Arsenal news LIVE: Real Madrid ‘eye’ Mikel Arteta, Kiwior in line for debut TONIGHT, Asensio TWIST – updates in English
Arsenal are in the midst of a busy period of fixtures, with the Gunners set to face off against Real Madrid in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday night.
The Gunners have been in good form of late, with Mikel Arteta’s side having won their last four matches in all competitions.
However, the Spanish manager could be set for a return to his homeland, with reports in Spain suggesting that Real Madrid are interested in appointing him as their new manager.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are set to hand a debut to new signing Martin Kiwior tonight, with the Polish midfielder set to start against Real Madrid.
Kiwior joined the Gunners from Legia Warsaw last month and is expected to be given his first taste of action in the Europa League.
Elsewhere, there is a twist in the tale of Arsenal’s pursuit of Real Madrid winger Marco Asensio.
The Spanish international has been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium in recent weeks, but reports in Spain suggest that the Gunners have been put off by the player’s wage demands.
Asensio is reportedly demanding a salary of €10 million per year, which is well above what Arsenal are willing to pay.
