Good morning Arsenal fans

Arsenal legend Arsene Wenger suggested Benfica star and Gunners target Darwin Nunez may struggle in the Premier League.

Wenger told beIN SPORTS: “We spoke about Nunez before the game.

“That’s where you realise the physical power in the Premier League.

“What looks very quick in the Portuguese league suddenly when he was confronted with the pace and power of [Virgil] Van Dijk or [Ibrahima] Konate, he couldn’t cope.”

Meanwhile, Arsenal have suffered a significant transfer blow in their bid to sign Leeds star Kalvin Phillips in the summer.

Phillips is among the players that have been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates.

But the Gunners look set to miss out on the midfielder with Manchester United working on a deal to secure his signature.

Elsewhere, Robert Pires reckons Unai Emery should’ve been given more time as Arsenal boss.

He said: “It’s impossible to compare Emery and Arsene Wenger in their times at Arsenal.

“But the owner could have given him more time. It was difficult for him, especially with the language.

“I thought he did a good job at the time.

“Unfortunately for him and Arsenal they lost the 2019 Europa League final to Chelsea in Baku.

“The pressure on the manager is hard.”

Finally, Real Betis want to keep hold of Hector Bellerin, reports suggest.

Bellerin has spent this season on loan with Los Verdiblancos and has stood out at the club.

And now Mundo Deportivo claim Betis are eager to make his switch to Spain permanent.
