Arsenal news and transfers live: Bale bid, Partey update, Martinelli blow, Lacazette future

The international break is very nearly over and club’s will be returning to Premier League action at the weekend.

A two week domestic break came at a bad time for Arsenal, with the Gunners starting to find some rhythm in the Premier League.

After losing their opening three matches, Mikel Arteta’s men beat Norwich, Burnley and Tottenham in consecutive games before drawing away to high-flying Brighton.

But considering the Gunners won their first three games after the last international break, Arsenal fans will be hoping that they start to be seen as something of a lucky charm from now on.

A reunion with Patrick Vieira is just around the corner as the Gunners prepare to host Crystal Palace on Monday night.

Whilst Arteta will be working hard to get his side ready for that game, there is still lots going on behind the scenes, including transfer gossip, injury news and more.

With that being said, we will be aiming to bring you the latest news, views and rumours throughout the day so make sure to stay tuned.

Arsenal starlet Gabriel Martinelli is a doubt for the Gunners trip to Crystal Palace, according to manager Mikel Arteta.

Speaking during his pre-match press conference, the Spaniard said: “Unfortunately, he got injured last week.

“It’s a minor injury. We don’t know if he’s going to be available for Monday.”

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has delivered an update on Alexandre Lacazette’s future.

The French centre-forward has less than ten months remaining on his current deal with the north London club and Arteta has suggested that the Gunners aren’t thinking about selling him.

Speaking during his pre-match press conference ahead of Monday’s Crystal Palace fixture, he said: “No. We are focusing on getting the best out of Laca.

“He’s showing every day his commitment is here. We want to give him the right minutes.”
