Rosicky back for Napoli clash

Tomas Rosicky has been included in Arsenal’s squad for this evening’s visit of Napoli in the Champions League.

The midfielder has been out of action since he suffered a hamstring problem whilst on international duty with the Czech Republic last month.

However, the Gunners are still without Theo Walcott, Santi Cazorla, Yaya Sanogo, Lukas Podolski, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Abou Diaby through injury.

The club are set to come up against Gonzalo Higuain, who chose Naples over North London during the summer.

The Argentina international has scored three goals in six league games for Rafa Benitez’s men so far this season, helping them to second in the league.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have been linked with a move for Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul, according to the Express.

The club were reportedly on the lookout for a new number one during the summer, with Pepe Reina incidentally now on loan at Napoli, Queens Park Rangers Julio Cesar and Asmir Begovic of Stoke City some of the names said to have interested Arsene Wenger.

However, Netherlands international Krul, 25, has emerged as their top target, as the Premier League leaders seek for competition for Wojciech Sczcesny and Lukasz Fabianski.
