    Arsenal target Tammy happy in Rome

    Another striker on Mikel Arteta's summer shopping list is Tammy Abraham, but the Roma hitman has insisted that he's happy in Italy.

    Abraham has been a revelation since moving to the Italian capital from Chelsea in August, scoring 24 goals in 46 appearances in all competitions.

    And yesterday he struck a blow to those clubs hoping to tempt the 24-year-old back to England.

    Speaking ahead of Roma's Europa Conference League semi-final with Leicester, Abraham admitted that playing his football at the Stadio Olimpico was a 'dream come true'.

    "For me to be doing what I’m doing now for a great club like Roma, I can’t really describe the feeling,’ Abraham said.

    "Coming off the back of a difficult season at Chelsea where I wasn’t really playing games, coming here and shining, it’s like a dream come true for me.

    "I’m happy playing my football. Of course, you hear the little rumours here and there, different people interested, clearly for me I’m doing the right thing if people are watching."

    DCL wants summer Arsenal move

    Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin has reportedly snubbed Newcastle – and instead wants to join Arsenal.

    According to the Football Insider, the 25-year-old has told those close to him that he favours a move to the Gunners in the summer whether the Toffees manage to stay in the Premier League or not.

    Mikel Arteta has made a lone striker a priority for when the transfer window reopens, and Calvert-Lewin may just fit the bill.

    The England international has struggled with injuries this term, scoring just three goals that include two penalties.

    However, the Londoners are confident that they can get Calvert-Lewin firing again – especially if they can get him at a knockdown price if Everton fail to beat the drop.

    The forward still has two years to run on his current deal at Goodison Park, and it's unknown as to whether it includes any relegation clause.

    Gunners planning Pepe showdown talks

    Mikel Arteta will sit down with with £72million flop Nicolas Pepe at the end of the season to discuss his Arsenal future, according to the Evening Standard.

    The Ivorian has flattered to deceive since arriving from Lille three years ago, and now finds himself down the pecking order at the Emirates.

    The winger hasn't started a Premier League game since playing 90 minutes against Crystal Palace in October, and has often been overlooked for Gabriel Martinelli and Emile Smith Rowe.

    Pepe still has two more years to run on his Arsenal contract, but both player and club may consider a move away in their best interest.

    Good morning Arsenal fans

    Wolves are ‘resigned to losing’ star man Ruben Neves.

    The news comes as a boost to both Manchester United and Arsenal, who have expressed an interest in the midfielder.

    According to the Manchester Evening News, Wolves are sounding out potential replacements for the 25-year-old.

    Lille are prepared to sell Arsenal transfer target Jonathan David this summer.

    According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, David is one of “some players” last year’s Ligue 1 champions are willing to part with.

    He could be picked up for under £50million.

    Arsenal legend Ray Parlour has recommended his former club sign Brentford’s Ivan Toney to bolster their striker department.

    Toney has had a strong season with the Bees, netting 12 goals in the Premier League.

    He told talkSPORT: “The strikers they’ll be looking at, they’ll also be looking at the other clubs interested in those strikers.

    “You don’t want to be getting into bidding wars.

    “How many clubs will be after Toney, if he’s available?

    “That’s the sort of striker I would be trying to get at Arsenal.”

    And finally, Arsenal are reportedly set to explore the possibility of including Pablo Mari in a player-swap deal for Udinese right-back Nahuel Molina.

    The Gunners centre-back is currently on loan at the Serie A outfit after linking up with the Italian side during the winter transfer window.

    He has become a key player under caretaker boss Gabriele Cioffi, with the defender featuring in 11 top-flight matches.

    UCL spot could be decided by incredible PLAY-OFF

    The Premier League could have play-offs for the title AND the last Champions League spot next month.

    League rules allow for a play-off for key spots if teams are locked together on points, goal difference, goals scored and the head to head results.

    So far, that has never happened in the history of the competition.

    But with just five matches left, it is still possible that Liverpool and Manchester City could face off in the ultimate title showdown.

    And Spurs and Arsenal could also duke it out over 90 minutes for the right to play in Europe’s elite competition next term.

    Parlour says Arsenal should go for Toney

    Arsenal legend Ray Parlour has recommended his former club sign Brentford's Ivan Toney to bolster their striker department.

    Toney has had a strong season with the Bees, netting 12 goals in the Premier League.

    He has more goals than Alexandre Lacazette, Eddie Nketiah and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang combined this term.

    Aubameyang departed the club in January with four Prem goals to his name, leaving boss Mikel Arteta with just four-goal Lacazette and Chelsea brace hero Nketiah to work with.

