Good morning Arsenal fans
Premier League fixtures scheduled to take place in London next week could be moved because of policing issues after The Queen’s passing.
Elizabeth II died aged 96 on Thursday, which marked the end of her marvellous 70-year reign.
No sport events are expected to take place during Her Majesty’s funeral, which is scheduled for Monday, 19 September.
But millions of people are likely to descend to London on the Sunday, which will provide a major drain on the Met’s resources, to pay tribute to Her Majesty.
That may mean that there will not be enough police officers available for Brentford vs Arsenal.
Meanwhile, Aston Villa star Douglas Luiz is keen on a move to Arsenal in the January transfer window.
That is according to Football Insider, who claim Luiz has told friends he is open to joining the Gunners.
Villa have held talks with the midfielder over a new deal but have yet to reach a breakthrough.
The Brazil international’s deal expires at the end of the season and he can discuss a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs from the New Year.
That means the North Londoners would still have to pay a fee with Villa valuing the 24-year-old at £30million, but the asking price could be lowered out of fear of losing him for free.
And Shakhtar Donetsk star and Arsenal target Mykhaylo Mudryk has admitted he “couldn’t say no” to the Gunners if they tried to sign him.
Speaking to CBS Sports, Mudryk said: “My dream is to play in Premier League, of course.
“Arsenal is a very good team, very good manager – so from my side, I can’t say no to Arsenal!”
He added: “But a transfer is not just up to my decision.”
Finally, Arsenal ace Emile Smith Rowe has delivered a welcome boost to the Gunners by reporting back for training
Smith Rowe was reported to be “distressed” after warming down following the loss to Manchester United and had to return to the changing rooms nursing an injury.
However, team-mate Cedric Soares shared an image with the attacking midfielder on a pair of exercise bikes.
The England international then uploaded the image to his Instagram stories – captioning the photo: “Let’s go” with a muscle and praying hands emoji.
