Arsenal Gossip

Arsenal are licking their wounds after a League Cup beating at the hands of Championship side Sheffield Wednesday.

Mathieu Flamini has urged fans to forget the defeat as quickly as possible, telling The Mirror: "We must forget about this one and move forward."

Meanwhile, the Daily Star are reporting that Bayer Leverkusen will not allow midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu to leave for less than £29m. The 21-year-old dead-ball specialist - hailed as 'the new Ozil' - is a transfer target for Arsenal, as well as Manchester United.

The Gunners are also being linked in the Daily Express with a £32.5m bid for Real Madrid midfielder Isco.

Arsenal will battle it out with Barcelona in January for the signature of Celta Vigo striker Nolito, claim Talksport. The 29-year-old has scored seven goals in nine La Liga games this season.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis has told the Express and Star that Arsenal's Serge Gnabry - on loan at the Hawthorns - is not "at the level" to play regularly in the Premier League.

Finally, the Daily Telegraph has compiled a list of the 20 most injured Premier League players since 2010. Arsenal supporters - and manager Arsene Wenger - might be alarmed to see just how many Gunners players make the list.
