4.15pm Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Odegaard could be announced TODAY, Aubameyang OUT of Saints game, Bertrand latest


Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang may miss out again when Arsenal take on Southampton today.

The striker was absent for the FA Cup defeat to the Saints due to personal issues.

And he is set to be absent when the two sides play each other in the league.

Gabriel Martinelli could instead continue on the left, with Emile Smith Rowe and Bukayo Saka also supporting lone striker Alexandre Lacazette.

Meanwhile, former Arsenal star Alan Smith believes flop signing Willian has ‘lost his hunger’.

He told Stadium Astro: “What was his motivation for coming across London and joining Arsenal?

“At the moment, it’s easy to say it was for the money, pure and simple, and he has lost that hunger.

“That’s how it seems from the outside looking in.

“His performances have just not been good enough. It’s a big problem for the manager.”

Finally, ex-Aston Villa star Gabby Agbonlahor reckons club captain Jack Grealish would snub a move to Arsenal if the opportunity arose.

He told TalkSport: “There are so many clubs out there that would love to have him.

“Have Arsenal even got the money if they wanted to get him?

“I think the way Arsenal are at the moment, where they are in the league, their last 10 years, for me they aren’t one of the top six teams in the league.

“Even if they did have the money, I don’t think he’d choose to go to Arsenal anyway. That’s a shame with Arsenal’s big history in football.”
