Kieran Gibbs has been called up to the England squad for the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers against Montenegro and Poland after Ashley Cole was ruled out with a rib injury, Sky Sports understands.
The defender has not made and international appearance since he won his second cap in a friendly defeat to France three years ago, and will battle with Leighton Baines for the left-back slot.
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey believes that the pressure is on Tottenham Hotspur in the chase for Champions League qualification.
The Gunners dropped points in their quest for a top four finish after only managing a goalless draw with Everton at the Emirates on Tuesday, meaning that their fate is now out of their hands.
Arsenal are reportedly set to raid Barcelona with their £70 million transfer kitty in the summer, with as many as three players on Arsene Wenger’s radar.
However, the Express fail to mention David Villa in the piece, which links forward Alexis Sanchez, defender Martin Montoya and former Gunners midfielder Alex Song with moves to North London.
Arsene Wenger looks likely to decide against an approach for Alex Song, in favour of making a bid for Celtic’s Victor Wanyama, according to the Metro.
Song, who only left the Emirates for Barcelona seven months ago, has made little impact at the Nou Camp and reports suggest the Cameroon international would welcome a return to North London.
Reports in the Daily Express suggest that Alex Song could be on the verge of a shock return to the Emirates.
The midfielder left Arsenal for Barcelona in a £15 million deal last summer, but has only made ten league appearances for the Spanish Primera Liga leaders.
