Arsenal transfer news live: McAllister pleads, Martinelli ‘renew’ contract until 2027, Fulham close in on Cedric. | Jobs Vox


Good morning Arsenal fans

Arsenal’s medical staff are targeting a big return for Gabriel Jesus on February 25.

Jesus has been sidelined since undergoing knee surgery following an injury he sustained during the 2022 World Cup.

But the Gunners are confident they will return the striker before spring.

It means the Brazilian could return for the trip to Leicester.

Meanwhile, Arsenal will bring back Bucayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli, according to manager Mikel Arteta.

Both Sacca and Martinelli are expected to feature in the Gunners’ next Premier League clash at West Ham on Boxing Day.

Arteta said: “They will immediately get back into the rhythm, shape and form of the team.

“We are waiting for them and they are desperate to come back. I talked to both of them.

“Gabby [Martinelli] He was here today, with a big smile and a lot of energy. He’s ready to go again. This will be a great boost for the team.”

And Arsenal have opened transfer talks with Shakhtar Donetsk star Mykhailo Mudric.

But the Gunners are hoping Shakhtar will lower their asking price for Mudryk, which currently stands at £85m.

According to the Evening Standard, talks are underway for the winger over a deal early in the new year.

But the Ukrainian giants value the 21-year-old in the likes of Jack Grealish, who enjoyed a £100million move from Aston Villa to Manchester City in 2021.

However, Arsenal manager Arteta and the board are confident they are ready to turn down their bid for the Ukrainian international.

In the end, Martinelli extended his contract with the Emirates until 2027.

The winger’s current contract runs until 2024, although Arsenal have the option to extend it by a further two years.

According to SPORT, the Brazilian feels comfortable in the Emirates and wants to stay for another five years.

Martinelli has impressed in North London and attracted interest from some of the world’s biggest clubs, including Barcelona.
