  • MORNING GUNNERS

    Yesterday we finally got confirmation that Euro 2020 has been postponed amid the coronavirus outbreak.

    And Copa America soon followed in putting back this summer’s tournament for 12 months.

    Euro 2020 was due to start on June 12 in Rome and finish at Wembley exactly a month later.

    But what does that mean for Arsenal?

    Well European football have stated they want all leagues to be finished by June 30.

    As it stands, if the current situation regarding the deadly bug improves, then clubs will return to action on April 3.

    Despite the break from football at the moment, there is still plenty of news coming out of The Emirates.

    And transfer speculation is also well underway ahead of the summer window.

    Arsenal face a battle to sign Leon Bailey with Chelsea ready to splash £85m on the Bayer Leverkusen star.

    The Jamaican winger has been one of Bundesliga's brightest talents in recent seasons, with Man Utd also previously showing an interest.

    Liverpool are also running the rule over the speedster, while Bayern Munich would like to cherry-pick another Bundesliga talent – but Bailey's current side would prefer to sell to a non-German club.

    Arsenal’s head of medical services Gary O’Driscoll has reportedly called off his switch to Liverpool after an intervention from manager Mikel Arteta.

    O’Driscoll was due to take over from Andrew Massey after the Anfield medic joined Fifa as the governing bodies medical director starting on March 1.

    Arsenal had already advertised the vacant job and began conducting interviews for a successor after O’Driscoll handed in resignation in January.

    But according to The Athletic, after talks with Gunners boss Arteta and technical director Edu, the English medic was convinced to remain at the Emirates.

    Stay tuned right here for all the very latest news from Arsenal throughout the day.

  • SMALL TALK

    Arsenal and Tottenham are set to battle Everton in the transfer chase for Chris Smalling.

    The Manchester United defender was sent to Italy on loan to Roma last summer and has thrived since the move.

    The Serie A club want to make that deal permanent at the end of the season, with the Red Devils demanding at least £25m.

    However, they may struggle to raise those funds if they miss out on Champions League qualification.

    Smalling, who has spoken highly of his experience in Italy, could be tempted to return to England.

    And the Gunners, Spurs and the Toffees are all believed to be weighing up a summer move.