    He told talkSPORT: “The strikers they’ll be looking at, they’ll also be looking at the other clubs interested in those strikers.

    “You don’t want to be getting into bidding wars.

    "How many clubs will be after Toney, if he’s available?

    "That’s the sort of striker I would be trying to get at Arsenal.”

    'Emery is a top manager' – Enrique

    Villarreal defender Jose Enrique has argued that Arsenal were "not patient enough" with Unai Emery.

    When speaking to LordPing, he said: "I love Unai Emery. He lives the game, he's a tactical manager who really studies the game and I know because I see the games and I know players that have played under him in the past and they play under him now.

    "They tell me how it is and I believe Arsenal were not patient enough with him.

    "Arteta didn’t start the year well, but he won the FA Cup in his first year and Arsenal put their trust in him, gave him the budget and the players that he wanted, and then he delivered.

    "People work really hard for the team and he's proof that he's a top manager. "

    'Looney Tunes defending'

    Man Utd stars Jadon Sancho and Alex Telles were brutally mocked for trying to mark Arsenal ace Eddie Nketiah.

    The United pair tried in vain to block Nketiah in Arsenal's 3-1 over Manchester United on Saturday.

    The hapless duo attempted to sandwich the Arsenal striker during the Premier League clash.

    Sancho inched in from the left, and Telles encroached on Nketiah from the right.

    But when the sharp Nketiah realised what was going on – he simply side-stepped the United stars' trap.

    Sancho and Telles were left looking bemused as the 22-year-old left them in his dust.

    Rio Ferdinand has said that Gabriel Jesus could have a significant impact if he joins Arsenal this summer.

    When speaking on his FIVE YouTube channel, he said: “You speak to players about him, they appreciate him because he puts a good workload in, he has got quality.

    "I think if he plays consistently in a team like Arsenal, I think he gets you goals.”

    Taking the Mik

    Footage shows Mikel Arteta sympathised with Cristiano Ronaldo as the striker complained to the fourth official during Manchester United's 3-1 loss to Arsenal last Saturday.

    Ronaldo, 37, was frustrated with the officials failing to award his side a penalty when Jadon Sancho went down in the box under a challenge from Cedric Soares.

    So when Arsenal were instead awarded a penalty moments later Ronaldo rushed over to the sideline to question the officials' decision-making.

    But the Portuguese realised he was fighting a losing battle with Arsenal's bench camera showing the striker graciously accepting Arteta's offer of a handshake.

    Wright move

    Ian Wright has urged Arsenal to keep Mohamed Elneny.

    When speaking on his Ringer FC podcast, he said: "We are talking about players who came on who do a job for their manager with unbelievable professionalism.

    "Elneny may be leaving at the end of the season, you look at that performance and the one against Chelsea, and you can only think to yourself that if Arsenal are trying to build a team to get to the top four, you need that back-up player.

    "He has to stay. For him to come in in those two games, which were arguably two of the biggest games in Arsenal’s calendar, those are massive games, and for him to come in – the last time he played was 2 December – and play at that level, you have to say hats off to him."

    Pep talk

    Arsenal are reportedly set to hold talks with Nicolas Pepe at the end of the season regarding his future.

    The 26-year-old has failed to live up to expectations since arriving from Lille for an eyewatering £72million fee in 2019.

    Now, according to the Evening Standard, the Gunners are now discussing his position ahead of the transfer window.

    They are keen to sign two new strikers, which could leave Pepe out of contention for a regular place in the first team.

    Mustafi horror

    Former Arsenal star Shkrodran Mustafi was robbed inside his own home on Sunday, according to reports in Spain.

    The Levante defender was sleeping in his home in Betera, 12 miles from Valencia, when the attack occurred but he was unharmed.

    The thieves reportedly stole money, jewellery, watches and bags but fled when they heard Mustafi's presence, report Superdeporte.

    Investigations into the burglary are now underway with police not ruling it out as an activity of an organised gang which has carried out similar raids of footballers' properties.

    The culprits reportedly spent up to half an hour inside the German's home after entering through a balcony window.

    Mustafi has filed a complaint to police claiming the sum of all the possessions stolen tallies to about €1million.

    Scott's scheme

    Manchester United star Scott McTominay mischievously tried to stop Arsenal ace Bukayo Saka scoring a penalty against the Red Devils.

    As Saka lined up to take the penalty, McTominay crept up next to the unassuming winger and KNOCKED the ball out of his hands.

    However, the 22-year-old kept his composure and placed the ball on the spot before thumping it into the bottom corner.

    The England ace was subsequently mobbed by his Gunners team-mates while McTominay looked on.
