ARSENAL are reportedly scouting Crsytal Palace defender Marc Guehi, who is valued at around £30million.

The Gunners are looking to shore up their defence in the summer with William Saliba's injury having played a huge part in their Premier League title collapse.

But the North London club are also interested in Guehi's Palace team-mate Wilfried Zaha, with the Ivorian's contract up at the end of the season.

Elsewhere, Charlie Patino is set to leave the club as he wants to play first-team football, while we have all the latest on Moises Caicedo and his potential move to the Emirates.

    Arsenal Women crash out Champions Legaue

    Arsenal Women's team lost their Champions League semi-final thriller 3-2 to Wolfsburg last night.

    The game was played in front of a sell out crowd at the Emirates.

    The tie was poised 1-1 after the first leg and Arsenal raced into an early lead yesterday.

    However, two Wolfsburg goals either side of the break put them in control before Jen Beattie sent it to extra time.

    And it was not meant to be as Pauline Bremer netted in the last minute before penalties as Arsenal suffered a heartbreaking loss.

    Arsenal vs Chelsea: Tonight

    Arsenal welcome Chelsea to the Emirates Stadium tonight as the Gunners look to move back to the summit of the Premier League.

    A win over their London rivals would mean they leapfrog Man City and move two clear of them.

    However, Pep Guardiola's side would then have two games in hand to grab their lead back.

    William Saliba is set to miss another game due to a back injury with Mikel Arteta conceding his condition has not improved.

    As for the Blues, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Kai Havertz are both fit.

    But, Marc Cucurella, Reece James, Kalidou Koulibaly and Mason Mount are out.

    Mikel Arteta vowed the title race “is not over” ahead of this evening's meeting with Chelsea.

    He even said he would pay money to be in the same position next season as his side are now.

    The Gunners boss said: “We still have the nicest part of the season to play with five games to go.

    “When I look at it, this is not over. We can still achieve the Premier League because there are five games to go and a lot of things are going to happen still.

    “I’d pay a lot of money next season to be in this position, believe me.”

    The Gunners host the struggling Blues at the Emirates tonight with the Blues on a five-game losing run.

    Elsewhere, Arsenal are reportedly keeping tabs on Crystal Palace centre-back Marc Guehi.

    The Daily Mail claim there are concerns over William Saliba’s long-term fitness.
    Palace would be likely to demand more than the £18million they paid to sign Guehi from Chelsea in 2021.

    And finally, Charlie Patino is set to leave Arsenal on a permanent deal in the summer.

    Patino spent the season on loan at Blackpool, and The Athletic claim that Arsenal don’t see him as ready to play for them just yet and would prefer to loan him out again next season.

    However, this does not suit Patino, with the club ready to help facilitate his wishes to get a transfer away.

    The Gunners boss said: "We still have the nicest part of the season to play with five games to go.

    "When I look at it, this is not over.

    Arteta gives Aubameyang plea

    Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has urged fans to "pay respect" to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang during Tuesday's game against Chelsea.

    Arteta froze Aubameyang out of his squad, with the striker having his contract terminated in January 2022.

    Speaking ahead of the game, Arteta said: "Let's say thank you, pay respect and gratitude for what he was.

    "He was an incredible player for us, scored a lot of goals, he was our captain, and he deserves that."

    Agbonlahor on Rice to Arsenal

    Gabriel Agbonlahor has urged West Ham to accept a £70million bid from Arsenal for Declan Rice this summer.

    That's despite reports claiming the Hammers will demand over £100m for his services.

    Agbonlahor told Football Insider: “I don’t think Arsenal will pay £100million. £70million is more realistic for someone with a year left on their contract.

    “West Ham are in a tough predicament. If they turn down that bid of £60-70million and Rice leaves on a free a year later – it’s really bad business.

    “They are a club who can use that revenue after spending so poorly this season.

    “£70million would be a fair price considering his situation at West Ham.”

    Arsenal scouting Marc Guehi

    The Gunners are reportedly keeping tabs on Crystal Palace centre-back Marc Guehi.

    That is according to the Daily Mail, who say there are concerns over William Saliba's long-term fitness.

    Saliba is currently sidelined with a back injury.

    It is unknown how much Palace would demand for Guehi, but it is expected to be more than the £18million paid to sign him from Chelsea in 2021.

