Good morning Arsenal fans
Arsenal defeated Everton 4-0 in their Premier League clash at the Emirates.
The Gunners opened the scoring on 40 minutes with Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli doubled the North Londoners’ lead in the first minute of stoppage time.
Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard made it three in the 71st minute before Martinelli completed his brace after 80 minutes.
Meanwhile, Arsenal look set to go for West Ham superstar Declan Rice’s signature in the summer.
According to The Times, the Gunners have made Rice their priority target for the upcoming transfer window.
Manager Mikel Arteta still needs reinforcement in midfield despite the late arrival of Jorginho in January.
But the North Londoners are set for a bidding war over the England international, who is also eyed by Manchester United and Chelsea.
And Arsenal have been handed a major injury boost with Gabriel Jesus back in training and “pushing the boundaries” ahead of a highly anticipated return to action.
Jesus has been sidelined since the 2022 World Cup after hurting his knee while playing for Brazil in Qatar.
Arteta said: “He’s doing more and more on the field. The knee is not reacting, really positive. He’s pushing the boundaries right now.”
The Spanish tactician added: “We want him back as quick as possible, but also respecting the timescale that the doctors and the specialists are giving us.”
Finally, Arsenal star Kieran Tierney is open to joining Newcastle in the summer.
The decision comes after tumbling down the pecking order under Arteta, who prefers Oleksandr Zinchenko.
According to The Chronicle, the Magpies are keen on signing Tierney for next season.
The left-back is seen as the missing piece of Eddie Howe’s defensive jigsaw in place of Matt Targett.
