Welcome to our football.london The Arsenal Way daily news round-up. Maybe not the first, we’ve definitely done transfer round-ups before, and European round-ups, so I guess in some ways it’s not that new at all. Anyway, we thought we would enter the world of football in a broad and roundabout manner for you and have some fun with some of the stories and captions doing the daily rounds.

Gunners warned that Newcastle could poach Aubameyang

Darren Bent has warned Mikel Arteta that Newcastle could sign Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the upcoming transfer window following the Magpies’ recent takeover.

An investment group led by the Public Investment Fund (PIF) – also comprising of PCP Capital Partners and RB Sports & Media – bought Newcastle from Mike Ashley.

Now the Gunners not only face a long-term threat to the European places but also short-term ahead of January.

Speaking on talkSPORT, the Arsenal-supporting and former Tottenham striker said: “Someone like Aubameyang, though, it wouldn’t surprise me if he went.”

Partey finds the net for Ghana

It turns out that Thomas Partey had left his shooting boots in Ghana after the 28-year-old fired his country to victory, beating Zimbabwe 3-1 in the World Cup qualifiers.

Arsenal’s £45 million midfielder has been criticised by Arsenal fans of late for his outlandish shooting that hasn’t quite reaped the fruits from his labours yet.

Partey has let ten shots fly for the Gunners this season across five games but only hit the target twice, neither of which nestled past the opposition goalkeeper.

The midfielder’s inability to find the net for Arsenal is no new feat after Partey unleashed 26 shots in the Premier League last season without scoring.

Guendouzi’s ego raises doubt

Arteta will be relieved to hear that Arsenal may have dodged a bullet with the departure of Matteo Guendouzi despite the Frenchman’s excellent form.

The Gunners had seemingly been left to rue the 22-year-old’s absence from London Colney in light of the midfielder’s recent successes, but Daniel Riolo has slammed Guendouzi for always trying to be ‘the show’.

Arsenal, who signed the France youth international from FC Lorient for around £7 million in 2018, sent Guendouzi on a season-long loan to Marseille this summer with an obligation to buy included in the deal, according to The Athletic.

With the midfielder not returning to the Emirates at the end of the season, in accordance with the reported terms in his deal, Arteta may have narrowly escaped a growing attitude problem.

Matteo Gendouzi is beginning to show old habits at Marseille.

“Guendouzi, we criticised a lot,” the French journalist told RMC (via Le10Sport). “I saw him in the four corners of the pitch, that’s being generous.

“I’ve seen the old one for two games: the one who gives orders to everyone, who shoots when you shouldn’t shoot, who wants too much to be the boss, the show.

“It’s a bit as if we could never change in the end, nature always catches up with you.”

New England record for Saka

After finding the net in England’s latest World Cup qualifier against Andorra, Bukayo Saka became the youngest player (20y 34d) to score in consecutive appearances for the Three Lions since Wayne Rooney did so in 2004 (18y 241d), recorded by Opta.

While chasing Rooney’s records, Arsenal’s number seven also became the youngest ever Gunner to score in consecutive games for England.

Saka doubled his country’s lead after Ben Chilwell put England ahead inside 20 minutes before Gareth Southgate’s side waltzed away 5-0 victors.
