Arsenal is set to return to action in the Premier League as they face Brentford following the latest international matches. David Dein, former Arsenal chief, has accused Mikel Arteta of damaging the club’s image with his VAR rant. The Gunners were in third place before the international break, just one point behind the league leaders Manchester City. Shortly after their match with Brentford, they will be facing Lens in the Champions League.
The January transfer window is approaching, and Arteta is expected to strengthen the team, with a striker being a top priority. The latest news from the Emirates in the past 24 hours includes a worrying injury update on Jurrien Timber, who is unlikely to make a comeback in time for the 2023/24 season after undergoing surgery for an anterior cruciate ligament injury.
Brentford has made it clear that they are not looking to sell Ivan Toney in January, setting a high valuation for the striker, which may complicate Arsenal’s pursuit of him. The Gunners are also frustrated with the FA’s decision to not punish Brighton manager Roberto De Zerbi after his controversial comments about English referees.
