Goonersden brings you news from top football news sites from the likes of ESPN, SkySport, Daily Mail, Daily Star and Metro… We also Analyse football, player, transfer and predict Arsenal starting line-up.

Arsenal are tipped to bid £30million to attempt to price centre-half David Luiz away from Stamford Bridge, with the Brazilian international defender having his problems with injury setbacks and manager Antonio Conte this term, according to The Mirror.

Whether Chelsea would be ready to offload to an English Premier League rival club remains to be viewed, but that looks like an ambitious decision from the Gunners and perhaps a not to necessary one with top players like France international Laurent Koscielny, German Shkodran Mustafi and English youngster Rob Holding already at the North London club.

It’s also been suggested that Germany star Mesut Ozil is looking towards staying at the club beyond this term, although only time will tell if the midfielder’s reported £300,000-weekly wage demands are agreed and met.

The FIFA World Cup star has been in superb shape this campaign, with four goals scored and five assists made in 17 matches, while his all round body language and crave can’t be quizzed despite the uncertainty around his Arsenal future.

In turn, keeping the creative midfielder at Arsenal would be a massive boost for Arsene Wenger’s team, and considering this report, there could be a reason for fans to be optimistic.
