Ian Wright sends clear Arsenal message to Mikel Arteta amid Eduardo Camavinga transfer update

Here is your Arsenal morning digest on Tuesday, May 11.

The truth about Camavinga rumours revealed

Despite reports in France claiming Arsenal are set to prioritise the signing of Rennes ace Eduardo Camavinga this summer, football.london has been told the speculation is ‘absolute rubbish’.

Camavinga only turned 18 in November but has already made 80 appearances for the French side – with his performances reportedly attracting attention from around Europe.

However, the Gunners are not one of those clubs, according to a source close to the teenager.

The north London club are hoping to raise in excess of £60million from player sales this summer, though, as reported by football.london.

Arteta proved right about Martinelli

Arsenal supporters have been calling for Gabriel Martinelli to be played as an out-and-out striker for months now.

On Sunday, Martinelli was finally played in the centre of attack by Mikel Arteta, but the young Brazilian forward was hooked after just 60 minutes after a quiet display at the Emirates Stadium.

The 19-year-old forward struggled in holding the ball up and bringing his team-mates into play, which is something that may have frustrated Arteta.

football.london have taken a look at what the Spaniard usually demands from his forwards and that can be read here.

Wright calls for Arteta to play youngsters

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has called on Arteta to play the likes of Reiss Nelson, Miguel Azeez and Folarin Balogun between now and the end of the season.

With the Gunners now out of the Europa League, their final few Premier League games of the campaign are pretty meaningless, so the manager could turn to some of his more inexperienced players.

That’s what Wright wants him to do, when speaking to Premier League Productions.

“Someone like Reiss Nelson. I felt for Reiss. He got called back from being on loan in Germany. I know we had a big game in the Under-23s the other day. People like Miguel Azeez, people like Folarin Balogun, I would like to see them in the matchdays now,” the ex-Arsenal striker explained.

“I think the fans would like to see that so that it will give them a lift of what’s coming. If the youngsters are going in, these are the games you would like to think they should have at least been in the matchday squad. Maybe give them 10, 15 minutes to have a look at them.”

The Gunners face Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Brighton in their remaining three matches of the season.
