Hello and welcome to football.london ‘s live Arsenal blog on Sunday.
We’re nearly a week away from the Gunners being back in action in the Premier League, having clinched a 1-0 win over Aston Villa last time out. It leaves Mikel Arteta and his men in fourth, three points ahead of North London rivals Tottenham with one game in hand.
It puts the side in the driving seat for a Champions League place next season, but for now, they have to wait until they can resume their push. In the meantime, a number of players are away on international duty.
Off the pitch, rumours continue to swell over the potential transfer activity ahead of the summer. Arteta and Edu are set for a big window that could see the Gunners continue their upwards momentum and we’ll bring you the latest on that as it breaks.
So, with all that being said, sit back and let football.london bring you all the latest news as it happens.