    Title chance all but over

    Arsenal now have just a 5.5 per cent chance of winning the Premier League title.

    That is according to Opta's Supercomputer, and following last week's defeat at Manchester City.

    However, City still have to play the likes of Chelsea, Brighton and Brentford.

    So there could yet be a twist in this title race.

    Gunners tipped for win over Chelsea

    Opta’s Supercomputer reckons Arsenal will get back to winning ways against Chelsea on Tuesday.

    The Gunners have not played since losing 4-1 at title rivals Manchester City last week.

    But Mikel Arteta's side are heavy favourites to beat the lowly Blues at home, with a 43.7 per cent chance of claiming all three points.

    Chelsea meanwhile have just a 27.8 per cent chance of victory at the Emirates, according to Opta.

    Stopping the slump

    Frank Lampard is still yet to win, or even draw, a game since returning as Chelsea manager.

    The Stamford Bridge icon has overseen five straight defeats.

    Overall the Blues are on a run of eight games without a win.

    But what better place to stop the rot than at the home of bitter rivals Arsenal on Tuesday night?

    Lampard hints at Auba involvement

    Chelsea caretaker boss Frank Lampard suggested ex-Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could be involved against his former employers tomorrow.

    The forward has struggled since joining the Blues from Barcelona last summer.

    And while Lampard did not give away his team selection, he revealed Aubameyang is "fit and ready" to play at the Emirates.

    When asked about Aubameyang's involvement, Lampard said: We'll see, I've got Auba, I've got Kai [Havertz], I've got David [Datro] Fofana. I won't divulge the team right here. He's fit and ready."

    Morgan lauds Arteta 'winner's mentality'

    Arsenal fan Piers Morgan is pleased with the team's mentality – despite their collapse in the title race.

    Gunners boss Mikel Arteta said his squad are "unsatisfied" following the defeat at Manchester City, despite facing a return to Champions League action next season.

    The Spaniard said: "The thing I like the most is that we are in the Champions League and everyone is still unsatisfied with the situation.

    "This is what we need if we want to move forward as a club and as a team."

    And a delighted Morgan reposted the quote on Twitter and wrote: "LOVE this new quote from @m8arteta – THIS is the right winner's mentality."

    More Mikel praise

    Mikel Arteta has claimed Chelsea are capable of getting 100 points next season if they can get the best out of all of their players.

    Stamford Bridge owner Todd Boehly has spent a reported £600million on new signings in the last two transfer windows.

    Arteta said on the struggling Blues: "Next season they may get 100 points – we don’t know.

    "With all that exceptional talent, if they make that work they can do anything because they have the players, the infrastructure and the history to do it.

    "I cannot assess what is right and what is wrong because you cannot assess in two months when they’ve made those changes, it is not fair.

    "It is extremely difficult to find that thin balance with players because in recruiting you can have the best intentions but then the player has to come here, fit in and get that chemistry with the manager, teammates, staff and the country.

    "It is not easy at all, so credit to everybody that makes those decisions."

    Arteta on Chelsea danger

    Mikel Arteta has labelled Chelsea as a "really dangerous" side ahead of Tuesday's meeting at the Emirates.

    The Blues are on a five game winless run, but Arteta remains wary of the threat Frank Lampard's side pose.

    He said: "I don’t know what their approach will be. They are really dangerous because when you look at the individuals that they can put on that field, for sure they have huge threats so we need to be aware of that.

    "They are going to try to come to the Emirates to beat us. They have a great manager and exceptional players, so it is very difficult to predict what they will do because they can play in various ways with different players and different qualities as well.

    "We are going to prepare for the game to win it, that’s it.

    "It is going to be a very different game. It is a London derby and they have something to prove, and we have something to prove.

    "The atmosphere is going to be incredible to play in that stadium and we are going to have to be at our best again."

    Gunners poke fun at Richarlsion

    Arsenal fans have been left in hysterics over a stat regarding Spurs' Richarlison.

    He has bizarrely received more yellow cards for celebrating goals than goals he has actually scored this season.

    Richarlison was booked for taking his shirt off when scoring his first league goal for Tottenham yesterday.

    And it's not the first time he has picked up a booking for the same reason after ripping his top off when scoring against Fulham only for it to be dissallowed.

