Arsenal attacker Bukayo Saka was one of the stars as England thumped lowly Andorra 4-0 to maintain their perfect start to the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in the European section. The Arsenal star was on target during the game that took the Three Lions to an unblemished record of five wins from five matches in Group I of the World Cup qualifiers in the UEFA section.
Saka was able to continue from where he left off at the Euro 2020 tournament this summer during the home clash with Andorra at the Wembley Stadium on Sunday evening. The Arsenal player made a very good impression as a teenager on the big stage this summer as The Three Lions reached the Euro 2020 final before they were stopped on penalties by Italy. Saka was one of three England players who missed during the shootout after the two countries were inseparable at the end of 120 minutes. Each nation scored one goal during that final held at the aforementioned Wembley Stadium. Continue reading SAKA SHINES IN ENGLAND WIN→
Arsenal want to continue their summer transfer business in fine fashion after improving their bid for Leicester City midfielder James Maddison. The Gunners have already signed three new players and have added them to their squad ahead of the new English Premier League season but they seem not to be satisfied and have also continued to push for a move to bring in at least one more new face. They are currently targeting Maddison and want to sign the England international midfielder this summer as reports suggest that the player is currently unsettled at the King Power stadium and would be willing to swap the Foxes for the Gunners.
Maddison is one of Leicester City’s best players and the club will not allow him to leave on the cheap. They have reportedly slapped a £60 million transfer fee on the English star and it does not look like they will be lowering that valuation as things stand. Arsenal are desperately in need of a new attacking midfielder and their manager Mikel Arteta believes that Maddison fits the bill and the profile of the type of player they are looking for this summer.

The latest media reports claimed that Aston Villa are set to make an increased bid for their transfer target. English publication Football Insider revealed that Villa are ready to offer £30m for Smith-Rowe.

The Gunners are looking to start a huge rebuild this summer after a devastating campaign this season and they have already reportedly started scouting for players that they want to sign in the summer.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is a huge fan of the 18-year-old midfield superstar and from all indications from the French media recently, they will try to lure him to the Emirates Stadium next month. Arsenal already have a lot of troubles on and off the pitch so far and they will be hoping that these problems are fixed on time before commencing their rebuild in the summer to avoid distraction or missing out on top targets.
