Wilshere facing one match ban

Jack Wilshere has been charged by the Football Association after raising his middle finger in the direction of home supporters in Arsenal’s 6-3 defeat at Manchester City on Saturday, according to the Mail Online.

Manager Arsene Wenger has said that the club will accept and punishment handed to the midfielder, who has until 6pm on Wednesday to respond.

The England international is likely to be handed a one-match suspension, which would see him miss Monday evening’s crucial top of the table clash with Chelsea.

Meanwhile, the club are considering a big money move for Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa, the Metro understands.
The 25 year old, who has fired in 22 goals for Diego Simeone’s side so far this season, is set to be monitored by Gunners’ scouts both this evening and at the weekend.

Though Lukas Podolski is edging in on a first team return, the club are reportedly keen on further bolstering their attacking options, as they look to clinch a first league title in ten years.

Elsewhere, Arsenal target Nicolas N’Koulou has ruled out leaving Marseille when the transfer window opens next month, after vowing to help the Ligue 1 side improve their current form, according to the Metro.
