Sign all the players!
With the winter transfer window now closed, rumors have started to disappear. Arsenal had a quiet window given that for the first time in a long time, the squad is deep.

Xhaka charges dropped
Our bad boy, Granit Xhaka, is now eligible to return to the squad since his 4 match ban has been served. The midfielder was unable to avoid punishment for violent conduct on the field but was able avoid criminal charges. The charges of racial abuse have been dropped and the player is back in training.

Mohamed Elneny is back! Elneny had a great run with Egypt at the 2017 African Cup of Nations where they finished in second place behind Cameroon. Great to have him back in the squad heading into a congested part of the schedule.
