Official: Arsenal will wear red shorts and red socks with the home kit against Manchester City in the Carabao Cup Final on Sunday. It will be the second time in 39 years that the Gunner’s have worn this kit combo, with the first against West Brom on New Year’s Eve.
Official: Emirates and Arsenal have announced a five-year extension to their long running partnership. This will see Emirates branding feature on all shirts until the end of the 2023/24 season. It is the largest sponsorship deal ever signed by the club and will see the shirt sponsorship with Emirates, which started in 2006, run to at least 18 years.
Paul Merson: “The thing that surprises me with Arsenal is that you look at their team and there aren’t many that would get in all the other teams. They wouldn’t get in anyone else’s team in the top five. Nobody would take any of them.”
How is this guy a professional pundit?
Arsenal target Malcom has confirmed he will leave Bordeaux in the summer. Despite being heavily linked with AFC in January Bordeaux refused to sell the Brazilian winger last month. Today he said “Yes there was a promise that I will be negotiating in June, I will choose the team, and Bordeaux will let me go.”
Arsenal rate Toby Alderweireld highly. Arsene Wenger has shown interest in the Belgian international before and could this summer. The player’s contract expires in a year, although Tottenham could extend it by another year which would then include a £25M release clause. Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid are also interested in the player. Champions League football is a must for the center back.
Who else wouldn’t mind a little Sol Campbell action this summer? 😏
