Arsenal fans demand Donny van de Beek transfer deal in January as increase in injuries confirmed

Here is all the news from Emirates Stadium over the past 24 hours.

Increased injuries

Arsenal have had a tough night against Brighton and Hove Albion this weekend.

Mikel Arteta’s side struggled to win in the proceedings, registering just 41% possession as the Seagulls had 21 shots on Aaron Ramsdale’s goal.

To make matters worse, Hale End graduate Bukayo Saka appeared to get injured at the end of the second half, causing Arsenal fans to be extremely concerned.

But in a boost for the Gunners – as well as England manager Gareth Southgate ahead of the World Cup qualifiers against Andorra and Hungary – the winger should be fine.

This was confirmed by Arteta while speaking to reporters after the game.

“He will be fine, yes,” said the Spaniard. “He was hit but he should be fine.”

Wilshere sets a goal

Jack Wilshere has claimed qualifying for the Europa League will be a successful season for Arsenal.

“After some results, Tottenham’s result has certainly helped the club, it has helped the fan base support what they are trying to do,” Wilshere said on Sky Sports coverage of the game against Brighton.

“I think you really saw a Mikel Arteta side at their best in this game on the front foot, it’s easy to get motivated in a North London Derby but handling the pressure like they did is hard.

“The fans will feel better after this performance and win but we still want results – we want to go into the first half. To do better than that.

“Can we get into the Europa League? That will be the goal this season and then continue from there.”

Van de Beek at Arsenal?

Arsenal have been linked with a move for Manchester United midfielder Donny Van de Beek during the summer transfer window.

However, with the Gunners signing Albert Sambi Lokonga and signing a permanent deal for Martin Odegaard, talks about signing the Dutchman fell silent and he ended up staying put.

But with the 24-year-old still struggling for playing time at Old Trafford, some Arsenal fans believe the club’s transfer mission when the January window opens should be to lure Van de Beek to the ‘Emirates Stadium.

@ FlyStr8Chris said: “Arsenal must leave Elneny and AMN and bring in Bissouma and Van De Beek.”

@Emile_SmithBro said: “I feel really bad for Donny van de beek. He was a ball player at Ajax playing with confidence and flair and now he’s just stuck on the bench at United.

“I think he would be the perfect 8 for Arsenal playing with Partey and Odegaard.”

@ Deniz_oz1886 said: “@ Donny_beek6 come to Arsenal.”