    Gunners have torn into him, saying: "He really is perfect for Spurs.”

    Musah's Arsenal return?

    Ex-Arsenal youngster Yunus Musah could return to the club this summer after leaving back in 2019.

    The 20-year-old American international has impressed in midfield during the World Cup and in LaLiga.

    Fabrizio Romano says clubs are keen: “I've mentioned Arsenal and Chelsea’s interest in Musah and it is the case that they are following Musah since January. Inter as well.

    "At the moment it’s just scouting and not advanced, but Musah has good chances to move this summer.”

    No interest in Vlahovic

    Arsenal are not closing in on a deal for Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic after reports suggested the contrary.

    The Serbian was on the radar of the Gunners but the player instead opted to stay in Italy and quit Fiorentina for the Old Lady.

    There has been rumours that claim Mikel Arteta is still a fan of his but Fabrizio Romano claims that any speculation over Vlahovic's agent making contact with Arsenal is not true.

    Art of the deal

    Mikel Arteta reportedly plans to lead Arsenal’s quest to sign Declan Rice himself and believes he can convince the West Ham star to sign for him.

    Arteta has made Rice, 24, his top pick to bolster his midfield due to his technical ability and strength.

    The Hammers ace will be out of contract next summer, although there is the option of another year, and has rejected attempts at an extension.

    Now the Daily Mirror are stating that “Arteta wants to hold talks with Rice as soon as the season ends”

    Patino to leave Arsenal permanently

    Arsenal fans have been left devastated after rumours emerged that youngster Charlie Patino is set to leave the club permanently.

    The 19-year-old midfielder has worked his way up through the youth ranks since signing eight years ago.

    But his time in North London will supposedly come to an end this summer as he wants to play first-team football.

    Patino has impressed out on loan at Championship side Blackpool this season.

    The Athletic claim that Arsenal don't see him as ready to play for them just yet and would prefer to loan him out again next season.

    However, this does not suit Patino, with the club ready to help facilitate his wishes to get a transfer away.

    And fans are left upset at the news, one said: "That is such a shame, I had great hopes for Charlie, but he cannot expect to go straight into our first-team, so it would be another loan I think."

    Women's semi-final a sell out

    Arsenal face Wolfsburg in the women's Champions League semi-final tonight in front of a sold out crowd at the Emirates Stadium.

    The first leg into in a 2-2 draw, meaning it is all to play for this evening.

    Mikel Arteta has praised the work the club has done to support women's football and the fans.

    He said: "It shows the unity. It shows as well the way everything is evolving together and also the importance of women's football in this country, especially with what the England national team are doing.

    "As a club, they [the women's team] are doing much better than the men's football team, to be fair, in many moments, with all the trophies they have won, that is a reality.

    "[I am] so incredibly proud of them to do that and as well they fully deserve the credit they are getting. To play tonight to 60,000 people is something amazing."

    Arteta demands response

    Mikel Arteta is desperate for his team to bounce back after the crushing 4-1 loss to Man City in the potential title-decider.

    Arteta said: "It took a while to get over what happened at the Etihad.

    "We don't want to accept that, but we have to recognise the fact that they took the game to a different level. We didn't reach that level, they were better than us and deserved to win the game.

    "I have not had to pick up the mood of the players, they keep the fire in the belly for tomorrow. It is very difficult to predict what they [Chelsea] are going to do but we have to prepare to win the game."

    Arteta maintains hope

    Mikel Arteta is refusing to give up on his dream of winning the Premier League this season, insisting the campaign has more twists and turns to come.

    Arteta said: "We have achieved what is difficult to achieve and we can still achieve the Premier League because there is five games to go and a lot of things are going to happen still.

    "What we have to do is forget about what happened last week, learn from it and move on into the next game at home in a London derby and put things right."

    Saliba to miss Chelsea clash

    William Saliba will miss another game through injury, as confirmed by boss Mikel Arteta.

    And it does not look good for the end of season run-in as the Spaniard admitted: "He's not going to be involved tomorrow and we will have to see afterwards to see where we are, but he hasn't improved this week at all."

    Arsenal have failed to keep a clean sheet in the six matches he has missed.

    Saliba is out with a back problem and he remains not well enough to feature despite rumours he could be rushed back to help the team despite risking further damage.
