saka is struggling to be fit for Arsenal’s trip to Manchester United but has not suffered a serious long-term injury.
The England winger was forced off by a thigh problem shortly after scoring the opening goal during Saturday’s 2-0 home win against Newcastle.
But a scan on his tight quadriceps muscle has confirmed that he has sustained only minor damage.
There is even an outside chance that he could be available for the trip to Old Trafford, although it is unlikely that he will be included in the starting line-up.
Meanwhile, Brazilian side Flamengo are reportedly plotting a January transfer for Arsenal outcast Pablo Mari.
The Gunners defender has started just two Premier League games so far this campaign.
He is expected to ‘consider his options’ if his game time does not improve in the coming weeks, according to football.london.
Mari’s former club Flamengo are interested in a move for the centre-back, but would rather a loan deal to a permanent transfer.
Finally, Arsenal showed an interest in signing Sergino Dest over the summer – and Barcelona are now making him available for transfer.
That’s according to a report from Mundo Deportivo, who have been discussing players that can leave the Camp Nou.
Barca want to bring in Manchester City attacker Ferran Torres and may look to engineer a part-exchange deal.
And Dest is listed as one of the players Barcelona are making available.
