A lot of rumours are flying around - and the transfer window is a month away from opening yet.

Latest to reach me is former Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher possibly joining Stoke.

Fletcher has been outstanding since joining West Brom in January 2015.

His contract is up and Baggies boss Tony Pulis said he wanted Fletcher to stay.

It will be interesting to see how that unfolds.

So what does the long-standing Arsenal manager have to say on the following...

Decision to stay: "I identify myself so much with the club. When you can be where you love to be, that's easy. It's difficult because you want to respond to the demands of all the people who love this club."

The fans: "Let's be together to support our players, to support the club and all give our absolute best to be at the level that we want to be. We can move up to the next level, I'm convinced of that, by having faith in the way we want to play football and by supporting the players we have already."

Kroenke: "Our ambitions are unlimited. We live in a very competitive world where you need the support of the owner. He's highly ambitious and supportive as well so, on that front, we are all united with exactly the same targets."

New signings: "We have a very heavy squad at the moment so maybe we might lose some players. We will work very hard to find the additions of top, top quality. I believe that our squad is very strong and we will only look for top-class people who can strengthen our team now."

Could football fan be proved right about Mahrez?

Calum McKenzie

BBC Local Live

An Arsenal fan who bought a shirt with Leicester forward Riyad Mahrez's name on the back last summer has said he "regrets" getting rid of it.

Asad Balal
Metro/ Asad Balal

Arsenal season ticket holder Asad Balal went viral on social media last summer after being pictured with the shirt, but his purchase proved in vain as Mahrez stayed with Leicester.

But the Algerian told Leicester on Tuesday he wanted to leave the club, sparking fresh speculation he could join Arsenal and prove Asad was right all along.

"I do regret getting rid of the shirt to charity," Mr Balal said.

"I saw the rumours as well and I was thinking you know what, what if it actually happens this year and I get to prove everyone wrong?"

Mr Balal added he would "100%" get another Mahrez shirt should the Gunners seal the deal this summer.

The sale of the original shirt raised £140 for an animal charity.
