    GRANIT XHAKA has suffered a blast from Arsenal's past.

    Frimpong commented: “Is not Mustafi is Xhaka. I’ll rather have a one leg Ramsey than Xhaka.

    “Can’t fault effort from the players but how many FU***** TIMES THIS BLOODY XHAKA GIVE AWAY FREE GOALS HE DOES THAT CUS HE CANT MOVE AROUND THE PITCH LACK OF PACE WIN EUROPA NOW.”

    ARSENAL are set to face competition from Liverpool and Chelsea in their battle to sign Ajax's David Neres.

    ARSENAL could miss out on Lille winger Nicolas Pepe due to him being too expensive.

    The 23-year-old Ivorian has been one of Unai Emery’s top transfer targets for months.

    But Premier League rivals Manchester United and Chelsea are also keen along with European big guns Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich.

    Arsenal attempted to beat the others in the race for Pepe by making an enquiry for the explosive attacker.

    And France Football have tonight reported the Gunners are still in contact with the Ligue 1 side over a potential summer swoop.

    However, their report added that his £69m price tag would prove to be too much for Arsenal, pricing them out of a deal.

    Pepe has been one of the standout stars in the French top-flight this campaign.

    He has bagged 20 goals and grabbed 11 assists in his 35 games and played a key role in Lille’s charge to second-place in the table.
