Arsenal news LIVE: Xhaka to Roma LATEST, Djed Spence updates, Elneny offers from Newcastle and Leeds REJECTED


Good morning Arsenal fans

RB Leipzig ace Christopher Nkunku has been included in Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta’s transfer list.

But Leipzig have been quick to tell interested parties that Nkunku is going nowhere.

The Bundesliga team’s managing director Oliver Mintzlaff warned off potential suitors by highlighting the forward’s importance to the team, adding that he will be playing with the Red Bulls next season.

The 24-year-old has been in fine form this season, scoring 10 goals in 21 league appearances.

The Frenchman also caught the eye in the Champions League group stage with seven goals, including a hat-trick in the 6-3 defeat at Manchester City.

Meanwhile, Newcastle signing Bruno Guimaraes insists he had ‘no doubts’ over joining the Magpies instead of Arsenal and Juventus as his new club will rival Europe’s giants soon.

Bruno said: “We are definitely going to be a club that is going to be a big power in world football.

“This is a historic club with a great tradition and a beautiful history. I have no doubts about my decision to come to Newcastle.

“Newcastle have presented something really interesting. I was so happy with the trust and faith the directors and president placed in me.

“I am someone who is driven by challenges.”

And Arsenal are one of 11 team keeping tabs on Middlesbrough loanee Djed Spence, who is currently playing at Nottingham Forest.

That is according to Football London, who report the Gunners will be facing competition from a whopping 10 other teams in their bid to land Spence.

The 21-year-old has impressed in the Championship as well as the FA Cup where he stood out against the north Londoners, who were eliminated by Forest in the third round.

Manager Mikel Arteta is trying to find some back-up for Takehiro Tomiyasu at right-back.

Finally, Arsenal could be facing a battle to retain Granit Xhaka with Roma preparing another offer.

According to Football London, the Giallorossi are thought to be preparing a summer bid for Xhaka.

Jose Mourinho’s team came close to bringing the midfielder to the Olimpico last summer.

But the Switzerland international made a dramatic U-turn as he signed a new contract to stay at the Emirates until 2025.

Reports suggest representatives of the 28-year-old have not made any new contact with Roma officials.

However, the Swiss ace may be open to a potential move at the end of the season
