GOOD MORNING GUNNERS FANS
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is expecting a big reception for Joe Willock when the academy graduate comes back to North London with Newcastle at the weekend.
Willock was permanently sold to the Magpies in the summer after a successful loan spell in the second half of last season.
Arteta said: “Yeah, I think it will be really nice to have him, we all love and like Joe.
“Obviously, it was a difficult decision to make to let him go, but I think he’s shown that’s what he needs as well to play the minutes that he’s finding there and find a new challenge.
“Yes (I’ve spoken to him), not this week, but I have done it before and he knows the reception he’s going to get.”
Pablo Mari could reportedly be in line for a move back to Copa Libertadores finalists Flamengo.
The 28-year-old Arsenal centre-back joined from the Brazilian outfit in January 2020.
But after playing just twice in the Premier League so far this campaign Mari has become tired of stewing on the bench, according to Mauro Sant’Anna, a Flamengo dedicated YouTuber.
Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana is sick of the media linking him with a move to Arsenal.
He fumed, via HITC: “I’ve wanted to talk about this for some time. (Recently) there was an article about me every day. It was Arsenal, then it was Lyon.
“I’m there tired of it. The media thinks it should inform me about my own life. I still have a contract with Ajax.”
