Arsenal's concerns with Aubameyang's transfer to Al-Hilal might have been resolved
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s potential transfer move to Al-Hilal may have been resolved as the Saudi club prepare to submit an offer.Aubameyang has been frozen out of Mikel Arteta’s plans at the Gunners after a succession of disciplinary-related issues, with the striker also stripped of the captaincy.That means that he is free to leave the Emirates Stadium this month after four years at the Premier League giants, either on loan or on a permanent deal.Putting an obstacle up to any potential exit is his astonishingly high wages of £350,000 a week, having been handed a major pay rise as part of a new contract signed in 2020.Arsenal’s hopes of moving the Gabon international on before the end of the window have now reportedly been handed a major boost.According to the Daily Mail, Saudi Pro League side Al Hilal are prepared to pay Aubameyang’s wages in full as part of a loan deal.Leonardo Jardim’s side are fourth in the Saudi league and are understood to have offered to take Aubameyang on loan for the rest of the season, with an option to make the move permanent in the summer.And in a move described as being ‘hugely attractive’ to Arsenal, they are prepared to take on the striker’s huge wages in full.Should Arsenal allow Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to join Arsenal? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section...It is stated that the Gunners would be inclined to accept the offer, though the decision to move to the Middle East lies with Aubameyang.Arsenal are aware of the proposal from Al Hilal, with Aubameyang and his representatives set to study it in the coming days.It is unlikely to be his only offer, with interest in Aubameyang said to be ‘growing’ as time ticks down on the transfer window.Want to be on the ball with all

Piers Morgan leads Mikel Arteta criticism and says Arsenal process is 'untrustworthy'
Piers Morgan is never one to shy away from letting his feelings known online, especially when it comes to his beloved Arsenal.The former Good Morning Britain presenter has criticised Mikel Arteta after Arsenal were knocked out of the Carabao Cup by Liverpool, ending their hunt for silverware this season.It's been a disastrous start to 2022 for the Gunners as they have been knocked out of both domestic cup competitions, and Tottenham have now moved above them in the Premier League.And Morgan has labelled Arteta's process at Arsenal 'untrustworthy', as the Gunners continue to battle another poor run of form.Arsenal spent more than any other Premier League club this summer as they splashed out £150million on six new signings, but their start to the season was the worst in the club's 118-year history.Their form picked up, and before the turn of the year they appeared unstoppable, but they are yet to win in 2022 and the doubts are starting to creep in once more.One of the doubters is Morgan, who took to Twitter and said: "Not in Europe, out of both Cups, 6th in League (behind Spurs)… dare I suggest the Arteta process is not quite as trustworthy as some Arsenal fans think?"Arteta was appointed Arsenal boss in December 2019, and won the FA Cup during his first season with his former side, but since then they have been well below par, and they started the current campaign without European football for the first time in 26 years.Following the shock third round defeat to Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup, Arsenal are now out of both cup competitions, and their aim this season will now solely be to get back into the top four.Their recent purple patch of form is well and truly over, and the pressure is on for Arteta with no excuses

Three things Mikel Arteta got wrong but one he got right as Arsenal bow out to Liverpool
Arsenal are out of the Carabao Cup as goals from Diogo Jota in either half handed Liverpool a 2-0 victory on the night, setting up a clash with Chelsea in the final and the Gunners' expense.After a goalless draw at Anfield a week ago, Arsenal started the game with high spirits and dominated the opening stages, but Jota's goal against the run of play changed the complexion of the tie.The Gunners continued to battle after the break but failed to grab a goal back, and it was the visitors that added to their advantage as Jota got in behind the Arsenal defence before neatly finishing past Aaron Ramsdale.Defeat means that Arsenal's chances of silverware this season are over, and their attention is now solely on the Premier League as they look to climb back into the European places.It was a disappointing end to what was otherwise a decent cup run, and here Daily Star Sport assess what Mikel Arteta got right and wrong on the night...Gabriel Martinelli was clearly told to press Trent Alexander-Arnold down the left, and if was down that channel that Arsenal focused most of their attacks.Although Alexander-Arnold is one of the best in the world from his position, he does lack defensive qualities, and that was highlighted as Martinelli breezed past him on multiple occasions.Usually, Alexander-Arnold has Mohamed Salah as support, and the Egyptian does regularly help out, but in his absence it was 17-year-old Kaide Gordon that filled in, leaving Liverpool light.Arsenal may not have taken advantage of Liverpool's weaknesses, but it'll be something that Gunners legend Patrick Vieira will be very interested in, as his Crystal Palace side face the Reds on Sunday.Takehiro Tomiyasu has been sensational since making the switch to Arsenal on

10 biggest transfer fees received by Arsenal - and how the players fared afterwards
Arsenal are still waiting for their first winter arrival.Despite reports that a deal for Dusan Vlahovic are nearing a conclusion, the Gunners are still yet to acquire the 21-year-old and face competition from Serie A giants Juventus for his signature.Mikel Arteta is in desperate need of a forward with AWOL ex-captain Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang unlikely to feature for Arsenal again.Elsewhere, Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah will both see their current deals expire at the end of the season and there are no signs that either will be afforded a new contract.And while the Gunners boss is rightfully concerned with bringing in the desired quality up-front, he might want to keep one eye over his shoulder for any players seeking a way out of the club.In recent years, the last few days of the transfer window have seen Arsenal lose some of their biggest stars with Alexis Sanchez, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mezut Ozil all moving on with less than a week of the window to go.And with the success some of these stars have had since leaving north London, Arteta might want to lock the gates at London Colney until February 1st.Daily Star Sport brings you the 10 biggest transfer fees Arsenal have received and how the players fared at their new clubs...Who would you like to see Arsenal sign in January? Let us know in the comments section.After three seasons with the Gunners, Samir Nasri opted to join high-flying Manchester City in the summer of 2011, leaving Arsenal fans fuming with his "club of the future" comments.The Frenchman made an instant impression in the northwest, providing three assists on his debut as the Cityzens comfortably dispatched Tottenham 5-1.Now a two-time Premier League winner with Man City, perhaps Nasri was

Arsenal will not register Dusan Vlahovic after he joins due to 'transfer loophole'
Arsenal are closing in on signing Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic following reports that a £67 million bid has been accepted.The Gunners have been in need of a striker since Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was stripped of the captaincy and effectively booted out of the club by manager Mikel Arteta last month.Vlahovic meanwhile has been on fire in Serie A, netting 17 goals in 21 matches this season and attracting interest from every corner of Europe in the process.But Arsenal appear to have pipped their rivals to the post and could seal a deal for the Serbian in the coming days, providing personal terms can be agreed.Another major bonus for the north London side is that they won't even have to register Vlahovic if they sign him this month.Registering players can often be a tricky business, as Barcelona have discovered to their cost in recent months, but due to a 'transfer loophole', Arsenal needn't even bother.Even though Vlahovic turns 22 next week, he's still classed as an U21 player according to Premier League rules.This is because "an U21 player is defined as one who is under the age of 21 on 1st January in the year in which the season commences."All Premier League teams have to name 25-man squads at the start of each campaign, but clubs are allowed to include as many U21 players - who don't need to be registered - as they like.According to the rules, a maximum of 17 places in the squad can be filled by overseas players, with the remaining eight places reserved for players with 'homegrown' status.Will Dusan Vlahovic be the best striker in the Premier League if he joins Arsenal? Let us know what you think in the comments section...To be considered 'homegrown', players must have been registered with any club affiliated with
